[jwplayer wZHxbKhS]Rockstar Games have unveiled what appears to be the final patch before the next major event in GTA Online, and there’s quite a lot of rewards to talk about. 

The online game mode is constantly being refreshed with new content, although this update doesn’t appear to be as exciting as recent weeks. Previously, we have had everything from diamonds dropping back into the Diamond Casino Heist, to huge cash giveaways.

This week, though, there’s still a new car on the Lucky Wheel podium and various missions to complete for boosted bonuses.

New GTA Online update leak

GTA Online players can’t wait to hear more about the game’s next big heist.

Now, before we jump into the patch notes, Rockstar leaker TezFunz2 has revealed that everything included in the patch will last two weeks. After that, a new update will be released that should shake things up.

They said: “Worth noting the new event is up for two weeks, ending on Tuesday, August 11. That’s likely when we shall receive the new update.”

It’s already been confirmed that GTA Online is getting a new heist soon, and perhaps once this update has got out of the way, Rockstar will finally reveal more about the brand new location where it will be set.

Just like any other week in Los Santos, players will have the chance to rack up more rewards than usual for specific missions and races.
