News Round Up: GTAOnline, DLC, Avatars and iFruit

Grand Theft Auto V - General News | @ 05:46 PM MDT | By Ash_735
Well there's been some quick batches of news the past few days some small and some quite meaningful so we're doing a round up post instead to cover most of these. First up, an update about Grand Theft Auto Online from Rockstar regarding the Stimulus Pack and the first free Online DLC pack coming in the next few weeks along with a screenshot:

We know many of you are anxiously waiting for us to show you the GTA$ Stimulus Package money we announced a couple weeks back. As mentioned in that post, we of course want to ensure that game progress loss issues are sufficiently sorted before distributing the GTA$ to everyone. We have a few more tweaks and fixes to make in a new title update that will hit sometime next week and then we will distribute the cash.

Coming in early November will be the first add-on content update, the Beach Bum Pack which will bring all-new beach themed vehicles and new weaponry that you’ll be able to use in both GTA Online and Story Mode. Plus new customization options for your GTA Online character including new tats, hairstyles and more. We’ll also be adding lots of brand new action-packed Jobs to play with Gang Attacks, Survivals, Last Team Standings, Parachutes, Deathmatches and Races that will have you bloodying up the waters and coastlines of the finest beach resorts across Los Santos and Blaine County.

We are also working to bring you the debut of the first part of the GTA Online Content Creator this fall – giving players the ability to craft, publish, rate and play custom-made Deathmatch and Race Jobs. We’ll be keeping our eye open for exceptional ones that we’ll be stamping as ‘Rockstar Verified’ and will be featuring them here at the Newswire and as part of forthcoming GTA Online Social Club Events. Both the Content Creator and the Beach Bum Pack are free.

Starting in November will be the first Grand Theft Auto Online Social Club Event weekends which will bring special rewards and bonuses ranging from limited-edition in-game Event Crate Drops to in-game discount specials and even a special new GTA Online live-stream show hosted by Rockstar at the Social Club Events page and Rockstar Games Twitch page – plus prize pack giveaways of hard to find GTAV gear and more.

Next up Rockstar have also released more Avatars on PSN and Xbox Live for you to purchase, you can grab them for $0.49/£0.21/€0.25 each, there's also a "premium" theme released which just cycles through the wallpaper already available on the website, ...for free:

Good news for Android device users as Rockstar have FINALLY released their iFruit app onto the Google Play Store, it does seem to be a bit late but now you can join in with training Chop and customizing vehicles from your mobile device.

Lastly, some of you may have noticed a few websites talking about a large DLC for Grand Theft Auto V which takes place in North Yankton, this was a FAKE, it was made up and some websites decided to roll with it and post about it hoping to get some extra hits. Sorry to say but right now the only DLC we know about is the forthcoming Online DLC packs, anything else you read will most likely be fake.

Looks like a Meyers Manx lookalike. Sweet. I wonder what weapons are included.
