Rockstar Games have rolled out a brand new update for GTA Online, which finally makes the Weevil car available to buy, adds another car to the Lucky Wheel rewards, and more.
The popular online game is always being updated, every Thursday in fact, and while the official patch notes can be released quite late in the day – leakers are usually quick to make discoveries in the game code.
That’s been the case this week, once again. TezFunz2 has had a look around and revealed some early patch notes, bringing some news on vehicle additions, and even some January reward details for Prime Gaming subscribers.
So, let’s jump into the patch notes.
GTA Online update patch notes: January 7
The vehicle added to the GTA Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel rewards for this weekly update is the Paragon R.
This car, manufactured by Enus, is an armored luxury coupe and sells for around $900,000 if you purchase it in-game. Now, though, it can be scooped for free by using your free spin of the Casino game.
The Weevil is now available to purchase in-game, and is worth $870,000. Previously, it was removed from the online store but has now returned with this update.
It can be bought at Southern S.A. Super Autos, though it has been a bonus reward in the past.
Prime Gaming rewards: Free Kosatka Sonar Station
There’s a new set of GTA Twitch Prime Gaming rewards as well, offering quite a substantial upgrade on December’s offering.
