GTA Online Update Adds More Peyote Plants So You Can Trip Out, Man
The newest weekly update for GTA Online is here--find out everything that's new.
Rockstar Games has updated Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer mode once more, bringing with it new cosmetics, more events to take part in, special sales, and the most important thing of all: hallucinogenic plants.
Additional Peyote plants are now in the wild across GTA Online. You'll have to "stray from the beaten path" to find them, Rockstar said. But if you do, you'll be treated to a trip that will make you see "hellish" visions and transform your body into "beastly" creatures. Eating these plants will also teach you lessons about the meaning of life and the truth of existence. "Consume at your own risk," Rockstar said.
Peyote plants are collectibles in GTA Online that have been added and removed from the game over the years, but now they are back. They are truly trippy experiences, as consuming them kicks off a vision where your character morphs into land or sea creature like a cat or a shark. Rockstar didn't announce the list of new plants or reveal where to find them, but people on the internet have already located them and you can find numerous videos on YouTube.
Outside of the special herbs, Rockstar has begun a four-week celebration, thanking fans for their ongoing support of GTA Online, which continues to break records. Rockstar will give out gifts, bonuses, and more during the promotion, beginning with the Dinka Verus ATV that players can get for free from Warstock Cache & Carry until March 3.
In other news, all contact missions, open wheel races, and biker sell missions are offering double GTA$ and RP this week. Additionally, players can get the Dinka t-shirt for free just for logging in this week, while completing any casino work mission gets you the Neon Stitch mask. In terms of sales, Rockstar is offering the following discounts on GTA Online vehicles.
- RC Bandito -- 50% off
