“Three classic rides hit the Southern San Andreas Super Autos catalog this week in the Karin Futo, Bollokan Prairie and the Imponte Ruiner. And not only do all three have brand new liveries available, but so do the Maibatsu Penumbra, the Declasse Mamba and the Invetero Coquette Classic.”

Rockstar added, "The Stone Hatchet and Double-Action Revolver challenges are dishing out double. If you’ve already completed them, play GTA Online to receive your bonus GTA$250,000 any time this week. If you have yet to uncover them, do it this week and earn GTA$250,000 upon completion plus a bonus GTA$250,000 next week."

"America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed.

"After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him."
