GTA V Gets Trolled Hard

GTA V Gets Trolled Hard

You can’t get GTA V on Steam today, but you can get GATV, a pack of downloadable content for Saints Row 4 that seems to have been created just to troll Rockstar.

The developers at Volition have always had a cheeky sense of humour, and this is pretty much the perfect prank: unbeatable promotion for their open-world game on release day for the world’s biggest open-world game. The DLC is free for today only too.

Saints Row publisher Deep Silver has even paid to promote the tag #GATV on Twitter today, leading to a lot of confused reactions:

D-day for gamers!! #GATV is out today! Did you get the game at midnight?

Why is GATV promoted by saints row?

The fact that “GATV” is trending leaves me little hope for humanity. There are FOUR letters to abbreviate this game, and you can’t manage it

Saints Row is promoting “#GATV“… Like… Y’all spelled it wrong… AND it’s a separate game… I don’t understand.

I think that no one has realised that #GATV is misspelled is what’s wrong with society.
