The video game developer Rockstar Games releases an official launch trailer for Grand Theft Auto Online‘s newest free expansion known as Import/Export.
As most Grand Theft Auto Online fans would attest, the multiplayer realm for the virtual world of Los Santos is alive and well, especially considering the fact that Rockstar Games continues to support the title with DLC such as its latest Import/Export expansion. With the free add-on now officially available, the developer has decided to give fans of the open world title a rundown of what all is included in the update by releasing a brand new launch trailer for the freshest piece of Grand Theft Auto Online content.
As seen below in Rockstar Games’ trailer for the Import/Export DLC, the expansion is basically a means to allow players to steal cars and build their criminal organizations to much larger dimensions than ever before. The size of one’s operation can expand beyond even the addition of the previously released add-on for Grand Theft Auto Online known as Further Adventures in Finance and Felony.
Grand Theft Auto Online‘s Import/Export DLC is quite the sizeable addition to the GTA landscape, as it adds a new Executive Garage that allows players to store up to 60 vehicles. As an Organization’s boss, the members of one’s crew will get a tip regarding which cars they can steal and stow away. The way this particular feature works can be seen in detail on the image of the in-game map found further below, but players are advised to “use the Ad-Hawk Autos network from your Vehicle Warehouse to connect with buyers and deliver the goods,” with “private buyers” being a solid way to increase funds. However, “Showroom and Specialist Dealers” will be those who are primed spend more money.
As fans steal more vehicles in Import/Export, missions become unlocked that let players boost “Special” vehicles. Of course, these missions won’t be easy, with gamers having to use a wide range of deadly vehicles “from the armed and the armored, to the amphibious and the airborne” to complete the tasks. These various apparatuses are stowed away in the lowest level in the warehouse, and when a mission is successfully completed, fans can get a chance to obtain eight new vehicles with the BF Ramp Buggy, JoBuilt Phantom Edge, Karin Technical Aqua, Nagasaki Blazer Aqua, Brute Armored Boxville, MTL Wastelander, Imponte Ruiner 2000, and Coil Rocket Voltic being added.
Additionally, Grand Theft Auto Online‘s Import/Export update provides new upgrades for the Principe Diablous Custom and Annis Elegy Retro Custom, and puts two new Super-class cars (the Pegassi Tempesta and Ocelot Penetrator) into the game. Not to mention, fans get a brand new Adversary mode called “Turf Wars” that will have “two to four teams” driving different cars to “compete to control tiles.” Players claim the tiles by driving over them with their team’s color, and utilizing “strategically-located rockets” for defense and assistance.
What’s more is that Grand Theft Auto Online‘s Import/Export DLC will let players customize their avatars’ appearances with what Rockstar calls “the mother of all makeovers.” Additionally, GTA Online‘s latest expansion adds new Stunt props to the Rockstar Editor’s Director mode, and gives PS4 fans the ability to form a party and join a session together.
Taking all of these new additions to Grand Theft Auto Online into account, it’s understandable as to why fans continue to spend time with the game nearly three years after its release. Plus, with Rockstar allowing these players to spend real money with microtransactions, it makes perfect sense for the developer to have made half a billion dollars when one considers the huge gamer base that’s still around for the title’s multiplayer. As one might expect, however, Rockstar is eventually going to relax support for GTA Online and give it some rest, but the content train doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.
Grand Theft Auto Online‘s Import/Export expansion is available now through Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
