Just last week, Rockstar Games announced that a sizeable new expansion is on the way for Grand Theft Auto Online known as the Gunrunning update, and now the developer has provided even more details regarding the game’s next DLC. Although the studio went into greater depths describing the forthcoming piece of content, it fell short of announcing an exact time that fans can expect Gunrunning to go live.
Starting with Bunkers, Rockstar Games explained that it would be adding huge underground areas that will be at the center and main hub of every Grand Theft Auto Online player’s enterprise in the forthcoming update. Bunkers will allow aspiring Gunrunning kingpins to store things such as a Mobile Operations Center–a vehicle with a modular design that can include living quarters and weapon/vehicle workshops–that lets players upgrade and customize vehicles to add such items as turrets to make them more deadly.
In addition to these aspects, Grand Theft Auto Online‘s Gunrunning update will also bring about a brand new class of cars to stock and customize called Weaponized Vehicles. Players will be able to “build a fleet to cover every eventuality” with new vehicles such as the amphibious, cannon-equipped APC, as well as a mobile anti-aircraft carrier that will take care of any pesky airborne threats. The Weaponized Vehicle class can also be utilized as a safe means of cargo transportation.
Furthermore, Grand Theft Auto Online‘s Gunrunning update allows players to command their own bunker staff to conduct research to unlock a varying range of different optional upgrades including unique personal weapon modifications, fearsome weaponry for the Weaponized Vehicles class, and upgrades for the Mobile Operations Center that will pack a mighty punch. GTA Online fans can get a decent glimpse of all the aforementioned aspects to come in the above gallery.
Taking all of this into consideration, with updates like Gunrunning constantly adding more experiences to GTA Online it’s obvious Rockstar Games knows how to keep fans coming back for more while also bringing new players into the fold. After all, it was recently revealed that Grand Theft Auto 5 is now the best-selling game in America since The NPD Group first began tracking sales in 1995.
Grand Theft Auto Online is available now through Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
