Latest 'Grand Theft Auto Online' Update Adds In Dozens Of New Items
No one can say that Rockstar hasn't been supporting its games: Grand Theft Auto Online is basically a different game than the one that launched back in 2013. What used to be a way for friends to wander around and cause trouble now features customizable yachts, free-roaming challenges and an entire arsenal of new weapons to choose from — and Rockstar doesn't seem like it'll be slowing down anytime soon.
The latest free update for Grand Theft Auto Online, the Lowriders: Custom Classics pack, just launched earlier today — and just like every other piece of the game's DLC, there's a bunch of new toys with which players can mess around.
As the title implies, the main focus here is on new customizable lowriders. Three cars — the Slamvan pickup truck, the Virgo cruiser and Donk monster truck — now feature new lowrider variants, complete with all the customization options that players are used to. All it takes to upgrade is a quick trip to Benny's Custom Motorsport, and you're set — just make sure to have a bit of spare cash handy before you head over.
Of course, it just wouldn't be a GTA Online update without a few new weapons: the Compact Rifle and Double-Barrelled Shotgun can now be purchased from any Ammu-Nation store. Rockstar has also included a number of new tattoos and hairstyles for both male and female players.
The "Sumo" Adversary Mode could end up being the best part of the update. This isn't just some ordinary sumo match — instead of regular people going one-on-one, GTA Online's take on sumo wrestling has two high-powered vehicles trying to push and smash each other out of the ring. From Rockstar:
"The new Sumo Adversary Mode has players working (either alone or in teams) to force the opposition out of the designated arena. Whether it's size, speed, or control — players must choose a vehicle that suits their playstyle and be the last team remaining in the arena before the clock runs out to win."
It's already a big update, but Rockstar's already teasing the game's next DLC pack — according to the trailer, players should expect to see more Lowriders content soon.
Again, every part of the Lowriders: Custom Classics pack is free: the update should download as soon as you boot up Grand Theft Auto V.
