'Grand Theft Auto Online' Celebrates Valentine’s Day, Adds Classique Broadway Muscle Car, 3X Rewards on Till Death Do Us Part, Clothing And More

by Rainier on Feb. 9, 2023 @ 9:10 a.m. PST

Set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, Grand Theft Auto V delivers a world of unprecedented scale and detail bursting with life, from mountaintops to the depths of the ocean.

When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.

Switch between the interconnected lives of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as they embark on a series of heists across Los Santos and Blaine County in the biggest, deepest and richest open world experience yet, with game world enhancements that include new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.

Grand Theft Auto V also comes with Grand Theft Auto Online, the dynamic and ever-evolving online universe for up to 30 players, and includes all existing gameplay upgrades and content released since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online.

Rise through the ranks to become a CEO of your own criminal empire by trading contraband or form a Motorcycle Club and rule the streets. Pull off daring co-operative Heists, enter adrenaline-fueled Stunt Races, compete in unique Adversary Modes or create your own content to play and share with the entire GTA community.

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, players can earn triple rewards for pairing up in Till Death Do Us Part or by joining a larger team for some close quarters combat in Shotgun Wedding.

Travel Back in Time with the Classique Broadway Muscle Car

The future’s a scary prospect. Why not buckle into the Classique Broadway (Muscle) and head back to a time when futuristic design was utopian and hopeful, instead of a grim, dark, doomsday chic?

Deliver 50 customers to their destinations during Taxi Work to unlock the Downtown Cab Co. livery for the Classique Broadway and recreate some mid-century luxury with subtle whiffs of unfiltered cigarettes and gasoline.

2X GTA$ and RP on Community Series

The creativity and ingenuity of the GTA Online community continues to astound us. The latest and greatest crop of user-created Jobs added to the Community Series are proof positive of that fact, but the Double Rewards for contestants in the Series certainly sweetens the deal.

The newest additions to the Community Series includes the following:

  • [K] Construction Site by  KAIZEN-24-7 - This free-for-all Deathmatch is set on-site in Little Seoul and uses several Creator tools to amp the action up: headshots, melee kills, and vehicular manslaughter all earn bonus points.
  • Khanjali Royale by  I-Daswoelfchen-I - This tank battle royale takes place on an immense map that starts shrinking immediately — longshots will quickly turn into explosive close-quarters encounters.
  • Pirates of Los Santos by  XGoodFellah - Are you a pirate born a few hundred years too late? This Team Deathmatch on two pirate ships built just beyond the reach of the Vespucci Beach boardwalk will give you a taste of life and battle on the high seas.
  • Apocalypse by  VoltycQc - We previously featured this TDM on the Newswire because of its vision of an overgrown downtown Los Santos where fighters duke it out for survival, and figured it warranted a place on the Community Series as well.
  • ! THE PHANTOM DRAIN ! by  DlSBY_ - What happens when you take a chaotic vehicle like the Phantom Wedge and inject it into a successful formula like Sumo? In a word — shenanigans. In a couple more — absolute and utter mayhem.
  • Castle Top by  WildMan2yyz - Sideswipe and trade paint with your competition as you jostle for position on the way to the top of this elaborate castle constructed just above the tarmac of LSIA.
  • Beach Bum by  andreww2012 - This short Stunt Race circuit on the sands of Vespucci Beach will put any four-wheel drive to the test and bring out the competitive side out of any racer worth their salt.
