GTA 5's Major Import/Export Free Expansion Out Now, Watch the Launch Trailer

The next expansion for GTA Online has arrived.


The Import/Export expansion for GTA V's multiplayer mode, GTA Online, is out now, Rockstar Games announced today. The developer also published a launch trailer--check it out below.

As announced previously, Import/Export is all about stealing cars and further fleshing out your criminal enterprise beyond the Further Adventures in Finance and Felony add-on.

The Import/Export expansion also adds a new Executive Garage where you can store up to 60 vehicles that you've acquired by unlawful means. As a boss, the members of your Organization will be tipped off to cars they can steal--here's what the map of this looks like:

"A range of buyers are always ready to shell out for your newly acquired inventory," reads a line from the expansion's description. "Use the Ad-Hawk Autos network from your Vehicle Warehouse to connect with buyers and deliver the goods. Private buyers are straightforward and will accept vehicles at stock spec but if you want to increase your margins, appeal to Showroom and Specialist Dealers who are seeking modded vehicles and are willing to pay extra for them."

As you steal more vehicles, you'll unlock missions where you can boost "Special" vehicles. As you'd expect, these missions won't be so easy.

These "co-op based efforts ... will require your Organization to deal with a range of SecuroServ operations and plenty of vehicular mayhem," Rockstar said. "Completing Special Vehicle missions opens up the ability to purchase these vehicles at a special SecuroServ trade price, and owning specific Special Vehicles also unlocks new VIP Work. These unique modes of transportation range from the armed and the armored, to the amphibious and the airborne, and will all be stored in the lower level of your Vehicle Warehouse."

There are eight new Special vehicles available (see the full list below), while two new Super-class cars (the Pegassi Tempesta and Ocelot Penetrator) are added with this update. Additionally, new upgrades including the Principe Diablous Custom and Annis Elegy Retro Custom are available.

Import/Export Special Vehicles

  • BF Ramp Buggy
  • JoBuilt Phantom Edge
  • Karin Technical Aqua
  • Nagasaki Blazer Aqua
  • Brute Armored Boxville
  • MTL Wastelander
  • Imponte Ruiner 2000
  • Coil Rocket Voltic

What's more, a new Adversary mode called Turf Wars comes to GTA Online with the Import/Export update. Here is the official description:

"Two to four teams strap themselves into a range of speedy vehicles and compete to control tiles. Drive over each tile to claim it with your team's color while defending your turf from your foes, all while picking up strategically-located rockets in this new vehicular-themed Adversary Mode."

You can earn double RP and GTA$ in Turf Wars.

Additionally, the Import/Export update allows players to customize their character's appearance in a major way, it sounds like. "You've changed your clothes, your tats, your hair, your car, your friends--but you've still got that nagging sense of dissatisfaction. Now with Import/Export, you'll be able to change your character's appearance by giving yourself the mother of all makeovers…" Rockstar teased.

This update also adds new Stunt props to the Rockstar Editor's Director mode, while the ability to form a party and join a GTA Online session together has been added on PS4.

Further still, Rockstar announced a big sale on a number of items. Now until December 19, there will be discounts on bullet-proof tires, car armor, body armor, and all ammo. Additionally, the SuperVolito and SuperVolito carbon helicopters are discounted by 25 percent.

Import/Export, like all of GTA Online's other add-ons, is completely free. It's available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
