Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America's unforgiving heartland. Watch the brand new trailer here.
Coming Fall 2017.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will release worldwide in Fall 2017 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems.
An epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland, the game's vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.
Last week's launch of Bikers featured loads of new gameplay including Clubhouse Contracts, new Business opportunities and more - alongside 13 new vehicles and a host of other additions - in one of the biggest GTA Online updates to date. Today, two new vehicles have been added to the roster of available rides. Plus, Dynasty 8 has answered the prayers of many players with the ability to purchase a sixth property.
TWO NEW VEHICLES: WESTERN DAEMON CUSTOM AND BF RAPTOR
Hitting the streets of Los Santos this week are the Daemon Custom and the Raptor. The new Daemon is the perfect way to let every passerby know you belong to a long and distinguished tradition of gangland chic. But if you crave that mixture of awe, confusion and arousal that only a turbo-charged three-wheeler can inspire, the Raptor is the ride for you.
SIXTH PROPERTY NOW AVAILABLE
Already filled every square inch of garage space with cars too beautiful to sell? Stuffed your Clubhouse with as many perfectly modded rides as it’ll hold? Or are you just sick of having only one luxury apartment for every day of the working week? Your pain is real, but so is the cure: you can now purchase a sixth property.
BIKERS BONUSES: OCTOBER 11TH - 24TH
Starting today, and running for a full two weeks through October 24th, take advantage of a new set of GTA Online discounts and unlockable rewards. You'll receive a black Western Logo Hoodie just by logging into GTA Online at any point over the next two weeks. There's also Double GTA$ & RP in the new Slipstream Adversary Mode, along with a special Double GTA$ & RP Playlist featuring a selection of Stunt Races (to join, just hit the prompt on the GTAV launch screen or select the Stunt Race Playlist from the Rockstar Playlists in the pause menu).
If you need extra back-up for your newly formed Motorcycle Club or you’re looking for a break from police attention, both Lester and Merryweather have cut their prices in half across their entire catalog of Services. Those looking to make over their vehicles can head on over to Los Santos Customs where you'll receive 25% off Resprays, Tire Smoke, Rims and Turbos. And Ammu-Nation is trimming 25% off all Bullet Ammo, Tints, Body Armor, Throwables and Drum & Box Magazines.
PREMIUM RACES: FOREST (OCT. 11TH - 17TH) & DOUBLE LOOP (OCT. 18TH - 24TH)
During the bonus period there's two Premium Races on offer. Now through October 17th, zip through the trees at top speed in "Forest" (locked to Bikes). Don’t worry about opponents forcing you into the nearest tree trunk as the Race is also locked to Non-Contact. Then from October 18th through 24th, it's the gravity-defying "Double Loop", locked to the Super class. All Premium Race participants earn Triple RP and have a shot at taking down GTA$ prizes for finishing 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
EARN BONUS CASH NOW THRU OCTOBER 17TH
Now through Monday, October 17th get what you want even faster with GTA$ cash-back bonuses on any Bull, Great White, Whale or Megalodon Shark Card. The bigger the card value, the heftier the GTA$ bonus you'll get:
All the bonus GTA$ you earn during that period will be automatically deposited as one lump sum in your in-game Maze Bank Checking account by Friday, October 21st. You can purchase Shark Cards in-game or via your favorite online or local retailer. Spend wisely, cash therapy is fleeting. More details.
GTA Online: Bikers Now Available
The streets of Los Santos are swarming with some of the baddest Motorcycle Clubs and independent riders you’ve ever seen and as proof, we’ve gathered some of the best videos, GIFs and Snapmatics from members of the GTA Online community.
Zadrium and other members of the prolific REBL Crew got right to test driving some of the vehicles, weapons and businesses from the new update. Similar to his work on the Western-themed Ricochet that we featured in August, Zadrium perfectly captures the tone and feel of what it means to be an outlaw.
Only able to sit idle around their Clubhouse for so long, members of Western Brothers MC take their bikes for a twilight ride. Watch for a solid melee attack at the end, causing a rival member of The Lost to eat dirt.
There's no better way to spend your day off than racing through traffic on two wheels. DeejayJeanP of Logic Films suits up and puts the new Shitzu Hakuchou Drag bike through its paces across the sunny streets of Los Santos.
May the best man live. Snapmatic veteran AlexSniperBullet and estrangedhd demonstrate one way to settle beef on the muddied up trails of Southern San Andreas.
Poppin' fools and wheelies simultaneously, FreddyLosSANTOS shows off the new Nagasaki Chimera and Sweeper Shotgun.
After hosting the Mac Miller livestream last month, Kevin LaSean (aka XpertThief) stuck around Rockstar HQ long enough to get a sneak peek at GTA Online: Bikers. Watch as he and realrosesarered get a taste of that biker life.
They've got legs. It didn’t take long for the gang at GTASeriesVideos to put this little dance number together, demonstrating kicks worthy of any Rockette.
She's got the looks that kill. Don’t be fooled by the fishnets and mascara, Snapographer Sariska will make roadkill out of you.
ImPapaWolf has seen some things. This is one grandpa you don’t want to cross.
Keep in your lane. rgamer official isn’t the most welcoming biker in Los Santos and proves as much by holding ground with a melee kick.
CaPn_bOnEs takes a break from cracking skulls to bask in the glow.

GTA Online: Bikers opens up an entirely new part of the criminal underbelly of GTA Online, bringing proper Motorcycle Clubs to the roadways and ever-evolving illicit markets of Blaine County and Los Santos.
Life in an MC is more than just a fleet of shiny new rides and impressive leather cuts. Bikers brings a range of new ways for clubs of up to eight players to earn their keep, battling rival MC’s and other criminal factions. Enterprising players can form and be the President of their own MC, while anyone seeking MC life can join as a Prospect. As newcomers prove their worth, Presidents can promote Prospects to meaningful roles within the club’s structure including Vice President, Road Captain, Sergeant-at-Arms, and Enforcer. Each MC role comes with its own unique abilities to help themselves and the larger MC, from dropping Body Armor and calling in Hit Squads to setting MC riding formations and starting MC Challenges.
Your MC’s Clubhouse is the base of operations. Choose from 12 available locations across the salty shores of Paleto Bay to the streets of Rancho, and make your purchase via the new Maze Bank Foreclosures website. Each Clubhouse comes complete with its own bar, activities like Darts and Arm Wrestling, various murals and the option to upgrade to your own in-house Custom Bike Shop.
Each Clubhouse includes a meeting room; Presidents can use the Contracts Wall to launch new Clubhouse Contracts - a range of new Freemode missions for you and your MC members to earn some tidy GTA$ and RP through a range of noble deeds – from the forceful liberation of your falsely incarcerated allies to good old-fashioned gunrunning. Gangs will also work against other factions in Los Santos, including opportunistic rivals seeking to exploit your MC’s honest work for their own gains.
The open road isn’t just a stretch of Chumash pavement anymore; log in to the nefarious Open Road online network to launch a new (non San Andreas Board of Commerce sanctioned) business. Choose how your MC is going to earn its money, as Open Road clients offer opportunities in document forgery and cash counterfeiting as well as large scale narcotics distribution. Small business owners will setup their operation with supplies before beginning production. Once your business is off the ground, build them further with risky resupply runs, and stay on the lookout for other factions who might take an interest in any unsecured operations. When you’re ready, trade your goods for a profit and use your gains to reinvest in your businesses with available security, staffing and equipment upgrades.
THIRTEEN NEW VEHICLES
Thirteen new impressive rides from sport bikes to choppers are ready to hit the road, giving you a full suite of wheels to fill the Clubhouse Garage of your petrol-fueled dreams. From the sleek, neon-accented Nightblade and the charismatic, three-wheeled Chimera, to the classic, rusted lines of the Rat Bike, there are options for every kind of rider available at Southern San Andreas Super Autos and Legendary Motorsports. The bike you choose to ride the most will become your favorite bike, which will provide boosts to health regeneration (including total health regeneration) and damage.
NEW WEAPONS & MELEE
With Bikers comes the ability to melee opponents from the seat of your bike and Ammu-Nation is stocking the new Battle Axe, Pool Cue and Pipe Wrench to help take down rivals quickly. Also available to knock opponents out of their seats with blistering power are the new automatic Sweeper Shotgun and Compact Grenade Launcher.
NEW CLOTHES & TATTOOS
Whatever kind of MC you roll with, there’s an extensive wardrobe of new styles to represent your affiliation including a wide selection of Jackets, Cuts, Helmets, and of course plenty of leathers and denim to choose from. Complement and trim your Bikers look with a selection of new Hairstyles and Tattoos.
And for MC members, Presidents can set their gang’s style and pick from a variety of Emblems (or their very own Crew Emblem), then each member of the gang can choose their own outfit. The Emblem creator has also been updated to make Emblem creation easier.
NEW ADVERSARY MODE: SLIPSTREAM
Stick together to hit checkpoints at the same time as teams of riders vie to be first over the finish line in Slipstream, the new Adversary Mode available today as part of GTA Online: Bikers. As teams jockey for lead position, taking full and clever advantage of the other players' slipstreams for speed boosts – and using well timed attacks to melee opponents off their bikes – can be vital in this contest to the bitter end. Seven maps are ready to race now.
BIKERS BONUS WEEK
Kicking off today and through to Monday, October 10th is a Bonus Week lined with unlockable rewards and discounts. Play GTA Online this week and unlock the crisp, white Western Logo Tee and Nagasaki Hoodie, free at any clothing store. And for collectors, get the black Western Logo Tee when you pick up the new Western Nightblade. Keep your MC armed and loaded with discounts on Body Armor and Ammo – and pack an extra punch with 25% off high-capacity Drum and Box Magazines. Or add to your MC’s flair with discounts on Weapon Tints.
PREMIUM RACE: TRENCH I
Suitably set to Motorcycles, this week's Premium Race is "Trench I" - over two helter-skelter miles of tight competition through a ten-story tunnel in the Grand Senora Desert. With GTA$ payouts for the top three finishers and Triple RP for all racers, enter the fray at the yellow Premium Race Blip in Legion Square or join via the Quick Job App.
Shutterbugs with a penchant for a beautiful motorcycle or an eye for MC road formations, get ready to put your best shots forward in our #BIKERS Snapmatic photo challenge. We're on the search for five winning Snapmatics that showcase all the hottest features of GTA Online: Bikers, from the latest vehicles to Clubhouses going about their daily business.

Entry is open until end of day next Monday, October 10th and entries must be tagged with #BIKERS on Social Club. Official rules can be found here.
Today’s update also brings many optimizations, enhancements and fixes to GTA Online including items by popular demand including giving hosts the option to set “Non-Contact” for Stunt Races and the ability to use destroyed or impounded Personal Vehicles in Races.

TOP STUNTING CREWS
Since the release of Cunning Stunts and the subsequent Stunt Race Creator, Crews far and wide have been competing for the bragging rights that come with being the most dominant Crew around. Speaking of dominance, Broughy1322's Nonchalant Dominance PC Crew has racked up a stunning 45,451 wins in Stunt Races containing 5 or more competitors. Close behind in 2nd place is NoDo's PS4 Crew with an impressive 39,664 Stunt Race wins, while Content Creators PS4 also joins them on the podium with almost 20,000 wins. Props also go to TROP2CREW, NiMu-11Crew, NoDo XB1, BOSSFTW ORGANIZATION, DSKHRACERS, DANIELOREP and BOSSFTW CORP, all of whom have smashed through the 10,000 Stunt Race wins barrier.
While it's clear who leads the way in terms of Stunt Race wins, Psycho Patriots lays claim to the highest win percentage overall, victorious in just a shade more than half the Races they compete in and almost double the win percentage of the average GTA Online racer. Just shy of that win rate is the formidable Advanced Crime Group with a solid 48% win rate, followed by UMAD Motorsports in the 3rd spot with 42%.
THE LUCKERS CREW - FINANCING FELONIES
Schwiizer101 and The Luckers Crew have gotten fully organized, putting together a Finance and Felonies-inspired video and some choice Snapmatics to let the streets of Los Santos know their daily operation is open for business.
The Luckers have really gotten into the swing of things, using their corporate HQ as a solid base of operations for stocking their warehouses.
Crews also continue to coordinate and gather for other fun events and audacious outings in GTA Online. Here are just a few we've spotted as of late bringing the heat, several of whom are linked by the "low" life.
MagnarHD and the REBL Crew wasted no time in hitting as many Cunning Stunts as possible with the update's release this summer.
No strangers to testing out the goods when new content comes out, our friends at REBL Crew got right to it with the release of Cunning Stunts. Leader MagnarHD was sure to get the fun the gang was having on video, loops, jumps, soccer balls and all - and at lots of great angles to boot.
The Lowly Gentleman celebrate two years of getting down and classy.
The ever versatile TheLowlyGentlemen, well-recognized here at the Newswire for everything from Snapmatics to all-star car meets, recently celebrated two years as a close-knit and prolific vehicle-based Crew. Member LS_Drifts commemorated this milestone by capturing an anniversary meetup, shot over three different sessions with ninety Gentlemen and a wealth of cars represented. Also worth mentioning is this beautiful vid from Ferino Design, whose slick and stylish video presentations you may remember going as far back as before the release of GTAV. This time, Ferino documents his time spent with TLG (which he refers to as the "#1 Stance and Crew Meet group on GTA Online") back in the summer of 2015. Coining this presentation as his "strike back" after a long hiatus, it covers the events and outings of an entire summer Ferino spent covertly shooting at every big Crew meetup and nostalgically ties together the very best moments of camaraderie, beauty and cars the summer of 2015 with TLG had to offer.
Another one from LS Drifts, this time taking it slow-n-low with Stance Department DE.
Drifts has been quite generous with his talents, putting out this video with German-based Stance Department DE. Comprised of several TLG members, STDP has been busy since their founding in July, covering several of their car and truck meets on their official YouTube channel.
CoreGaming made their debut on the Newswire last August and have been going strong all through 2016.
CoreGaming PS4 - led by none other than Daniel1Plainview - celebrated their one year anniversary in grand fashion, collaborating with musician Laszlo to put together this cool presentation capturing the cool vibe and bond of the Crew. Members can even log into CoreGaming's website to sign the Crew's official yearbook for posterity.
Hillbilly Agenda - ON A BOAT!
Crew Leader Knoxnerd and the tight-knit collective known as the Hillbilly Agenda have established an ongoing legacy of real-world meetups over the last two years. Knox reached out to let us know the squad now has an official Crew boat, exclusively available for members to take out for a ride. Bearing resemblance to a real life Shitzu Tropic, this Sea Ray SRV220 featuring a V-cabin and a mean inboard V6 is docked in Lake Norris, TN and has been prepped by fellow Crew member and boat mechanic Stokes1214.
To showcase the fun group outings on this mighty vessel, Hillbilly Agenda has created an official Boat Page on their website and even put together an elaborate Boat Operating Manual to ensure that she's handled responsibly by guests.
OFF ROAD ALL-STARS ANNUAL UPDATE
It's been a while since we've checked in with the Off-Road All-Stars, but in that time they've ramped up their squad with a number of new members and taken on a fresh Leader in Stevedogg51, who has long been their head coordinator for all ROAR Racing events and recruitment. The All-Stars now have a number of great events planned and are working hard to involve other notable Racing Crews, such as Cloud9 Racing and Van Society, to participate in everything from custom rallies with "a little off-road twist," to new circuits that mirror real life championships. As always, event streams are broadcast in cinematic view with full commentary, so nothing is missed. Here are a couple of standouts from ROAR's revamping:
"Modern day motor racing is about speed, precision and foremost safety (Yawn). In the “Stirling Cup” we take a nostalgic trip back in time, before the clipboard and crash helmet were invented. A time where a leather flight cap and some goggles were enough to protect you from the hard tarmac and inevitable fireball should you flip your vehicle into a crowd of tweed dressed spectators, smoking pipes and checking their pocket watches." - Stevedogg51
A favorite amongst members and participating Crews alike has been the ROAR Stirling Cup Rally, which is raced exclusively in the Stirling GT. With a Le Mans-style standing start, this circuit requires players to line up vehicles in qualifying time order and run to them on cue. The fastest qualifiers have the least distance to run, as shown in the video above. Described as a "clean" and nostalgic endurance racing event that introduces new tactics to GTA Online racing, this circuit also allows slipstreaming so that players can work together on straightaways to gain faster lap times and catch up to the leaders.
ROAR is also pleased to announce the second season of the ROAR Rally Championship. With twelve all new stages and vehicles, this action-packed circuit retains an authentic Rally Championship feel and is open to all Crews and all drivers. This season will include the Sultan RS and Warrener and drivers will once again be able to choose their favorite cars from the Sports class. Stages will be time-based with a standard points system, calling for competitors to establish their fastest lap time in the course and then submit a picture of their time to Crew leaders over a two week period.
