The High Life Event Weekend this Fri-Sun May 16-18

Posted on May 15 2014, 10:50am | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Games, Social Club

They say if you've got it - flaunt it. All this weekend Friday May 16th through Sunday May 18th, step out from your luxe Los Santos pad, and take that shiny new Dinka Thrust or Massacro out for a spin to reap special GTA$ and RP bonuses happening all around town as part of the High Life Social Club Event Weekend. In celebration of this week's High Life Update release, stocked with new apartments, high-end vehicles and weaponry and special new game features - we've got a slate of weekend-only opportunities to get bonus RP and increased GTA$ payouts plus chances to score rare gear and GTA$ prizes.

DOUBLE GTA$ PAYOUTS ON HIGH STAKES IMPROMPTU RACES

We've upped the ante especially for those who live in Los Santos' fast lane. Money doesn't grow on trees but it does hang from the helpless saps cruising the LS streets and all weekend, High Stakes Impromptu Races will make plucking it from them all the sweeter. Stakes and payouts to Impromptu Races will be doubled so lining up in your Pegassi Zentorno against a mark carries exhilirating big time risk and reward. You can start an Impromptu Race via the Interaction Menu and remember: you've got to accelerate to accumulate.

BET LIMIT INCREASED FOR ALL JOBS

Put your money where your mouth is. For all high rollers, the Max Bet limit for all Jobs will be raised to GTA$10,000 so you can lay both cash and cajones on the table.

TRIPLE RP IN GOLF AND TENNIS

And because even relaxation should come with an attractive rate of return, all golf and tennis RP bonuses will be tripled all weekend. That means a birdie will see you earn 600 RP while a cheeky hole-in-one on the short Hole 6 will put 3000 RP on your scorecard and turn your opponents greener than the fairway.

EVENT CRATE DROPS

Look for a windfall of valuable commodities dropping from on high with Event Crate Drops falling from the skies in such locations as the Vinewood Sign, the Observatory, Del Perro Pier, La Fuenta Blanca horse stables and the Vinewood Racetrack. The Crates will be stuffed with huge RP bonuses as well as GTA$ stacks, heavy-duty RPGs, miniguns, sticky bombs and more.

#HIGHLIFE SNAPMATIC CONTEST

Snap your flashiest shots showing off exactly how you're living the High Life between now and end of day Sunday and tag them #HIGHLIFE for a chance to win big. We're looking for your most epic, most creative, most amusing or most artfully composed moments over the weekend featuring any of the new apartments, luxury vehicles, toasts/celebrations, haute outfits, or weaponry from The High Life Update. We'll pick five (5) favorites to award GTA$1M as well as the exclusive 'HIGHLIFE' in-game vanity license plate to deck out your shiny new ride.

 
 
EVENT WEEKEND LIVE STREAMS
 
Tune in to a full slate of awesome High Life Weekend live-streams starting with our own official Rockstar Broadcast tomorrow, Friday May 16th from 4-6pm ET with very special guests Rooster Teeth joining us via Skype for two hours of live mayhem, hijinks, and playthroughs of the brand new High Life Update Jobs and gear. We’ve featured the Rooster Teeth gang recently for their incredible GTA Online metagame mayhem like the “Achievement Knievel” bus jump, their rooftop demolition derby Job, and their “Most Dangerous Game” manhunt – and tomorrow, they’ll join live with Rockstar to see what kind of trouble we can get into together wreaking havoc with the new High Life Update content. Something tells us Mental States may get blisteringly red.

We'll be streaming across the Social Club Multiplayer Events page, the Rockstar Games Twitch.tv channel and the Rockstar YouTube channel. Tune in and join us in the Rockstar-hosted chat at Twitch and at Social Club as well.

In addition to the Rockstar Broadcast tomorrow, expect a weekend full of featured High Life guest streams from friends of Rockstar on Twitch and YouTube – Rockstar devs may also be jumping in to join them in their lobbies too, so watch this space for an up to date schedule of streamers, dates and times. The lineup of featured High Life guest streams as of now includes:

    Thanks to everyone who participated in the High Life Event Weekend! By the way, you may have seen the High Life Event Playlist live in-game over the past few days. The Playlist is still available from the Rockstar Playlists section of the pause menus, and contains the four new Races in the High Life Update so you can play through them back-to-back with the same group and find out who is the best player across a multitude of different car classes. With each Race locked to one of the new High Life vehicles, it’s a great opportunity to get to grips with the Dewbauchee Massacro, Enus Huntley S, Dinka Thrust motorbike and of course the Pegassi Zentorno.

    Stay tuned here at the Newswire as we should be announcing the Snapmatic photo contest winners and the sweepstakes gear giveaway winners soon.

    I think its awesome that they added the ability to but a second property and making it able to have a 20 car garage but it would be better if you can have 40 or atleast 30 car garage to be able to have almost every vehicle in the game that would be amazing.

      You know what r* your game just keepers getting worse and worse there where hackers when the game first came out and the still roam freely and you lied twise about hiests you said they would come out in the spring well its like July 29 . I'm a 240 leget and this was my favorite game out of all the ones I have but now I'm so done until you patch all the glitches fix rtr and get rid of the hackers I won't be apart of your game

        @sturideout55 If you see a hacker report them so rockstar and fix it. And the reason heists still get pushed back is because its something big to plan, people would glitch the hell out of it so they would do it for 30s and get paid half a million, and they must stop hackers and glitchers first.

        Hey R*, Just asking if you could make it possible to make a system that can make a whole crew enter matchmaking at once. It's annoying having to reload lobbys to have room for your crew.

          after running from the modders and hackers and losing the cops because one ran me over i would like to see a nice hole in the wall mexican style restaurant i could chill at and eat some food, or maybe a pot den a at least.

              Hey R*, you guys could maybe consider being able to mod your gun to your crew colour as an option! Because everyone's gun's look quite similar, so it would make every players more unique! And the one who aren't in a crew still have the other colour options already given!

                      SO Rooftop Rumble is removed and Trash Talk now has deducted pay. Once I had a good strategy going, meaning no cheats, or no glitches, you jerks decide to change some things around. When i want you to change some things like adding clothes in the last update, you refuse to do it. Good Job R*, Good freaking Job. -__-

                      Its real hard to save money as it is. Having random jerks come after you because they are bored, (and no I cant enjoy a lobby singled out because some missions I can't do) ammo isn't cheap, and ammo is constantly spent if the mission is done incorrectly. What's going on you guys, for real?

                        @KeepinitGorgeous Rooftop Rumble isn´t removed it´s just different tot the old Version of the Mission now you have to shoot mor FIB Agents and the briefcase will spawn by another Agent driving a Car.

                          Players already have most of the combinations of the high life plates. you will be lucky to find a combination not in use by somebody.
