GTA Online Vehicles Discounted

The successor to yesterday’s heavy weapon sale, today Rockstar has slashed the price on the vehicles associated with the Pacific Standard Job heist, which is the theme of the current GTA Online week long event. The final of these events, featuring the last and most difficult heist, is offering a double RP and GTA$ reward on all the set-up missions for the heist, the heist itself, and various jobs and side-missions around the open world which are at least tangentially related to the heist.

As was the case with the previous events, Rockstar has also announced that they will be running a series of temporary daily sales in tandem, until the 9th of August. Previously they had discounted the sticky bombs in one sale, and the heavy sniper rifle and homing launcher in another, which ended yesterday. Cycling through the sales, today we come up on a pretty significant one.

Rockstar has halved the price of all vehicles which are connected to the Pacific Standard Job heist. Some of these are pretty heavy hitters, so make sure to take advantage of the sale. The vehicles on offer are the Boxville Van, the Savage Helicopter, the Gang Burrito Van and the Lectro Bike.

The boxville van is the heaviest delivery van in the game, but does not have a particularly hefty price tag, going for $45,000 without discount. The Gang Burrito Van is a GTA veteran having appeared in previous games many times, and it has gone through quite a few visual iteration. Sans discount, the van costs $65,000. The Lectro Bike is where the price skyrockets. If you miss out this weekend, you can only buy one of these beastly bikes for $750,000.

Leaving the best for last, the Savage Helicopter is a monstrous military gunship toting several missiles and a machine gun mounted on the nose. The full price of the vehicle is $1,950,000, so this half price sale is a great opportunity for those of you looking to buy a savage.

Will you be picking up any of these vehicles?

GTA Online Heist Vehicles Sale

As the current GTA Online double GTA$ and RP event draws to the close (with another one right around the corner no doubt), the temporary sales cycle over to the last set, and it’s quite a big one. Over the course of the week, Rockstar has slashed the price on a wide selection of weapons, clothing items and other gear.

To top things off, Rockstar is kind enough to let players purchase the two vehicles which are directly related to the Series A Funding heist (the theme of the current event) at half price. Vehicles are among the largest money-holes in the game, so this is a pretty big thing, especially for the kinds of players who may not have the time to play GTA Online every day, and do not have the endless droves of cash necessary to buy some wheels.

The Karin Technical and Maibatsu Mule are both 50% during this weekend. Both cars in question are trucks, though the Mule is a basic box truck with a low price of $35,000 even when it isn’t on sale. It does have a history with the series, however, as it has appeared in every GTA game since III with the single exception of GTA Advance. The second vehicle taking part in the sale, the Karin Technical, on the other hand, has the pretty price tag of one million when there are no discounts in play, so chopping half off of that is a damn great deal.

These vehicles are unlocked once the player completes the Series A Funding heist, which rewards double the in-game currency while the event lasts, so you’ll certainly have the necessary cash to buy these beasties. The Karin Technical is a particularly mean machine, as it has a heavy machine gun mounted on its bulky backside. Will any of you take advantage of these discounts?

GTA Online Double Event On Series A Funding Heist

Continuing their string of double GTA$ and RP events in GTA Online, Rockstar has recently announced that in between the 27th of July and 2nd of August, players completing the set-up missions and the finale of the Series A Funding heist will receive, surprise surprise, double GTA$ and RP.

doubleweek

These event are an on-going campaign to entice players to turn to honorable means of acquiring in-game currency and RP, as opposed to hacks or mods. Rockstar hopes that by doubling the reward on select activities, players would rather actually play the bloody game rather than cheat and risk a ban. Why anyone would resort to underhanded idiocy such as attempting cheats and hacks in a multiplayer game (bending the rules in singleplayer is fine, especially when we’re talking about Rockstar’s cheats) is beyond logic, but we’re trying to shut down these bastards, not understand them.

Rockstar has also upped the bonus rewards on the challenges associated with the heist, which are optional objectives that net players additional gains and bragging rights. Completing the following challenges will stuff your wallets twice as much as they did before.

  • Complete in under 6:30
  • Kill 75 enemies
  • Nobody gets wasted

Once again like last time around, if your character hasn’t hit the level requirement for the heist, which is 12, Rockstar is doubling the RP reward on a number of regular activities you can complete in the over-world. The following jobs will get you where you need to be twice as fast.

  • Gang Attacks
  • Mission: Out of Harmony
  • Missions: Deliver a Package Bonus
  • Deathmatch: All Kills
  • Deathmatch: 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place finishes
  • Deathmatch: 3, 6 and 10 Kills
  • Deathmatch: Power Player, Kill When Close to Death
  • Vehicle Deathmatch: Kill Power Player
  • Survival: Wave Reached
  • Capture: RP Rewards for Collecting Mission Package

And to finish things up, over the course of the event, Rockstar will once again be cycling through limited discounts on gear, starting off by slashing the price of the Meth Lab Suit by 50%.

Will you guys cash in on this opportunity?

GTA V Getting Vehicle Coupons

With the recent release of part II of the Ill-Gotten Gains DLC, Rockstar has added a massive roster of new, luxurious vehicles to GTA Online to keep the rich players from complaining that they have nothing to spend all their money on. These include a luxury off-road vehicle and what might be the new fastest car in the game.

Naturally, keeping with the theme of the DLC, these vehicles are pretty damn expensive, and Rockstar wants to give those players a chance who haven’t the time to amass millions upon millions in in-game currency to try out the new toys. These discounts will last for a week, though you can expect them to resurface every now and again in the form of weekend or special events, so don’t fret if, by chance, you can’t log in this week.

To help get you into one of their new vehicles, the esteemed salesmen at Legendary Motorsport are offering a one-time 25% REBATE on your next qualifying purchase this week (July 8th – 15th).

The requirements to qualify for the coupon are 1) join/be a member of a GTA Online Crew, and 2) sign up for the Rockstar Games Mailing List.

The DLC these new, expensive vehicles are a part of, Ill-Gotten Gains Part II, launched together with the newest update for GTA Online. Not unlike last time around, 1.28 is causing quite a few new issues, not only fixing old ones. There was some mishap with the garages last time around too, however with 1.28, the garages have been re-arranged, so if it seems like a vehicle is missing, make sure to check all of your properties, as the missing vehicle may be stored on one of those.

We have found that some players’ garages may have been rearranged after updating to 1.28. If you think a vehicle is missing, try calling your mechanic and scrolling through your various garages to see if the vehicle was moved to another location erroneously.

Whether or not 1.28 fixed the issues with mods, we do not know yet.

Have you picked up one of the new vehicles yet? Which is your favorite?

GTA V Sale On Xbox One

With the upcoming Xbox Ultimate Game Sale, Microsoft seeks to take a bite out of your vacation savings with massive summer price drops. Among a slew of other games, GTA V will be among the discounted titles, giving players a chance to jump in at a lower price if they haven’t already. You know you always wanted to utilize the cell phone cheats and also the new special vehicle cheats (scroll right down)!

xbone

Considering the insane amount of copies GTA V sold, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who isn’t already causing havoc in Los Santos on a regular basis. If you’re going to pick up GTA V during this sale, you’ll be doing it at a 25% discount and also get a free Great White Shark Cash Card worth $1,250,000 in game currency. Just in time for the upcoming Ill-Gotten Gains Part II DLC, which will add a boatload of expensive luxury items for you to blow all your money on, such as a flashy off-road beast of a vehicle.

The sale kicked off today, and will go all summer with various deals. Other than GTA V, many other popular AAA titles and a few indies also had their prices cut. The discounts range from 10% (the only game with this joke of a discount is FIFA 15, obviously…) to 75%, with most games’ price cut in half. This will give Xbox One players to expand their libraries with a few of the top games of the past two years they might have missed, at a discount.

Rockstar isn’t a stranger to summer sales, however the last one didn’t go over so well, and there was more than one issue. Rockstar was accused to inflating the price of GTA V prior to the sale so that while allegedly there was a 25% discount in place, players essentially were paying full price, and that they forced you to buy a bundle with a cash card to void the refund guarantee.

Last week, we alerted you to a special deal where you can get a free bonus game if you pre-order the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V from the Rockstar Warehouse. If you still intend to pre-order but haven’t yet, here’s another offer you might consider.

If you pre-order GTA V from Green Man Gaming, you can use the latest voucher code to get 23% off your order: SAVE23-PEROFF-MOSANT

The GMG digital download of GTA V will be redeemable at the Rockstar Games Social Club. A bonus Steam key for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will also be included if you make your order before February 1.

GMG vouchers last for a limited amount of time, so hurry over to the site if you want to take advantage of this offer. GTA V will be released for the PC on March 24.

$20 Discount on GTA 5, Winter 2012 Release Date?

It is a little hard to see, but the the latest Future Shop mailer (which is Canadian, btw) has some interesting surprises/information for fans of GTA 5 (and Max Payne 3).

Future Shop GTA 5

Firstly, if you’re considering ordering Max Payne 3 and will definitely be buying GTA 5 (so… all of you!), then if you do it through Future Shop (which is owned by Best Buy), you’ll get $20 off a copy of GTA 5 when it’s released.

Secondly, if you take a closer look at the image above, you’ll see Future Shop have GTA 5 listed for a “Winter 2012” release. In Canada, this is around the end of December (so lets call it the pre-Christmas period) through until March 2013. Of course we wouldn’t put any money on those dates being accurate, but a pre-Christmas launch would certainly be welcome!

By the way, Best Buy in the US (Future Shop’s parent company) are running a similar Max Payne 3 pre-order bonus for their customers, but from what I can tell it only entitles you to some free DLC. Don’t worry though, I’m sure there will be plenty of GTA 5 deals in the US  closer to launch time!
