GTA Online: What to Expect When the New Update Arrives

Are you ready for the changes next week? Rockstar Games

Next week, a major update is coming to GTA Online and it will introduce new missions, new vehicles, and new events. Players can also expect online experience improvements, alongside experiential updates and upgrades on all platforms.
