FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2014 :: Posted by bOnEs :: 0 Comments :: 204 Views
Fresh off the heels of last weekend's San Andreas Anniversary celebration in GTA Online, we've got three more days of in-game bonuses and more to take advantage of this Halloween weekend starting today Friday, October 31st.
In ghoulish fashion, all Deathmatches will reward players with Double RP and Double GTA$ all weekend long – including Rockstar Created, Rockstar Verified and all player-created Deathmatch Jobs. The inhabitants of Los Santos will also be out causing mischief in Freemode and gathering treats along the way from Crate Drops including Firework Launchers, exclusive T-shirts and more. We've also got the #TrickOrTreat Snapmatic contest in effect so go all out on your weekend costumes with half price discounts on Masks and select Hats, as well as 50% off orange tints and smoke trails to aid you in capturing the Halloween spirit. Read on for full details.
DOUBLE GTA$ & DOUBLE RP FOR ALL DEATHMATCHES
Frightful GTA Online encounters are guaranteed with Double RP and Double GTA$ in all Deathmatches, all weekend long. Aim for the pumpkin to max out the headshot RP bonus, or seek out a dark corner of the map to plot your ghoulish intentions.
TREATS INSIDE EVERY SPECIAL CRATE DROP
Keep watching the skies! This weekend only, rare vintage GTA T-shirts will be available in Special Crate Drops, with a different shirt available to collect each day of the weekend:
Friday - Flash FM
Saturday - Bobo
Sunday - Fever 105 FM
There'll also be Firework Launchers, Miniguns and an abundant cache of RP, GTA$ and ammo. We've upped the frequency of the Special Crate Drops in every Freemode session - keep an eye on your Feed ticker to find out when they're coming down and look for the Smugglers plane on the map so that you can track the landing spot of the Crate itself, but be warned: You are not alone.
HALF PRICE DISCOUNTS ON HALLOWEEN THEMED GOODIES
To get you into further frightful festivities, you'll also need a costume worthy of playing the part. Vespucci Beach Mask Shop offers an array of accessories and freaky faces to complete your outlandish outfit. This weekend, you'll be able to purchase all masks and hats at half-price and we've also discounted orange weapon tints, orange parachute smoke and orange tire smoke. Finally, in case anyone tries to steal your ride, grab a half-price ignition bomb for a special Halloween trick.
75% DISCOUNT OFF THE RADAR
All Hallows Eve can play tricks on the mind - fool your enemies into doubting their senses with 75% off Lester's Off the Radar service. Go ghost, and use it to get the jump on any goblins looking to ruin your day.
HALLOWEEN SNAPMATIC CONTEST - #TRICKORTREAT
Once you're fully decked out in your most creative outfit, hit the sidewalks and alleyways to put on a full-on freakshow. Capture your best Halloween-themed shot with Snapmatic, tag it with #TrickOrTreat on Social Club and you could have your pic featured at the Rockstar Newswire, not to mention a treat of GTA$1M. Official Rules here.
HALLOWEEN SPECIAL LIVESTREAM
Tune in as we'll be playing through a selection of player-created horror themed Jobs and more during a special Halloween Edition Livestream this Friday October 31st at 4pm ET / 8pm GMT.

The Dodo seaplane: It may take a little firepower to get your hands on this highly versatile GTA classic.
New Events & Rewards
Encounter new events happening all across the world, and complete the challenges they present to unlock exclusive new vehicles like the menacing Imponte Duke O’Death and that veritable GTA classic bird of flight, the Dodo seaplane.
The Imponte Duke O'Death: As you might expect, when you first stumble upon this near-indestructible mayhem machine, trouble will follow. Deal with it judiciously and this beauty’s all yours.
As Michael, follow a trail of cryptic clues to unravel a grisly murder mystery. Put the clues together and you'll unlock two Noir Style Filters, which will give your Story Mode gameplay and Snapmatic photos the feel of a gritty old school crime classic.
Get to the bottom of a murder mystery that strikes right at the heart of Los Santos' most cherished industry.
Weapons: The Rail Gun & Hatchet
Obliterate your adversaries with the high-powered, high-velocity Rail Gun. This piece of experimental military technology also has its own set of Shooting Range Challenges at your local Ammu-Nation shooting range. Or hack and slash foes up close and personal with the brutal Hatchet melee weapon.
Wildlife Photography Challenge
There are new species of animals across Los Santos and Blaine County, and the LS Tourist Board needs someone to document them. As Franklin, catalog unique animal species scattered across the map to unlock the special Kraken Sub.
Stock Car Races
Win a series of new Stock Car Races to earn unique custom Muscle Cars adorned with logos from some of the companies that made this country great.
A mysterious street artist is tagging walls all across town with his simian-inspired silhouettes. Track down and photograph them all to earn new monkey outfits (available to all players) and a special Go Go Monkey Blista exclusively for returning players.
New Vehicles and More
Grind up the Los Santos freeways (and over anybody in your path) with the Cheval Marshall monster truck and take to the skies in a faster and more maneuverable Blimp, compliments of Xero Gas.
There will also be a bounty of content for all players, new and returning, to discover - including a fleet of classic GTA vehicles and a few more surprises we've got planned that you’ll have to discover for yourself come game day. And as previously announced, current GTA Online players on PS3 and Xbox 360 will be able to pick up where they left off, transferring their characters and progression seamlessly to their choice of PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC (Social Club membership required).
In addition, anyone who pre-orders the game will receive a bonus of GTA$1M ($500k for Story Mode and $500k for use in Grand Theft Auto Online). Rockstar also received tons of great questions from excited fans about what's in store for the game. Below are some of the more frequent ones they've gotten that are able to shed a little light on - and stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks. Remember, you can always send your questions to email@example.com, or shoot a tweet at @RockstarGames. If you've got feedback about what you'd like to see in GTA Online specifically, don't hesitate to drop the dev team a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What about the exclusive in-game content I originally received for purchasing the PS3 or Xbox 360 Special Edition or Collectors Edition last year? Will I be able to access that content on PS4, Xbox One or PC?
Yes, if you purchased the Special Edition or the Collector's Edition last year, when you upgrade to one of the new systems, you will automatically have those items unlocked and accessible. Those in-game bonuses include the Stunt Plane Trials, Bonus Outfits and Tattoos, and the Pistol .50, Bullpup Shotgun and melee Hammer all for Story Mode use; as well as the Custom Classic GTA Parent Characters and the high-end Khamelion electric car for GTA Online. Furthermore, if you missed out on your chance to buy a CE or SE the last time around, Rockstar will also make all of that content available for all players on PS4, Xbox One and PC to earn and acquire with in-game cash (original SE and CE owners will not have to spend any in-game cash to obtain them, they will automatically be accessible upon upgrade).
Can you only make the GTA Online character progress transfer once?
If I transfer my GTA Online character to the new systems, will I still be able to play with him/her on my PS3 or Xbox 360?
Yes, you will only be able to transfer your character once. After transferring your character to PS4, Xbox One or PC, you can continue playing with him/her on your PS3 or Xbox 360 but the progress you make while playing is not shared to the character you transferred to your new version.
Will PC players also receive the exclusive upgrade content like the Dodo and Dukes?
Yes indeed! The content detailed above will be available to returning players on all three new platforms.
Will any of these updates being made for the new systems be also made available for the previous generation of consoles?
The vastly enhanced graphics and many other gameplay updates on the new versions of Grand Theft Auto V are really only made possible by virtue of the powerful new hardware of the new consoles and PC. Some of the other updates such as the upgrade content detailed above are being designed exclusively as a reward for returning players so those will not be released on the previous versions; however do stay tuned for more updates to be made available for Grand Theft Auto Online across all platforms and they'll have more information on that soon.
Will my created Jobs transfer over to the new systems?
Yes, any Jobs you've published in GTA Online using the Creator tool will transfer over so that you and others can continue playing them on the new platforms. Please be aware however that Leaderboards, Snapmatics, Playlists and bookmarks are unique to the console generation you made them on so those will not carry over. (GTAV photographers should get ready to take all-new high-res Snapmatics!)
Will 30-person GTA Online sessions include competitive modes such as Races and Deathmatches?
Yes, they will! GTA Online on the new systems will support 30 players not just in Free Roam but in competitive modes as well (unless of course the Job you’re playing has been designed to be set to a specifically lower player max). Rockstar looks forward to seeing what unique matches the community can create for a vastly increased number of players.
That's all for now! Stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks and join the fun in the forums!

Put it all on the line this weekend, tomorrow Friday October 3rd thru Sunday October 6th, in the GTA Online Last Team Standing Event Weekend. Limited time only GTA$ and RP bonuses, exclusive weekend-only unlocks to collect, special contests, an epic all-star Last Team Standing live stream and much more await those with both the staying power and the stopping power to rule the 10 new Jobs from The Last Team Standing Update and the many, many more currently being created by the Social Club community with the new Last Team Standing Creator Mode.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 02, 2014 :: Posted by bOnEs :: 0 Comments :: 2,777 Views
You’ve only got one life, use it wisely. The Last Team Standing Update introduces powerful weaponry, tactical gear, high-performance vehicles and all-new Creator features to celebrate Grand Theft Auto Online’s most high stakes mode. Today's update features 10 new Last Team Standing Jobs spread out across Los Santos and Blaine County plus additional gameplay changes to allow for a greater range of game types and enhanced matchmaking.
Take enemies down with brutal force when you equip the new Heavy Shotgun.
Visit Ammu-nation to expand your arsenal with a pair of potent new firearms: the Heavy Shotgun delivers serious stopping power in close quarters, and the Marksman Rifle can drop targets from long range with lethal accuracy. Plus, suit up your team with new Outfits, along with new Masks, Tops, Pants, Bulletproof Helmets and more.
Rule the road with two new Motorcycles – the Shitzu Hakuchou sport bike and the LCC Innovation chopper. Or, for those with more sophisticated tastes, show off your elite style in the fiery Lampadati Furore GT.
The Hakuchou and Innovation lead the Furore GT here on the Great Ocean Highway.
This update also presents the launch of the Last Team Standing Creator Mode. You can now design original GTA Online Jobs in this strategic and deadly mode that pits teams against one another with no second chances. This Creator update features a new option for building even more dynamic matches across other modes – with the ability to add Rounds to Captures and Last Team Standing Jobs. Or raise the stakes by adding rounds to Rockstar Created LTS, Captures and Versus Missions. And be sure to take advantage of the new Forced Weapon setting, allowing you to limit weapons for specific options like “Snipers-Only”.
All new tactical gear including bullet proof helmets are now available in shops.
Also part of today’s automatic update, we’ve now globally synchronized the Job voting screens, allowing us to merge sessions where players have voted on the same Job. This, combined with the on-call matchmaking introduced in a previous update allows players to find the Jobs they like more easily, and to stay with as many like-minded players as possible. There are lots of additional changes and tweaks to GTA Online, all listed out in detail at the Rockstar Support site. These include the ability to now go on-call for activities like Arm-Wrestling, Darts or Golf or to quick match with your friends for those activities using the option in your phone, as well as an increase in the maximum bet limit from GTA$2,500 to GTA$10,000.
To download today's update, just switch on your online-connected PS3 or Xbox 360 and start GTAV. From there, you'll be prompted to download the automatic update (1.17).
Look for the details of our Last Team Standing Update Event Weekend to hit the Newswire later today, and stay tuned for more info on future updates to GTA Online.

NEW CONTACT MISSIONS
As part of today's update, two new Contact Missions are available to play (once you meet the rank requirement you'll receive a phone call from the associated Contact):
Chop Chop (Contact: Trevor, Rank 43, 2-4 Players)
"Our friend Ronald is getting increasingly agitated about Merryweather Security's presence in the state, and a nervous Ron gets on my t***. Why don't you go to Sandy Shores Airfield, hack into the Merryweather Network, find their outposts and then take their choppers and blow 'em all to hell. Okay? Great!"
Effin' Lazers (Contact: Martin, Rank 44, 2 Players)
"The market's about to be flooded with inferior product. I... WE... have too much invested in it to let that happen. I need you to get in some Lazer fighter jets and take out the planes holding product before they land. It sounds extreme, but these are desperate times."
NEW RACES, PARACHUTE JUMPS & CAPTURE
Airstrip (Rank 11, 1-8 Players)
If a recruit shacks it on exercise, they don't need the added humiliation of hitching back to the landing strip. Practice landing where you took off with this flowing descent from 4,300 ft. to McKenzie Airfield. On the way down you can admire the view or ruminate on failure.
Branching Out (Rank 20, 1-8 Players)
From the sea side to mountain peaks, from hikers to technophobic, cannibalistic cultists, from state parks to secret weed farms, the San Andreas wilderness has it all. Drink it in with this Lap Race for choppers by Mount Chilliad and Raton Canyon.
Flying Colors (Rank 12, 1-8 Players)
Regulation Air Force exercises happen at high altitude over the ocean, but where's the fun when you can't get a feel for how fast you're flying. Lap Race for planes low over rural Eastern Blaine County. How close to the dirt can you go without taking the head off a fruit picker?
GTA: Wingmen (Rank 1, 2-8 Players)
It's a buyer's market as rival groups attempt to deliver Buckingham military jets to LSIA. They're vintage collectors' items and they fly like it, so use Lazers for defense and attack. Each team will only have one Buckingham in play at any time. Start points are Fort Zancudo and the Sandy Shores Airfield.
High Dive (Rank 1, 1-8 Players)
Dive bomb Downtown in this point to point for jets. You start in the Tongva Hills, climb to high altitude, make a near vertical descent, and try to pull up at the last minute. It's the highest climb and fall we've got on our books. You'll make an impression or make an impression on the ground.
In The Loop (Rank 35, 1-8 Players)
Hold onto your lunch or you'll need windshield wipers on the inside of your cockpit. Point to point for jets through the docks and Downtown. Obstacles to avoid and two loop the loops will keep you on your toes… or your head.
Under the Bridge (Rank 11, 1-8 Players)
Gravity does most of the hard work when you jump out a chopper from 4,000 ft. We're going to make it a bit more interesting by staging the drop in the flight path, and making recruits go under a bridge. Best played at night, so you can see the warning lights on obstacles.
Have fun and join us in the forums!

He can also locate transportation (cars, boats, planes and helicopters) or play tricks with the radar - revealing other players or masking your location temporarily. Lester’s normal GTA$1,000 fee for setting bounties on other players has also been slashed to GTA$500.
