In the rep-fuelled world of GTA Online, there are few greater status symbols than the wheels you drive. To bolster your garage, here are all of the GTA Online Los Santos Tuners’ new cars.

From exotic imports made for tinkering to all-out muscle, if it’s fast, then someone will be showing it off at the LS Car Meet.

If you’re looking for a fresh automobile, then there are a total of 17 new cars dropping alongside the GTA Online Los Santos Tuners update.

You’ll be able to snag the keys to 10 of the cars at launch, with the final 7 drip-fed across the following weeks – much like with any new drop in GTA Online.

As always, all of the new cars are inspired by classic and current cars from the real world, with the majority parodying legendary Japanese tuning platforms from Nissan, Mazda, Toyota and Honda.

But no American car meet would be complete without a Mustang, with the Vapid Dominator GTT drawing from a late ‘60s model.

Here are the ten cars dropping at launch:

To unlock the lower trade price for each of these new cars, you need to raise your reputation level with the LS Car Meet.

As for their real-world counterparts, there’s always going to be some quibbling about the exact year and model, but GTA-playing car-buffs are usually on the money.

Rockstar Locking Some GTA Online Car Upgrades To PS5, Xbox Series X/S

Kotaku 20 July, 2021 - 05:00pm

“Select vehicles will be upgradable with all-new speed improvements and more,” Rockstar wrote during its recent breakdown of the upcoming Los Santos Tuners expansion. “These special upgrades will be available only on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of Grand Theft Auto V.”

Despite being announced over a year ago, we’re still very much in the dark when it comes to what awaits us when Grand Theft Auto V comes to next-gen consoles on November 11. It’s a safe bet that the game, which was first released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 almost 8 years ago, is going to look a lot better and load a lot faster, but that only accounts for the “enhanced” part of Rockstar’s own “expanded and enhanced” description of the upcoming re-releases.

As is often the case, fans have taken umbrage with the idea of Grand Theft Auto Online content being locked to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, with some calling the move a “greedy” one on Rockstar’s part. It certainly doesn’t help that those consoles are still so damn hard to find.

If not for the console shortage, however, this would line up with past changes to the long-in-the-tooth game. After all, Rockstar phased out Grand Theft Auto Online updates on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 altogether in 2015 to focus on the then-new versions of the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s only a matter of time before PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S become the studio’s sole prerogative.

Still, it can be hard to see a game you’ve sunk so much time into go the way of the dodo. Grand Theft Auto Online may continue to thrive on the previous console generation, but this tiny aside on next-gen-exclusive content is probably a good indication that its days are numbered.

How to start the GTA Online Los Santos Tuners update | Autoshop Price, LS Car Meet Location

VG247 20 July, 2021 - 05:00pm

Drivers at the ready, it’s time to show off your flashiest wheels with the GTA Online Los Santos Tuners update.

Alongside some fresh vehicles to acquire, this latest update drops new races to compete in and a new social space: the LS Car Meet.

If that wasn’t enough, you’ve also got a new business venture to explore. There are now 5 purchasable autoshop locations to choose from, which unlock “mini-heist” missions around town.

To mark your space out on the grid, you first need to head over to “a non-descript, graffitied warehouse” in Cypress Flats area of the city.

After you’ve installed the update, you’ll get a text message from the LS Car Meet inviting you to join.

Over on the southeast of the map, you’ll see an “LS” icon.

This is where you need to go to start the Los Santos Tuners update.

After the intro cutscene, you’ll be given access to a couple of new job givers.

First, inside of the LS Car Meet, is Mimi. She’ll offer a variety of races for you to drive in that let you build up your reputation with the meet.

As you increase your rep, you’ll not only earn the right to pay the trade price for the new cars in the Los Santos Tuners update, but access to other tuner club-themed items as well.

You can then go talk to the race organizer in the top left corner of the Car Meet garage to start racing.

Or for some naughtier jobs from KDJ and Sessanta, you’ll need an autoshop as your base of operations.

Open up your iFruit and head over to MazeBank Foreclosures, where you’ll see 5 new Autoshops on the map for you to buy.

The cheapest autoshop, Mission Row, will run you nearly $1.7 million. Whereas the most expensive, La Mesa, costs $1.9 million.

As for optional upgrades, maxing out your autoshop will cost:

That’s a grand total of $4,472,000 if you buy the most expensive, La Mesa, autoshop as well.

To start the missions from KDJ and Sessanta, you need to travel to your new autoshop location, watch the cutscene, then interact with the job board upstairs in the office area.

Remember to make sure passive mode is disabled, then access the Sercuroserv option on your menu to register as a CEO.

This drops you into the Setup mission, where you have to rescue Sesssanta’s car from the La Mesa police impound lot. It’s a relatively simple mission where you steal back the car, lose the cops, and drive back to your shop.

Another cutscene is waiting for you when you return, and after that, you now have access to the regularly rotating list of “mini-heist” contracts. There are six contracts in total.

To complete them, you need to tick off prep work tasks like scoping out the target before you can pull off the main event.

Take-Two Interactive Goes After A Bunch Of GTA Mods

GTA Boom 20 July, 2021 - 05:00pm

In an unexpected and sudden purge, Take-Two Interactive has issued a number of DMCA takedowns against long-running and popular Grand Theft Auto mods that previously were seemingly in line with Rockstar's official statement regarding modding that was published during the OpenIV debacle.

Several high-profile mods were hit almost simultaneously, and there is a particular shared theme among all affected - every mod targeted in some way remastered, remade, overhauled or adapted official GTA content, be it a graphical overhaul of an older game, or the transplantation of a classic map into a newer engine.

Mods affected include Vice Cry, GTA: Liberty City, GTA: Underground, Vice City Overhaul and others. These were all mods that were single player only and available for free, while not infringing on any third party IP - which were the rules established years ago by Rockstar and Take-Two Interactive. Of course, the statement at the time still stated that the publisher reserves the right to go after mods at its discretion, so the modding community never had a hard guarantee to begin with.

Developer "dkluin" informed fans over the GTA: Underground Discord server about the mod being delisted due to a DMCA, and the other listed mods have become unavailable as well following Take-Two's legal team issuing takedown notices. This is a severe blow to the GTA modding community, but the shared pattern among the affected mods has given rise to speculation.

These mods are among some of the best known, so it's not like they flew under the radar before and were just now noticed by the legal team. So why did they get purged now all of the sudden? The answer may lie in the fact that they're all some sort of remaster, or close enough.

Fans speculate that if Rockstar is potentially gearing up to release official remasters of 3D era GTA titles, then these mods would be direct competitors, since they're essentially free alternatives. Leaks have mentioned remasters in the past, and notably Grand Theft Auto 3's twentieth anniversary is coming up later this year.

Either way, a number of huge mods just got torpedoed with no explanation. Whatever the reasoning behind this, even if there are official remasters coming, the move is a major strike against the GTA modding community.
