Grand Theft Auto Online Weekly Update

It’s that time of the week we all look forward to in Grand Theft Auto Online, the massively popular online component of the hugely successful Grand Theft Auto V, and that is the GTA Online weekly update.

This week’s update brings us a new cops & crooks style Adversary Mode mission The Vespucci Job, three new vehicles (two cars and one helicopter) plus double GTA Online cash for this week’s adversary mode. In addition, we have the usual new premium race and time trial and some generous discounts for business, vehicles, vehicle mods and weapons.

GTA Online race mode: Vespucci Job

The update content comes as part of the drip feed from Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series DLC released three weeks ago.

Here’s what Rockstar Games has to say:

“The battle between predator and prey is one of nature’s most stirring sights: wolf chases elk, lion chases antelope, fleet of police cruisers chase diminutive vintage car. Two teams take to the streets in The Vespucci Job: either you’re the lunatic on the run in the new Issi Classic, trying to hit every checkpoint in time – or you’re a squad car right behind and looking to blow a lot more than the doors off.

As the runner, look to take advantage of narrow alleyways and tight turns to shake the heat while they coordinate with each other to plot your demise. Play The Vespucci Job between now and April 23rd and earn Double GTA$ & RP.”

See You Next Week…

This week’s bonuses and discounts may seem a little underwhelming, however GTA Online cash and RP bonuses have been very generous over the last few weeks, giving players time and opportunity to make money in order to afford some of the new items in this week’s GTA Online DLC update.

The new vehicles coming as part of the drip feed will probably tie-into the latest racing DLC so expect more high-end sports cars and some weaponised vehicles so get earning that GTA Online cash and try not to purchase and existing DLC as there may be discounts on them in the coming weeks.

The coming weeks will see the usual new vehicles and game modes so get racing and earning as the best is probably yet to come.

Thanks for reading and have fun in GTA Online.
