More specifically, deathmatches, golf, and tennis will award double RP, while races will offer twice as much in-game money. RP bonuses earned during races (for things like drafting or entering first place) will be doubled, too.

Also during the event, you'll receive an exclusive in-game t-shirt for each day that you complete all three of your daily objectives. Gold metal resprays for your vehicles are free this weekend, as are Pegasus deliveries.

Additionally, Rockstar is hosting new video editor and Snapmatic contests, the details of which are outlined on the company's website.

The Ill-Gotten Gains: Part Two update consists primarily of high-end items for players with plenty of cash to throw around. In addition to new clothing options, it adds new weapons and vehicles that you can now buy in-game.
