Now Playing: Grand Theft Auto Online Heists - Teamwork Essential

Finally, this week's update will reward players double the usual amount of GTA$ and RP earned during online Heists. The offer, which stands from now until May 16, is valid on all five of the multi-part robberies.

Last week's bonuses on Biker Contract Missions and discounts on a number of weapons and vehicles still stand through May 15, meanwhile.

Grand Theft Auto V continues to sell well to this day: it was one of the top 20 best-selling PS4 games on PSN For April 2017 and regularly finishes in the top 10 of the Australian, US, and UK physical sales charts.

Its popularity is at least in part maintained by continued support for GTA Online, which is updated weekly. One recent update introduced a new game mode similar to old-style GTA games and miniature racers like Micro Machines.
