The High Life Update for GTA Online Is Now Available

Posted on May 13 2014, 6:30am | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Games

The High Life Update is here – you can now download the latest update to Grand Theft Auto Online featuring tons of brand new content along with some exciting features added to the game experience.

The High Life Update gives you the chance to live large in Los Santos with the ability to own two properties at any one time, and the addition of five opulent new apartments. Add to your real estate portfolio with hot new listings at Eclipse Towers in Vinewood, Richards Majestic in Rockford Hills, Tinsel Towers in Little Seoul, 4 Integrity Way in Downtown, and Del Perro Heights by the beach. As always, just drive up to the new property location sale and follow the prompts, or head to Dynasty8realestate.com to look for your next purchase.

Now that you can store vehicles across two apartment garages, you’ll be looking to put something new and shiny in them and The High Life Update offers a trio of luxury cars and a blistering new motorbike to add to your collection. The Enus Huntley S (SUV), Dewbauchee Massacro (Sports), Pegassi Zentorno (Super) and Dinka Thrust (Motorcycle) are all now available to purchase from Legendary Motorsport. Remember, these vehicles can also be accessed from any garage in Story Mode, adding a new spin to your mission replays.

And because success breeds jealousy, the powerful Bullpup Rifle is now available in Ammu-Nation to help you protect your assets.

Gear up with the all-new vehicles and weaponry to take on brand new Rockstar-created Jobs in GTA Online, including 8 new Contact missions listed below. These new Jobs are now available to play and stay tuned as there are even more being published soon including Capture, Survival, TDM and Last Team Standing mode Jobs. For Contact missions, once you meet the rank requirement you'll receive a phone call from the associated Contact.

Contact: GTA Today (Simeon: Rank 12) | Artificial Scarcity (Madrazo: Rank 19) | Crime Scenester (Lester: Rank 20) | Hit ‘Em Up (Gerald: Rank 10) | Master Data (Lester: Rank 16) | Handle with Care (Madrazo: Rank 20) | On the List (Madrazo: Rank 18) | Denial of Service (Lester: Rank 14)
Land Race: Stock Market Crash | Loss Leader | Home In The Hills | Thrusting Motion

High Life also introduces many new game features and enhancements including some updates directly based on feedback from you, the GTA Online community (remember to keep your feedback coming to GTAOnline@rockstargames.com where we’re always reviewing your input for consideration).

  • With the new Mental State stat, we are keeping track of your behavior. If you seem to enjoy attacking pedestrians and terrorizing other players, then your blip will start to turn red on other players’ maps. The redder the blip, the more psychotic the player; the whiter the blip, the friendlier they are.
    The actions you take will have varying effects on your Mental State. For example, killing another player will turn your blip red faster than blowing up a car or taking out a random pedestrian. Killing a player with a white blip will push your Mental State into the red faster than killing more psycho players, while taking out full-on psycho players won’t cause your own Mental State stat to increase at all.
    Mental state also factors into matchmaking - you’ll automatically join Freemode sessions containing people more ‘compatible’ with your play style, and if a red-blipped lunatic does enter your session, you at least have fair warning!
     
  • Non-Contact Races are now an option. When you create a Non-Contact race, other racers appear as semi-transparent and collisions with them are disabled (although you'll still be able to collide with non-player traffic, structures and other scenery).
     
  • You now have the option to Friend Spectate – if you and a friend are in separate GTA Online sessions you can now choose to spectate that player through the Friends menu.
     
  • New player toasts and celebrations: Switch out your salute for jazz hands, a face palm, a slow clap and more. There are also paired toasts for celebrating with a friend, like a backslap, or a solid, manly handshake.
     
  • New clothing: It can be hard work finding the perfect ensemble to really make your character stand out, so we’ve done some of the hard work for you and put together some stylish outfits. Hit the town, dressed to the nines with an array of classy new suit sets available with a pret-a-porter jacket, trousers, suit vest and shoes.
     
  • 10 additional vehicles from Story Mode are now available for the first time in GTA Online – these will be marked on the car sales websites as new in the High Life Update so you can find them easily at southernsanandreassuperautos.com and legendarymotorsport.net:
    • Bravado Banshee Topless
    • Inverto Coquette Topless
    • Vapid Dominator Ocelot F620
    • Schyster Fusilade
    • Maibatsu Penumbra
    • Ubermacht Sentinel XS
    • Ubermacht Sentinel (Convertible)
    • Grotti Stinger Topless
    • Coil Voltic Topless

Today’s update 1.13 also includes some improvements and fixes including:

  • Based on feedback from the stunting community, the changes to bike physics in a recent Title Update have been reverted.
  • Fixed an exploit where players were able to shoot in their garages.
  • Fixed an issue where players would occasionally not be able to reclaim a vehicle despite it being insured.
  • Fixed an issue where the water cannon on the Fire Truck did not work correctly.

For the full list of fixes, you can view Title Update notes at the Rockstar Support site.

To download today's free update, fire up your connected PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, start GTAV and download the automatic update (1.13) when prompted (Xbox 360 players will also be required to download an additional compatibility pack upon entering GTA Online).

Also stay tuned here at the Newswire for details on the High Life Weekend Social Club Event starting this Friday, with in-game bonuses, a special Rockstar-hosted live stream, rare gear sweepstakes and more.

                    I liked gta online but it's starting to get boring now...there is nothing new to do and they playlists I get put in usually end up with everyone quiting. I was enjoying watchdogs and completely forgot about gta, now I have completed it I was kind of hoping gta would have had new challenges...but again I'm usually let down by the lack of decent dlc and non existent promises from gta online, shame really...

                      I want to be able to own a vehicle with a siren.Like a police or any other law enforcement type of vehicle.
                      Also GTA 5 could really use some more fun vehicles like the monstertruck for example.

                      I also would like to have more clothing options like gloves and military helmets.And a balaclava would be nice.

                      We had two DLC with high status clothing,now it is time for a more agressive and military style.

                        The one thing that pisses me off the most is the fact that R* is running out of ideas for upcoming DLC Ideas when they don't pay attention to all the amazing ideas the community has to offer, like
                        - The Hood DLC
                        - Army DLC
                        - Underground DLC
                        - The Luxury Update
                        and much more. i don't mind the DLC we currently have but a "I'm not a Hipster" DLC come on R*!!!

                          I wouldn't mid knowing what new music has been added with this update. I recognize a remix of "We Were Set Up" that plays during deathmatches now, but I'm not sure how to search for it.

                              • MajorBallsackson June 13 2014, 7:30pmReplyFlag
                                Rockstar i'm not trying to hate, but when will heist come out because you said they will come out in spring and spring is over in less than a week, i just want a date, so I know which day to check for a update and not look every single day. And do you have to be a certain level to do heist or do you just need a high end apartment?
