GTA Online: Transform Races Now Available to Play

Launch your supercar from Stunt Ramps, skydive over the Alamo Sea and barrel roll through Air Gates on your way to the finish line - all in the same track with Transform Races, the latest evolution of racing in GTA Online. Transform Races are part Stunt Race and part mind-bending metamorphosis, switching you from land to sea to sky, and back again… These 15 new Rockstar Created Races will have you piloting fan-favorite vehicles across the various classes - from nimble planes like the Besra and Molotok to speedy Supers like the Vagner and Zentorno, and even versatile Special Vehicles like the Ruiner 2000 and Rocket Voltic. For a rundown of all the Transform Races now available to play, with links to bookmark each of them on Social Club for quick and easy access, check out the descriptions below: Gauntlet II - There’s the surgically precise fighter pilot, and there’s the maniac with his foot on the floor of a Phantom Wedge. You'll need to be both here. Featuring the Molotok, Motorcycles, the Phantom Wedge and the Oppressor. Get Wrecked - Get creative above the Los Santos Docklands on this destructive lap Transform Race. Featuring the Seashark, Shotaro, Super cars, the Mallard, and Havok. Home Run - You haven’t thrown a real San Andreas no-hitter until you’ve taken five vehicles through the land, sea and airspace of Blaine County. Featuring Super cars, the Vortex, Mallard, Seashark and Havok. Junk Yard - When the apocalypse finally gets underway in San Andreas, and the world lies in ruins, you can bet there will be some interesting racing opportunities in amongst the wreckage. Get practicing for the big day. Featuring Motorcycles, the Seashark and Mallard. McKenzie - If you want all the highs and lows of Blaine County with none of the itches and nosebleeds, this point to point Transform Race that starts on Motorcycles is for you. Also featuring the Besra, Blazer Aqua, Zentorno and Trophy Truck. Mixed-Up - Watch as the docklands, airport, business district and Legion Square all bleed into a single migraine-inducing blur in this Lap Transform Race. Featuring Super cars, the Besra, Ramp Buggy and Rocket Voltic. Neon Mountain - Ever wondered what it would be like to drop a few tabs and race through the title sequence of some vintage 80s sci-fi? Featuring Motorcycles, the Besra and Seashark. Plummet III - Make short work of the stratosphere in a really expensive sports car – with a twist or four. Featuring Sports cars, the Besra, Blazer Aqua, Havok and Akuma. Separation – Start off strapped into the lovechild of a supercar and a space shuttle. Throw in a tightly-wound stunt plane and a herd of pocket-sized helicopters, and your multitasking better be up to scratch. Featuring the Rocket Voltic, the Mallard, Havok and Motorcycles. Slalom - Whether you’re weaving through obstacles on two wheels, four wheels or two wings, the fundamental skills are the same: balance, precision, and dodging the flaming wrecks of your former competitors. Featuring Motorcycles, the Mallard and XA-21. Slam Dunk - Line your shot up perfectly, let the pressure slide right off you, and hit nothing but net. Then watch the guy behind you screw it up by a few feet and see his flying muscle car explode on the rim. Featuring Motorcycles, the Ruiner 2000, Besra, Blazer, Hauler and Whippet. Split Personality - You’ve only got a few seconds of hurtling down Mount Chiliad on a BMX to make that age-old decision. Left or right? With the pack or on your own? Jet-powered super car or flying motorbike? Featuring BMXes, the FMJ, Rocket Voltic, Besra, Oppressor and Parachutes. The Dragon - What could be more appropriate for a diverse and cosmopolitan city like Los Santos than a race track in honor of the Chinese year of the Giant-Dragon-with-a-Fighter-Jet-in-its-Mouth? Featuring Compacts, the Faggio Sport, Molotok and Vagner. Vinewood Thrills – Cruise under the Vinewood sign and ride an antique sailboat off the coast - inside a five minute lap with an executive chopper and a supercar joining the dots. Featuring Motorcycles, the Swift, Marquis, Seabreeze and Vagner. Warped – You’re in a freefalling supercar above the business district. You blink, and you’re piloting a jet fighter. Blink again, and you’re not quite sure if this is a rocket-powered Super or a flimsy ultralight. Featuring Super cars, the Molotok, Rocket Voltic, Ultralight and parachutes.

Coming Soon to GTA Online - Transform Races and More

Instantly mix vehicle and race types as you switch between land, sea and air in Transform Races, the next evolution of stunt racing in Grand Theft Auto Online. Jump instantly from the curves of a gritty, downtown street race straight into a speeding jet high above Los Santos, then dive face first down Raton Canyon on a jet ski and more. Transform Races are new and unique stunt tracks that seamlessly transition across land, sea and air, running the gamut of available vehicle types - everything from Supers and Off-Roads, to Boats, Planes, and Helicopters - and even some skydiving thrown in for good measure. Look for Transform Races to launch this month, and for these additions to the Race Creator to come later this year along with a new set of stunt props - giving you everything you need to build your own fiendish contests. Transform Races aren't the only new gameplay updates coming to GTA Online this fall. There are also a pair of new Adversary Modes on the horizon; Condemned, a free-for-all with one player on the clock as a dead man walking, the only chance at survival through passing this death sentence on to an opponent. And Dogfight, where you can live out your fighter pilot fantasies and send the opposition spiraling to their doom. The Hangars at LSIA and Fort Zancudo will need to make room for upcoming new aerial options, including the lethal and oft-requested Hunter attack helicopter. Road warriors also have some unique new rides to look forward to in the not-too-distant future, including the classy Coil Cyclone supercar and the menacing Vigilante. Plus, look out for more to come to GTA Online later this year, including new Weaponized Vehicles and inventory updates at Legendary Motorsport, new properties coming on the market via Maze Bank Foreclosures and more…

GTA Online: Smuggler's Run Now Available

Ever been told the sky is the limit? Well, not anymore. It’s time to elevate your criminal empire, taking your assets and your profits in the only direction left to go: straight up. Welcome to GTA Online: Smuggler's Run. Customizable Hangar properties are the center for your new smuggling ring, complete with a complimentary Cuban 800, optional living quarters, aircraft custom workshop, office, show floor and aircraft storage. Stock it with a fleet of lovingly personalized aircraft, take to the skies, and don’t come down until every cubic foot of Los Santos airspace has been brought under the control of a tax-exempt Air-Freight Business stretching from sea to shining sea. The smuggling business is full of opportunities for proactive CEOs, MC Presidents and VIPs and a brand new Hangar is just the starting point you need. So, get yourself logged into the Free Trade Shipping Co app with the help of Nervous Ron, acquire the cargo – from high demand narcotics to fine jewelry – and make the sale to eager buyers awaiting your air-dropped delivery. SEVEN NEW AIRCRAFT The skies above Los Santos are about to get a lot more interesting. Everything from vintage dogfighters to miniature choppers to cold war bombers are now in stock (and available at a special trade price for committed smugglers). These magnificent flying machines can be stored in your private Hangar, and customized using a range of options including engine and handling upgrades, countermeasures, liveries, weapons, bombs and more with the investment in an Aircraft Workshop. You can even drop off any aircraft in your Pegasus inventory and display (or store) them in your Hangar, allowing you to call them up as your own Personal Vehicle from the Player Interaction menu. Here's a look at all the new inventory available now at Elitás Travel and Warstock Cache & Carry: Buckingham Alpha-Z1 – A speedster’s dream and a smuggler’s preferred getaway racer. Engine: four cylinder, fixed pitch. Wing area: 66 square feet. Top Speed: routinely fatal. Available from Elitás Travel. LF-22 Starling - One moment you're on the runway, slowly inching into position, wondering what all the fuss is about. The next, you're 220 feet in the air and rising, a shrieking human speck on the front end of a blazing rocket trail headed straight for the stratosphere. The LF-22 Starling packs mounted rockets, optional homing missiles and bombs for extra punch. Available from Warstock Cache & Carry. Mammoth Tula - Remember the kid who always had a multi-tool with him? Remember how popular he was? Well, if he had survived high school, there's only one set of keys he would have in his fanny pack: the Tula is a quad-prop monster with VTOL and water-landing capabilities, space for turrets and a bomb bay, and the capacity for JATO upgrades. Be prepared. Available from Warstock Cache & Carry. Nagasaki Havok - In the world of tactical air support, bigger is better, right? Wrong. Incredibly small and highly maneuverable, if the Havok was any smaller you’d have to stay on the ground and use a phone app to fly it. Throw the option for a machine-gun upgrade and decoy flares, and you're going into any negotiations with a serious edge. Available from Elitás Travel. Nagasaki Ultralight - What red-blooded American hasn't gazed at an eagle as it soars through an empty sky, refined by millions of years of evolution into the epitome of aerial dexterity and lethal precision and wondered: what could be more dignified, more transcendent? Well, now you know. Available from Elitás Travel. V-65 Molotok – The poster child for brutalist military chic, the V-65 Molotok has been reproduced in juntas and dictatorships right across the developing world, and that's not just because of the lethal efficiency of its twin nose-mounted machine guns. It's because when you look this merciless, the battle's won before you've even taken off. Available from Warstock Cache & Carry. Western Rogue - To the casual observer, the Rogue looks like a classic, single-prop training aircraft. And that's exactly what you want them to think. Because with room for machine guns, missiles, anti-intercept countermeasures and a full-size bomb bay, you'll have those casual observers running for any available cover. Available from Warstock Cache & Carry. NEW ADVERSARY MODE: MOTOR WARS Blending the adrenaline rush of Drop Zone with the claustrophobic tension of a match of Penned In, this brutal Adversary Mode is a deadly scavenger hunt where second place is not an option. Up to four teams parachute into a periodically shrinking kill box strewn with a lethal assortment of guns, explosives and Weaponized Vehicles. Work together, find a vehicle, and fight opposing teams and the shrinking map to survive and win. NEW CARS: VAPID RETINUE AND GROTTI VISIONE Your head may be in the clouds, but that doesn’t mean you’ve forgotten the smell of burning rubber. Whether it’s the seductive panache of the Vapid Retinue or the ozone-burning brilliance of the Grotti Visione, there’s something new in town to remind you that no matter how many air miles you rack up, nothing can replace the open road. NEW APPAREL In this brave new world of low-duty high-profit trade you have to look the part - and no self-respecting smuggler would be seen dead or alive this season without the latest clothes and tattoos. So whether you’re an urban pirate, a fighter ace, or you just need some thermal and night-vision headgear for your next cargo sale, there’s something new in town for you. BONUSES AND MORE... Hit up the Social Club Events page for details on all the latest discounts plus in-game clothing unlocks featuring the latest additions to the Rockstar Apparel collection at the Warehouse.

GTA Online: Gunrunning Now Available

Dominate the illegal arms trade in Southern San Andreas with Gunrunning, the latest update to Grand Theft Auto: Online. Your career as a prolific arms dealer begins with the acquisition of a Bunker. These underground fortresses serve as your base of operations for all Gunrunning activities, and each one is equipped with a computer terminal to tap into the Disruption Logistics network.  Start a Setup mission as a CEO, MC President or a VIP to source supplies, then assign your employees to manufacturing weapons, researching upgrades or split their time between the two. Your stock will grow over time (and more quickly with Staff upgrades) and when ready, reap the profits from your business by moving your merchandise to interested buyers across Los Santos and Blaine County. To ease the entry into this underground network for new would-be entrepreneurs, the required collateral to register as a VIP has been lowered to a $50,000 minimum Maze Bank balance. This subterranean lair also comes with a suite of comforts and options. Once you’ve chosen your property from Maze Bank Foreclosures, you can pick from a range of styles. Add a shooting range (and compete against up to 3 other players), personal quarters, a gun locker and bespoke transportation options. When you’re ready to escalate your operation, the Bunker can store a fully road-ready Mobile Operations Center. These massive rolling strongholds are available from Warstock Cache and Carry, and serve as another property in your portfolio - complete with options for three modular bays that can be assigned to tactical services like a Command Center, personal amenities like Living Quarters, or in-house customization workshops like the two-bay Weapon & Vehicle Workshops, or the modest Personal Vehicle Storage. WEAPONIZED VEHICLES A brand new class of motorized mayhem. Six armed military-grade death machines offer a range of creative solutions to destroying your opposition in any combat situation, each fully customizable with exclusive mods unlocked by your Research Staff and applied in the Vehicle Workshop module: APC – A heavy duty armored personnel carrier equipped with a turret-mounted cannon that tears through metal like a hot knife through butter. Portholes offer vantages for small arms fire for up to four heavily armed mercenaries while the armored hull can conduct combat anywhere across both land and water. Available upgrades include SAM Battery and dropping Proximity Mines for pursuers to discover. Dune FAV - Built for post-apocalyptic doomsday enthusiasts, this lightweight, armored sandrail features a dash-mounted machine gun, and is the kind of stylish transport that will slap the slack jaws off the Yellow Jack parking lot loiterers. Upgrade options include a 40mm Grenade Launcher, 7.62mm Minigun and Proximity Mines. Half-Track – Who says you can’t have your 4 layer quad cannon shaped cake and eat it too? Wield the all-terrain capabilities of a tank, with all the advantages of a super-loaded truck: straightforward handling, a spacious cabin, and lots of fresh air for the lunatic on the .50 cal in the back. Swap that .50 cal for Quad 20mm Autocannons and add Proximity Mines from your MOC’s Vehicle Workshop. Oppressor – It’s a motorcycle that flies. As if you need to know anything else, this rocket-powered hyperbike offers all your principles of flight in one package; thrust, extendable wings for lift and drag, and a front-mounted machine gun for good, clean fun. Poor aim? Upgrade the machine gun to Missiles.  Weaponized Tampa - The familiar muscle car gets a weaponized facelift now supporting a top-mounted Minigun and industrial-grade armor. Upgrades include Front Missile Launchers, Rear-Firing Mortar and Proximity Mines. Anti-Aircraft Trailer - What you choose to reduce to smoking rubble with this thing is your business, and the sky is most definitely not the limit. Comes towed by a Vapid Sadler as standard, and artillery can be upgraded to Dual 20mm Autocannons or a Homing Missile Battery. This new breed of mobile weaponry means a whole new frontier of criminal enterprise. As you complete supply missions and as your Gunrunning business flourishes, unlock and launch Mobile Operations from your Mobile Operations Center. Complete each to unlock the Warstock Trade Price. MK II WEAPONS UPGRADES A huge range of tactical customizations are made possible by Mk II upgrades available exclusively from your Mobile Operation Center’s Weapon Workshop. Mk II variants of the Pistol, SMG, Heavy Sniper, Combat MG, Assault Rifle and Carbine Rifle deliver a wealth of options including new magazines packing tracer, incendiary, armor piercing, hollow point and other types of rounds. Add Night Vision, Holographic and Thermal Scopes, new grips, suppressors, Muzzle Brakes, Liveries, Tints and much more.  NEW CLOTHES, TATTOOS & HAIRCUTS This season, the boutiques and salons of Los Santos are ready to kit you out in the very latest in mercenary survivalist chic: camo parkas, ex-military berets, heavy duty combat boots, menacing tats, and buzzcuts. BONUS UNLOCKS, DISCOUNTS & MORE Head over the Social Club Events page for details on all of this week's weapons, vehicle and ammo discounts as well as a number of exclusive clothing unlocks, including the new white Hawk & Little Hoodie (pictured above) and an in-game version of the Rockstar Class of '98 Tee that was recently added to the Rockstar Warehouse collection.

GTA Online: Gunrunning - Underground Bunkers, Mobile Operations Centers and Weaponized Vehicles

To thrive as an arms dealer in GTA Online: Gunrunning, it’s going to take more than street smarts. Choose your supporting vehicles and armaments wisely for your best chance to outwit both the feds and any rival dealers. Start moving weapons to eager buyers in Los Santos or Blaine County to earn a tidy profit and tap into powerful new upgrades, modifications and heavy duty weaponry. Here’s a deeper look at just a few of the potent new tools at your disposal in Gunrunning. Everything begins with a Bunker: the massive, underground hub of your new enterprise. Any CEO, VIP or MC President can jump start their promising career from here to get operations off the ground.  For heavy duty tactical operations on the move, arms dealers can invest in a Mobile Operations Center (MOC), the kind of powerful support usually enjoyed only by trained assassins or rogue nuclear states. Storable in your Bunker, this drivable command center’s modular construction allows for tailored combinations of vehicle workshop, weapons workshop, luxury living quarters, and command center – with facilities for upgrading and customizing your arsenal and modifying Weaponized Vehicles (including turrets for your MOC that can be manned by your squad) – all at your fingertips, and pulled by a fully customizable commercial semi. Weaponized Vehicles are a brand new class to stock and customize. Build a fleet to cover every eventuality: from the ultimate utility of the fully amphibious, canon-toting APC, to a mobile anti-aircraft trailer that’ll have pilots soiling their cockpits across the state. Weaponized Vehicles can also be employed as company assets instrumental in delivering cargo to any drop-off. Beyond manufacturing your stock to sell, reap the benefits of your Bunker’s white coat staff by allocating their time to Research and they’ll get busy unlocking a range of optional upgrades including unique personal weapon modifications, a whole range of brutal tech for your Weaponized Vehicles, and terrifying upgrades for your Mobile Operations Center. Check back soon to the Rockstar Newswire for more details on GTA Online: Gunrunning.   Previously:First Details and Screens for GTA Online: Gunrunning
