Rockstar Games has slated Grand Theft Auto V‘s latest content pack, Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2, for a release across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC on Wednesday, July 8.
Arriving about a month after Part 1, the sequel’s latest add-on will herald the standard array of new weapons, cars, clothing and, perhaps most enticingly, the once-PC exclusive The Lab radio station for console owners. With the upcoming holiday weekend, the studio also pointed to GTA V‘s Independence Day-themed pack that was released last year, giving those who purchased the game on PC – or indeed PlayStation 4 and Xbox One via the remaster – an opportunity to light up the skies of Los Santos with the Firework Rocket Launcher.

To keep the momentum going after its launch, Rockstar also plans to host an Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 Social Event the weekend of release.
