While GTA Online is the epicenter of success for Rockstar Games capitalizing since 2013, the multiplayer component has lacked the addition of a new major update since the release of the Cayo Perico Heist back in December late last year. However, the developer did expand on its plans to experiment more with future updates. Speaking with GQ Magazine, the team said that it is aiming for more single-player experiences for the online version of Grand Theft Auto V.

The pursuit is said to compensate the lack of story mode DLC which is already confirmed to not ever arrive to the base story campaign. Elsewhere, GTA Online is going free-to-play officially in the latter parts of 2021. In a recent update for the PlayStation 5/Xbox Series X|S versions for Grand Theft Auto V coming in November, Rockstar Games explains GTA Online is free for the first three months on PlayStation before hitting other platforms.

In an abrupt announcement on Thursday, Rockstar Games reveals a new update for GTA Online, the Los Santos Tuners Update. You can watch the brief trailer in the video below:

“The underground tuner scene in Los Santos roars to life with the launch of GTA Online: Los Santos Tuners,” the team explains. “In addition to a ton of action-packed, Tuner-based missions and races, this update introduces the LS Car Meet, a gigantic, shared social space where you and your cherished personal vehicle can mingle freely with fellow car fans to race, show off your customized vehicles, and even link up with shady contacts looking for skilled drivers and a chance at easy money.”

Of course, there will be new opportunities to earn money, gain respect online, and dabble with new vehicles that are added specifically for the approaching update. Rockstar Games still is not finished with more details to be revealed soon, it writes. “Stay tuned for more details on Los Santos Tuners at the Newswire next week — specifically a look at Contracts for new robberies where you’ll put your driving skills to the ultimate test alongside a familiar face from The Music Locker.”

Previously, Rockstar Games confirmed that the GTA Online servers for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are to come to a close later this year. However, those playing on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC have nothing to worry about. You can read the full report by heading here.
