GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals Now Available

Posted on December 15 2015, 10:05am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Executives and Other Criminals brings new ways to make crime pay in GTA Online for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC - offering players the chance to run their own criminal organizations, hire and fire other players, and face off against rival operations across Freemode. Los Santos living also gets a premium upgrade with the introduction of Stilt Houses for sale in the Vinewood Hills, new Eclipse Penthouse Apartments with customizable interior styles and the debut of the upgradable and fully staffed Super Yachts now for sale on Docktease. The update also comes with new armored vehicles, two new weapons and much more.

Be Your Own Boss
Players with more than GTA$1M cash in their Maze bank account can choose to become a VIP with the ability to create and name their own organization, and hire up to 3 other players to serve as Bodyguards. All players will have access to the new SecuroServ menu in the Player Interaction Menu to become a VIP and build their organization. 

Steady Work
Players looking to join an organization as Bodyguards can look out for invites on the new SecuroServ app on the phone and can set their status as ‘looking for work’ via the SecuroServ menu. VIPs can drop ammo and armor for members of the Organization, as well as order new vehicles on-demand including the new Turreted Limo, and call-in favors like Ghost Organization to temporarily remove the entire organization from the radar.

Joining an Organization as a Bodyguard has the advantage of delivering a periodic salary of GTA$5,000, as well as bringing in additional cash and RP for taking on VIP Work and VIP Challenges that occur within Freemode. However, any cash winnings earned by an employed Bodyguard while not working for the Organization (such as completing Freemode Events or other Freemode activities like Bounties or Hold Ups) goes to the VIP. Bodyguards also enjoy additional benefits including accelerated health regeneration, frequent RP bonuses and stat boosts when in the vicinity of the VIP.

New Games and Challenges
VIP Work is the name for 6 new game types that operate directly within Freemode. In Hostile Takeover, an unknown package is held within a restricted area, and organizations compete to collect the package and deliver it to a set location. Sounds deceptively simple, but when the ‘package’ is a tank held inside Fort Zancudo, things get tricky fast. 
Asset Recovery sends your organization to LSPD stations around the city to recover impounded vehicles. It’s up to your outfit to free up those assets and return them to a designated location, while the cops and other players in the session will be looking to destroy your vehicles.
Piracy Prevention is attack and defense on the decks of a luxurious Super Yacht. Defending players spawn on the yacht while attacking players spawn on shore with access to boats, helis and Seasharks ready to head out and capture the upper deck.

Executive Deathmatch puts rival organizations in a Deathmatch-style battle inside of Freemode, with each VIP allotted just 10 lives.

VIP Challenges are intra-organizational Freemode trials that pit members against each other for their own personal gains. There are 6 challenge types including:

Most Wanted: The heat is right around the corner, with all players in the organization hit with a 5-star wanted level.  With a countdown of 10 minutes, the last player alive wins the challenge. 

Market Manipulation: All open convenience stores are blipped on the map. Players have to race from store to store in a hold-up spree to collect as much money as possible. When time counts down, the player with the most money wins.

Auto Buyout: Players must steal and deliver as many vehicles as they can. Every vehicle has a specific value displayed when you enter the vehicle, so choose your acquisitions carefully. The player with the highest total value of vehicles delivered at the end of the timer wins.

Yacht Life
For the ultimate room with a view, players will have the option to purchase a single Super Yacht from the Docktease website. Yachts function as floating apartments and come fully staffed with your own personal captain to shift the boat between your choice of 12 scenic mooring locations around Los Santos and Blaine County, and a bartender to serve drinks for you and your guests. Choose from a range of designs, with higher-end yachts featuring hot tubs, and additional complimentary transport options including helicopters and personal watercraft. Name your vessel and personalize it with a custom flag, hull color and a variety of lighting options. Each Yacht comes equipped with an anti-air defense system to help protect against unwanted attacks from rival Organizations and other Freemode attackers.   

Other New Features

  • 10 Stilt Houses are now for sale around Vinewood Hills, each equipped with a 10-car Garage and a Heist Planning Room
  • 3 Custom Apartments for sale in Eclipse Towers, with 8 customizable themed interiors
  • 10 new cars for sale, including a Turreted Limo and 6 new executive vehicles with armored variations
  • 2 new helicopters – SuperVolito and SuperVolito Carbon
  • 2 new weapons, the Heavy Revolver and Switchblade, each with VIP and Bodyguard variants
  • Players will now have the ability to purchase a fifth Garage or Apartment
  • New clothing and accessories, including Robes, Smoking Jackets, Pyjamas and Swimwear

Executives and Other Criminals also brings the new Adversary Mode – Extraction. Teams of Bodyguards must search, locate and safely extract an Executive Target from their downed jet before a rival Hit Squad intercepts and eliminates the target.

New Custom Avatars on Social Club
You can now take a mugshot or selfie of your character and use it as your Social Club Avatar. In addition to photos of your GTA Online character, this also works with characters from Story Mode, and any mugshots or selfies in your Snapmatic gallery you've taken should already exist as option under Snapmatic Selfies and Mugshots in your Social Club Avatar Settings. Photos created prior to May 2015 may not appear, and photos with meme text will not appear as options. The Art & Downloads section of the GTAV website has also been updated with the latest artwork from Executives and Other Criminals - in a range of desktop wallpaper, background and avatar sizes.

GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals is available now as an automatic update for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

              If Rockstar would make DLC's for the story mode as well I think Online would be more playable, but there are still hackers that cheat which makes the game unfair . I have been trying to get $10 million for a Yacht and only have like $50k and everytime I connect to a session I get kicked out and get the error message Rockstar Servers are not Available right now

                @thehostonwood Really because some people can't afford to buy a new console everytime it comes out. How many people are going to BUY THE PS 4.5 when it comes out in August ? I make $200 a week I can't afford that. Especially when new games are $59.99 and for XBOX ONE they never change. XBOX ONE AND PS4 still have a lot of bugs in the systems that need to be fixed. So I would take a XBOX 360 over the XBOX 720 . because I have put a lot of money in it, and Gamestop and anywhere else I go isn't going to give me a good price enough for me to sell it, $ 50 for and XBOX 360 SLIM with a $90 hard drive is throwing the XBOX in the road and run over by a 18 Wheeler !!! For my British commenters a Lorry !!!1

                    • I haven't left a comment in a while but if rockstar reads this just know a lot of people are tired of online s**t. I hate that i have to waste my life or money just to enjoy online and all of the awesome vehicles and weapons. Online has just lost its luster its full ---s with intention of playing freindly. Put some new add ons for story s**t put a dlc ill buy it just no more online crap i have plus and i just gave up on the online mode. So if you care about your fans rockstar make the origanal game even greater because me and 5 friends are all tired of online mode. Sincerly Dr. Thunda.

                          Yeah, really upset about it not being for old gen. The game was originally made for Xbox 360 and ps 3. I understand they want to push us towards buying newer consoles. But it would've been better if they developed a new game designed for the new ones rather than essentially abandoning the old gen. Honestly, if they came out with a new game altogether I'd be more tempted to buy a new console. I've spent money and time playing this game and now I just feel ripped off.

                            @thehoustonwood Don't play on an 11 year old console and you won't have that issue. It has nothing to do with pushing people towards current-gen. The hardware is dated. Have you ever used an 11 year old computer? They're pretty slow and clunky.

                            @thehoustonwood dude the older systems literally can't handle more updates

                            if they had the space to put this into old gen they would

                            @thehoustonwood just transfer your character from the 360 to the one and you would be fine

                                Please don't make us wear a god damn suit while we're bodyguards. It looks stupid and it was a stupid design choice, so change it
