Rockstar Games have released the latest content update for GTA Online, which lets players at the Diamond Casino spin for a unique vehicle, earn double cash and experience on a myriad of activities, and take advantage of numerous discounts with Twitch Prime.

While headlines about rumors and leaks surrounding GTA 6 continue to dominate games media, Rockstar are quietly working away on delivering more free content to its GTA Online player-base.

In the form of weekly updates, the developers deliver fresh content on a regular basis, giving players new vehicles and items, rewards, and new ways to build their vast criminal empire.

In their January 30 update, Rockstar added a unique vehicle to its Lucky Wheel spin, doubled the rewards for multiple activities and games, and implemented discounts on vehicles and properties, with extra discounts available for Twitch Prime members.

New Lucky Wheel bike: Pegassi Oppressor

Have you ever been driving around Los Santos in GTA Online only to see a motorcycle fly above you at breakneck speed? Well, Rockstar is giving the Diamond Casino patrons a chance to win the Oppressor for themselves.

The flying bike from Pegassi is now available as a Lucky Wheel reward. Players get only one spin per day, but even if you don’t get the bike, you can still win cash, RP, clothing, or something else.

The Oppressor was introduced in the Gunrunning update, and is available for purchase from the Warstock Cache & Carry for a cool $3.5 million.

That drops to $2.65 million if you’ve completed the mission Work Dispute, which requires the Mobile Operations Center, so the Oppressor is going to cost a lot even with the discount.

It comes with a front-mounted Machine gun, but that can be upgraded to Rockets with the vehicle workshop inside a Mobile Operations Center or the Mammoth Avenger plane. That workshop is necessary to make any upgrade to the bike.

Double rewards for multiple activities

More cash, experience, and Rockstar Points for completing activities? Sounds like a good deal.

Rockstar have doubled their rewards in the past, but this update is unique in regards to the sheer volume of activities that are getting 2x the payout.

Target Assault Races are getting double payouts for the next week, Motor Wars and the Tron-themed Deadline activities are getting double GTA$ and RP, and all VIP/CEO Work and Challenges are paying double as well.

Pixel Pete’s Arcade is one of many new Arcades in GTA Online.

In addition, Twitch Prime members who’ve connected their accounts also get extra deals. They can acquire Pixel Pete’s Aracade property in Paleto for free via a rebate, but it’s worth pointing out that Pixel Pete’s is still available for free without the rebate on the Twitch Prime loot page. The Arcade is necessary for the Diamond Casino heist.

Prime users also get 80% off the Buckingham Pyro and the Rhino Tank, and an additional 10% off the list of vehicles above.

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.

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.

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.
