'Grand Theft Auto Online' Adds 4x Rewards on Freemode Challenges and Events, New Rides, Discounts, GTA+ Benefits And More

Set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, Grand Theft Auto V delivers a world of unprecedented scale and detail bursting with life, from mountaintops to the depths of the ocean.

When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.

Switch between the interconnected lives of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as they embark on a series of heists across Los Santos and Blaine County in the biggest, deepest and richest open world experience yet, with game world enhancements that include new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.

Grand Theft Auto V also comes with Grand Theft Auto Online, the dynamic and ever-evolving online universe for up to 30 players, and includes all existing gameplay upgrades and content released since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online.

Rise through the ranks to become a CEO of your own criminal empire by trading contraband or form a Motorcycle Club and rule the streets. Pull off daring co-operative Heists, enter adrenaline-fueled Stunt Races, compete in unique Adversary Modes or create your own content to play and share with the entire GTA community.

Freemode Challenges and Events continue to deliver massive rewards in GTA Online, with Freemode activities occurring more frequently across Southern San Andreas – and serving up Quadruple Rewards.

2X GTA$ and RP on Motor Wars

Get ready to parachute out of an idling Cargobob into an active battlefield with nothing on you but a sidearm and a death wish — those left standing when the smoke clears win in Motor Wars, paying out Double Rewards to all players, all week long.

This Week’s Prize Ride: The Bravado Verlierer

Determined LS Car Meet members who place in the Top 3 in the Street Race Series for 3 days in a row will earn a Bravado Verlierer, a throwback sports car that cuts a singular silhouette as it bobs and weaves between rows of traffic on the Great Ocean Highway.

Try Out the Pegassi Toros, Declasse Mamba, and Pfister 811
Glossy ads are nice and all, but there’s nothing quite like feeling the engine’s growl for yourself: visit the Test Track in the LS Car Meet to give the Pegassi Toros, Declasse Mamba, and Pfister 811 a spin between the columns, see how they fare in Scrambles and Time Trials, or just freewheel for a bit — all at no personal cost.

This Week on The Diamond Casino Podium: The Ocelot Ardent
