After Red Dead Online recently received a major summer update, it is now GTA Online’s turn from Rockstar Games. Next week there will be a lot of fresh, long-running content in “Los Santos Tuners”.
From July 20th, Rockstar Games will provide the next big update for the long-standing successful title GTA Online with “Los Santos Tuners”. The focus is on the underground car scene of Los Santos and its roaring engines.
In the context of the big update, you get a whole lot of action-packed tuner missions and corresponding races at your fingertips. In addition, LS Car Meet has implemented a completely new meeting point where you can romp around with your vehicle and other cars to drive races or show tuned masterpieces. Contacts with dubious business partners can also be made here.
To get started, head to a nondescript, graffiti-sprayed warehouse on the outskirts of town; Engine noises give you the last crucial clue. Then you have to unlock a new reputation progression, which gives you new benefits with each level. You also get access to the test track, a large area in the Car Meet warehouse. Here you can drive, drift and jump with your friends without being disturbed by annoying pedestrians or the police. You will also find test vehicles on the test track; here you can easily get behind the wheel of a rotating selection of vehicles.
If you put 50,000 GTA $ on the table to become a member of the LS Car Meet, you will receive further privileges, including prize vehicle challenges, access to special shops and features such as the merch shop, the tattoo studio or the tuning area and more.
As mentioned, new races inside and outside the Car Meet will also take place. In spurts, up to four players have to pass 20 checkpoints, in time trials you can go on the hunt for records on the test track. Apart from that, there is a new street racing series as well as a pursuit series in the city.
Since the tuning scene lives from reputation, you can earn this valuable currency in the course of the game by participating in races, winning them or just getting daily login bonuses. By increasing your reputation, you will receive rewards to improve your status in the scene. For example, you unlock all kinds of new modification options such as new tires and paintwork. And: Of course there are also a number of new vehicles with the update: from imported tuner cars from Annis, Dinka, Übermacht and others to the honest muscle cars from Vapid, which Americans have taken so deeply into their hearts. There will be a total of 17 new vehicles over the course of the summer, ten of which will be released on July 20th.
On PS5 and Xbox Series X / S, there will be speed improvements for selected vehicles later in the year with the next-gen upgrade.
