GTA 5's Online Mode Getting "Massive, Feature-Rich" Updates This Year


    Rockstar Games today revealed some of the new content coming to Grand Theft Auto V's online mode later this year. In a post on the Rockstar Newswire, the developer teased that GTA Online fans can look forward to a "lot more to come in 2016, including some massive, feature-rich" updates.

    One of these updates will provide players "further adventures in finance and felony," continuing the theme of last year's Executives and Other Criminals update. In this new content (it's unclear if "further adventures in finance and felony" is indeed the title), players will enter the "lucrative and dangerous world of contraband trafficking." Players can acquire "big new properties" that can be used as a base of operations for your criminal organization as well as a storing place for stolen goods.
"Manage inventory directly from your HQ, arranging to buy and sell anything from jewels to narcotics to medical supplies from a range of nefarious suppliers," reads a line from the description. "Expect the unexpected as you head out with your team to make each pickup. Keep your stock in mint condition to maintain value and sell at a profit--and watch for raids on your warehouses between shipments!"

The Executives and Other Criminals update, released in December 2015, allowed players to become a "VIP" and then establish their own crime ring with other players.
