Rockstar Games has finally announced their next stage of Summer DLC plans for GTA Online and the Los Santos Tuners in-game event is on the way. Here's everything you need to know about this new addition to Grand Theft Auto Online below.
LATEST - Los Santos Tuners Revealed
Los Santos Tuners is going to be the next expansion to GTA Online and Rockstar Games had this to say about it:
" On July 20, the automotive underground roars to life with GTA Online: Los Santos Tuners. Featuring the LS Car Meet, where you can race, show off customized vehicles, and link up with contacts looking for skilled drivers and a chance at easy money."
This additional content is going to feature Car Meets, Jobs, Races, and more from July 20th onwards.
GTA Online Summer DLC Update Plans
"Car Culture is back on the streets in a big way", according to Rockstar Games, and there's going to be a new underground car meet with new additions to the local racing scene and higher demand for stolen vehicles.
This is all build-up for the main set of Summer updates, though... The first update drops on May 27th.
Stunt Racing: A Cunning Stunts Event
" Eight new Stunt Races are right around the corner, coming to the GTA Online Stunt Series on May 27th. These new tracks will introduce an array of white-knuckle thrills for stunt racers in an assortment of vehicle classes."
Following on from this, we're going to see GTA Online take another trip back to the future. No, not that future.

Deadline: Return of the Shotaro
" Fans of the futuristic Deadline mode will get seven new arenas in which to obliterate opponents with their Shotaro bike’s explosive light trail. "
There isn't any confirmation on when this is due to drop, but we're expecting it to be a couple of weeks after the new Stunt Racing content at least. So... Somewhere around June 17th.
This isn't the only thing coming, though...
Survival: All New Maps
" If eradicating waves of armed resistance is more your appetite, Survival mode will also expand to new locations throughout Los Santos and Blaine County."
GTA Online's Survival game mode is, essentially, a wave-based fight to survive. Think Gears of War's Horde mode, but on Grand Theft Auto V.
Each Survival mode game has ten waves and they can provide a nice challenge that's a welcome break from GTA Online's PvP-based gameplay. This Summer, we're going to get new Survival modes and (hopefully) some variations on the current gameplay to keep things fresh.
If this does drop after the Stunt Racing and Deadline content updates, we're expecting it sometime in the first week or two of July. However... Rockstar Games could be planning to expand on this announcement as we go.
We're expecting Rockstar Games to continue to drip-feed information as we continue into the Summer. So, don't be surprised if there are a few more announcements soon.
What Do We Still Want To See?
We know what we might get, but what do we want to get?
Currently, GTA Online has two major sports players can get involved in; Golf and Tennis.
We think the next GTA Online Summer DLC expansion would be the perfect place to expand on these and further improve the non-lethal activities available in Los Santos.
This could take the form of a new Golf Course or a few new Tennis Court Locations, however, we think the introduction of something like Beach Volleyball would be perfect for GTA Online's next Summer DLC expansion.
In addition to this, further exploration into coastline diving would be a fantastic expansion to Los Santos without the need to technically add new areas.
Finally, GTA Online could and should take inspiration from 007's Thunderball outing for its future summer DLC plans.
Think about it... GTA Online is built for underwater harpoon combat, right? Well... Okay. It can be built for that if Rockstar Games want it to be and that's the beauty of GTA Online.
