'Grand Theft Auto Online' Adds The Vespucci Job (Remix) Mode, Double GTA$ and RP on VIP/CEO Work, Bunker Series, Truck Off 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.

GTA Online updates a classic mode this week with The Vespucci Job (Remix), a new take on the original fan-favorite car chase caper, free for all players.

The Vespucci Job (Remix) expands the game of vehicular cat and mouse with seven new variations, each paying homage to some of the most iconic action movie moments of all time, trading the Weeny Issi Classic for variety of vehicles – including classic sports cars, motorcycles, and customized muscle cars – while everything from LSPD squad cars to motorcycles, muscle cars, helicopters and more give chase.

Plus, playing (and replaying) any of the new maps will net players 2X GTA$ and RP all week long.

Introducing: The Vespucci Job (Remix)

The contents of Backlot City are spilling out into the streets of Los Santos. Here comes a star-studded cast of vehicles as one driver steals the limelight. Time to put that Main Character Syndrome to use in The Vespucci Job (Remix) — a high-octane vehicular pursuit across seven maps inspired by Vinewood blockbusters.

The core concept of The Vespucci Job (Remix) remains unchanged from its predecessor — a Runner collects checkpoints while a team of Interceptors tries to take them down by any means necessary. In these new adaptations, the diminutive Issi Classic is replaced with a variety of iconic vehicles – including classic sports cars, motorcycles, and customized muscle cars — while the Interceptors give chase in police squad cars, armored muscle cars, and attack helis to try and thwart their escape.

All participants trying out this new take on a classic mode will benefit from 2X GTA$ and RP this week.

MC Club Bonuses and Double Rewards

Join up with your Motorcycle Club and reap the benefits of aiding and abetting illicit operations. Completing Clubhouse Contracts; squaring up against rival factions in MC Work; and participating in competitive MC Challenges — all are paying out 2X GTA$ and RP, all week long. Supplies for Biker Businesses are also 50% off this week — stock up and offload accordingly.

To help your efforts, all MC Abilities — including Drop Bull Shark Testosterone, Request Vehicle, Drop Ammo, Drop Molotov, and Drop Armor — are free to use through June 1.

2X GTA$ and RP on VIP/CEO Work and Doubled Salaries for Associates and Bodyguards

Criminal overlords and their cohorts stand to rake in double the profits in both GTA$ and RP by completing VIP/CEO Work. Bodyguards and Associates, meanwhile, stand to earn twice the usual salary for enlisting their services.

Only on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S

  • Hao’s Premium Test Ride: Übermacht Sentinel XS: Visit Hao’s Special Works inside the LS Car Meet to inspect this week’s Premium Test Ride: the Übermacht Sentinel XS, an imported sedan injected with all sorts of performance-enhancing fluids and wrapped in the HSW Racing livery.
  • Hao’s Special Works Time Trial: Burn some rubber on the stretch between Sandy Shores and La Puerta in any vehicle upgraded at Hao’s Special Works in this week’s new HSW Time Trial.

2X GTA$ and RP on Bunker Series

Head underground and revisit a selection of subterranean competitive modes in the Bunker Series, awarding 2X GTA$ and RP this week.

2X GTA$ and RP on Truck Off

Truck Off asks a simple question: “How difficult could it possibly be to drop a truck off at the edge of the Grand Senora Desert in one piece?” The answer depends on how cut-throat the team of Attackers is. The game is afoot as soon as the Transporters get behind the wheel in Terminal’s industrial area. Whether the truck makes it to its destination or not, both teams walk away with Double Rewards this week.

2X GTA$ and RP on Mobile Operations

Use the touchscreen inside the Command Center of your Mobile Operations Center to prove your abilities behind the controls of a fleet of weaponized vehicles. Assisting Agent 14 on Mobile Operations missions will earn you Double Rewards through June 1.

Car Meet Prize Ride: Bravado Youga Classic
Did the Bravado Youga Classic neatly wedged on top of the Slamtruck in the middle of the Car Meet catch your eye? Place top 5 in LS Car Meet Races for 2 days in a row and it’s yours — no questions asked.

Try Out the Vulcar Fagaloa, Declasse Vamos, and Dinka Jester RR
Visit the nearby Test Track inside the Car Meet to put the Vulcar Fagaloa, Declasse Vamos, and Dinka Jester RR through their paces in a tryout between the columns, whether it be a randomized Scramble, a Time Trial, or an improvised drag race on the painted track.

On the Diamond Casino Podium: The Übermacht Revolter
After you’ve taken a dip in the rooftop pool, visit the lobby of The Diamond Casino & Resort and give the Lucky Wheel a spin. This week’s top prize is the Übermacht Revolter, a polite sedan with weaponization capabilities.

Make sure you have space to accumulate and offload stock — Warehouses and Vehicle Warehouses alike are both 30% off this week. Meanwhile, calling Imani from your phone and requesting her services (Out of Sight, Source Motorcycle) to stay a step ahead of the competition will cost 75% less.
