Rockstar Games is adding a shed load of content with the GTA Online Summer Update and we’ve got everything you need to know about it. 

The game developers have been building up the hype for the latest Summer Update in GTA Online for quite some time now. New heists have been mentioned, fresh vehicles, and a ton of never-before-seen missions were expected. Rockstar previously confirmed a few of these things with an announcement full of hints.

Now, way before official patch notes have been revealed, Grand Theftt Auto’s most prominent leaker has beat them to the punch. TezFunz2, who reveals almost everything before it happens in-game, has also spilled the beans on the next content update.

And it’s a big one.

GTA Online Summer Special update patch notes

Summer Update size

The update will reportedly be around 2GB for Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PC players.

There’s a lot packed into the patch as well, so let’s run through the patch notes we know about so far.

New Super Yacht co-op missions

Yacht in GTA
Rockstar Games
If you own a Super Yacht in GTA Online, you’re going to have a great summer.

An all-new set of missions will be available, but only if you own a Galaxy Super Yacht. The missions will launch from your floating apartment complex and can be done solo or with up to three friends.

Everything from deep-sea diving to “high-speed hijinks on the high seas” has been teased by Rockstar, and we can’t wait to jump in and see what they’re all about.

Business Battles & Adversary Modes

Rockstar Games
A new crop of Adversary Modes will be available at the Diamond Casino with the Summer Update.

Several new Business Battles are being added as well, offering some serious rewards in “surprising places.” Exactly what is being added remains to be seen, but at least we’ll have a way to make some money and save up for a Super Yacht of our own now.

There will also be a jackpot of new Adversary Modes for players to face off against one another in at Diamond Casino following the update, in case you need a break from all the new missions.

New Vehicles & Open Wheel races

Rides for Benny to customize, off-roaders, tunable sports cars, and a pair of new Open Wheel models like in the image above were all previously confirmed. Now, following several leaks, we know that there will be 15 new cars headed to the game.

These include the following:

GTA Online Black Friday update: Huge sales, Open Wheel bonuses, more

Rockstar Games have got a Grand Theft Auto Online update that plays into Black Friday with a whole host of sales for vehicles, businesses, and buildings. 

GTA Online’s weekly updates are always something to look forward to for fans, as Rockstar Games rolls out some bonuses so that players can build up their Maze Bank accounts. 

The bonuses, both for cash and RP, are the big attention grabbers from the updates, but the sales that Rockstar also drops are nothing to be ignored either. You can save quite a lot on a car that you want or a business you want to own. 

With Black Friday getting underway in the real world – marking a few days of sales – Rockstar have also joined in the fun with some pretty interesting discounts as well. 

Open Wheel races bonuses – 2x Cash & RP

As already noted, the bonuses are the biggest part of the weekly updates, so we’ll start there. This week, starting November 26, is all about Open Wheel Races for double rewards while King of the Hill pays out triple. 

The bonuses for Open Wheel races are not limited to one or two select tracks, but you will have to jump into a Rockstar Created race to earn the bonus. The best way to check this is to simply join a race from the pink F1 car icons that are dotted around the map.

If a lobby then decides to vote for a non-Rockstar Created race, simply back out and find a different lobby. You’ll have up to December 9th to earn the bonus rewards.
