The Red Hook Criterium Barcelona No. 3 this Saturday, September 5th

Posted 20 hours, 7 minutes ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar

The Red Hook Criterium Championship Series continues on to Barcelona for the third consecutive year this Saturday, September 5th, as 300 athletes from over 30 different countries will convene at a beautiful water-front circuit in Parc Del Forum to compete in the ongoing race series. With all top ten competitors in both the men’s and women’s fields returning, there’s likely to be an intense battle for the final podium in the third race of the four part series that began in Brooklyn this past April and continued on to London in July.

The women’s series is led by pro cyclist Ainara Elbusto Arteaga (79 points) who has been an absolute force, placing on the podium in the past 4 events. Kacey Lloyd (57 points) – sporting the Rockstar Games racing suit – is in the hunt with two podium finishes over the 2015 series, closely followed by France’s pro rider Fleur Faure (52 points). The women’s field is growing in Barcelona, including representation by Olympic Chilean mountain biker Francisca Campos

The men’s field is tied between two ferocious riders. Red Hook Crit newcomer William Guzman (59 points) raised eyebrows in Brooklyn with a 4th place finish in his RHC premier, then dazzled crowds at London with a dramatic sprint in the final 300m for first place. He shares first place with Brooklyn winner Ivan Ravaioli (59 points), followed by perennial favorite Thibaud Lhenry (50 points). We are excited to see road cyclist David Santos and US Criterium pro Rahsaan Bahati try their luck in their first appearances at the Red Hook Crit.

For friends of Rockstar in Barcelona or nearby, entrance is free to enjoy a full day of cycling and an evening of high-intensity racing. For more information visit redhookcrit.com or check out the official Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Fan Art: GTAIII's 8-Ball Leg Tat, Trevor Cosplay and More

Posted on July 30 2015, 11:57am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

This week, check out some truly impressive classic GTA ink, a range of GTAV cosplay and make-up work, and some sweet artistic throwback tributes to Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram where we feature the latest fan creations on the regular and as always, if you have created something of your own that you feel the community needs to see, you can feel free to share it in comments below.

Quite literally kicking it old school. YouTuber paynexkiller shows he’s a man who appreciates the classics with this stunning tribute to GTAIII’s 8-Ball on his shin. Apparently, this WIP is just the beginning as the final piece will be an epic montage faithful to the original character art including Claude Speed and Misty as well.


Trevor Philips GTA 5 by TheIdeaFix

We’re not sure that Trevor Philips is the type of gentleman anyone should be emulating – however this next pair of cosplayers pull off tributes that might even make the Sandy Shores psychopath himself blush. Above, TheIdeaFix does up one of his buddies as Trevor, looking ready for things to get messy.

Trevor Philips Cosplay by katrinafox

Cosplayer extraordinaire Katrina Fox was directly inspired by the excellent ‘Trevor-Femart’ we shared recently drawn by Grobi-Grafik, saying ‘brb gonna cosplay this asap’. Fast forward about six weeks, and lo and behold Katrina’s rolling up in Anime Expo in LA with T.P.'s signature tats, bruises and bluster on display. She also happened to mention that "Next time I wear this I want the whole squad" so aspiring cosplayers feel free to hit her up to complete the trio.

When you dress like your GTA Online character.” Self-professed ‘Artist, GamerChick, Nerd and GTAV Fanatic’ thatoggchick has taken a break from her Trevor Philips fandom to dress up as her own GTA Online character IRL with this side-by-side doppelganger selfie set.


gta online, monkey mask by MaoMaoz

You're going to want to watch MaoMaoz's making-of video for this one to appreciate exactly what went into her make-up transformation from a totally normal looking young lady into a downright freaky real-life incarnation of the GTA Online monkey mask avatar as popularized by our homeboy Lui Calibre.

 GTA Online-Character by Grobi-Grafik

Grobi-Grafik is really going for it lately, and is back in this roundup with yet another fantastic rendition of a GTA Online community member's character looking straight out of the July page of the Ammu-Nation pin-up calendar rocking the Patriot Beer Hat and an AK-47.


 


Red Dead by juhoham

The humble juhoham captions this one as just a "quick sketch" but the Finnish artist's painting of John Marston has a striking, vintage and almost haunting visual quality to it.

Player-Created GTA Online Jobs: LSIA and Fort Zancudo Are Open for Business

Posted on July 28 2015, 1:07pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

As part of the ILL-GOTTEN GAINS Update Part 2, creators were given the ability to make their own GTA Online Jobs within the heavily guarded confines of Los Santos International Airport and the Fort Zancudo Military Base. Check out below a few impressive Jobs created at LSIA and Fort Zancudo so far, from frantic Deathmatches to an expertly designed karting track. Read the descriptions below and be sure to bookmark them on Social Club for the next time you jump into GTA Online. If you're a keen creator who's made a masterpiece at these locales as well, please drop a link to it in the comments section below for the Social Club community to check out. And also tune in this Friday at 5pm ET at twitch.tv/rockstargames for a special creator's livestream where we'll be playing these Jobs with invited creators and more.

 Zancudo Team Death Match by Drogom (PS3 & PS4)
Drogom, member of the X Assassinos Frios X Crew, put together this cover-heavy Team Deathmatch on the north side of Fort Zancudo. The layout of this match is a fenced in, close quarters playground of mayhem. With your choice of MGs, Advanced Rifles, Assault Shotguns, Heavy Snipers, and a few tactical Grenade Launcher and RPG placements, you won't be short on firepower. This Job provides tons of cover options in the form of walls, burned out vehicles and Sand Block Forts. The elevated areas give you a perfect vantage point to snipe your enemies while the rest of your team goes to work on the ground. You may be tempted to make a run for the two Health and Armor points in the center of the map, but tread carefully – one RPG hit to the Large Gas Tank in the center could blow you sky high, so your best bet is to make sure the Tank is detonated before you venture out.

 Zancudo Zancrudo by srethrennate (Xbox 360 & Xbox One)
"Race around Fort Zancudo! Don't crash into the locals. They tend to shoot people." Sage advice from srethrennate, Leader of the Reborn Yoloboxers Crew - the locals are definitely ornery in this action-packed GTA Race that feels more like an all-out war. As you wind your way through the military base, you'll be attacked from all angles by soldiers and competitors alike. To save your ride and your hide, be sure your vehicle is outfitted with Bulletproof Tires in preparation for this mad-cap dash.

 Tranchées véhiculées by ProfGenki95 (PC)
ProfGenki95 has already created tons of fun Jobs on PC and this Race definitely shows that practice does indeed make perfect. Most of this GTA Race takes place in the tight, narrow, walled-in outskirts of Fort Zancudo, giving players the unique opportunity to wall ride as they make their way through the course (this can be helpful when attempting to dodge the randomly placed Gas Cylinders and Explosive Barrels). There are tons of Boosts and Rockets scattered throughout the route but be mindful of where you're shooting – a blown-up vehicle can quickly cause a pileup in the narrow raceway.

 Bifta Kart Track 2 by blockgod94 (PS3 & PS4)
The leader of the Xylophone Vulture Crew is responsible for this sprint-heavy kart race, set just inside the guard post at Los Santos International Airport. The default setting of 1 lap is all you need as you maneuver your Bifta around the meticulously laid out Large Tire Wall course. With the addition of the Oak and Olive Trees, this is a bonafide throwback to classic amusement parks.

 LSIA GP by Echo0712 (Xbox 360 & Xbox One)
Echo0712 of the BLAZIN PROSPECTS knows a thing or two about creating a Grand Prix - having created 25 of them so far in GTA Online. LSIA GP is not only well designed, but creative to boot, with Fruit Stands filled with Health Packs to mimic race Pit Stops. You can leave the amount of laps at the default setting of 5, or crank it up for the true GP-feel.

 AirPort_Crash by UltraMzag_PL (PC)
A Lieutenant of the POSLKA EKIPA Crew, UltraMzag_PL has created a small car crash scene on the outskirts of the airport. There are plenty of wrecked vehicles and walls to take cover behind, but you’ll want to make a dash for a better weapon than the default Combat Pistol. You can choose to go for the few Assault Rifles around the board, but if you can quickly make your way to the east side of the map you'll find a hidden Minigun waiting to be unleashed. This is only the second Job UltraMzag_PL has created, so we're definitely looking forward to seeing what else he may have in store for the GTA Online community.


If you've spotted or created an epic GTA Online Job in Fort Zancudo or Los Santos International Airport, drop a link in the comments for the community to check out. Also, keep an eye out for more updates being made to the GTA Online Creator, including the frequently-requested official support for the ability to properly stack Props and more.

William Guzman and Ainara Elbusto Arteaga Power Past the Field to Win the Inaugural Red Hook Crit London

Thousands of spectators turned out in beautiful London weather to witness cycling speed and thrills as the Red Hook Crit made its UK debut outside of the O2 Arena on London’s Greenwich Peninsula. Congratulations to William Guzman and Ainara Elbusto Arteaga for taking first in the Men’s and Women’s final respectively. The 1.1km circuit was deceptively challenging, requiring both fine-tuned handling skills to negotiate a series of technical corners and raw strength to power away from the field down the wind-swept straightaways.

In the women’s race, the first lap prime* saw local British rider Jo Smith take command by out sprinting Series Leader and Spanish rider Ainara Elbusto Arteaga to start the evening. A series of attacks on the backstretch kept the pace high and it was an attack through the start-finish by Kacey Manderfield Lloyd that only Arteaga was able to follow. This continued a fierce, competitive rivalry that began in Brooklyn and would continue throughout the inaugural race. Over the course of a few laps, four more riders bridged to Lloyd and Arteaga including Ash Duban, Sammi Runnels, Fleur Faure and Jo Celso. Artega, Runnels, Duban and Lloyd did most of the pulling while Faure and Celso were rarely on the front until the final 6 laps when Faure began her series of attacks that would win her the Rockstar Games Award for Top Antagonist, in recognition of her aggressiveness and determination throughout the race. The race ended with a dramatic surge sprint from Lloyd in the final 100m, forcing Arteaga into a showdown for the finish as she held off Lloyd’s charge by a wheel length to take the race in thrilling fashion.

The sun began to set and the crowds of spectators continued to wrap around the circuit before the men’s feature race. With the top ten riders on the grid posting qualifying times all within one second of each other, we knew the race was going to be a fast one.

Brooklyn No. 7 winner Thibaud Lhenry, gained an early advantage but it was local Londoner Alec Briggs and Italian Nicholas Varani who made the race’s first breakaway. Back in the field, however, series veteran Mario Paz Duque and American Zac Felpel were spurred on by the prime bell and Paz Duque powered through to take the first lap prime, his 4th consecutive first lap prime extending back to Barcelona in 2014. That move would cause alarm in the field and American Addison Zawada took to the front to bring the gap down and neutralize the break.

The split between the front and back halves of the field extended in the second half of the race and ultimately a pack of 31 riders made up the front pack going into the final lap. Top favorites including Ivan Ravaioli, Paz Duque, Lhenry, Augusto Reati, and surprise finishers from Brooklyn No. 8 William Guzman and Raul Torres Pagaza were all in the lead pack and any of these athletes were capable of winning the race.

But it was fastest qualifier Guzman, who had been lying in wait for the previous 23 laps, who displayed a phenomenal finishing sprint in the final 300m to take the victory.

Despite the challenging course, the race boasted the largest finishing field ever, with 70 riders completing the race – more finishers than any other race in RHC history. There is now a tie in the overall Men’s Series standings between William Guzman and Ivan Ravaioli, at 59 points each. Thibaud Lhenry jumped to 3rd place overall edging out Raul Torres Pagaza, who sits 4th. In the Women’s Series, Ainara Elbusto Arteaga continues to lead with 79 points, followed by Kacey Lloyd and Fleur Faure.

The series continues to Barcelona with part three of the four-part championship taking place on September 5th.

The GTA Online ILL-GOTTEN GAINS Update Part 2 Is Now Available

Posted on July 8 2015, 10:09am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

A love of the finer things is one of the few ways a career criminal can celebrate success – something the high-end retailers of Rockford Hills and beyond know all too well. With an outbreak of Heists hitting the city recently, merchants have rushed to stock their shelves and showrooms with exotic collectables to accommodate Los Santos’ new class of heavily armed and upwardly mobile professionals.
 
Part 2 of The Ill-Gotten Gains Update for GTA Online delivers desirable new vehicles, unforgiving new weapons and clothes to make you stand out in a crowd. For the unconventional, the Coil Brawler is a luxury sports-styled off-roader with raised suspension and a 400 horsepower engine that will muscle its way over any terrain. If top speed is what matters most, the Progen T20 is among the fastest cars to ever arrive in Los Santos, and the Vapid Chino brings some old school sedan brawn to your vehicle collection, while the Dinka Vindicator motorcycle adds agility and speed, featuring a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) that stores energy from braking and delivers a burst of speed on activation.


 
For a level of refinement that only dirty money can buy, the Lampadati Toro screams sophistication – a speedboat crafted with the finest timber from protected rainforests, six-inch lacquer finishing and twin v12 engines. Meanwhile, a range of exotic weaponry hits Ammu-Nation with the wood-finished Marksman Pistol, a single-shot weapon with more stopping power than a pump action shotgun or the slightly more personal, solid gold Knuckle Dusters.
 
For those who prefer to wear their status as conspicuous consumers, the iFruit Snap Watch adds a hint of tech savvy to your wrist, or opt for a more classically opulent timepiece with the Medici Radial or Covgari Universe – all available at retailers across Los Santos alongside a massive selection of new apparel and jewelry for men and women.


 
In other news, The Ill-Gotten Gains Update Part 2 brings the release of the new radio station, The Lab on all four console versions of GTAV. Hosted by Dr. No and the Chemical Bro., The Lab features new tracks created by The Alchemist and Oh No and inspired by their work on the original score for GTAV, with guest appearances from Killer Mike, Little Dragon, Earl Sweatshirt, Phantogram, Freddie Gibbs and more.

To help get you into one of their new vehicles, the esteemed salesmen at Legendary Motorsport are offering a one-time 25% REBATE on your next qualifying purchase this week (July 8th – 15th). All you need to do to qualify for this special limited-time offer is have your email address registered and verified with the Rockstar Games Social Club, be a member of the Rockstar Games Mailing List and join a Crew. The cash from the Legendary Motorsport rebate will be deposited in your in-game Maze Bank account by Sunday, July 19th. To fulfill these requirements, login to your Social Club profile. If your profile already meet these three requirements, just visit Legendary Motorsport in-game and purchase your new ride.

And as always, this new Title Update (1.28) additionally includes many other new enhancements, improvements and fixes for known issues. Amongst these items by popular demand will be the ability for creators to make custom Jobs at the Los Santos International Airport and the Fort Zancudo Military Base for the first time. We can’t wait to see what the Creator community cooks up in those previously off-limits areas. We’ve received lots of other fantastic feedback to the official GTA Online feedback inbox from the Creator community about features they’d like to see. One such update that we are currently working on for a next update is a new feature to enable creators to properly stack props, adding proper support for that highly-requested feature powering super fun mega-ramps, loops and parkour courses – please stay tuned for more information on that. Thanks again to the entire Creator community for their amazing, innovative work and very detailed feedback – we encourage all players to please continue sending your wishlists and suggestions to GTAOnline@rockstargames.com as it is of invaluable help in informing positive fixes, tweaks and other updates to the game.
 
Head to Rockstar Downloads for digital versions of the new ILL-GOTTEN GAINS Part 2 artwork seen above now available as desktops, Twitter and Facebook headers, avatars and more. And stay tuned for information about this weekend’s official ILL-GOTTEN GAINS PART 2 Social Club Event Weekend with special bonuses to be announced very soon.

The Red Hook Crit Heads to London for the First Time, This Saturday July 11th

Posted on July 7 2015, 11:09am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar

The Red Hook Crit - the world’s premier track bike crit featuring professional road racers, track specialists, bike messengers, and urban cyclists competing over multiple laps around a fast, technical circuit - makes its London debut this Saturday, July 11th. Hosted at the iconic Greenwich Peninsula, outside the O2 Arena, athletes will race along the waterfront circuit in the second leg of the four part 2015 Championship Series.

Hard-fought battles in the first race at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal back in April shaped the current standings and London will see the return of top competitors from both the Men’s and Women’s fields. 2014 series champion Arinara Elbusto Arteaga defends her first place position against French professional Fleur Faure, past RHC winners Kacey Manderfield Lloyd and Ash Duban. The men’s race in Brooklyn was transformed by a crash in the lead pack during the final laps, allowing Italian Ivan Ravaioli to seize the lead and fend off the chase pack for first place. Young bloods Luis Junquera and Raul Torres will be in pursuit of the pole position, but the field is packed with seasoned RHC powerhouse athletes setting the stage for a world-class event.

The Rockstar Award for Top Antagonist also comes to London, awarded in both final criteriums to the riders whose tactics, tenacity and strength most affect the race regardless of their final standing.

The race is free for spectators and we invite everyone in the London area to check out one of the coolest bike races in the world. For more information, visit redhookcrit.com or check out the official Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. For a glimpse of the action, check out the video below:

Experience the thrill of high-speed track bike criterium racing on the streets of London when the Red Hook Criterium comes to London’s Greenwich Peninsula on Saturday, July 11th. Free for spectators and accessible via the Jubilee Line. Races begin at 19:30.#redhookcrit #rhcl1 #greenwichpeninsula
