New Improvements and More Coming to This Month’s GTA Online Update

With the end of the year just around the corner, we’d like to take this opportunity to once again thank our loyal community of enterprising criminals, creators and competitors of Grand Theft Auto Online, as well as provide some details on what to expect in the near future.

It was incredible to see you share Snapmatic photos of UFOs above the Los Santos skyline at our biggest Halloween event ever; see you vote for your favorite drink in the battle between Sprunk and eCola; see you enjoy the races and modes of the community series created by talented creators from around the world; and most recently racking up a staggering FOUR THOUSAND BILLION GTA$ in Heist Challenge.

As a result of this latest jaw-dropping milestone, a new vehicle, the retro Declasse Tahoma Coupe, will be available to all players for a limited time this month in the upcoming GTA Online update.

Based on a number of tweaks made throughout the year, and as part of our ongoing effort to improve the game based on player feedback, the GTA Online December Update will add a wide variety of new improvements to Freemode and not only. Many of which, in fact, suggested directly by you through the GTA Online Feedback site‎.‎

General improvements

  • Keep your favorite iFruit contacts close at hand: select which ones to show or hide via the Interaction menu.
  • The Benefactor Terrorbyte can be used to initiate sales missions in all session types, including invitational ones.
  • Play the Agatha’s Casino story missions solo by visiting the Diamond Resort and Casino Management Office (previously these missions required at least 2 players).
  • Ray-traced reflections will be added to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions, with real-time rendering of reflections on multiple surfaces, via the Graphic Fidelity setting.

Vehicle updates

  • Newly purchased vehicles will arrive in your garage faster than before.
  • A selection of custom armored vehicles can now be used in races where appropriate (weapons will be disabled outside of GTA races).
  • The bikes will be added to the list of vehicles that can be requested from your garage when you call the mechanic.
  • Players on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S can enjoy full access to Hao’s Special Works without having to complete Hao’s introductory race.

Game economy updates

  • Completing export vehicle sales missions in public sessions will grant a “High Demand” bonus, aligning it with all other trades, while smuggler sales mission payouts will be permanently tripled.
  • Get what you want faster with a worldwide increase in the GTA$ value of all Shark Prepaid Cards. Starting today, each denomination has been increased by 20-25% when purchased directly in GTA Online or through any of the shops on the various platforms. For special Shark Gift Cards for GTA+ members, this benefit will be in addition to the current 15% GTA$ bonus.‎

These and other experience improvements will be included in the next GTA Online update for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC, arriving later this month. Immerse yourself in the wild side of Blaine County, in the first installment of a massive multi-part update that will take advantage of the full extent of Southern San Andreas, with some familiar faces and a new crew of misfit entrepreneurs on a mission to expand the minds of the citizens of Los Santos, one trip at a time. Also, expect a fleet of new vehicles, World Events, Contact Missions, and more.

Thank you so much for playing such an important part in the continued growth and exciting new achievements of GTA Online, as well as for your valuable and constructive feedback. Please keep sending them to us, we look forward to implementing your ideas and requests as we continue to improve the GTA Online experience with each new update.
