The Business Weekend Social Club Online Event

Posted on March 5 2014, 10:53am | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Get yourself a sharp suit, a fast car and a pair of shoes made from the skin of a cobra: it's time for some capitalism punishment in the Business Weekend Social Club Online Event, this Friday March 7th through Sunday March 9th.

High-end cars and rarefied recreational activities are on the menu, featuring a diverse portfolio of in-game benefits like bonus RP and GTA$ payouts for Land Races and Air Races respectively - and high powered weapons literally falling from the sky in Event Crate Drops all weekend. Also, there'll be chances to score rare GTAV gear in the Social Club Los Santos Better Business Sweepstakes and in-game GTA$1M and the exclusive 'BUSINESS' vanity plate in the #BUSINESS Snapmatic Contest. There'll also be special Event Weekend live-stream broadcasts starting this Friday afternoon with the official Rockstar show, featuring special guests and fun with the new plane, cars, guns and Jobs included in The Business Update - and continuing throughout the weekend with featured guest streams to be announced hosted by some notable Crews on YouTube and Twitch.
 

IN-GAME REWARDS AND BONUSES

Acquire the new blazing fast sports cars, Vestra aircraft, and powerful weaponry that are now available in The Business Update, and also reap special in-game rewards and bonuses right through the weekend including:

  • 50% more RP in all Land Races, providing the ideal opportunity to open up that brand new Albany Alpha, Dinka Jester and Grotti Turismo R.
     
  • 50% higher GTA$ payouts in all Air Races - a frequent flyer bonus for those who thrive in the skies of Los Santos.
     
  • High Priority Vehicle - Simeon has spotted a rush in demand for company cars and has put the call out for Ocelot Jackals this weekend. Wait for his text, grab the car and fight your way back to the docks for a nice GTA$ boost.
     
  • Event Crate Drops - Bonus Event Crate Drops will be falling from the skies regularly in the Downtown Los Santos financial district as well as around the airfields of Los Santos and Blaine County. This weekend, the Crates will be stuffed with RPGs, Miniguns, Sticky Bombs and more RP than ever - with up to 8000RP in every Crate.
     

#BUSINESS SNAPMATIC CONTEST

Tag your best shots between now and end of day Sunday with #BUSINESS showing off your most creative, most awesome, and most beautifully composed moments featuring any of the new cars, guns, aircraft, gear or Jobs from The Business Update. We'll pick five (5) favorites to award GTA$1M in in-game financial dividends as well as the exclusive 'BUSINESS' in-game vanity license plate so you can always roll around Los Santos like a boss.

        R* It says double points and xp May 7-9.... I played all three days and no Double Money or XP at all. why?

          So I read some of the comets of what people posted and it would be cool to have the samurai sword back, and to be able to date online girls in the game. Another thing is, if you guys made a country side to it then why not put some animals in online to make it look alive like it is in the story mode and living things in the water. What I also want to say is being able to customize the planes, and helicopters that we can buy would be awesome also adding to extra car modifications like having nitro like it is in the game of San Andreas, putting sirens on your car witch would be REALLY cool and to have Hydraulics on the cars. I will keep you guys posted if I come up with any more good I ideas to add to the game.

            Yo, what's up rockstar, I really think you should make a rockstar social club app for Apple or android so it makes users easier to access the club.

                      I would love if you guys could make a zombie mode at the loading screen where you see ONLINE and Story Mode you guys should make a zombie map where all the civilians are zombies..and if the online players get bite they turn to a zombie and be able to chase other players and they cant turn back to a human until they get wasted...it would be that flame...Million dollar idea...TRY IT!

                        Hi there, I think in your updates it would be a good thing to add a heath pack in the properties like you have in the single player game, cause i don't see the point to to have a flat where you can get your character to have a shower or even got to bed if it does not heal him.

                                  Rockstar, The game is great but please take in for considering that we can store police cars utility ones too. Also being able to buy the cargobob and more customization such as gloves,gas masks,face masks, and hoodies with the hoods up. It maybe a lot but it seams lts what people want, besides the high life update or next update.
