The GTA Online June 8 weekly update patch notes are here, including a new event week, podium vehicle, and various discounts. Here’s everything you need to know about Rockstar’s newest GTA update.

As regular GTA Online players will know, Rockstar provides a new update each week, adding or switching around content. This usually includes login bonuses, boosted rewards for specific missions, featured races, and a whole lot more.

The past 12 months have been a big one for Rockstar Games and Grand Theft Auto with tons of drama and news involving GTA 6. The long-awaited sequel was revealed last year, but the game has been exposed, presumably, well ahead of time with a huge leak. Rockstar has since confirmed the leaked footage to be genuine, and the hacker has been arrested.

We’re still waiting for more info on that front and the GTA Online follow-up, but until that time, let’s see what’s been added in the most recent GTA 5 update on June 8, 2023.

These are the full patch notes.

New GTA Online event week & bonuses

That event has come to an end, but we now have a new event week focused on pilot and aerial jobs like Air Force Zero, Air Quota, and Drop Zone. There are also a few plane-themed free log-in rewards, but we’ll have more on that later.
