Rockstar Games has finally announced the upcoming GTA Online update in a Newswire post titled “Coming This Summer: A New Brand of Vigilante Justice.” The title hints at the new missions, where you'll be running your own bail enforcement and bounty hunting business.

“Get behind the wheel of your souped-up Cruiser and conduct a range of off-the-books enforcement activities across Los Santos,” according to Rockstars. This means you would be carrying out some clandestine Dispatch Work for Vincent Effenburger.

New vehicles

As usual, new vehicles will be available for purchase. Although no other cars have been confirmed, Rockstar has reiterated that the previously announced Överflöd Pipistrello supercar will be free for all GTA+ Members on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Creator additions

As anticipated, Rockstar will introduce Drift Races and Drag Races to the creator mode, allowing fans to design their own events. Additionally, new props and units will be available for all tracks, including features like "drivers doing donuts, bouncing lowriders, crowd animations, and more," according to the post.

Enhancements are also being made to the creation tools for deathmatches, races, and more. To streamline race creation, Rockstar will now let you launch tests from any chosen checkpoint and include the option to run multiple rounds in Drag Races before declaring a winner, along with several other improvements.

Further, payouts for certain modes will be increased, including Open Wheel Races, Taxi Work, Operation Paper Trail, and more.

All snacks will now automatically replenish when starting most missions, ensuring you can regenerate health even if you forgot to stock up on Sprunk.
