The Business Update for GTA Online is Now Available

The wait is finally over.  The latest free content addition to the world of Grand Theft Auto Online, The Business Update, went live for download on the PSN and Xbox Live.

For those of you who like to roll around town in a ride that is the personification of high class and luxury, this update adds the Albany Alpha, Dinka Jester and Grotti Turismo R cars to the Legendary Motorsport roster.   In addition, if you subscribe to the idea that “if you’ve got it, flaunt it”, there are also new vehicle horn and wheel-smoke options available at LS Customs to give your new ride some additional flair.  Jet setters who prefer to navigate Southern San Andreas by air can hit up Elitas in-game to order the new Vestra luxury jet.  Weapon aficionados can also acquire two new high-powered weapons available at Ammu-Nation, the Heavy Pistol and Special Carbine automatic rifle.  Also offered are new ensembles of business shirts, suits, vests, skirts, hats and other high end attire.

Rockstar Games has also added 14 new Jobs to GTA Online which are inspired by the multitude of new additions in The Business Update.  These additions include four new Land Races designed specifically for the Sports and Super cars class as well as giving the player the ability to take the new Vestra airplane on a tour of the Los Santos skies in any of four new Air Races.  And don’t forget the pair of new Vehicle Deathmatches featuring the Buzzard and the Rhino Tank, plus a new Last Team Standing in Little Seoul, a 2 team Capture at Los Santos City Hall and a new Survival around the Maze Bank Tower.  To celebrate, Rockstar is holding a special Business Weekend Social Club Online Event this weekend that will feature exclusive RP and GTA$ bonuses, a new Snapmatic competition and much, much more.

RockStar is not stopping there.  The update to GTA Online will also include a host of additional updates and fixes, including the ability to disable Slipstreaming in Races, the ability to highlight your own blip during Missions and a number of other exploit and stability fixes.  To get your hands on the free update, just rev up your online-connected PS3 or Xbox 360 and load up GTAV.  You’ll immediately be prompted to download the automatic update (Xbox 360 players will also be required to download an additional compatibility pack) and from there you can head to the in-game store from the pause menu to access and download The Business Update).
