Grand Theft Auto Online Spring Updates

Posted on April 2 2014, 11:12am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games


Running out of space to store all your vehicles or just looking for another place to chill? You’ll soon be able to own multiple properties in GTA Online as part of the forthcoming High Life Update.

Get ready for lots of exciting Grand Theft Auto Online updates to be added throughout the spring and beyond. Here's a brief rundown of some of the new content, features, and enhancements that you can expect to see barreling down the La Puerta Freeway in the months to come.
 
SPRING GAME UPDATES
 
Capture Creator: Coming next week, the Creator community will be able to make their own original customized Capture Jobs and add to the over 3.5 million (and counting) player-created Deathmatches and Races currently available on Social Club. Strategically place pick-ups, define weaponry, set location, and tweak tons of other variables to make your own unique Capture Job for others to take on. We will also be reviewing your homemade Capture creations to stamp standout experiences as Rockstar Verified.
 
The High Life Update: The High Life Update will allow you to expand your foothold in Los Santos with new high-end apartment options, the powerful Bullpup Rifle, new wardrobe items, the Dinka Thrust motorcycle and three new lavish cars to choose from, including the Super class Pegassi Zentorno. The High Life Update will also feature the debut of multi-property ownership in GTA Online, which means you'll be able to own two distinct properties (with garages) simultaneously. All this plus the new Mental State player statistic, which is designed to let you see just how passive or psychotically unhinged fellow players in your session really are, and a slew of new Jobs.
 
Heists: Coming this spring to Grand Theft Auto Online, team up with your most trusted Crew members or with random other mercenaries in Grand Theft Auto Online to pull off cooperative Heist Missions for glory and profit. We know many in the GTA Online community have been looking forward to this update — stay tuned for much more information to come.
                                                      
And later this year, look for even more additions to both Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V, including more holiday-themed updates, some very exciting Story Mode DLC and much more.

CONTINUING REFINEMENTS BASED ON YOUR FEEDBACK
 
Ever since the launch of GTA Online, we've been continuously monitoring how the community is playing the game as well as all player feedback sent to us at our GTAOnline@rockstargames.com address to see what you’re liking, disliking, and what should be addressed in upcoming GTA Online Title Updates.
 
A recent update addressed an issue that we saw with the way motorcycles and bikes handled while in the air. As it turned out, many members of the GTA stunting community were disappointed to discover that this fix made pulling off certain popular bike tricks and stunts virtually impossible, so we're going to be restoring the original in-air motorcycle/bike physics in an upcoming Title Update. In general, we are open to keeping unintended ‘glitches’ in the game if players enjoy them and they aren’t causing any negative impact to gameplay or fairness in any way.

There are many other ongoing improvements to expect as we continue to dedicate attention towards refining and ensuring the most fair and fun experience possible for everyone. In upcoming Title Updates and via dynamic tuning, you can expect: 
 
  • The addition of a 'Non-Contact' option for Races. This will allow you to play standard Races with collisions disabled between player vehicles. Other players will appear as semi-transparent and you'll still be able to collide with non-player traffic, structures and other scenery, but this mode - for those who want to play it - will eliminate the "rubbing is racing" mentality that some wish to avoid.
  • Players will be able to call Lester and have him tell his cop buddies to turn a blind eye to any crime you may or may not be committing for a short period of time.
  • As a reward for players who leave feedback on Jobs, there will be some bonus RP granted every time a player likes or dislikes content after playing it. 
  • GTA$ payouts will be increased when completing Parachute, Races, Deathmatches and LTS Jobs with less than 4 players. 
  • As part of our ongoing commitment to target cheaters and keep the game as fair as possible, we are closing RP exploits and will be adjusting the RP totals of players who we know for certain to have gained illegitimate RP by cheating. Your RP will only be adjusted if you participated in mods, hacks, DNS redirects, manipulation of cloud files, or other similarly nefarious behavior. If you grinded short legitimate missions or otherwise gained a small amount of RP without modding, your RP should not be affected by this correction.
  • We’ll be fixing the issue where players who had upgraded personal vehicles prior to Title Update 1.10 were only able to sell them for $10,000.

These are just a few of the ongoing tweaks and enhancements in the works — and as mentioned above, we are interested in hearing what YOU want to see, so please hit us up and let us know what you'd like to see added to the world of Grand Theft Auto Online.

    Also I hate that they made tanks weak because now.Everybody just getting jets and its unfair because you can fight back because all they do is go all the way in the air and dive bomb you and now that tanks are weak you get killed with one shot.

          I feel like there should be able to have familys to protect like on "Story Mode" ( Michael ) and also should be allowed to have pets OTHER than Chop (online) and should have better GIRL clothes like in Rue21 or Body Shop. should have better dresses . On story mode be able to buy different houses. On online you should be able to buy things for your house. For music i feel like Kevin Gates , Nicki Minaj , Lil Boosie , Lil Wayne , ASAP Rocky , Ariana Grande , Beyonce , August Alsina , Wiz Khalifa and Trey Songz should be on the radio Stations . Better SnapBacks . You should be able to buy fast food (Mcdonalds , Burger King , Popeyes) . Jordans , Nike and Roshe's should be in the shoes. Boots should be able to go over Jeans (girls) . Should have a mall to buy things !

                      I love GTA online but I'm still waiting on long hair for female characters. It's something that I have wanted since the game first came out, I would love to see it in the next dlc along with zombies. Zombie apocalypse would be nice.

                      Hi guys. First of all I love GTA Online and know you do an amazing job with it. It's a virtual world I look forward to going into every time. The only thing I dislike is the inability to customise your own apartment. I would like to see a simple way of customising any property we buy so it can be original to every character. Also a Girlfriend DLC would be a cool idea where you could drive around robbing place with your crazy GF. Thanks anyway guys. Keep it coming. Looking forward to heists.

                              Rockstar it has been long enough why can't you give people what they want we bought this game that you produce and its your job to give the consumer or customer what they want i understand that you have a lot on your plate but it is obvious that you can do new updates but to be honest no of us have asked for it. yes we appreciate you have given us updates and they are nice but people are going onto there game saying there is a new update. And there so excited because they think it is going to be the heist update.sharks,pets etc. i am just going to say i am disappointed. I wish you could actually tell people if there is problem and then we wouldn't be so disappointed with you.

                                    Rockstar should add the 1967 Chevy Impala muscle 4 door to the game both in story mode and Online along with an update for all new muscle cars. I know for a fact that a lot of people have been waiting for rockstar to put an update out like this. I dont know if this specific car is already in the game or not it is very hard to find a car similar to it in the game. I do know that if rockstar does listen to me a lot of people would love this addition to game. Considering that this car is very hard to find in the real world.
