'Grand Theft Auto Online' Adds Triple Rewards on Business Battles, New Rides, Nightclub Discounts And More

by Rainier on May 5, 2022 @ 9:56 a.m. PDT

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.

Kick Off a Month of Freemode Bonuses, Starting with Triple Rewards for Business Battles this Week

Be on the lookout for special bonuses in Freemode all month long. This week, pay particular attention to Business Battles — which are available to all Motorcycle Clubs and Organizations in Freemode — and paying out Triple Rewards until May 11.

Freemode is at the center of the GTA Online experience — with an endless amount of structured and unstructured activities to enjoy. For instance, between Sell and Resupply Missions, MC Presidents and CEOs can trigger Work and Challenges for their respective Clubs and Organizations or bring their squad into Gang Attacks. You can also challenge fellow thrill seekers to Impromptu Races, compete to cause the most destruction across Southern San Andreas in Criminal Damage, vie for the top score in an assortment of Freemode Challenges, team up with other players to Hunt the Beast, and much more.

Those who successfully deliver Goods may also find the Pink or Green Wireframe Bodysuit among their takings.

Only on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S

Hao’s Premium Test Ride: Grotti Brioso R/A: Players on the newest generation of consoles can drop by Hao’s Special Works in the LS Car Meet to scope out this week’s Premium Test Ride: a compact Grotti Brioso R/A bulked up with all the upgrades Hao could shove under the hood.

Hao’s Special Works Time Trial: Gun it between North Chumash and the Palomino Highlands in this week’s new HSW Time Trial.

2X GTA$ and RP on Ron Contact Missions
Noted free-thinker Ron Jakowski isn’t super fond of easily tapped phone lines, but if he deigns to get in touch with you, take him up on his offer — all Ron Contact Missions are paying out 2X GTA$ and RP, all week long.

2X GTA$ and RP on RC Bandito Races and RC Time Trials
This week marks the comeback of miniature mayhem with RC Bandito Races returning to GTA Online, alongside Motor Wars, Truck Off, and Special Vehicle Races.

Shrink yourself down to curb height and reap larger-than-life bonuses this week: the RC Bandito Races and RC Time Trials are both dishing out Double Rewards.

LS Car Meet members who win a Street Race five days in a row will roll away with a set of keys belonging to the Progen Itali GTB for their efforts.

Give the Pegassi Infernus, Truffade Adder, and Pegassi Reaper a Trial Run on the Test Track
Give the Pegassi Infernus, Truffade Adder, and the Pegassi Reaper a cursory spin between the columns of the LS Car Meet’s Test Track, see how they fare in a competitive Scramble against your peers, or floor it and race against the clock in Time Trials — all at no personal cost.

On The Diamond Casino Podium: The Pfister Comet Safari
Gently park your car on top of the valet outside of The Diamond Casino & Resort and make your way to the Lucky Wheel in the lobby to spin and potentially win the camouflaged Pfister Comet Safari whirling atop the podium, beckoning to be taken off the beaten path and go mud-running in the hills of Blaine County.
