Reddit Reactions

The latest update has received mixed reactions from the GTA Online community, via the GTA Online sub-Reddit.

One user stated "That’s actually kinda boring week, I’ll pass" and another remarked "This feels like a week to grind Netflix".

However, for players that are newer to the game, this week's updates offers some great opportunities.

"It’s time. This week I pull the trigger on the MK2 and become a 2020 gta online player" said one user, who is clearly ecstatic that they can catch up with the rest of the gamer base.

Another gamer asked "is this it, or will there be more? Really hope jets will be on discount."

Well only time will tell, but we'll update this piece with all the latest news as soon as it drops.

Open Wheel Racing Content

LOOK FAMILIAR: GTA’s PR4 looks very similar to Ayrton Senna’s McLaren

The addition of Open Wheel Racing to GTA Online upped the stakes last month.

The choice of tyre compounds, the ability to pit to restore grip & fix damage, the quick but difficult street circuits, and the continued chaos, gives it a feeling totally different to your usual GTA race.

As a brand new game mode, we're expecting Rockstar to include some updates for the Open Wheel Racing Series during March.
