What's new in the September 8 GTA Online weekly update?

Like clockwork, Rockstar Games dropped the latest GTA Online update just before the start of the weekend.

The Sprunk vs eCola event is still raging on and it looks like the red side is winning.

GTA received a wide selection of new changes, features, and updates. But, because we're in the middle of the Sprunk vs eCola event, the majority of all the incoming stuff will continue the fizzy drink theme. This is good news if you're a fan of the color red as a fleet of eCola-themed prizes were added to GTA Online, which makes you wonder if the contest is over already now that Rockstar has acknowledged that eCola is in the lead.

It will be interesting to see just how GTA Online players who are Team Sprunk can catch up with only one week to go.

So far, GTA Online's latest event has been a massive success. Rockstar took the idea from a couple of years back and ran away with it. GTA Online will definitely need more of these if GTA 6 isn't going to come out anytime soon. The good news is that Rockstar is receptive to fan feedback. So, we can only assume that the next "gang" event in GTA Online will be a lot better. Hopefully, Rockstar will take notes from the Gangs and Turf Wars mechanic from GTA: San Andreas. This remains the peak implementation of such a mechanic.
