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.

    So heists need to start being able to be done by two players instead of four. I cant even complete ONE HEIST because no one wants to join my setup missions. bulls**t. fix this.

      We should ha r more weather options like sand storms, hurricanes, also should b able go in more buiing like freemode we should be able to go in banks and rob them on gta 5. and I agree as PS3 person they should have all frauds going on Xbox 1 and ps4 onto PS3 an box 360 as it is waist money to upgrade. If rockstar can read this I think should be kept on for all the gta 5 fans. Also we Gould have more cars and military vehicles. More online misson or side mission at least too

      Thanks and hope we have more new options in future on gta 5 for all older and newer consoles :)

At arms but u know what I mean and we should some new Harley Davison maybe 4to3 vehicles I hope to here back from u rockstar and one lat question do u already have a biker vest in the new hiest dlc?

          As a designer myself I would like to see a lot of new stuff available. The first that springs to mind is wing suits, that couldn't be difficult to set up??
          A couple of nights ago I had a party at Eclipse Towers and a few of us (well me) thought it would be a kool idea to have a store like IKEA but called IDEA or something similar and people like myself could contribute ideas for the common good (old hippy here, lol). The upshot of that is that we all get to have individual apartments which as I am sure you will agree will enhance the game. I would be more than happy to contribute ideas. I already have over a 100 Sketch-Up designs of various architectural wonders, including pallet and recycled materials furniture etc (that I build).
          I have just got a PS4 for Christmas so pretty soon I'll be making the jump across to the big guy. Just waiting for a few of my friends to get the console too. But still completely enjoying PS3 GTA V Online. My nicc is AidyMadd, look me up and lets have some fun!!
          • aidymaddon January 13 2015, 9:51amReplyFlag
            @aidymadd As an after thought, I have also created some pretty good cycle and motorcycle races in the Creator Mode too....
            Look me up and I'll introduce you to them. Prepare to be Hornsnaggled, lol!!

            @aidymadd Rockstar already have "IKEA" in the GTA HD World since GTA IV. The spoof It's called Krapea.

          • maskedrevengeron January 30 2015, 10:11pmReplyFlag
            @aidymadd Most of the furnitures, if not all the pieces of furnitures in the Low and Mid End apartments could infact be made by Krapea. Perhaps due to the cause that they look like the cheapest IKEA furnitures.

            Why do all the people who have PS3 and Xbox 360's have to miss out on what people on next gen get online? Like not everyone can afford new consoles every year we feel left out because we don't get all these new stuff like neons and cars from the old gta's people will lose interest because we all feel like that no one cares about us now because next gen came out. There are people who don't have a brand new ps4/xbox 1. I hope someone in rockstar reads this and relises that there are people missing out and it's not far that we have to fork out more n more money we don't have to get these new stuff!

              @DRYICE117 The PS3 and 360 have a certain limitation to how much stuff can be added to GTA Online. For example, Neon Lights. Eventually some later time the PS4 may not be able to handle the later GTA's and we will probably need a PS5.

              @DRYICE117 According to rockstars twitter page they plan to give ps4 and 360 updates for aslong as possible but We might miss out on some and there will be a time where it cant be done due to different software added to next gen

                @DRYICE117 Neon lights arent on PS3 and 360 because theres not enough network memory to run them. They aren't purposely holding back on PS3 and 360. The old system can't handle all the additions to PS4 or XBOX One

                They should make racing less glitchy. And they should make the original loading screen faster. It always takes around 5 min to load online and that's too long. Also they should fix the issue when someone launches a job and it launches the session non stop and you have to shut off your Xbox.
                Thanks.

                        I hope that they add some old, classic cars and some new ways to make money then just missions, simion and shark cards. Hover craft would be just AWESOME! I allso hope that when heists finaly comes you can plan it step by step your self, desaid your approach and way to execute the heist.
