Other Title Update Notes

New Content – PS4, Xbox One and PC only

  • The Maze Bank Arena property has been added to GTA Online.
  • The Arena War Series has been added to GTA Online and can be accessed via the triggers in GTA Online Freemode or the Pause Menu
  • The Arena allows players to participate in the following Arena War Modes which are new vehicular based game types set inside the Arena:
    • Carnage (2-16 Players)
      • There’s no need to overcomplicate things: Americans have always known how to have good, old fashioned, rats-in-a-sack, murder-orgy fun. All we need to do is provide a fresh and unpredictable set of tools, roll the cameras, and get the hell out of the way. No mercy, no disqualification, no safe word.
    • Flag War (2-16 Players)
      • Two teams, two flags, one objective: what’s yours is mine, and what’s mine stays mine. The classic capture the flag formula reworked Arena War style to include enough gasoline-chugging violence to appeal to a mainstream audience.
    • Wreck It (2-16 Players)
      • It’s theoretically possible to win a round of Wreck It by crossing the line first in a fair-and-square lap race. But don’t worry: that’s never happened, because the alternative is coasting across the line after you’ve reduced any serious competition to heaps of smoldering scrap metal. Like the old saying goes, if it’s not a race to the death, you’re just not taking it seriously enough.
    • Tag Team (2-16 Players)
      • Arena War isn’t all about ruthless individualism. Sometime there really is safety in numbers - and in Tag Team you’re going to need it. Each team has one player in the Arena at a time, and their only objective is to immolate the opposition. If you’re taking heavy fire you can tag in one of your teammates, but remember, this only ends one way - and it’s you or them.
    • Games Masters (2-16 Players)
      • When it comes to brutal Arena designs, you can install the most exquisitely hazardous death traps on the market, but there’s just no substitute for the sheer ingenuity and sadism of a properly incentivized human being. One team collects checkpoints, the other uses every fiendish tool at the Arena’s disposal to make their plans go up in smoke. And be sure to hold onto your grudges: after every round, you switch places.
    • Here Come the Monsters (2-16 Players)
      • Say what you like about gladiatorial fights to the death as a form of mass entertainment – they’ve got no hangups about being fair. One team takes to the Arena in monster trucks capable of crushing metal and bone into the same bloody dust. The other guys get compact cars and a dose of anxiety meds – but if even one of them survives, they win. Let the games begin.
    • Hot Bomb (2-16 Players)
      • Life isn’t about holding onto good things, it’s about passing them on. Like inherited wealth, or a sense of entitlement. Or a high-explosive device. In Hot Bomb, one player has the bomb, and the only way to get rid of it is by crashing into someone else. Throw in a timer and a baying crowd, and survival of the fittest just got an upgrade.
    • Buzzer Beater (added on December 18, 2018)
      • A fast-paced race against the clock and every other lunatic in a rider’s seat where your countdown ends with a serious bang. With a looming countdown ticking ever-closer towards your explosive demise, collect checkpoints strewn across the Maze Bank Arena to add precious seconds to your lifespan. Outlast the other weasels who dare to challenge your crown and be the last rider left alive to claim victory.
    • Bomb Ball (added on December 25, 2018)
      • Let’s face it: although you can get behind the naked aggression and anarchic mob-rule, you’ve never understood the rules of soccer. Well, Bomb Ball gets rid of all those fussy technicalities and restrictions on violence, and boils things down to the real heart of the matter: shoving enormous explosive devices in to the other team’s half before they go off. Welcome to the beautiful game.

  • [April 25, 2019] New Simeon Yetarian Premium Deluxe Repo Work assignments have been added to GTA Online:
    • Under the Hammer
      • Simeon's received word that the La Mesa Police are hosting an auction of illicitly-acquired vehicles. They're already hot, so stealing them again is probably a victimless crime, right? Boost the vehicles for your favorite Armenian auto dealer and receive a handsome reward for your efforts.
    • Blow Up IV
      • There's a rival trader in town undercutting Simeon's prices. But Mr. Yetarian always has an Ace up his sleeve - this particular Ace works at the competition's warehouse and has "forgotten" to lock up for the evening. Head over to where the cars are stashed and convert them into junk metal for a tidy sum.
    • Sasquashed
      • There's an Arena War show happening outside the Maze Bank Arena. Simeon needs you to steal those monster trucks for him, then pay a visit to a couple of old friends.
    • GTA Today II
      • Simeon has a client with a very specific wish list - but he can only leave international waters for so long. At short notice, he requires a skilled team to resort to some assertive repossession techniques. Repo high-end vehicles around Los Santos and deliver them to the docks before the client ships out.
    • Do You Even Lift?
      • During a recent stroll through Rockford Hills, Simeon spotted some very beautiful cars outside some very empty second mansions. An unscrupulous person could airlift them right out without triggering the alarm. Acquire a Cargobob and rescue these poor vehicles from a lifetime of neglect.
    • RV Nearly There?
      • When a limited edition MTL Brickade RV goes missing during transit to Los Santos, Simeon hears about it. And when a filthy little tin can dealership in Sandy Shores mysteriously acquires just such an RV, he hears about that too. Go there and acquire this beautiful vehicle by any means necessary.
    • Burn Rate
      • Thanks to the petty vindictiveness of his competition, Simeon's latest shipment is going up in smoke. In order to avoid any unwanted attention from the authorities he's not calling 911 - he's calling you. Acquire yourself a fire truck and extinguish the fires as well as any lingering arsonists.
    • Simeonomics
      • A local international businessman is selling some luxury cars to a foreign buyer -- off the books, of course. The cars are set to leave town in the back of a privately chartered cargo plane. That's where you come in: intercept the shipment at LSIA, escape from the cops, get the vehicles to a safe location. Simeon will handle the rest.
