A huge new update is on the way to Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto Online – and it promises ample opportunities when it comes to making a living for your character.
The publisher has announced that a new Gunrunning update will be available next month, providing a number of new missions for players to take on.
"While sharply dressed CEOs trade Special Cargo from lavish air conditioned suites, and leather-clad Bikers own the roadways moving illicit consumer goods; new opportunities are opening in a highly lucrative and equally malicious network hidden underground ripe for takeover by the VIPs, CEOs, and Biker bosses of Los Santos and Blaine County," the company noted in a press statement.
"Dotted throughout Blaine County are hatches - look into these mysterious properties on the Maze Bank Foreclosure site and you'll find sprawling underground headquarters for sale, ready to be stocked with new military grade vehicles and weapons manufacturing equipment capable of developing highly sought after offensive and defensive technologies. As the residents of Los Santos know, the only thing more fun than crime is profit and should you choose to invest in this new business, some extremely shady customers are ready to pay top dollar for what you can deliver."
More business and research opportunities will be available as time goes on, as well as plenty of awesome vehicles that will make your job a lot easier. We've actually included a gallery that includes a glimpse of some of these vehicles, including a weaponized tank-like vehicle that can fire rockets, as well as a cool-looking sports car that looks like something out of Mad Max: Fury Road, complete with cannons on top of the car to do some major damage.
An exact date hasn't been given for the update just yet, but it is coming sometime next month, and chances are it'll keep Grand Theft Auto Online's community busy for some time – especially if you've got multiple teams trying to complete the same job at once. Hey, I saw it first, pal!
Grand Theft Auto Online is available now as part of Grand Theft Auto V, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. There's also a version for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but it'll more than likely not see this update.
