Welcome to the 45th week of Rockstar Central, extraordinarily late! Arthur Morgan has been imprisoned for 8 extra months.
Also more bonuses in GTA Online and a new vehicle plus a new Adversary Mode, and new Snaps featured this week!
Red Dead Redemption II has been delayed to- Remember when I fired you last week? I want to give you a raise this time. Please come back!
Red Dead Redemption II has been delayed to October 26 2018. Just like GTA V and GTA V PC, they require more time to polish the game, along with other Rockstarry things they do. On other more positive news, however, brand new breathtaking screenshots have been revealed! Check them out in this spoiler tag below!
Rockstar has promised more news in the coming weeks as well, but we shall be counting the weeks here in the Wild West.
The Pfister Neon electric sports car is now available at Legendary Motorsport! Straight from the future, in a world where electric cars and brands like Coil are trying to take the monopoly, this is the new revolution in sports cars. Get it now!
A new Adversary Mode is now available as well - Hardest Target! In Hardest Target, slaughter the other team's Target and protect your own at all costs. I wonder where I've heard this before in GTA Online. However, this one has a twist - you better watch the clock as the designated target will switch every minute! This mode has Double GTA$ and RP until the 5th of February.
Also until the 5th, criminals of Los Santos have an array of discounts available. You can earn 25% more GTA$ on Special Cargo Deliveries and a 25% boost on Gunrunning Research and Manufacturing. If you're feeling a bit... decorative, there are some other discounts available - enjoy 25% off:

Despite many questionable decisions in the past few years, some related to money and so called "greed", Rockstar has always been pretty generous when it comes to helping real world causes. From supporting people with disabilities, to supporting LGBTQ communities and even associations for sick kids, this time Rockstar is supporting the environment.
This week they have launched, along with Humble Bundle, a large bundle of most of their PC games, where ALL proceedings will go to the Rainforest Alliance - a global nonprofit organisation tackling today's urgent challenges - climate change, rural poverty, biodiversity loss, through creative and pragmatic collaborations in agriculture, forestry and tourism.
So far, over 117K bundles have been sold, which means, considering an average donation of $9, just over a million dollars (within margin of error due to smaller and bigger donations) have been donated to the Rainforest Alliance!
Check out the bundle in this Rockstar Newswire article.

In Snaps of the Week, we show off 5 of the best screenshots, in no specific order, from this week's submissions all over the forums. This can include other games, other than GTA V, but admittedly there has been a shortage of pictures from other games. Enjoy and props to all the talented photographers and their characters!
