GTA Online's weekly update brings another new vehicle from The ContractJan 20, 2022 - PCGamesNIt's Thursday, GTA fans, and you know what that means. GTA Online's weekly update is here, and while Rockstar Games hasn't put the official notes on the Newswire just yet, players have dipped into Los Santos to see what's new this week. The significant new addition this time is a fresh set of wheels. The Obey I-Wagen is now available to purchase from Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $1,720,000 in-game currency. Rockstar introduced the electric four-door mid-size crossover SUV to GTA Online as part of The Contract update, so you may have seen it already if you've been doing some work for Franklin. If you're looking to raise some dosh this week, though, you'll want to keep an eye out for Simeon's contact missions as they're paying out triple the usual rewards. Meanwhile, the South Central Leak investigation mission and Hardest Target adversary mode pay double the bonuses if you fancy a change of pace. The former is one of the missions from The Contract update, while the latter is a two-team mode where one member from each team starts with more armour. Read the rest of the story...

GTA Online's weekly update introduces a new game mode and motorcycle GTA Online's weekly update introduces a new game mode and motorcycleJan 13, 2022 - PCGamesNIt's Thursday in Los Santos, which means it's time for GTA Online's weekly update. It looks like we've got our usual raft of weekly discounts and goodies, though some neat additions that relate to the recent major update are the main standouts. Rockstar will have the full rundown on its website later today, but the update is already live, so fans have dug in - why wait, after all? This time around, one of the notable additions to the online game is the new Double Down adversary mode. One team of players with infinite lives and double-barrelled shotguns storm a location that Franklin and Lemar are tasked with holding down for four minutes. The duo only has one life to spare each, but they do have access to a much more extensive array of weaponry to make up for it. As it happens, the new mode is also offering triple rewards this week. You can now buy the Nagasaki Shinobi motorcycle if you fancy adding something else to your garage. The new set of wheels features in The Contract update and can now be picked up from Legendary Motorsport for $2,480,500 GTA bucks. Read the rest of the story...

The acquisition will be finalised some time before July, subject to approval by regulatory authorities.

That'll be helped along by Zynga's Chartboost advertising system and its "diverse array of titles that focus on many of the most popular genres in mobile gaming, including casual, hyper-casual, lifestyle, mid-core, puzzle, social casino, and sports games." "This strategic combination brings together our best-in-class console and PC franchises, with a market-leading, diversified mobile publishing platform that has a rich history of innovation and creativity," Take-Two CEO and chairman Strauss Zelnick says in the release.

As ever, we've got a good idea of what it brings courtesy of fans who have taken a look ahead of Rockstar Games' newswire post later today, and this week offers bonus rewards on a smattering of different modes and missions, as well a new round of discounts. First up, the latest weekly update is offering triple the usual GTA$ and RP on the Power Play adversary mode, as Tez2 notes on Twitter. In case you need a refresher, this is the deathmatch-like "turbocharged showdown between two teams", as per its description, which has players grabbing power-ups with zany effects to gain the edge over the other team. Preparations for the VIP Contracts, meanwhile, are offering double the regular rewards, along with the Nightlife Leak mission and Specialist+ level contracts. There's a new vehicle joining the game this week, too. The Comet S2 Cabrio (which will set you back $1,797,000 in-game bucks) has been added, while the latest GTA Online prize ride is the Euros two-door sports car. You can nab this by earning a top-three spot in nine Pursuit races. Read the rest of the story...

In September, Rockstar Games revealed that Grand Theft Auto V would be coming to next-generation consoles in 2022. Admittedly, the list of new features is pretty meek, with the trailer making vague promises like "improved graphics" and "seamless character switching", but the negative response was surprisingly comprehensive. You probably would have seen a better reaction from fans if Rockstar had unveiled a line of NFTs based on Trevor's stained underwear for GTA Online. At the time of writing, the trailer has 299,000 dislikes and just over 64,000 likes. It's not that Grand Theft Auto V isn't great, or that GTA Online doesn't get enough attention, but after eight years with no meaningful single-player updates people seem to be getting bored. Growing up with Grand Theft Auto has meant meeting colourful characters, travelling to iconic cities that capture a moment in time, and, er, abstaining from violent rampages every time a parent enters the room. The relatively recent addition of GTA Online gives you the pen to write your own story through street races and epic heists, but after so many years it's hard not to feel nostalgic for the joy of a new single-player adventure set in Rockstar's criminal sandbox.

Bully 2 may have been killed by stretching resources too thin, layoffs – reportDec 30, 2021 - VG247Game Informer’s Blake Hester published a detailed report all about the Bully 2 that might have been and what led to the studio developing the sequel’s downfall. In short, Rockstar New England was pulled in multiple directions to the point where Bully 2 was no longer the focus of the developers who worked there. Rockstar New England, which was purchased by Rockstar when the former was Mad Doc Software and was responsible for the next-gen remaster of the first Bully at the time, had ambitious plans for the sequel, a bigger, more characterized game that could stand alongside L.A. Noire and Grand Theft Auto 4 as a grand tentpole release worthy of the Rockstar name. It was not to be, though, as the studio got pulled in multiple directions, called on to assist with projects like Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3 and immersed in the crunch culture that came with working on those games. This caused many developers at Rockstar New England to leave, but the studio was also hit with layoffs, ensuring that Bully 2 wouldn’t see the light of day. It’s a shame, too, because the game was “six to eight hours playable”, though not shippable at that point.

It might sound slightly surprising that a game that’s eight years old is still topping the Twitch charts, but that’s because Twitch doesn’t differentiate between Grand Theft Auto 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online, the source of the former’s extremely long tail and a seemingly endless source of content for the streaming giant and those who use it. Other games that have staying power in the chat include League of Legends, Fortnite, and Valorant. Elsewhere in the report, the most-watched new IP came in at #18 in New World, Amazon’s popular MMORPG. And you can see a healthy dose of mobile games charting high numbers as well, like Call of Duty: Mobile and PUBG MOBILE.

Not only are the streets of Los Santos now caked in snow, but there are heaps of discounts and freebies to check out when you next log in. You've even got some new cars to stick in your garage if your wallet is fat enough (thanks, Tez2). Snow is a bit of a tradition in GTA Online and Red Dead Online. Not only does it give Los Santos a festive vibe, but you're free to run around the streets and toss snowballs at other players. GTA Online has been going for a few years now, so snow also brings about a hint of nostalgia, too, as we all get older. If you fancy a garage filler, the Overflod Zeno is now available for $2,820,000 GTA bucks from Legendary Motorsport. The car was introduced in the recent Contract update and is a two-door hypercar. The Gallivanter Baller ST is also here, and it's free between now and December 30. Rockstar introduced the luxury four-door SUV during GTA Online's latest update, featuring it prominently in a few missions with Dr Dre. Read the rest of the story...

GTA The Contract cars - price list for all vehicles GTA Online: The Contract - Out NowDec 17, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsJoin forces with one of Los Santos’ most famous hustlers and his friends in GTA Online: The Contract, an all-new adventure for solo players and groups, featuring the return of Grand Theft Auto V protagonist Franklin Clinton, manager of F. Clinton & Partner, a “celebrity solutions Agency” ready to fix the special kinds of problems plaguing the high rollers of Los Santos. With your partnership in the Agency, you’ll work alongside new and familiar faces including Franklin’s longtime friend Lamar Davis, his loyal sidekick Chop, and the Agency’s elite in-house hacker Imani. And in the Agency’s first A-List client contract, you’ll help Dr. Dre resolve a high-stakes theft. On the streets of Los Santos, Dr. Dre’s stolen phone is the talk of the town — word is the device is loaded with never-before-heard music from Dr. Dre’s as-yet unreleased work, which you’ll need to track down before it leaks to the world. This could make or break your Agency, and you’ll be the one getting your hands dirty. As you make headway with the investigation, you’ll discover new songs from the six-time Grammy Award-winning hip-hop legend, all premiering exclusively within this massive update to GTA Online. You’ll also get a rare inside look at Dr. Dre working his magic at Record A Studios, a new music studio where you can hang with Dr. Dre and a special guest artist, kick back, and get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the hit-making process. As part of your partnership investment in F. Clinton & Partner, you’ll acquire a new multi-floor, state-of-the-art office space, fitting for a high-end private solutions Agency. The property includes office space for the team and a dedicated lower level for vehicle storage. You can add further modification with an Armory to service your arsenal and a Vehicle Workshop that opens a new range of modifications ideal for completing contracts for clients. F. Clinton & Partner is new to the scene, and you’ll need to pick up Security Contracts for clients in need to gain experience and credibility. Recover valuables and vehicles, conduct daring rescue operations, defend high-value assets, and more. After completing a few Security Contracts, Franklin will reveal the Agency’s dirtier work in Payphone Hits — off-the-books, street-level assassinations with bonuses paid out for following specific instructions. These assignments demand a low-profile — you’ll pick up the details by answering payphones around Los Santos. In addition to a Concierge service at the Agency, you’ll be able to call Imani and Franklin from your iFruit in Freemode to make use of their unique services and abilities, as well as request Security Contracts and Payphone Hits from the road. The Contract has three new weapons, each a valuable instrument Franklin has accrued over his career. The Heavy Rifle is available at Ammu-Nation or to purchase and modify from your Agency’s Armory at a discount.

Franklin is married to Tanisha, they have kids, and Chop the dog is now old. Some things, though, stay the same - like Lamar roasting the hell out of Franklin. Once you complete all of Dr Dre's missions in The Contract update, you and a pal can play a special mission called Fire it Up as Franklin and Lamar. The task involves destroying the weed storages of one of Lamar's rivals in an act of revenge while the two bicker and banter as they do it. The real highlight, though, comes at the end. Once you drop Franklin off at his house, Lamar will roast him for not letting him in. If you've been out of the loop, fans have been modding a GTA 5 scene where Lamar roasts Franklin in various wonderful ways for a while now, though it really took off at the start of the year. The modified scenes typically involve various character swaps or duplicates, but the end result is always Franklin getting mugged off. Sometimes it's by a gang of Lamars, other times it's by Optimus Prime or Pingu. Heck, even Franklin and Lamar's voice actors got in on the fun. Read the rest of the story...

Grand Theft Auto V is over eight years old, though, so the odd reshuffle or addition of music is always appreciated. Happily, Rockstar Games is adding a new radio station and updating two more when The Contract lands this week. Motomami will be co-hosted by flamenco pop artist Rosalia and will feature tracks from Caroline Polachek, Daddy Yankee, Mr Fingers, and Aventura. You're also getting the first single from Rosalia's upcoming album, tracks from Arca, and an exclusive song from Bad Gyal. The first old station set for some TLC is Radio Los Santos. You're getting tracks from Hit-Boy, Freddie Gibbs, TiaCorine, Rich the Kid, Offset, and Mozzy. There's also music from Saweetie, Future, Tyler The Creator, Kodak Black, and others. Mike Dean and Schoolboy Q are making special cameos on the station, so expect some bickering or banter. Speaking of Schoolboy Q, you'll also hear a new single from his upcoming EP Let's Get It on the station. If you fancy hearing more from the EP, keep an eye out for CircoLoco Records USB collectables.
