"Get ready to drop some sea shells with all new vehicles, weaponry and a load of new Jobs that are coming in November with the Beach Bum Pack."

 

Thank you to everyone for joining in GTA Online throughout this first month of its release, for all of your awesome Online Snapmatic pics and Crew videos that we’ve spotted, for your patience and understanding as we’ve been working through the initial teething issues of launching an online experience like this, and for your excellent feedback to the official [email protected] email address. Please keep it coming as it is really helping us plan for the future of the game. Here’s a quick update for all Grand Theft Auto Online players worldwide on what’s in store in the immediate future.

 

THE GTA$ STIMULUS PACKAGE

We know many of you are anxiously waiting for us to show you the GTA$ Stimulus Package money we announced a couple weeks back. As mentioned in that post, we of course want to ensure that game progress loss issues are sufficiently sorted before distributing the GTA$ to everyone. We have a few more tweaks and fixes to make in a new title update that will hit sometime next week and then we will distribute the cash.

 

THE BEACH BUM PACK

Coming in early November will be the first add-on content update, the Beach Bum Pack which will bring all-new beach themed vehicles and new weaponry that you’ll be able to use in both GTA Online and Story Mode. Plus new customization options for your GTA Online character including new tats, hairstyles and more. We’ll also be adding lots of brand new action-packed Jobs to play with Gang Attacks, Survivals, Last Team Standings, Parachutes, Deathmatches and Races that will have you bloodying up the waters and coastlines of the finest beach resorts across Los Santos and Blaine County.

 

THE CONTENT CREATOR

We are also working to bring you the debut of the first part of the GTA Online Content Creator this fall – giving players the ability to craft, publish, rate and play custom-made Deathmatch and Race Jobs. We’ll be keeping our eye open for exceptional ones that we’ll be stamping as ‘Rockstar Verified’ and will be featuring them here at the Newswire and as part of forthcoming GTA Online Social Club Events. Both the Content Creator and the Beach Bum Pack are free.

 

SOCIAL CLUB EVENT WEEKENDS

Starting in November will be the first Grand Theft Auto Online Social Club Event weekends which will bring special rewards and bonuses ranging from limited-edition in-game Event Crate Drops to in-game discount specials and even a special new GTA Online live-stream show hosted by Rockstar at the Social Club Events page and Rockstar Games Twitch page – plus prize pack giveaways of hard to find GTAV gear and more.

 

Stay tuned as we hope to have more information with more details and specific timings on these content updates as well as on GTA Online Heists and the new GTA Online Capture the Flag mode to share with you next week. We will also have initial details on more additional content coming for both Story Mode and GTA Online in the next few weeks.

Add a huge garage for each character and I will pay for it. I want them to have car collections after making a billion off stocks.

Just port some MP features to SP and you've improved the game ten fold.

geez, a lot of you guys sound like such spoiled little nancy's. This "game" cost $60. Its beautifully detailed, ton's of content, some areas are cutting edge. Sure it has some issues, all software has issues that take time to iron out. Rockstar has worked their butt off to get out several patches in less than three weeks. This is almost unheard of.

 

Enjoy the game. sheesh.

Seriously these people need to have experienced Atari and the clustercusses Test Drive Unlimited one and two were and how Atari/Eden blew it all. The website, the AOL site, how the games were supposed to sink with the sites for photo sharing, never worked. Just a complete mess. Atari for the problems they had actually gave you cars, but you had to win them in racing games that were in some forms completely impossible. 

 

Talk about cheating the player. If there was a need for a book on the subject Atari/Eden could write it. 

 

I take that experience and with it can accept everything that R* is at least trying to fix here. Atari/Eden tossed and walked away from everything and everyone.

Stay tuned as we hope to have more information we say hope but if were being honest were just gunna dick you arround for a few more months with more details and vague timings on these content updates as well as on GTA Online Heists and the new GTA Online Capture the Flag mode to share with you 3 weeks from next week. We will also have initial details on more additional content coming for both Story Mode and GTA Online in the next few months.

They seem to spend more time talking about making these updates, and less time actually working on them/releasing any. So bored of all these "Soon..." posts. Next gen is just around the corner. It's now or never.

Why don't you people understand that the ones running the newswire don't actually Work on patching the game?

Also, the reason the stimulus package gets delayed is totally valid. Would you rather have it now and risk loosing the money you get for free, and then have Rockstar say "well you wanted it now so tough luck!" I didn't think so.

 

I'm certain the Rockstar Games Programmers are working their asses of trying to fix all of the problems. And remember, the game has already had 3 (or was it 4) updates in just one month. I haven't seen many other developers working that hard and quickly.

 

Just relax. We have the game, it works and it's great fun... why not play it instead of spending time moaning on a forum, eh. ;)

The beach bum pack sounds great.

 

It might be wishful thinking but maybe some new songs for the radio will come in one of these free packs.

I understand where you are coming from, I just gotta see what they have to offer I guess. What specific add on vehicles and weapons are to come in this DLC, hence that this is free or I must be blind or have read the OP wrong.
