Rockstar Games have dropped the latest content update for GTA Online and players can get their hands on a pretty unique vehicle, as well as some free bonuses to expand their criminal empires.

For more than six years, Grand Theft Auto fans have been returning to Los Santos and GTA Online to cause havoc in the sandbox that Rockstar Games has bestowed upon them.

To keep the players coming back, though, the developers have pumped out regular updates among their major changes just to keep things fresh. The newest update from January 23 has seen the developers release a new car and make changes to the free bonuses. So, let’s check it out.

GTA Online updates have kept players flocking back to the streets of Los Santos.

New vehicle: Nagasaki Outlaw

While many vehicles in GTA Online bare resemblance to something you’d see on the roads in real life, Rockstar has also added some pretty unique cars to the mix as well.

The newest one that fits that mold is the Nagasaki Outlaw. The new all-terrain vehicle looks like something that is perfectly equipped for attacking desert dunes and traversing huge hills, which will, undoubtedly, make it yet another fun car to use in GTA Online. 

The new car is available from the Southern San Andreas Super Autos website and will let you back $1,268,000 as a standard price, or $951,000 if you’ve completed the Diamond Casino Heist as the heist leader.

New GTA Online Casino spin wheel prize

There is also a brand-new supercar to be won from the Diamond Casino and Resort’s daily lucky spin wheel in the form of the Progen Emerus. 

The Emerus, which was added in the Diamond Casino and Resort update back in July, costs $2,750,000 to purchase from Legendary Motorsport, but getting it from the spin wheel will see players claim a unique Hexagon Blue wrap that makes it look like its come right from the TRON movies.

On top of that, there is also 60% off all Arena variants of the Bravado Sasquatch, 50% off the RC Bandito, and an extra 10% off the game-wide discounts that are going on at Ammu-Nation – as well as on some of the vehicle websites.

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.
