GTA Online’s luxury yachts have generally been considered a Dock Tease by fans, ever since they were introduced several years ago. The cruiseliners certainly look the part, but at around $6 million apiece, they proved to be primarily vanity items for the elite. A new update due out on 11th August, however, will add brand new co-op missions to the release – and you’ll launch them all from the sanctuary of your boat.
The Los Santos Summer Special is the first major update to Grand Theft Auto V’s online mode this year, and also comes with a bunch of brand new Open Wheel Races, a fleet of fresh vehicles, and more. “Galaxy Super Yacht owners will be able to engage in an all-new series of missions, either alone or with up to three shipmates,” explains the Rockstar Newswire. “Everything from deep-sea diving to high-speed hi-jinks on the high seas, there’s action for sailors of all stripes.”
If that’s not enough, you’ll find some brand new Business Battles, while the Diamond Casino & Resort will add a range of Adversary Modes to its premises. Of course, this is just the appetiser ahead of a much larger update due later in the year, with Rockstar promising that “Heists will return in GTA Online’s biggest ever update” later this year.
