Rockstar Games have released a new GTA Online weekly update on February 25. The changes include the Tyrant as the new Podium vehicle, Peyote Plants are now available, 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.


2021 is going to be a big year in terms of new content as well. Rockstar has already confirmed plans to roll out a GTA Online next-gen version, with a whole host of never-before-seen stuff. However, that’s all a waiting game.

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