Stunning sets of wheels have made it onto the GTA Online Diamond Casino podium in the past and that trend continues with another weekly update, as the Cyclone has arrived. 

Members of the community might be looking forward to seeing what the developers have in store for their next game, GTA 6, even if things haven’t been officially announced yet. However, the continued success of GTA 5 is very much down to new content – which arrives on a weekly basis.


In the past, we’ve seen new cars made available to buy, fresh vehicles land in the Lucky Wheel rewards, and in-game events take off – as seen recently with the return of the Peyote Plant.

But, what’s in store this time? Let’s take a look at everything new from the May 7 update…


GTA Online May 4 update: Patch notes

Cyclone added to Casino podium

Rockstar Games
The Cyclone is now available to win on the Lucky Wheel, for a limited time.

Don’t be shocked to see a brand new vehicle parked inside the Diamond Casino, because the Coil Cyclone has arrived!

The vehicle will be available to win as part of the gambling center’s daily Lucky Wheel game, of which each player is given one chance to win the grand prize. On this occasion, it’s worth a staggering $1,890,000 – but you could win it for free, with a slice of luck.

Races, Time Trials and double rewards

Rockstar Games
Taking Off is back in GTA Online, for a limited time.

Those interested in the ever-changing world of racing and Time Trials in-game will be glad to know that three are included in this content update.


These include a Premium Race called Taking Off, a Time Trial called Coast to Coast, and this week’s RC Time Trial is Vespucci Canals.

Aside from that, players can receive double cash and RP rewards on biker businesses, MC contracts, and Transform races – according to reliable GTA leaker Tez2.

New alien content

Rovkstar Games
Alien suits might be about to become a whole lot more common.

If you have been running around dressed as an alien in GTA Online, fear not, you aren’t alone.


In fact, there might be a lot more joining you in the next week or so as two new outfits are free to pick up – a Purple Martian Bodysuit and Green Martian Bodysuit are now free. There’s also going to be a pool cue made available, free of charge, at Ammu-Nation.


Rockstar Games
The Shotaro is on sale now!

A number of prices have been slashed as well, as seen in the list below. Twitch Prime members will, as always, get an additional 10% off the following purchases:

  • Master Control Terminal (30% Off)
  • Shotaro (40% Off)
  • Tempesta (40% Off)
  • Toros (35% Off )
  • Lectro (35% Off)
  • Krieger (30% Off)

So, there we have it! That’s everything we know so far about GTA Online’s May 7 update. Once Rockstar make more information available about its contents, we’ll update this article where necessary.


Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.


It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

Michael and Franklin from GTA V

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

Franklin from GTA V

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
