Rockstar Games have released a new GTA Online weekly update on August 5. The changes include a new Podium vehicle, log-in rewards, and various limited-time discounts. So, let’s run through the patch notes.
As regular players of GTA 5 will be all too aware, there’s one big update every week in-game. This usually includes a number of login bonuses, boosted rewards for specific missions, featured races, and a few goodies thrown in there as well.

Until that time, let’s see what’s been added in the most recent GTA 5 update. We’ve got the full patch notes.
