New stuff and new sales are coming to Grand Theft Auto Online, including a new car and a slew of opportunities for in-game cash and rewards.
Hot off the presses of the Rockstar Games Social Club website comes the announcement that GTA Online will be getting a whole bunch stuff, starting with a brand new car: the Ubermacht Revolter.
It’s a slick new car with a forward mounted machine gun that looks like a cross between a newer Cadillac and a Buick, although given the name we can assume it has far more Germanic origins. Rockstar describes the car as "a vehicle that can blend inconspicuously into a line of executive luxury cars," but with "enough horsepower to hightail your way back to HQ" when the cops show up.
“Looks for the red carpet,” the fake ad is captioned. “Power for when the deal goes south.” According to the GTA wiki, you can pick one up at Legendary Motorsports for a cool $1,610,000.
Now come the rewards, and there are a lot of them. GTA’s Air Quota, the aerial combat mode where players jump in jets, helicopters, and all manner of flying devices to duke it out for control of the skies, will now offer players double GTA$ and RP rewards for participation.
Also, any Rockstar-made Stunt and Land Races will similarly earn double GTA$ and RP. Remember, this is Rockstar-made races only, so none of this player-made racing if you want to strike it rich.
There’s also huge rewards to be had in the new Premium and Time Trial races. The Premium Race is a return to “Tube Rider” locked in the Ruiner 2000, with the reward for being stuck in Knight Rider careening through a tube of death being triple RP, with the top three finishers earning bonus GTA$.
The Time Trial race is “Coast to Coast”, which is a race through "scenic coastal views of Blaine County." This one earns you bonus GTA$ and RP should you beat the par time.
And last but not least, Warstock Cache & Carry is having a huge sale. MkII customizations and upgrades are 25% off, including:
