Big GTA 5 Online Update Coming Next Week--Here's What It Adds
Is this an Arctic Monkeys album?
Grand Theft Auto V's Online mode continues to expand, and next week developer Rockstar is building on the mode once again. On July 23 the game will receive a new update to add an entire new location, The Diamond Casino & Resort.
"The massive construction project on the corner of Vinewood Park Drive and Mirror Park Boulevard is nearing completion, radically changing the skyline of Los Santos forever," Rockstar says of the new update. "If you're looking to dive into the action, the casino floor has a selection of activities to enjoy. Play against the house using Chips in Three Card Poker, Blackjack and Roulette. Slot Machines with a variety of prizes are also at your fingertips, while Inside Track offers a lounge to watch and cheer along with friends as the drama of virtual horse racing unfolds. Spin the Lucky Wheel in the lobby for chips, cash, and clothing or even the new Truffade Thrax supercar that can be found whirling on the podium during opening week. And be sure to check back each week to see what new high-end vehicle can be won."
There's also a new property type--the Master Penthouse--purchasable as part of the resort. Owners of the penthouse will also gain access to VIP areas of the resort, a roof terrace and infinity pool, and a new storyline involving the Diamond family. Luckily, Twitch Prime members can purchase the Master Penthouse for free if they link their accounts by the end of July 19.

In related news Rockstar was recently confirmed to be developing for Google Stadia, though we don't know what game--or games--that applies to. GTA V with GTA Online would be one possibility, since it already has a successful PC version up and running, though rumors of a Red Dead Redemption 2 PC version have also circulated in recent months.
