Vespucci Beach Party: GTA Online Social Club Event Weekend

Posted on November 21 2013, 9:29pm | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Update: Due to ongoing technical issues preventing some players from joining, we have removed the Vespucci Beach Party Event Playlist for the remainder of this weekend. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please note that the Event Crate Drops with extra RP in Free Mode and the Sweepstakes are still in effect through the end of the weekend.

This weekend, Friday November 22nd through Sunday November 24th, hit the beaches of Vespucci, Chumash and Paleto Bay for the very first Grand Theft Auto Online Social Club Event Weekend.

All weekend long, plunge into a special Social Club Event Playlist of brand new Jobs from the freshly landed Beach Bum Pack, a hand-picked selection of ten of our favorite new Jobs. Drop some sea shells, go for a fuel-injected run on the beach, and take in some of the most spectacular stretches of coastline in the Los Santos Bay area in modes including Sea Race, Parachute, Team Deathmatch and more. The best performers in the Social Club Event Playlist on each platform will score themselves a special vanity license plate reward for bragging rights and to commemorate their achievement.

In Free Roam, look out for an influx of special Event Crate Drops dropping frequently all weekend containing more than double the usual amount of RP plus high-powered weapons, bonus cash and clothing. They'll be unlocked for every player to help you pack more than just sunscreen on the blazing sands.

This inaugural GTA Online Social Club Event also features exclusive sweepstakes giveaways of beach-ready GTAV collectibles, a very special live stream broadcast on Friday and more. We'll be on the lookout for your sun-kissed Snapmatic pics all weekend so be sure to tag them #VespucciBeachParty so that we can find them easily and we might feature them next week here at the Newswire.


Here’s a full rundown of all the action to expect:

Special Event Playlist

Available this weekend only is a special Social Club Event Playlist of new Jobs curated to test your mastery of land, air and sea:

  • View of Vespucci (Parachute)

Show some Vespucci beach bums the true meaning of 'spaced out' with this steep parachute descent from 2980ft. See how many checkpoints you can hit before opening your 'chute.

  • Up the Creek (Bike Race)

Dirt bike point to point going along Cassidy Creek and ending at the Alamo Sea. Shred from gravel and pavement to the beachfront and try to trump the rest for fame and fortune.

  • Water Rings (Sea Race)

A challenging and scenic boat race weaving around the islands North of Paleto Bay. Tip: Look out for a ramp to help you get one over on your competitors.

  • Vespucci Beachfront (Team Deathmatch)

Stop the gentrification of Vespucci Beach dead in its tracks with this Team Deathmatch around and on top of the businesses along the beachfront.

  • Grass Route II (Race)

In this sequel to the original popular Grass Route Race, go off-road in an epic heat starting on the North bank of the Zancudo River through the treacherous wetlands with a triumphant finish on the beach in North Chumash.

  • Sundae Driving (Bike Race)

Sure to be a new fan-favorite motorbike race, menace Vespucci Beach on your two-wheel rocket, taking breakneck corners as you try and best the competition.

  • Procopio Beach (Team Deathmatch)

Home to an infamous truck stop, Procopio Beach has long been known as a place where people come to blow off steam, and this Team Deathmatch along the shoreline at the foot of Mt. Gordo is no exception.                                                          

  • Gone Coastal (Sea Race)

Hug the coastline, pull off some breakneck turns and leap over treacherous rocks and islets in this rough race that starts in the LS River and takes you through the Palomino Highlands on the East Coast.

  • Turn the Tide (Race)

In this off road Race along the coast, up to sixteen speed demons leg it out across Procopio Beach and the North coast down through Paleto State Beach to Paleto Cove.        

  • The Cove (Parachute)

Enjoy the stunning vistas as you rapidly descend towards Paleto Cove by Mount Chiliad... but not so much that you forget to open your chute. Prepare for a long free fall from 7500ft, weaving and diving between checkpoints and the drop zone.

Three Ways to Join

  • Look out for the button prompt in the initial GTAV loading screen (visible to Social Club members only)
  • Follow instructions on the loading screen when transitioning into GTA Online from Story Mode (also only visible to Social Club members)
  • Select Online > Playlists > Rockstar Playlists > Vespucci Beach Party on the GTA Online Start Menu

        My annoying little nephew has been badgering me to post a comment on future additions. The only such addition that he has told me is to bring the tow-trucks back into it without the glitches. I hope he will stop pestering me because I love him and it would be a shame to find him buried somewhere in the middle of nowhere.

                    Just a thought, what about a hunting pack of some sort? maybe you could add the hunting outfits into GTA Online and maybe have some hunting rifles without scopes, like those of RDR? And, of course, animals and challenges. Like I said, just a thought.

                        Rockstar, can you please release some information on when the PROMISED DLC is going to be coming out? Even just a simple timeline. A "Hey! We know you guys are getting antsy, but we're working on something and we hope to have some news about it by ______________!"

                        It's understandable that glitchers and hackers have made the product something different than what you originally intended, but millions of people bought this game with the promise of doing Heists online with their friends. There has been ZERO information put forth since launch. The only 'news' we have gotten is "coming soon" - and it's been two months since launch. Some information on DLC would be much appreciated, much more than the dead silence we've received so far.

                        It's a shame GTA:O is in such shambles because RDR multi-player was fantastic.

                        We need a posse system implemented, as well.

                          Nope, I didn't glitch. I've made it to level 95 100% legitimately. Missions, death matches, and a few races here and there.

                          Nah, no glitching for me. You cant see my stats because I don't share my RSC profile with anyone but friends on the RSC. We're not friends, hence you not seeing my stats.

                          and my comment was written literally like five minutes before that blog entry was posted. So, your assumptions are about as useful as an a$$hole on an elbow, ya know?

                        Honestly R*

                        I feel like you guys are LACKIN'

                        Where's the NEW CONTENT? Where are the online Heists? Why don't we get ANY NEW jobs after rank 81?

                        I STILL love the GTA V experience.... But there should be SO MUCH MORE NEW CONTENT IMHO.

                          @thehomiebishop Agreed. The fact that they are so silent about it really bothers me. Even if their development team is "hard at work" it takes less than a minute to send out a tweet, you know?

                                @noobskywalker514 Yeah, they didn't bother to even update this thread with a small bit of info as to what they are doing with it. Lack of updates on this issue is definitely annoying, guess there are too many pics to look at rather than post an update.
