I am the mother of your children. Whither can I fly, since all Greece hates the barbarian? - Euripides, Microsoft Medea Center
GAMES DEVELOPER Rockstar has added a Business update to its Grand Theft Auto Online experience, adding new vehicles and weapons.
Available for download now on Playstation and Xbox games consoles, the GTA Online update brings in three new cars, the Albany Alpha, Dinka Jester and Grotti Turismo R, with new horn sounds and "wheel smoke options".
Cars are not the only additions in the update and players are also getting access to a luxury jet, according to the firm. The Vestra plane is available through Elitas, the in-game travel outfit. Since most of the game is about separating people from the habit of breathing, two "high powered weapons" are on the Ammu Nation store racks, while gentlemen's outfitters now carry "high end attire" like suits and hats.
The new vehicles and weapons are also available in Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) story mode, while back in the Online option 14 jobs have been added to the in-game list of things to do, including land and air races and a couple of death matches.
This weekend the firm will play host to another Social Club event, which promises punters exclusive fun and a competition.
"This week's update to GTA Online also includes a host of additional updates and fixes, including the ability to disable Slipstreaming in Races, the addition of Barber Shop and Tattoo Parlour locations to the Quick GPS and a number of other exploit and stability fixes," it explained.
One issue is mentioned under the original post, one that relates to an increasingly errant downloadable gun. Rockstar said, "For those that are experiencing issues with the Gusenberg Sweeper being removed from their inventory, we are aware of the issue and working to resolve it for all affected players."
Rockstar is having a good year and has already given GTA a Valentines themed update. This week we also learned that Rockstar's titles have earned it a Bafta fellowship.
Meanwhile, Portugese retailer Worten is taking pre-orders for an upcoming Playstation 4 (PS4) version of the game. µ
