GTA Online ILL-GOTTEN GAINS Update: Part One Now Available
2 days ago | Author: R* Q
You've done the crime - and reaped stacks upon stacks of dirty cash much to the chagrin of San Andreas' reeling financial institutions. So, what to do with your newfound wealth? Sensible low-risk investments and a quiet retirement? Live out the rest of your years comfortably but inconspicuously with an understated and respectable lifestyle?
...We didn't think so. To the victor go the spoils - and for those whose Online Heists profits are burning a raging hole in their pockets, get ready to properly ball out and become the envy of all your Snapmatic followers by flaunting your hard-earned gull-wing doored supercars, ostentatious designer vehicle wraps, solid gold aircraft and so much more.
The Ill-Gotten Gains Update: Part One for Grand Theft Auto Online is available today across all five platforms. In addition to four new high-end automobiles (the Pegassi Osiris, Albany Virgo, Benefactor Stirling GT and Enus Windsor), you can also rule the skies in a pair of new extravagant, Deluxe aircraft.
And not only have the racks at swank Rockford Hills clothiers been updated with new designer outfits, necklaces, earrings and watches - the rack at your local Ammu-Nation's got a new Personal Defense Weapon, the Combat PDW.
The newest generation of Los Santos residents can also adorn select weaponry and attachments with Luxury Engravings, while luxury aircraft will afford new generation residents the opportunity to drink champagne and smoke cigars while flying high in the Los Santos skies.
Also part of today’s automatic update, we’ve added the First Person Vehicle Hood Cam that's already on PC to the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game, along with a host of other new features and updates including redesigned, easier-to-use vehicle websites; a new ‘Friends In Session’ option within the On Call phone menu to auto-invite all your friends to a job you are on call for, and a lot more. For the complete list, check out the official notes at the Rockstar Support site. We've also added the latest GTA Online illustration featured in this past Friday's announcement and our official event weekend flyer to the collection of GTAV digital artwork in a range of desktop wallpapers, smartphone and tablet backgrounds, avatars and more.
To get the update, just start up GTAV from your online-connected console and follow the update prompts on screen.
Announcing The ILL-GOTTEN GAINS Event Weekend: Part One - June 12th-14th
3 days ago | Author: R* M
With the bank balances of Los Santos' finest criminals now firmly in the black - it's time to grab some R&R with the Ill-Gotten Gains Event Weekend: Part One, running from this Friday, June 12th through June 14th. There's a full host of in-game bonuses to get your grubby little mitts on, as well as a Social Club Sweepstakes, livestreams and much more.
DOUBLE CASH ADVERSARY MODES EVENT PLAYLIST
For the gluttonous, the miserly and everyone in-between – grab even more GTA$ this weekend when playing the Adversary Modes that were released alongside GTA Online Heists. If you haven’t yet had a chance to play these three new Modes – which require mastering tactics such as mowing over cyclists in a truck, executing sawn-off shotgun drive-bys and defending against onrushing hunters out for your head – the Double Cash rewards for all who play make it a great time to start. Don't forget to brush up on our Adversary Modes Game Tips posts to max out your winnings.
To jump straight into Double Cash Adversary Modes, simply hit the Event button during the GTAV boot screens and you'll find yourself in a lobby with other cynical mercenaries straining under the weight of their loot. If Double $$ isn't enough of an incentive, be sure to stick around 'til the end of the Playlist and you'll be rewarded with an explosive armory completion bonus including Sticky Bombs, Molotovs, Proximity Mines and Body Armor so you can blast your way to the front of the line during your next shopping spree at Ponsonby's.
DOUBLE RP RACES ON LAND, SEA AND AIR
With six new vehicles to choose from you'll want to select your new ride carefully, whether it's the mighty Pegassi Osiris, the Benefactor Stirling with gull wing doors, or the sumptuous Luxor Deluxe. Take each one for a test drive with 2X RP in all Races all weekend.
25% DISCOUNT ON HIGH-END PROPERTIES
If your accountant is finding it difficult to get creative with the source of your new earnings, it may be time to clean that dough by treating yourself to the spoils of war. Accessorize your hefty bank balance with stylish living quarters as well as garages fit for a kingpin. With a cool 25% off High-End Apartments and Garages, now's the time to upgrade to the next level of living, or increase your garage capacity so you can squeeze in a few more cars.
HIGH-FREQUENCY CRATE DROPS WITH EXCLUSIVE T-SHIRTS
In the great banquet of life, hanging around the top table there will always be bottom feeders waiting for scraps; thankfully the smugglers have got those choosy beggars covered with bounties delivered from on high throughout the weekend. Keep an eye out around the luxurious hangouts of Los Santos great and good such as the racetrack, yacht club and Rockford Hills areas for an increased frequency of Crate Drops containing GTA$10K and exclusive in-game t-shirts featuring knock off versions of Portola Drive's finest luxury retailers, as pictured below. The throwaway fashion industry dictates these t-shirts are only available this weekend in GTA Online, so be sure to keep your greedy eyes on the skies.
#illgottengains1 GTA$1M SNAPMATIC CONTEST
A fair few of your millions may have been earned through the blood, sweat and grease of completing a Heist, but there's also a tidy GTA$1Million going that you could claim with by snapping your iFruit's camera and tagging your photo on Social Club with "illgottengains1". Get camera trigger-happy and enter our Snapmatic contest to add some heavy k's to your in-game wallet. As usual we're looking for the greatest photographs of you living the high life with Ill-Gotten Gains Update content, whether you're parked up rocking one of the liveries on the Winsor Enus, or decked out wearing your cash on your sleeve in the fur and finery of the new wardrobe options.

Luxe out your life with the Social Club Event Sweepstakes, live now on the Social Club Events Page. Enter for your chance to win a lavish set of GTAV goods, including the GTA V Chrome Zippo, Grotti Polo, Epsilon Pendant, a copy of the Welcome To Los Santos album, as well as a GTA V t-shirt and stickers.
EVENT WEEKEND LIVE STREAM
If the thought of all this shopping simply tuckers you out, pull up a pew and kick back with the Official Rockstar Games Event Weekend Live Stream. On June 12th at 5pm ET the Rockstar Broadcast Studio team will be joined by special guests Funhaus to play brand new Jobs from the Ill-Gotten Gains Update: Part One along with custom meta-games featuring the new content.
