Coming Soon to GTA Online: BIKERS and More

Posted 6 days, 13 hours ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Bikers, the next big addition to GTA Online, brings the eagerly-anticipated ability to form and lead your very own Motorcycle Club for up to 8 players. Bikers will introduce new roles to play from fresh Prospects to club Presidents with a massive slate of new competitive and co-op gameplay, along with a range of new motorcycles, properties that include MC Clubhouses with a special custom Biker mechanic, and venues for seedy business ventures. 


MC work is dangerous, sometimes requiring a helping hand from your full Chapter.

Beyond a range of opportunities to climb the ranks within a gang and build lucrative businesses as a formidable MC, Bikers also includes a selection of appropriately-themed new modes for bikers of all kinds, along with new weapons, styles, tattoos and features to make this a huge addition to the world of GTA Online.


Seize vertically integrated growth opportunities across a range of sectors with Businesses.

And while loyal MCs will fight to expand their foothold alongside black-collar CEOs and Organizations, there’s always another opportunity to make your mark just around the corner. Keep an eye out for high-level, high-risk vehicle based business ventures to spring up across Los Santos and Blaine County soon.

It’s already been an exciting year for GTA Online. Further Adventures in Finance and Felony brought new, challenging work opportunities and high-rise office spaces for CEOs willing to risk everything to keep climbing the criminal ranks. New Adversary Modes like Power Play and Trading Places added an exciting new dimension to team-based games. Cunning Stunts took stunt racing to a new level with a radical new set of Races and vehicles, alongside Creator tools that allow the infinitely creative community to build and share their own Stunt Races well into the future. 

And ongoing weekly GTA Online bonuses highlight the enormous breadth of available undertakings. Be on the lookout for more of these throughout the fall as well, including continued opportunities for bonus GTA$ and RP in select activities, valuable discounts and new weekly Premium Stunt Races.

GTA Online Jobs On Film: Stunt Races Created by the Social Club Community

Posted 2 weeks, 4 days ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

With the Stunt Race Creator now having been in the hands of the community for just over a month, we've seen a flurry of YouTubers uploading their adventures playing some of these imaginative user-created Stunt Races. Check out this round-up of a few of our favorite custom Stunt Race gameplay videos, and if you fancy playing any of these yourself, just bookmark the link below each of the videos to have them readily available the next time you head into GTA Online.

Miniminter and the Sidemen play through a day one Job by Evil_tuinhek of the well-known Nonchalant Dominance Crew. This Race for up to 20 players weaves together several Crossover props (Tuinhek has used additional props just for aesthetic purposes, a creative touch that brings the Race to life), and there are also excellent opportunities for stragglers to vindictively take out leaders in this one and level the playing field.

A walkthrough from the effusive Gtamen, who picked this map out as his favorite during the first week of the GTA Online Stunt Creator’s availability. As he puts it himself, "It's brilliant. It's f*&$%ing brilliant. I love it. It's so well done." Couldn't have said it better. This track uses the new Split Checkpoints feature to create maximum opportunity for crashes. We also like the use of the Slow Down prop to create a stomach churning mid-air break in the space-time continuum.

While there's no commentary in this one, it's still worth a look for a demo of a super crisp Stunt Race. TinyMarvelous uses props brilliantly to create not only a quarter pipe transfer straight off the opening grid, but also a delicately balanced leap into a hole in one. Kudos as well for using cut out tubes to give racers who overshoot the tunnel opening a chance to re-join the Race.

Colin Strickland Goes 3-for-3 With a Win at Red Hook Crit Barcelona

Posted 3 weeks, 3 days ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar

The penultimate race in the Red Hook Crit 2016 Championship Series took place before roaring crowds at the spectacular waterfront venue, Parc del Forum in Barcelona as Colin Strickland continued his winning ways, taking first place for the third straight event and extending his commanding lead in the series. Meanwhile, Italian newcomer Rachele Barbieri summoned deep reserves for a powerful effort in the back straight to take down local, Ana Usabiaga in the women’s final.

Women’s series leader Ash Duban entered Barcelona seeking to defend her position against 2015 Champion Ainara Elbusto. With the series standings so tight and coveted points awarded for first place in the first lap prime and halfway prime, the opening lap was fiercely contested. Elbusto lead the lap with others close on her wheel until the peloton exited the final hairpin and Barbieri put in an aggressive sprint to overtake Elbusto for the prime.

After Great Britain’s Keira McVitty took the halfway prime, strong winds from the waterfront started to play a role in the race. Elbusto maintained her position on the front as the field continued to attack in attempts to outpace her, including Italy’s Jasmine Dotti, Barbieri and Reati. For these efforts, Elbusto would take home the Rockstar Games Award for Top Antagonist.

However in the final lap, Barbieri pushed through the back straight and into the final hairpin, maintaining her lead across the finish line, with Ana Usabiaga and Dotti following.

With a 9th place finish and 74 points, Duban now maintains a short lead on the series over McVitty (67 points) and Elbusto (64 points), heading into the final race of 2016 in Milan on October 1st.

The first lap of the men’s race opened in similar fashion, with the top 20 all chasing those precious first lap prime points. Augusto Reati outsprinted the pack to take the award and the pace continued in following laps with series leader Colin Strickland and teammate Aldo Ilesic right on the front.

The Aventon Factory Team, Allez-Allez Specialized and Poloandbike squads all displayed teamwork to attack and control the front of the race. Meanwhile, past RHC winner turned pro road racer, Evan Murphy, worked against those tactics with a series of attacks to force the race in his favor, ultimately winning him the Rockstar Award for Top Antagonist.

After Daniel Holloway took the halfway prime, the lead position shuffled a number of times with Strickland, Olivier Leroy and Murphy in close pursuit. With three laps to go, notorious field sprinter Justin Williams forced a separation ahead of Strickland. Strickland would ultimately drop Williams with a 2 second gap heading into the final lap.

With one lap to go, Tristan Uhl made a surprise move to bridge the gap to Strickland, chasing close on his wheel through every turn, managing a neck and neck sprint through to the finish, where Strickland managed to hold on for a slight lead at the line. With the victory, Strickland extended his lead over teammate Ilesic to 27 points (108-81). 2015 men’s series champion Ivan Ravaioli currently occupies third place in the standings (76 points) after his fifth place finish in Barcelona.

Building a criminal empire is no small feat; building a silver screen masterpiece that documents the endeavor ain't easy either. Shout out to every filmmaker from the Social Club community who submitted their creative criminal antics to the #CEO Rockstar Editor contest. After watching every single entry there can be only one winner: a huge congratulations to Social Club member Bill_BENEDICT for his grand jury prize winning entry, “SELLIN' DOPE.” Along with inalienable bragging rights, Bill will be receiving the customized Director's Chair, the super rare GTAV Varsity Jacket complete with Director's patch and the coveted Rockstar Editor trophy.

So kick back on your Office couch, pour yourself an Executive-style liquid lunch, and enjoy these #CEO winner, runner-up and honorable mention entries.
 

WINNER

SELLIN' DOPE by Bill_BENEDICT
The lifestyle of a successful Los Santos CEO is a fast paced cocktail of glamour and danger - details Bill_BENEDICT delivers with gusto in his prize-winning vid featuring luxurious Yachts and choppers, fast cars, beautiful women, tense glimpses of Buy missions with drop point flares burning, and stacks endlessly accumulating in the CEO's Office. However, it is not just the content of this video that made it the judges' favorite, but the fantastic visual style, employing impeccable composition, innovative camera tricks and lighting effects to make exceptional use of the Rockstar Editor tool. Bill also exhibits a keen understanding of how to edit to a soundtrack, matching the style and pacing of his clip to the titular song.

RUNNERS-UP

The two talented runners-up, ChronicBuzz187 and -tdr81, will each receive a $100 Rockstar Warehouse gift card and deluxe prize pack of official GTAV gear and collectibles.


WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND by ChronicBuzz187
A radical departure in style from Bill_BENEDICT's entry, ChronicBuzz187 is more Terrence Malick than Tarantino. Atmospheric lingering vignetted shots (including a masterful sequence depicting a Brickade Sell mission), a nuanced narrative about a CEO with a target on his back, and a hypnotizing soundtrack courtesy of The Hics. Be sure to watch through to the end for a brooding finale that ruminates on the true cost of a life of crime.


HY LIFE by -tdr81
An arresting opening POV shot makes for a clever framing device in -tdr81's whirlwind story of the trials and tribulations of a Southern San Andreas criminal Organization mastermind. While -tdr81’s CEO is out living the good life, his henchmen meet a myriad of missteps in their attempts to move high-priced Contraband. In the end however, the CEO takes extreme measures to make sure the job gets done.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Don’t miss a few fantastic honorable mentions that are definitely worth a watch.

BE A CEO by --EVOLUT7ON--
Watch as --EVOLUT7ON--’s villainess makes her dreams of being the ultimate consigliere a reality, stylishly stealing and hacking her way to fortune and just as fiercely fighting her way to freedom.

GTA - THE CEO by ThePhantomMoose
In order to pull off the successful acquisition and distribution of Contraband, painstaking planning is necessary. ThePhantomMoose takes us for a walk in the shoes of a CEO who knows how to run his empire, and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty in the process.

#CEO CASH KINGS LS IN FINANCE AND FELONY by DmC213
Cash Kings LS Leader DmC213 rounds up his Executive staff for the ultimate takeover of the Los Santos underworld. With all the mischief and mayhem the Crew cause on the city streets, it can be hard to stay under the radar of the LSPD - leading to a climactic standoff.

Tips for Creating Stunning Cunning Stunt Races with the Creator (Part Two: Props, Tracks, Courses & Terrain)

Posted on August 22 2016, 11:02am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

If you haven’t yet, make sure to check out Part One of this Stunt Race Creator tips series with a lot of guidance straight from the Rockstar dev team on planning and designing your stuntastic masterpiece. And read on for Part Two, where we delve into the finer points of getting the most out of your Props, tracks, courses and the Los Santos and Blaine County terrain.

PROPS PRO-TIPS:


Strategically placed Boosts can be helpful at moving the player through difficult terrain, such as shallow water.

There’s no shortage of new Stunt Props to play with in the Stunt Race Creator and with hundreds of options to choose from, you can supply GTA Online racing enthusiasts with an infinite supply of inspired tracks. Here’s some fine points on just a few of the varied Prop options awaiting you:

  • Templates (found in the Props categories) are useful for building set pieces of combined Props that you can duplicate and reuse in your Race. This is useful if you want to repeat a particularly awesome section of your course.
  • When you have a Prop selected, you can still use Fast Zoom to adjust the height of the Prop in quicker fashion. Fast Zoom is the Triangle (PS4), Y (Xbox One) button or L Ctrl and mouse wheel zooming (PC).
  • Stunt Props don’t just have to be used for their most obvious and originally designed purpose. Experiment by rotating them in different ways and try them out for decorations, barriers, even bigger set pieces – whatever you can dream up!
  • Where possible, use larger Props instead of several smaller ones to save on Prop count. For example, the Prop piece ‘Tube Extra Long’ is the longest track available so use it for long straight sections.
  • Smaller Props such as some of the Building Blocks are helpful in making the move between track pieces much easier.
  • Stunt Tubes provide a great way to transition from one section of the course to the next as they’re very malleable. They can be made to spiral upwards, downwards, over terrain and buildings, and even submerge into the ground.
  • Line up your Stunt Tubes carefully and with precision. Uneven placement means you could come across unwanted elevation change or speed-stopping bumps - unless you're into that sort of thing.
  • Circular checkpoints are the perfect size for Stunt Tubes.
  • Building Blocks are handy for filling in unwanted gaps on your course. When put together and rotated/angled, some also make for excellent ramps.
  • Ramps aren't just for jumping – they can provide smooth transitions when driving onto steep, vertical track pieces.
  • Stunt Specials, such as Boost and Slow Down can change the dynamic of a Race dramatically.
  • Boosts can be helpful at moving players through difficult terrain, such as shallow water or steep inclines. Multiple boosts can also drastically change how much velocity a player can get to achieve that perfect jump.
  • Slow Down, on the other hand, set at the top of a steep downward slope can potentially stop racers from driving clean over the top.


TRACKS AND COURSES:


If you really want to stand out and impress with your Stunt Races – the wilder, bolder and bigger the better.

While you’re mapping out your madcap, challenging tracks, it’s worth bearing these strategies in mind:

  • Testing tracks as you go along will help resolve any problems that pop up early on. To quickly test your Race, press the Touch Pad (PS4), View Button (Xbox One) or Tab key (PC) and you’ll be transported onto the track in whichever vehicle you’ve chosen as the default.
  • Roughly laying out the Prop pieces before fine tuning their positioning will help you determine how many Props the track will require.
  • When attempting more than one track type in your Race, use Blends. There are a couple of Tube Blend Props that are of great use, especially when starting off a section of track made from the Tube Props.
  • Use the Track Link Prop in Stunt Tracks when moving between Stunt Track and Stunt Raised Track pieces in order to keep a tidy course.
  • With one of the new features of the Stunt Creator being Secondary Checkpoints, you can now create a second route for players to take in Races. It may be easier to visualize where you want the track to split off when you have a Primary set of checkpoints down from start to finish.
  • Be sure to set the new Stunt Grid layout option on the initial Checkpoint when using a Start Grid track piece.
  • Make sure Checkpoints are placed in a way that will allow players to complete a set piece on a respawn. You can try this yourself in Test mode by manually respawning at a Checkpoint before your set piece.
  • Don’t like your Checkpoint placements? The Delete All option now takes Secondary Checkpoints into account, just in case you want to redesign your Checkpoint layouts again.
  • Remember when putting down Checkpoints that there’s a limit of 68.
  • Building a Race with the intent to perform flips and tricks? Turn on the Award Stunt RP Bonus in Race Details to reward players for landing stunts during your Race. However, consider where and how players will land after big jumps.
  • To give your Races a bit of extra flair during set pieces, place down fireworks, flares, alarms and sounds that can be triggered by players. You have control not only over who can trigger them and when – first place or everybody and every lap or just the last lap – but also how often. The distance at which they're triggered can also be changed.


MAKING THE MOST OF SOUTHERN SAN ANDREAS:


Existing roads provide a great way to link your track when making lap races, as well as reducing your Prop count.

Sometimes, the most surprising Stunts elements will be right before your eyes. When planning and preparing your ideal Race course, let the surrounding environment and landscape of Southern San Andreas lend a hand:

  • Make use of present landmarks and buildings. These can be massively useful in joining your track pieces together, as well as making it feel more memorable and unique.
  • Finding places to combine with your Race Props around the already available map, such as existing roads and bridges, will not only aid you in creating longer Races but also help reduce Prop count.
  • Use the straight lines of road structures to help you measure your straight tracks.
  • For better or for worse, elements such as water can provide a great hazard - take notice! Remember that you can submerge Props, but think of the shifting tides and the effect it might have on the pace and speed of your racers.


All the above just scratches the surface on the vast possibilities available with the Stunt Race Creator. There’s plenty more to discover for those champing at the bit to get started.

We’re anticipating some spectacular player-made Races to come from you imaginative Creator folk and look forward to seeing and playing those that are most inventive and brilliant and sharing them here on the Newswire.

If any keen creators out there have some Stunt Race track making tips of their own to share, definitely share them in comments here for others – or share your personal Stunt Race creations so that other Social Club members can help playtest them with you.

Play 5 New GTA Online: Cunning Stunts Races Today + New Vehicles, Bonuses and More

Posted on July 26 2016, 7:52am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Today, five new Stunt Races join the roster of GTA Online: Cunning Stunts, taking you and your appetite for high-flying, daring, stunting action everywhere from the peaks of Mount Chiliad to the shores of Vespucci. And next week, the official launch of the Stunt Race Creator tool will harness the talents of the amazing Creator community to usher in a whole new era of player-made mayhem. Check out a brief overview of this week's new Stunt Races below, and read on for details on three new vehicles, this week's bonuses and more.

Chiliad (Super)
Mount Chiliad has inspired artists, hippies and death cults for generations, but until now it's offered precious little for the key Los Santos demographic: reckless Super car enthusiasts. All that changes with this towering Stunt Race over the iconic peak of San Andreas.

H200 (Sport)
After a long day in the office hoping the IT guy won't check your search history, there's nothing more invigorating than the touch of the ocean breeze and the smell of salt water as it washes over a race track and floods your engine. Stunt Race for Sports cars. Pro tip: bring your bikini bottoms.

Over the Bridge (Bike)
Sure, 2000cc superbikes weren't designed to spend this much time flying through the air above industrial docklands, but every step of evolutionary progress is tough on the pioneers. Jump-heavy Point to Point Stunt Race.

Vespucci (Super)
The Los Santos coastline is about so much more than golden sand, contaminated water and steroid abuse. It's also a perfect backdrop for laps of a winding Stunt Race where any mistake will send you and your million dollar Super car to the bottom of the sea. Hey, it beats the Ferris wheel.

The Wave (Bike)
Who said you have to venture out into the middle of the Pacific in a force ten gale to feel so seasick you want to die? That special inside-out feeling is available right here on this coastal Stunt Race for Bikes.

NEW VEHICLES: BRAVADO SPRUNK BUFFALO, MTL DUNE & VAPID CONTENDER
Three new vehicles, the Bravado Sprunk Buffalo, MTL Dune and Vapid Contender, have also been added to GTA Online today. Tackle Stunt Races with Sprunk guzzling pride in the branded livery-clad Buffalo, or dial up your friends at Pegasus to motor through the Blaine County off-road in the MTL Dune. The Contender offers formidable size and balanced suspension to tackle a variety of terrains - an asset for active Executives and VIPs.

New Stunt Races and Vehicles Added to GTA Online: Cunning Stunts

Posted on July 19 2016, 5:43am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games


Try out the new Ocelot Lynx in Zebra, one of six brand-new Stunt Races added today to GTA Online: Cunning Stunts.

The release of Cunning Stunts last week turned GTA Online racing upside-down, and now this week it expands to include six new adrenaline-pumping Races and 3 more stunt-ready vehicles. 

SIX NEW RACES
The Super, Muscle, Sports, Bikes and Off-Road classes can compete, plummet and get airborne through rings of fire in a new collection of Races taking place throughout Los Santos and Blaine County:

Afterburner (Bikes)
There was a time when jumping through a wreath of flame on a poorly engineered chopper was enough to give even the most jaded patriot a semi. Those simple days are gone, but apply the same formula a thousand feet above an urban area in the middle of the night and you stand a decent chance of a sudden rush of blood to the crotch. Spectacular Stunt Race for Bikes.


Go up, over, around and through in Double Loop.

Double Loop (Super)
You can never have too much of a good thing, especially when that thing is a gravity-defying loop-the-loop over Fort Zancudo. Kiss your already fragile grip on the laws of physics goodbye on this intense Stunt Race for Super cars.

Forest (Bikes)
The great woodlands of San Andreas are one of our most bountiful resources, providing an endless supply of endangered timber, plenty of discreet hideaways for doomsday cults, and now some of the most suicidal dirt bike jumps in the country. Stunt Race for Bikes.


See what the view from the top really looks like with the new Western Cliffhanger.

High Flier (Bikes)
Time to ditch the private jet, saddle up, and learn a thing or two about corporate dominance with this Stunt Race for bikes through, around and over almost every skyscraper in central LS.

Trench II (Muscle)
Are you susceptible to paranoia? Feel like the walls are closing in? Often have the sense you're trapped with no escape? Come play this Stunt Race for Muscle cars and give your neuroses something to really latch onto.

Zebra (Sports)
A few massive slingshots and vertical drops around Mount Chiliad will play havoc with a full stomach. Time to skip lunch... and breakfast... and to pack a change of underwear. Point to Point Stunt Race for the Sports class.


The Declasse Drift Tampa, one of the three vehicles added to GTA Online today.

THREE NEW VEHICLES
The livery-clad racing fleet also expands today with the addition of the Ocelot Lynx, Declasse Drift Tampa and Western Cliffhanger, growing the Sports and Motorcycle classes. And for high-stakes racing aficionados, a new Premium Race popping up over the weekend will put your best Sports cars to the test in Zebra (look for the yellow blip at Legion Square).


The new Ocelot Lynx, available from Legendary Motorsport.

BONUS DISCOUNTS: THROUGH JULY 25TH
Expand your collection of stunting attire with the Silver Jumpsuit which comes complete with matching helmet. This unlock is free this week and will appear in the Special Items in your Wardrobe as soon as you log-in. Make sure you log-in before July 25th to redeem!

The 20% discount on all Garages & Properties with Garages continues this week – just what you need to accommodate the 3 new vehicles releasing with this update. If you’re already fully maxed out on room in your garages, don’t forget you can always use your second character (and the shared bank account) to open up to 5 more garages, and 50 more parking spaces.

Where last week’s bonuses were all about performance upgrades, this week it’s all about aesthetics with 20% off Spoilers, Wheels, Tire Smoke, Skirts, Exhausts and Horns. Perfect for making sure your brand new Ocelot Lynx or Declasse Drift Tampa is a show-er and not just a go-er.
