GTA Online Gets Creator Update, New Transform Races And Free Money


Rockstar is handing out free Grand Theft Auto Online currency uncharacteristically frequently these past few weeks.

Between the last time players could accumulate over a million over the course of a week and GTA$ bonuses available with pre-orders of Red Dead Redemption 2, giving away even more cash is eyebrow raising. There's also some new content in the game, as usual.

This time around Rockstar has decided to use the upcoming football World Cup as reason for their money giveaway, because... actually they don't give a reason. Your GTA Online protagonist needs beer and snacks to watch the match?

LATEST GTA NEWS CLIPS

Either way, all players who log into GTA Online until the 11th of June will receive GTA$ 250,000. It isn't much, but it's something and it's free.

This week, instead of new vehicles or Adversary Modes, the new content arrives in the form of a set of 7 new Transform Races.

The new tracks expand the range of vehicles included in the transformations and thematic races - some have you switch suddenly between particularly large and particular small vehicles, for example. All Rockstar created Transform Races yield double the usual GTA$ and RP through the 11th of June.

In addition to the new races, the Rockstar Creator has also received a long-awaited update with new props, triggers, vehicles and an increase to the prop limit. Players can also create maps for new game modes such as Target Assault, and use teleportation triggers on their tracks.

Rockstar is switching things up for sales this week.

Only three vehicles are discounted all week long, while there will be a larger selection of daily deals to be announced via social media as they happen. In total we should expect more discounted items throughout the week than usual, but now you need to be able to access GTA Online specifically when they're live.

The three vehicles discounted all the way to the 11th of June are the Nagasaki Shotaro, the Blazer Aqua and the Ocelot XA-21. All three are 30% off. Keep in mind that to unlock the Shotaro for purchase, you need to play (no win necessary) at least one round of the Deadline Adversary Mode, which we suggest you do anyway, since it's literally Tron.

Keep an eye on Rockstar's social media accounts to stay up-to-date on daily sales as they happen.
