Views From The Los by slimsy1901

Standing tall, above the world and surveying your domain is where any self-respecting, industrious entrepreneur should be. Taking in a rich sunset landscape as the new luxury Volatus flies alongside, slimsy1901's view from the top sure looks nice.


Don't Miss a Chance!! by Nightrain-G-

Like a scene straight out of a Vinewood blockbuster, Nightrain-G-'s action shot neatly showcases cinematic explosions, highway mayhem and some of the new heavyweight vehicles - there's the Cargobob seizing an opportunity, a MTL Brickade riding passenger and a Savage in hot pursuit.


She Knows What She Wants by maks55amg

They say money talks and it doesn't speak clearer than in this cleverly framed scene from maks55amg. Hard-earned, cold cash makes for soft carpeting, as a pair of killer heels take their steps along the corporate criminal ladder.

The Chrome Style Crew pose for a group photo between serious company talks in the boardroom of a swanky Executive Suite. With weapons and Special Cargo decorating the Table Map and the sharp matching suits and shades, there's no denying this Crew means business.


The Office View by Venom81ED

For those hankering after a taste of the good life, Venom81ED's shot of 'The Office View' presents all that an Executive Suite (and lifestyle) has to offer. From the Boardroom Table Map to neat stacks of Special Cargo ready to be shifted and the glorious skyscraper views afforded to those with the time to stop and admire them... 

Other Honorable Mentions...

  • Partnership by maks55amg - For smooth and successful business to be done, smart CEOs know to keep their friends close and their business associates even closer...
  • Escape the Maze by up-daz - Going for a spin in the new Enus Windsor Drop takes an explosive and dramatic turn, as up-daz breaks free of the Maze Bank in a fiery blaze of glory.

  • Trading Places by DeAliveBeast - DeAliveBeast captures the thrilling moment status is changed and power reversed between Losers and Winners in the Trading Places Adversary Mode.
  • CEO Silhouette by MiroAWhite - Muted shades and colors make MiroAWhite's honorable mention all the more striking, as a CEO surveys the territory available to a diligent mogul beyond the glass window.

Square off at Los Santos International Airport, the Port of Los Santos, or take on some turbocharged chaos on the banks of the Alamo Sea.

In honor of these latest additions from Further Adventures in Finance and Felony, we've also got a week's worth of bonuses, starting today with a Double GTA$ & RP Playlist featuring the three newest Power Play locales that runs through July 8th. Then just in time for the weekend, mix it up with a new Double GTA$ & RP Playlist that includes a pair of Power Play maps (Aircraft Carrier and Bolingbroke Prison) along with a Trading Places skirmish at Redwood Lights Track for good measure.

GTA Online Power Play: Playback by the GTA Online Community

Posted on June 23 2016, 10:54am | Author: R*E | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Whether you're Beasted, Zoned or Doped, the frenetic nature of Power Play has already produced some incredible moments since its addition to GTA Online this week. Captured on camera by members of the GTA Online community, we've picked out some of the most replay-worthy thrills, kills and spills for you below:



Müz and the REBL Crew unleash the Beast in cinematic style with a slick montage of intense Power Play action. Dom's "Living in America," which can be heard on Radio Mirror Park, is the perfect accompaniment to a bit of the ultraviolence by Müz and company.

Our friend, Brooklyn's own GTAFIVEONLINE, racks up a bloody kill against gtadoll for The Toxic Pests during some well-earned yard time at Bolingbroke Penitentiary.

Sometimes, you just know when your time is up; instead of burying his head in the sand, ic2archery gracefully accepts the inevitable as a Beasted Killer Bug moves in for the kill.



Learning to use the new power-ups effectively is key to victory - a notion expertly demonstrated by FxChannel Gaming, as he makes the most of his Zoned and Beasted moments.

makimaki_3333 proudly displays The Boars' team colors during an extreme battle against The Cocks.

They say that all good things must come to an end; KCs Notorious learned this the hard way, when his Beasted power-up ran out mid-jump, setting him up for a bite of humble pie with a side of concrete.

The Beast's super jump and blistering speed abilities can be a deadly combo, especially in the right hands. The guys at long-running fan channel GTA Series Videos show us how it's done, by athletically outmaneuvering a Minigun before going in for the kill.

Watch plenty of adrenaline-pumping rounds of Power Play during our official Rockstar live stream, this Friday at 5pm ET on the official Rockstar YouTube and Twitch channels. As always, if you've got any awesome gameplay GIFs or Rockstar Editor clips you'd like to send us, be sure to hit us up via Mouthoff, or share them in the comments below.

GTA Online: Power Play and Grotti X80 Proto Now Available

Posted on June 21 2016, 1:21pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

In Power Play, today's new update to Grand Theft Auto Online on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, power-ups change the rules of urban warfare - giving players the chance to boost themselves and their allies with special abilities, or even screw with their opponents in pursuit of ultimate victory.
 
The effects of these six power-ups are temporary and will need to be timed wisely. Power-ups include:

Beasted: Transform into the Beast and use special powers like invisibility, super jump, and super strength. 
Zoned: Slow down time for all players, giving snipers a tactical advantage over exposed enemies. 
Doped: Dull your enemy's senses with a trippy green haze; they’ll never see that flank coming...
Raging: Unleash a rampage with your entire team by inflicting increased damage while taking reduced damage. 
Flipped: Scramble your opponents by picking up Flipped, temporarily inverting all enemy camera controls and mixing team chat to truly get in their heads.
Dark: Take your team off the grid for well-timed sneak attacks.

Each player can use one power up at a time, but layers of strategy exist through stacking power-ups with other teammates, or triggering power-ups to counteract enemy team advantages. Play this new Adversary Mode now via the Jobs menu, or grab your best gunmen and battlefield tacticians to maximize 2X GTA$ and RP in the Power Play Playlist all week long.

You can also bookmark the three Power Play Jobs here:
Power Play I (Aircraft Carrier) | Power Play II (Vespucci Beach) | Power Play III (Bolingbroke Prison)
 
NEW SUPERCAR: THE GROTTI X80 PROTO
 
Today's update also features the addition of the blazing-fast Grotti X80 Proto to the Supercar roster at Legendary Motorsport. The space-age, low-profile body harnesses a beastly engine, making for a finely tuned machine ready for dominance – especially handy when needing to make Special Cargo Deliveries in a hurry. Escaping wanted levels has never looked so good.

 

DOUBLE GTA$ AND RP POWER PLAY PLAYLIST, UNLOCKABLE GROTTI TEE AND MORE

Celebrate Power Play Week and grab double GTA$ and RP in the all-new Power Play Playlist, available to access directly from the GTAV loading screen (and the Playlists section of the GTA Online pause menu) through June 27. And whether you’re a proud new X80 owner or an envious onlooker licking your chops, the new Grotti in-game tee is unlocked for all players this week, simply by logging into GTA Online.

Also, enjoy steep discounts on an assortment of air and sea vehicles; seafaring adventurers can get half off the luxurious Lampadati Toro, while ambitious Executives (and Other Criminals) can secure air superiority to support all their operational needs, with half off all three variations of the Swift and the Buckingham Valkyrie, which is available to purchase this week without Heists prerequisites. Finally, protect your Special Cargo from airborne assailants with 33% off the Homing Launcher.

The #CEO Rockstar Editor Contest

Posted on June 16 2016, 1:21pm | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

It's time to get the public relations arm of your GTA Online Organization spinning with a piece of cinematic propaganda to play at the AGM and distribute to shareholders and partners. And while cheery stock footage of families waving and co-workers shaking hands may be the traditional approach for such corporate videos, we're looking for a more accurate representation of the types of aggressive venture capitalism your enterprise specializes in. We’ve got some slick prizes fit for any underworld boss to feature in his or her Executive penthouse, so gather your trusted staff and show us what your Organization is made of.

THE CREATIVE BRIEF

Now that both GTA Online: Further Adventures in Finance and Felony and Executives and Other Criminals have launched, we're looking for short films made purely with the Rockstar Editor showcasing your Organization's criminal endeavors. Be it a specific story or action sequence showing how your Organization exercises a hostile takeover, or a ‘push it to the limit’ style music video montage detailing how you dominate in ruthless and risky business - get creative! Remember that you must feature content from GTA Online: Further Adventures in Finance and Felony and/or Executives and Other Criminals in addition to meeting the other requirements detailed below.

THE PRIZES

The grand prize winning director will receive three exclusive prizes each customized with their Social Club ID. For the first time ever, we are giving away the Rockstar Editor trophy bearing the Rockstar Editor logo, to sit proudly on the mantel of our winner alongside future BAFTAs, Oscars and Palme d'Ors. As if that wasn't enough, the winning director will also be calling the shots for their next epic from the comfort of a customized director's chair, bearing the winner's Social Club ID and the Rockstar Editor logo. Finally, the ultra-rare and exclusive GTAV Varsity Jacket will be yours to wear on set or on location. It also will be customized with your Social Club ID on a special custom patch confirming your status as an award-winning Rockstar Editor auteur.

Two runners-up will each receive a $100 Rockstar Warehouse gift card and a deluxe prize pack of official GTAV gear, as well as being featured here at the Rockstar Newswire.

HOW TO ENTER

Entering the competition is easy. Simply create a video in the Rockstar Editor on PC, PS4 or Xbox One and publish it to Rockstar Games Social Club via the in-game menu. Make sure to tag your video with the word "#CEO" to enter it into the contest. You can either do this in-game or via the My Videos page on Social Club. A few important points:

  • Your video must feature content from GTA Online: Further Adventures in Finance and Felony and/or Executives and Other Criminals.
  • Your video must be between 2 and 5 minutes in length.
  • Your video must be published to Rockstar Games Social Club and tagged with the word '#CEO' between now and 11.59pm ET on July 18th, 2016 to be eligible.
  • Your video must be made entirely using the Rockstar Editor. We know that many advanced Rockstar Editor video creators like to use additional third party editing software, but in order to keep this competition fair for all entrants, we require that you only use the Rockstar Editor in producing the video.

After viewing all qualifying entries, Rockstar Games will pick the winner by taking into consideration adherence to or interpretation of the Creative Brief mentioned above, entertainment and artistic value, editing quality and overall creativity. Stay tuned for the winners announcement later this summer.

Void in certain countries and where prohibited. See www.rockstargames.com/socialclub/events/contests for official rules and eligibility details.

GTA Online Capture Week (May 20 - 26): Double GTA$ & RP Capture Bonuses, Unlockable 'Meltdown' In-Game Tee, Discounts and More

GTA Online Player-Created Jobs: Prison Riot

Posted on May 25 2016, 10:43am | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Try your hand at these fun GTA Online Jobs, crafted by members of the amazing Creator community - featuring a collection of Captures (which will earn you Double RP through May 26th as part of the ongoing Capture Week), plus a Last Team Standing, a Race and a Team Deathmatch that all take place in and around Bolingbroke Penitentiary. Read on below for details on each of these brutal prison yard confrontations, including links to bookmark them for easy access during your next GTA Online play session.

  Penitentiary Panic by madminer95 (PC)
"The prisoners are protesting on the roof of Bolingbroke Penitentiary but its quickly turning into a riot. Take this opportunity to compete with the enemy team to steal the prisoners' stashes of drugs in the ensuing chaos."

This Capture, sent to us by the Leader of the Facepalm Community Crew, will have you and your Teammates gunning down not only the opposing Team on your hunt for two Duffel Bags, but also Bolingbroke’s very own residents - the ornery Prisoners. With forced Assault Shotguns, you must make your way up to the roof, where the prisoners' stashes of drugs wait to be brought back to your Capture Point. Since the bags respawn when a drop-off is made, we recommended keeping several members of your Team camped out up top to snatch the newly spawned Duffel before the opposing Team can.

  High Profile Transport by Caetano414 (Xbox 360 & Xbox One)
"A high profile inmate is to be transported to Bolingbroke Penitentiary. Police have increased security to guarantee his arrival."

Caetano414 from the L S Police Dept Crew set this Capture up as an inmate convoy in jeopardy of being compromised. One Team plays the part of the couriers, driving or shepherding the Police Prison Bus containing the precious cargo. The other Team starts a little further away, and must intercept the transport before it makes it to the Penitentiary's yard. If you are on the transport Team, have one of your guys hop into the Bus while the rest pack into the adjacent Police Riot armored vehicle. The Police Riot will provide your Team with a safe vantage point to protect the transport.

 Prison Yard LTS by l-BuGs-l (PC)

This LTS has a rich array of cover options and ammo, necessitating strategic movement as you take out the enemy Team without putting your own single life in jeopardy. You’re going to want to play the long game in this match, as rushing the opposing team is sure to get you taken out in the yard. There are plenty of pick-up options in the form of Sawed-off Shotguns and AP Pistols, but a properly lobbed Grenade may be just what you need to circumnavigate the abundance of cover in this map.

  Prison Break by FIB-Agent_0 (PS3 & PS4)

FIB-Agent_0 has created a perfectly chaotic prison break in the form of this Capture in (and out) of Bolingbroke Penitentiary. Using Combat MGs, fight your way past Prisoners, Prison Guards, and the opposing Team to make your great escape. Only one of your Team needs to grab the Police Prison Bus and deliver it to your Capture Point, so have the rest of your Team grab up the RPGs and Miniguns to take out aerial and ground enemies, and provide cover fire for your fellow escapees.

  Central Unit by alex777now (PS3 & PS4)
"Breaking out of prison, two rival gangs get in each other's way."

This well-crafted TDM pits two rival prison gangs against each other in an epic battle for domination of the jail yard. With choices ranging from Advanced Rifles to Molotovs, make your way to the high ground for the best possible advantage for raining down mayhem on your enemies. In the video below, Stronktank of the Content Creators PS4 Crew shows how to own this atmospheric Deathmatch, with a ridiculous 10 kill streak straight out the gate, and an impressive 3.25 KDR.

  Prison Trench Run by EvolDave (Xbox 360 & Xbox One)

Now that you’ve escaped the pen – it’s time for a victory lap in EvolDave’s off-road Land Race. With tumultuous turns and some deep trenches to navigate, the Creator warns “DO NOT USE A SANCHEZ OR BLAZER!!!”, as these will surely have you eating dirt. Another pro-tip from EvolDave – “Careful jumping across the trench, and duck when you go under the satellite dish.
