GTA 5 Online: Los Santos Tuners Update Starts Today - "Return of Car Culture"

GTA 5 Online: Los Santos Tuners Update Starts Today - Return of Car Culture

GTA 5 Online

Today is the big summer update for GTA 5 Online. Rockstar Games has not given a specific time for Los Santos Tuners. However, if the developers do not deviate from the known release rhythm, the patch should be available as a download around 11 a.m. - this is also suspected by the players who have already set up a countdown to the new update. With the update, an underground car scene is establishing itself in Los Santos. With LS Car Meet you can expect a new meeting point to drive races, present tuned masterpieces or to make contacts with dubious business partners. You can find the hub in a warehouse sprayed with graffiti.

There you also get access to the test track, where you can put your vehicles through their paces. For a fee of 50,000 GTA dollars, you can secure a membership in the LS Car Meet - and thus additional privileges. You take part in prize vehicle challenges to win special prize vehicles. You also get access to some special shops and features such as the merch shop, the tattoo studio and the tuning area. Of course, there are also new races for GTA 5 Online. In Spurts, for example, up to four players have to pass 20 control points, while you race on the test track in a time trial. In the city, on the other hand, you make the street racing and the pursuit series.

GTA Online gets a big update with combat-free Los Santos Tuners social space

All the sessions from Transform 2021 are available on-demand now. Watch now.

Rockstar Games has been churning out the updates for Grand Theft Auto Online since 2013, but now and then we get a hefty update. And that’s the case with the Los Santos Tuners update available as a free download today.

Rockstar said it is adding a bunch of highly requested features, including a weapons-free social space for players to congregate in and mod or test their cars. They’re also getting a bunch of modifiable vehicles.

This sort of update is one of maybe two major updates per year that Rockstar does to keep fans coming back to the game. It also comes after several significant announcements. In June, Rockstar said that the game’s servers for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will shut down on December 16, and microtransactions will become unavailable for those platforms on September 15, and Social Club tracking will close on September 16.

On the other hand, GTA Online will debut for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles on November 11, and it will be free on the PS5 for three months. And earlier this year, Rockstar used a tip from a user named t0st, who found a way to reduce the loading times of GTA Online by up to 70%. Rockstar used the patch in its March update and paid the user a $10,000 award from its bug bounty program.

Michael Pachter, an analyst at Wedbush Securities, estimates that GTA Online generates $500 million in revenue a year for Rockstar Games and its parent company Take-Two Interactive. GTA Online is free for players who have purchased a copy of Grand Theft Auto V, and GTA Online generates additional revenue through players who buy optional digital items via microtransactions. The game is also hitting record numbers of active players each quarter.

Los Santos Tuners is for the fans who appreciate car culture. It gives players a chance to hang out together at the LS Car Meet, an underground meet-up spot hidden in plain sight in an abandoned warehouse at the edges of Cypress Flats. And yes, it’s a place where peace is breaking out in the otherwise violent world of urban combat. You might say this is very metaverse-like.

Expanding the notion of GTA Online’s existing social spaces, the LS Car Meet is a combat-free area where players can come together and share their love of cars, offering players one of the community’s most highly requested features: a dedicated area to safely show off their customized vehicles and admire others’ personal vehicle styles, mod their car or watch others mod theirs in real time, test new cars with friends on a private Test Track, and more. Up to 30 players can meet in the space at once.

The LS Car Meet itself is operated by Mimi, the de facto ambassador for LS car customization who will help new Car Meet Members learn about the space, jumpstarting their Car Meet Rep and giving them access to a host of membership rewards, discounts, and additional features — including access to the new underground Test Track to try out new vehicles, Test Ride unreleased vehicles, flex in the Prize Ride Challenge, mod vehicles with friends, or hit the streets for the new Pursuit and Street Races.

In addition to the LS Car Meet, 6 new race types, Auto Shop, and multi-part Contracts, players will also have the ability to collect brand-new music to add to the in-car radio dial by locating Media Sticks around Los Santos, including the new “Kenny’s Backyard Boogie Mix,” which features new and exclusive Moodymann tracks featuring collaborations with Channel Tres, Nez and Jessie Johnson from Prince’s former band, The Time, and a special new DJ mix, “CLR Launch Party”, from CircoLoco Records featured artist, Seth Troxler. Plus, players will now have the chance to customize their Radio Wheel, favoriting stations alongside the creation of their own by way of the Media Sticks.

Los Santos Tuners also features new in-game apparel from the real-world brand Born x Raised, a Los Angeles-based label that celebrates the heritage of street culture in Los Angeles, in a brand-new collaboration with Rockstar Games.

And coming this Fall, the launch of Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S will bring new top speed boosts to select vehicles, including new versions of the Grand Theft Auto III classic, the Bravado Banshee, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of GTA III.
