Fixes and Improvements

Sourced directly from Rockstar:

  • Players can now return Personal Vehicles to storage via an option within the Interaction Menu.
  • Players can now own up to eight different Properties
  • Mashing the accelerator prior to starting a race is no longer a viable strategy to gain a speed boost. Instead, players can only receive a starting boost by timing their pedal press once “Go” is shown (or in the case of Open Wheel Races, when the countdown lights are removed).
  • Requesting a Pegasus Vehicle is more convenient than ever, with many additional spawn locations being added to reduce your travel time to the closest available location.
  • When entering the Diamond Casino & Resort, punters will now be told how long they will need to wait before spinning the Lucky Wheel again. That’s the last time you’ll see a clock inside of The Diamond, though, that’s for sure.

New Missions

Rockstar has confirmed the new missions from the Summer Update.
