It wouldn’t be the holiday season without a GTA Online update, however, this is more than just the usual Christmas update which would have been the typical addition of: snow, a new Christmas-themed vehicle, and some kind of event. This year, it seems we’re being treated to a brand new business, vehicles, and even some new weapons too!
We were given a video that saw the return of Franklin Clinton from GTA V‘s story mode along with his pal Lamar Davis (though he’s already in GTA Online) and everyone’s beloved pooch, Chop! It seems since the story concluded Franklin has gone into business working with celebrity clients and that is where Dr. Dre enters. For those who want to see the trailer, you can find it here. We will be continuing to discuss it, however, so don’t think we’re done here just yet.
Thanks to GTA Series Videos, we know that one of the new missions will center around retrieving Dr. Dre’s stolen mobile phone…Maybe he has some pictures of his dog on there he needs back? Nonetheless, it’s interesting to see Dre look so much like his real self; Hopefully, this isn’t just a character we’ll be seeing in a cutscene here and there.
GTA Series also revealed that we’ll also see the addition of new weapons too, the main weapon that’s actually new is the compact EMP launcher. The Stun Gun saw usage in the story mode and used to be able to be glitched into GTA Online. Another addition to this update will be that another brand new radio station as well as some changes to the current ones.
It is also worth noting that every GTA Online update always costs a hefty amount of GTA dollars, so if you need to jump on and earn yourself some spending money to be able to afford this update you’ve got until the 15th of December to do it! Keep in mind that it hasn’t been revealed just how much this new building will cost or either the two new vehicles either. With this updates theme being celebrities and high-rollers; I’ve already taken the liberty of dressing my character up to look the part.
On the topic of clothing, it’s worth noting that although it hasn’t been announced we could also be getting some additional items with this update as it’s the norm’ with Rockstar. They tend to throw clothing in along with the latest asset you can buy.
As it stands this could possibly be as good as my favorite GTA Online update (which was Nightlife, the one that brought in Night Clubs) and could possibly bring back some old players to this game once again.
