Rockstar Games today announced that the next major free update for Grand Theft Auto Online, the multiplayer mode for Grand Theft Auto V, will launch next week and bring with it a host of new downloadable content.

The Business Update, as Rockstar is calling it, will arrive on Tuesday, March 4 on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. The update will introduce new sports cars like the Albany Alpha, Dinka Jester, and Grotti Turismo R; a new airplane called Vestra will also be available.

Grand Theft Auto Online's Business Update will also introduce two new weapons: the Heavy Pistol and the Special Carbine.

The Business Update also brings with it new formal and business casual attire like suit jackets, slacks, glasses, heels, and blouses. "All-business" hairstyles and money-themed tattoos, alongside new masks, will also be available.

All new vehicles and weapons from the Business Update will be available to players in both Story Mode and Grand Theft Auto Online. In Story Mode, the weapons will show up in your inventory and the three cars will be available in your garage. For Grand Theft Auto Online, the weapons can be purchased at any Ammu-Nation store while the cars can be bought from Legendary Motorsport and Elitas.

Finally, Rockstar said it will share further details about a special Business Update weekend event in the near future. The developer also teased that it will soon have news to share regarding Online Heists, the Capture Creator update, new Assassination and Flight School missions, and "much more."

The "much more" could be referencing the story mode DLC currently in development for Grand Theft Auto V. Rockstar Games announced this content in December, teasing that upcoming expansions for the game will launch in 2014 and continue the story of Michael, Franklin, and Trevor. l

Predecessor Grand Theft Auto IV welcomed two post-release expansions: The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.
