GTA Online’s Freemode Week Announced

It seems Rockstar is taking us on a trip down memory lane with their new string of week-long GTA Online events, looking at the big updates of the game’s past. Recently we’ve been treated to an event focusing on the content of the recently released Cunning Stunts, after which the next event stepped back in time taking inspiration from Further Adventures in Finance and Felony as well as Executives and Other Criminals.


Now Rockstar is cranking the dial on their pseudo time-machine even further back to the days of Freemode Events, when random wacky missions, werewolves and lots of back-end tweaking were the name of the game. Freemode Events was a pretty notable GTA Online DLC, though not necessarily for its content. Sure, all of the new randomly triggered pastimes are pretty fun, but sometimes they don’t quite go as planned and won’t exactly make you rich.

The importance of Freemode Events stemmed from two factors. Firstly, this was the update that finally brought the Rockstar Editor to the Xbox One and Playstation 4, making the built-in gameplay recording and video editing suite a PC exclusive affair no longer. The other main contribution was a massive overhaul of GTA Online on a technical level. Much of the code related to the structuring, instancing and other juicy techy things was updated or replaced.


Now, this technical overhaul didn’t show its benefits immediately. Players had to wait until Executives and Other Criminals was launched to fully understand what went down. Executives added he VIP and bodyguard system which was a dynamic the likes of which GTA Online has never before seen.

Either way, from yesterday through the 1st of September, Rockstar will be celebrating the goofy old update with a GTA Online event. This is the third consecutive such event to be hosted since the release of the latest content update. You can bet that Rockstar is busy brewing something in their DLC pot, but chances are it won’t be announced before the summer is out, what with 4 days left.


If you haven’t yet guessed from the theme of the event, the double GTA $ and RP promo this time around is for playing the titular Freemode Events. These randomly spawning optional missions crop up every now and then while messing around outside of jobs or other missions. They just appear wherever on the large open-world map of the game, enticing enterprising players to go over and try them out.

Fan favorites like Hunt the Beast, Penned In and Criminal Damage have remained popular to this day, while Dead Drop and Hot Property are often passed up by players. Either way, the promo offered by this new event will surely spur players to take advantage of these random missions more often as long as the bonus rewards last.


With many of the Freemode Events requiring a quick wheel which will race you to victory, the vehicle discount on offer this week is 25% off the Vapid FMJ. If you prefer looks over performance, but still want plenty of both, you can always grab a Sultan RS upgrade from Benny’s with a 50% discount – which is welcome, considering how damn expensive lowriders are.

This event also wants to help GTA Online players accessorize while staying dangerously stylish. All pistols, which can be considered among the most elegant of firearms, are 50% off. If a stock pistol is too pedestrian for your fine tastes, the same discount applies to all luxury weapon finishes. You know, so the guy you’re killing will know that he’s not only dead, but he’s poor too.


Naturally a man or woman of your fine tastes wouldn’t want their perfectly tailored clothes to be besmirched with aesthetically damning smuts like bulletholes and blood. When you know you’re going to take fire, you ought to wear some body armor over that suit or dress. Luckily for you, said armor is also just half-priced through the 1st.

If leaving your opponents eating dust just doesn’t cut it, you can always invest in explosive vehicle mods, which are the last item on the list of goods enjoying a 50% discount due to the event. Other goods, such as trusty Assault Rifles, smaller but just as deadly SMGs and vehicle resprays are flaunting a 25% discount. All ammo for discounted weapons also enjoys the same markdown.


Announcing the new rotation of Premium Races whenever an event week begins has seemingly been added to the generic event checklist, seeing as all of the events since Cunning Stunts’ release have done so. The newest track on which the finest and fastest racers of GTA Online may compete to nick the prize of 100k for first place is Rally, one of the official Stunt Races added to the game by Rockstar.

Which of these bonuses will you be cashing in on while playing GTA Online this week?

GTA Online Gets Third Car, Power Play Maps

In the past two weeks, GTA Online got a pair of small scale updates, each adding a car along with some other bonus content. First in line was the insanely expensive Grotti X80 Proto, which is now the fastest car in the game, followed by the Pfister 811, a hybrid supercar with a sassy description to boot.


The first update was accompanied by the surprisingly popular new Adversary Mode, Power Play, which is basically your regular old team deathmatch with all kinds of crazy power ups that turns players into the super-fast and super-strong beast from the “Hunt the Beast” Freemode Event, or they mess up the control scheme of the enemy team.

The mode kicked off with three maps, like most Adversary Modes do. However, following unprecedented success and popularity, it was likely that it would too receive another map-pack like some of the other Modes have in the past.


Which brings us to the bonus feature of this new mini-update. However, chances are most players are most excited about the all new car that has been added to the game – the Dewbauchee Seven-70. The car is an addition to the “sports” class of in-game rides and shows it off with a sleek design.

Despite the pretty haughty tagline of “the one percent is the only percent that matters”, the Seven-70 isn’t exactly a record breaker. Players have tested the vehicle, legendary GTA Online car tester Broughy1322 (pretty much the only YouTuber dealing exclusively with GTA whose videos aren’t unwatchable trash) included, and the results aren’t stellar.


Overall, the Seven-70 ranks 7th (providence?) on the list of sports cars in terms of overall race performance. Its price isn’t exactly too high either – just $659,000. Of course, to low level players, that might still seem like much, but in comparison to the $2,700,000 of the X80, it is pocket change.

The visual customization options are pretty standard, however the carbon black roof cannot be changed and will remain the same color and material as the stock version. There is some room for performance upgrades, but keep in mind that the ranking of 7th place refers to the fully upgraded version.


The update also adds those three new Power Play maps we’ve talked about above. The three new locations are the LSIA (quite the popular location for missions), the Port of Los Santos and the banks of the Alamo Sea. These new locations are bound to add a spin to the fan favorite Adversary Mode.

But what is a GTA Online update without an accompanying event, right? Instead of the usual event playlist offering double RP, Rockstar instead has two special playlists which will net players twice as much GTA $ as well as RP.


Through the 8th, the three new Power Play maps will be included in the playlist. This is one of the better paying Modes by default, so make sure to capitalize on the double promo. Starting on the 9th and running through the 11th, this playlist will be replaced by another with two Power Play maps and a “guest” map from the Trading Places Adversary Mode, which was introduced in the Further Adventures in Finance and Felony DLC.

Of course, there is also your regular host of discounts, however this time around Rockstar really pulled themselves together with some really useful price cuts. First and foremost is the 20% discount on all offices and interior decor – these offices usually start at one million and are required to run black market missions in GTA Online. Add to that a 15% discount on warehouse workbench upgrades and this event really benefits fledgling CEOs out there.


If you’re mostly satisfied with how things are going but feel that in order for your life to be complete and round, you just really need to own a freaking attack helicopter, Rockstar has you covered. The fearsome Savage is now 50% off, meaning that securing airborne defense for your crates won’t eat into your savings as drastically as before.

Garages are also discounted while the event lasts, which is fitting with all of these new cars being added. If you haven’t maxed out your limit for properties and garages, now would be the time to do so. At 25% off, the 10 slot garages are pretty affordable.


Finally, Rockstar is increasing the amount of time that the limited Independence Day special items are available in GTA Online. The vehicles and items will be up for grabs until the 11th of July at a 25% markdown. This gives players who were away from home for the 4th a chance to get their hands on a Liberator or Sovereign, as well as a Musket for good measure. All of the content that was introduced with the DLC, sans the ground-fireworks, are on sale.

Which part of this new GTA Online update and event has you the most excited?

GTA 5 Discounted In Steam Summer Sale

Depending on where you are in the world, summer has only really kicked in these past few days with the weeks leading up being pretty mild. This heat wave is probably which gave Valve the idea to finally kick off the annual event that PC gamers across the globe look forward to and their wallets dread – the Summer Sale.


Every year, the Summer Sale sees countless titles in the Steam library discounted majorly, sending gamers on something of a shopping spree wherein they will buy about 12 games, of which they will only ever play 6 and finish 2. Then again, that might be just me.

The summer sale is not only a chance to exploit poor small indie developers by purchasing games the full price of which is $10 for about $2, but also an opportunity to pick up large AAA productions for less than their usual price.

Rockstar Games has had something of a rough ride with Steam sales in the past, what with that one case two years ago when the price of the game was jacked up so that when discounted, it was the same price.


Rockstar quickly corrected the issue and the price was properly discounted, which might suggest that this was a bug in the system – which isn’t implausible, seeing as pricing bugs are quite frequent with Steam. The in sales since, GTA 5 has been consistently properly discounted.

Even though GTA 5 is a three year old game, it still enjoys massive popularity and high sales, so it’s getting quite a bit of attention this time around. Since Valve is ditching the flash sales feature typical of past discount event, the current markdowns will not change over the course of the sale, so if you’re looking to buy GTA 5 then there’s no point in waiting too much.

Not only the base game, but the Shark Cards and the bundles have been discounted as well. The main game has gotten a 40% discount putting it at 35,99€, with the markdowns increasing the bigger the Shark Card you bundle it with.


The Great White bundle is discounted by 49% (Seriously? 49%? Why not 50%?), costing 38,23€ – an amazing deal, considering that the Great White card adds $1,250,000 to your in-game account and this barely costs more than the base game.

The Whale Shark bundle is discounted by 55%, leaving the final price at 43,62€, which is a more significant jump compared to the previous tier. This still is a great deal, especially compared to the original price. These Shark Cards go a long way to make early game GTA Online a less unforgiving experience.

Yup, it's a games sale
Yup, it’s a games sale

Last up is the Megalodon bundle, packing a card worth 8 million in in-game currency. This bundle has seen a massive 62% discount, putting the price at 51,82€, which is still cheaper than the base game at full price. While the base game discount isn’t the best one by far, this might be the cheapest the Megalodon bundle has ever been since the game’s release.

Some players still haven’t transitioned from last-gen consoles and they seem to be the target audience here. Though GTA 5 at maximum graphical settings is notoriously hardware-taxing, it is damn well optimized making the game more than playable on mid-range rigs.


Then again, players who are simply looking for some cheaper than usual Shark Cards might want to take advantage of these deals too. After all, these are all cheaper than full priced cards and owning an additional copy of the game can’t hurt.

This isn’t relevant for the Whale or Megalodon cards though, as those are also discounted if bought as stand-alones. The Whale Shark Card is discounted by 33%, costing 25,45€, while the Megalodon has been discounted by 40%, costing 44,99€.


Acquiring money in GTA Online is pretty arduous when done the hard way (meaning earning it via in-game missions), so these Shark Cards will come in handy for newbie players and veterans transferring from old-gen alike.

However, if you’d rather just cash in on the discount for the base game, we have a nifty guide prepared to help you make cash quicker, with all the best missions and techniques listed to get you to the top as quickly as possible.

Which GTA 5 deal will you take advantage of?

GTA 5 Heavily Discounted On PC

GTA 5 is probably going for a Guinness World Record for “game most frequently discounted” or something like that with all these sales going on all the time. We’ve always said that it’s technically on sale all the time, as there is almost definitely some kind of discount on one of the platforms at some distributor somewhere, at any given time.


The game has managed to retain the same full price that it had upon launch, which is rare when first release happened three years ago. Not even the biggest AAA rivals keep their value for so long, but it seems that the game is compensating for the $60 regular price tag with the constant sales.

While the PS4 version of the game is trying to keep up, it is undoubtedly the PC version that sees the most discounts, simply due to the high number of third party digital distribution sites available for the platform. In fact, GTA 5 has hit its lowest price ever on PC last year, going for less than thirty bucks.


While this most recent sale gets close to that, it isn’t breaking any records. The base game and some Shark Card bundles are all discounted on GreenManGaming, a third party game-key distribution site.

The standard version is discounted by 33%, the Great White Shark Card bundle by 35%, the Whale Shark Bundle by 40% and finally the Megalodon bundle by 45%. Add to this a stacking 20% coupon code “DEALZON20” and the prices are slashed by an even greater degree.

Not only is this a great way for players to upgrade to the definitive edition of GTA 5, but it is also a prime time to nab some of the bigger Shark Cards for cheaper. For example, the stock price of the Megalodon Shark Card is $100. With these discounts, you can buy a Megaloson bundle for $59.83, which is a pretty solid markdown, plus you’ll have a spare copy of the game to gift to your friends, for example.

The other card bundles don’t quite offer such epic savings, but all of these are solid discounts, perfect for any player still looking to upgrade, or to acquire some in-game cash the easy way for cheap. GreenManGaming often hosts sales on many popular titles, so even if you aren’t buying in now, you should keep an eye on their store page to catch any good discounts.

Will you be cashing in on any of these sweet GTA 5 deals?

GTA Online Gets New Maps And Weekly Event

One of the most overlooked features of the recently released Further Adventures in Finance and Felony GTA Online update is the all new Trading Places Adversary Mode. The mode takes the concept of climbing the social ladder by going over those above you rather literally.

The game starts with the players being assigned either to the “winners” or “losers” team. Losers become winners by killing winners, but need to keep an eye out for other losers, because if they kill them while they’re winners, they become losers again.


This is the odd occurrence of something being complicated on paper but simple in practice. However, like most other Adversary Modes, Trading Places didn’t exactly catch the attention of the majority of players, who were busy bankrupting themselves with the new content from the GTA Online DLC.

While some Adversary Modes like Sumo manage to hit the right note with the community and turn into popular classics played months after release, others become de-populated within a week. For every Slasher you have at least three In and Outs. Rockstar is trying to push Trading Places into the former category – and the mode has that potential, due to the thrill of its unpredictable nature.


As such, the devs have expanded the Mode’s map roster with three new additions as of today. Hop on to GTA Online and you can take the class-war to Little Seoul, the Lost Club House in Grapeseed and the Harmony Place Construction Site. Unfortunately, there is no double RP or cash promo going on for the new maps.

However this isn’t all that’s graced GTA Online recently. Rockstar has kicked off another set of week-long discounts as well as a log-in reward in an unnamed event celebrating… the new maps, probably?


If you log in to GTA Online anytime through next Monday, you’ll be treated to a nice set of red-swirly pajamas and a matching smoking jacket. They complement last-week’s pastel green set wondrously – if we’re lucky, Rockstar will add further colors in the future.

The discounts we mentioned seek to improve your chances of nabbing those special cargo crates while under fire. Getting your tires shot out while transporting precious goods is the fastest way to lose big time on an investment, so a 50% discount on bulletproof tires should help you out. Of course, the health of the driver is also imperative, so the price of car armor has also been slashed by 25%.


If you’d rather take to the skies instead of burning rubber, but don’t want to leave your arsenal grounded, GTA Online offers a wide selection of military aircraft including attack helicopters. One of these fearsome vehicles (albeit the one player like the least) is also on sale. You can buy a Annihilator at a 25% markdown through Monday.

However if you’re stuck on foot or in a mission which requires you to leave your rides behind, you still won’t be left without a few toys. Ammunation is holding a pretty large sale on a wide range of products.


All ammo types, parachutes, body armor, weapon bling and a whopping 7 guns are discounted by 25%. The weapons on offer are the Assault Rifle, Compact Rifle, Carbine Rifle, Combat PDW, SMG, Machine Pistol and Heavy Shotgun.

While Finance and Felony only recently dropped, players are already anticipating the next GTA Online DLC. Based on the post announcing the release of F&F, the name of the next update has been revealed to be “Cunning Stunts” instead of “Stunt Ready” that was teased in an earlier post. It is likely that the three recently leaked vehicles will be added to the game with this update.

Which part of this new GTA Online event are you happiest about?

GTA 5 Shark Card Bundle Cheap For Xbox Gold Members

GTA 5 is known for many things. It is praised for its story and writing. Many enjoy the solid and tight gameplay, offering both great driving mechanics and pretty good shooting mechanics, with a ton of stuff to do in a beautifully crafted world. It has the most popular multiplayer mode in the world of gaming (besides free to play stuff and EVE Online, I guess). It has 8 million unique players every week. It has sold over 65 million copies, breaking pretty much every sales record ever.


However, in spite of all this, GTA 5 will probably go down in history as the most frequently discounted full price AAA game ever. If you look hard enough and take enough sources into account, there probably isn’t any stretch of time when the game isn’t on sale on some platform or distribution site.

While third-party sites are the most frequent discounters, the Playstation Store is also pretty much constantly slashing the game’s price. However, the Xbox hasn’t been as hot on the game in terms of sales – though it did take it’s share of console promos.


Fans of Microsoft’s consoles do get a treat though, finally. If you’re an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you might have gotten used to special deals by now – but nothing quite like this. Maybe you’re looking to buy a Shark Card? Well, you’re in luck. A lot of it.

Right now, based on the reports of a player posting on the GTA V Subreddit, Gold subscribers get a discount on the GTA 5 Megalodon Shark Card Bundle which includes both the game and the card – thing is, the discount applies to the bundle alone, not the card alone, making it cheaper than the standalone microtransaction.


On the Xbox Store, you can buy the Megalodon Shark Card for the standard $99. However, the bundle including the game as well goes for $78, slashing a good $20 off the price.

For non-Gold subscribers, or when viewing the page without logging in, the un-discounted price will be shown. Only subscribers will have access to the cheap deal. In the end, you’ll be getting a second copy of the game along with your GTA $8,000,000 – not that you can do much with it.


On the other hand, this would be a perfect chance for upgrading to the newer version. Maybe you used to have an Xbox 360 with GTA 5, upgraded to the Xbox One but didn’t buy the game again and happen to be a Gold subscriber?

Will you be cashing in on this deal?

GTA Online Head To Head Week Set Loose

If you thought that Rockstar would put an to their endless stream of event-weeks just because the release date of their next big GTA Online DLC was announced, you were dead wrong! Just a day after the end of last week’s Capture carnival, Rockstar has kicked off their newest collection of double RP and GTA $ opportunities mixed with discounts.

Head to Head week turns the spotlight back on racing and vehicular combat. During the weekend, all races – including fan-made maps – as well as the SUMO Adversary Mode will reward players with twice as much cash and RP.


For some reason Rockstar is skimping on the double GTA $ promos lately, as both last week and this week we only saw opportunities to rack up twice as much cash during the weekends as opposed to the whole event, as was customary in the past. While the boosted payouts were helpful, they were hardly substantial enough to decrease Shark Card sales, so this is kind of baffling.

However the double RP promo is here to stay. Playing the event playlist from Monday onward will still help you jump those levels at double the speed.


As brief as it may sound, that’s where the activities for this event end. However, Rockstar more than makes up for it on the discounts side of things. If you’re looking to live in style away from the stress of the big city and still have property slots to spare, all Stilt Houses are 50% for the whole duration of the event.

Stilt Houses were introduced in the Executives and Other Criminals DLC as high-end luxury residences, with large interiors and elegant furnishing. As such, they have a pretty hefty price-tag to match.


In a rather odd move, a particularly sought-after vehicle has also had its price slashed. The Benefactor Dubsta 6×6 is a sturdy ride and pretty rare on the streets of Los Santos – which shouldn’t be surprising, since it was designed for the most hardcore off-roaders.

The Dubsta isn’t the only rugged car to be discounted during this week. If you’d rather tear through the mutilated corpses of your enemies instead of rough terrain, Warstock Cache and Carry has you covered. While the standard variant of the Insurgent has had its price slashed by only 25%, you can buy the armed version at half price throughout the event.


The biggest money-saver however comes for one of the most expensive stores in GTA Online. All upgrades and mods that can be bought at Benny’s Original Motorworks are discounted by 25%. Fully upgrading a lowrider is just about the most pricey thing you can do in the game beyond buying a yacht or a golden jet. 25% might not seem like much at first glance, but when that comes off of more than a million, it suddenly seems a lot more significant.

If you plan to misbehave during the span of the event, getting out of trouble is going to be cheaper. Exactly 75% cheaper. All of Lester’s services, available via in-game smartphone are at a discount – getting rid of the cops or putting a price on someone’s head won’t set you back as much.


Last but not least, Ammunation is also decreasing the price of select items in their stock.  The Shrewsbury RPG and Hawk & Little Homing Launcher are both discounted by 25%.

But what is a gun worth without stuff to shoot from it? Both of these heavy weapons spit rockets like there’s no tomorrow, so it is easy to find yourself wanting. The ammo for both weapons is discounted by the same amount as the arms themselves.

Which part of this GTA Online Event Week appeals to you the most?

GTA 5 Discounted In PS4 May Madness

In case someone was keeping track, that was probably the longest stretch of time without a discount on GTA 5. The last time the game had a discount was in late April, also on the PS4, incidentally.


Previously, sales featuring the game were so numerous that they practically ran back to back, only shuffling which platforms were involved. These frequent sales are one of the ways through which Rockstar has managed to keep the game’s non-discount price still at the $60 mark, three years after launch.

May Madness, lasting until the first of June, is one of the biggest Playstation specific sales Sony has going on. It includes over 100 discounted titles across the PS4, PS3 and PSVita, including a wide selection of digital-only deals as well. The GTA games have been frequent members of such discount promos due to their immense popularity and brand recognition.


Thanks to certain PS2 games being available in a remastered state on the PS4, GTA 5 isn’t the only installment of Rockstar’s open world crime’em’up available at a discount. While GTA 5 can be bought at a 22% markdown, various Shark Card bundles alongside the 3D era trilogy is on sale as well.

GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas can be bout separately, however you’ll be saving the most if you buy the trilogy pack (which, considering the amount of content in it, is more than bloody worth it at that price). Seeing as there is a Shark Card promo going on, meaning that this weekend Shark Cards will net you more in-game cash for the same price, the Shark Card bundles are even better deals than what is apparent on first glance.


GTA IV and it’s DLCs, alongside Chinatown Wars join the lineup for sales on the PS3 and the PSVita.

Will you be buying any GTA title for your Playstation during May Madness?

GTA Mobile Sale Ending Soon

Rockstar knows that with the extremely wide popularity of the GTA franchise, especially outside of the hardcore gaming  community, they have plenty of chances to cater to their fans with new content. Considering that in the past few years, the mobile gaming industry has far outperformed the regular gaming industry in terms of revenue, it would have been unsound from a business point of view for Rockstar not to jump in.


Over the span of a few years, Rockstar has gradually remastered various 3D era GTA games and released them on mobile devices with updated graphics (who would have thought that phones are more powerful than consoles, even old ones?), new controls and in some cases some new content as well.

The first game to get the mobile treatment was GTA III, celebrating its 10 year anniversary. Every year since, Rockstar has released the games of the 3D era in consecutive order. Liberty City Stories was the latest release. It made its way to iOS, Android and Kindle devices with a staggered release.


Chinatown Wars, which by virtue of its release date technically is part of the HD era despite being a top-down game with graphics evocative of the cartoon style seen in cover-art and promotional media typical of GTA has also seen a mobile release. Rockstar even experimented with their other franchises. They have breathed new life into Max Payne and releasing the first game of the shooter franchise on mobiles as well.

Rockstar is holding a sale on these mobile games which will be ending on the 18th of May, Wednesday. GTA III, Vice City, Liberty City Stories and Chinatown Wars are available for merely $2.99, San Andreas for $3.99 and Max Payne Mobile for just $1.99.


All of these games are complete and uncut ports of the originals. Considering how much content was crammed into each GTA game with all the easter eggs, side missions, customization, mini-games, exploration and on and on, these prices are a steal. San Andreas is understandably the most expensive, as it has the largest map with three major cities and four continents included instead of the standard of one – and a lengthy story to match.

Chances are that Rockstar will continue this trend of re-releasing GTA games on mobile, meaning that Vice City Stories is next in line. Of course, we’ll probably also see Max Payne 2 on mobile soon as well, possibly accompanied by Bully.

Will you guys be picking up any GTA games on mobile?

GTA Online’s Time Trials Week Speeds In

Following the recent release of In and Out, the newest Adversary Mode for GTA Online, last week’s event ended on Thursday. The new mode was in rotation for the double RP and GTA $ playlist for three days during its course to spur players into spending time with it – in spite of the general lack of popularity Adversary Modes suffer from. However, based on the recent trend, it’s event out- event in with Rockstar these days, so players were eager to see what the next theme will be.


Rockstar kicked off the Time Trials week yesterday with a theme, double RP and GTA $ promo, new discounts and other features. Despite the deep roots the game franchise has in the world of underground racing and car-culture, the speedier fans rarely get their time to shine. Races don’t way all too well in relation to other jobs, especially if you don’t come in first place. Events also rarely put the focus on these kinds of missions.

This time however, Freemode Time Trials will reward players with twice as much RP and cash as usual. Every day of the week, a different trial will have the double reward buff. Players who have already completed these trials will get a small extra bonus for winning them again. Even so, the regular double payout is still substantial for first-timers.

The Time Trials and their schedule is as follows:

  • Friday May 6th: Vinewood Bowl
  • Saturday May 7th: Down Chiliad
  • Sunday May 8th: Mount Gordo
  • Monday May 9th: Great Ocean Highway
  • Tuesday May 10th: Sawmill
  • Wednesday May 11th: Maze Bank Arena
  • Thursday May 12th: End to End

In order to assure victory, you’ll need a reliable steed. Legendary Motorsport has you covered with serious discounts on some of the fastest vehicles in the game – whether you like your ride to have two wheels or four. The Zentorno, Osiris, Akuma and Hakuchou are joined by the former fastest car in the game, the T20, in the list of vehicles which can be bought at 50% off during the event.

But sometimes, stock vehicles just don’t cut it. Los Santos Customs is offering marked down prices for performance and even visual upgrades. Suspension, Engine and Brake modifications will make your car handle better, while new rims will make it look better – all at a 30% discount.



However that isn’t all this time around, as Rockstar has thrown in some bonuses which usually don’t show up in such events. Through the 12th, any service Lester may lend you over the phone becomes more of a favor, seeing as you won’t need to pay for it.

This means getting the cops off your tail, or ensuring that they don’t get on it in the first place won’t make your wallet any lighter. GTA Online’s mechanic service will also be free during the event, so calling it in for property owners will also be a treat.

Pegassi Osiris

Time Trials also aren’t the only way to rank up twice as fast this week in GTA Online either. While you don’t get two times the cash, you will get double RP for playing the land races event playlist from now through the 12th of May.

The event playlist covers On the GOH, Touch Base and Turn the Tide for a nice variety of race types. If you’re swift on your wheels and are working towards those unlocks, these will help you get there.


Whatever Rockstar’s plans for upcoming content may be, this new event doesn’t shine any light on them. DLC for GTA Online has been running pretty dry in the past months, with only an Adversary Mode here, a few cars there…

Players are bit weary of both lowriders and Adversary Modes at this point. While the endless stream of events does help, many fans are calling for new content to be released. A campaign for a larger Biker update was put together, which included a fairly popular petition as well.


Since Rockstar might be focusing on GTA Online for quite some time, chances are they in this for the long haul and might be working on something bigger and therefore more time consuming.

Which part of this new GTA Online week-long event are you most excited for? Are you a fan of Time Trials?
