Rockstar confirm long awaited return of Bully


Nostalgia overload

Rockstar fans are in for a treat, as the video game company has announced some cracking additions to their GTA Plus scheme.

The scheme is what allows gamers to play GTA Online on both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox, but it comes with a whole load of extra bonuses too.

Some of these bonuses include extra games to play, and they have some corkers lined up for later in the year.

The company has confirmed that Bully is set to come onto the scheme, alongside LA Noire.

“We recently added Red Dead Redemption — with access to Undead Nightmare — to the stellar Games Included With GTA+ library, and Members can look forward to more Rockstar classics becoming available later this year, including L.A. Noire and Bully,” Rockstar announced.

Bully was first released back in 2006, and has long been considered a classic Rockstar game.

It allows users to play as James “Jimmy” Hopkins after starting at Bullworth Academy boarding school, and try to climb the ranks in order to end bullying.

The open-world game was first created by Rockstar Vancouver for the PlayStation 2, but was later re-released for PlayStation4.

Fans have long been calling for a sequel to the game, with rumblings of a second instalment occurring back in 2018. However, it seems those have never come to fruition, despite a leak of a GTA 5 database file reportedly showing references to Bully 2.

The other offering that is coming to GTA Plus, LA Noire, is a 2011 open-world game that comes from Team Bondi. Set in Los Angeles in 1947, the game follows detective Cole Phelps’s rise in the Los Angeles Police Department.
