Grand Theft Auto 5 Update Adds New Vehicles and Races

By | 3 months ago 

The developers at Rockstar Games provide a fresh update for the open world title Grand Theft Auto 5, which adds several new vehicles and races to the game.

Following Grand Theft Auto 5‘s release of the Cunning Stunts DLC for its multiplayer mode in Grand Theft Auto Online, Rockstar Games has decided to add even more stunt cars and wild races into the game’s latest add-on. As a matter of fact, today’s update for Grand Theft Auto 5 brings three brand new vehicles and six different styles of races for the game.

For those unaware, the latest races for Grand Theft Auto Online‘s Cunning Stunts mode are made for all kinds of vehicles, so whether it’s bikes or cars, fans ought to be able to find a challenge that suits their mood. As is to be expected, each of the trials reflects the DLC’s over-the-top themes, with players being given the opportunity to race through death-defying environments that include fireworks, flaming rings, and more.

There are three different races for bikes in the Grand Theft Auto 5 update, and they are called Afterburner, Forest, and High Flier. Fans looking for activities driven more toward cars, however, can check out Double Loop, Trench II, and Zebra, with the first providing “a gravity-defying loop-the-loop over Fort Zancudo” for super cars, the second offering a muscle car stunt race, and the third being a point to point stunt race for sports vehicles. Grand Theft Auto 5 players can get a small taste of what’s to come before downloading the update with the gallery below.





Joining the roster of new stunt vehicles following last week’s releases in Grand Theft Auto 5, the Ocelot Lynx, Declasse Drift Tampa, and Western Cliffhanger all make their way into the game, and each of them can be bought from Legendary Motorsport. Not to mention, Rockstar Games has officially launched the latest sale and promotional period for GTA Online items in order to support Cunning Stunts. With this being the case, now through July 25, players can get the Silver jumpsuit and its matching helmet seen in the image above for free upon log in, and there will be 20% off all cosmetic car mods, garages, and properties.

Although Grand Theft Auto Online is free to play within GTA 5, attaching in-game purchases to updates like Cunning Stunts has netted Rockstar Games a huge amount of money. For instance, several months ago, the company announced it had made roughly half a billion dollars with the open world title’s multiplayer mode, and the most recent objects to buy in the game ought to push those profit margins even higher.

Nevertheless, even though GTA Online is generating a lot of revenue for Rockstar Games, the CEO of the studio’s parent company at Take-Two Interactive has stated that the mode isn’t a permanent fixture of the title and will be rested when it seems necessary. Taking that into consideration, most Grand Theft Auto 5 fans are almost certainly in agreement that the action-adventure title could always stand to receive even more updates for its online component, but should GTA Online take a break, it could give developers a better chance to focus more intently on the long-awaited story DLC, or on GTA 6, which is reportedly in development now.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
