Newest update gives the game even more things to chase.
Red Dead Redemption 2 and its online counterpart may be the newest thing on the block, but Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online, the online component that has in many ways grown to overshadow the main campaign, is still very much alive.
Since its launch, Rockstar has continued to bolster the online mode with new content, including most recently the Arena War Update. The newest update for GTA Online wants to make sure people keep coming back, with more unlocks, awards, rewards, premium race, and bonus XP events, as the company revealed today.
GTA Online bonuses are available across a variety of vehicular modes and Gunrunning Sales this week, in addition to boosts in Gunrunning Research, a free unlockable cap, discounts, and featured Premium Races payouts.
Kicking things off in a big way is Motor Wars, currently dealing out 3X GTA$ & RP this week for jumping into its team-based matches for up to 28 players. Players can also score Double GTA$ and RP bonuses during the same time period in the power-up fueled Vehicle Vendetta, or the speed and teamwork-focused Hunting Pack (Remix).
Would-be arms dealers can benefit from a 25% boost in Gunrunning Research and 2X GTA$ on all Gunrunning Sales this week, and any player that logs into GTA Online can look forward to unlocking the Black Coil Cap for free.
Grand Theft Auto 5, with Grand Theft Auto Online, is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It’s one of the most successful games of all time, reaching 100 million units shipped last year, and has been a constant presence on sales charts from its original PS3 and Xbox 360 release in 2013.
