Grand Theft Auto Online has been around for almost a decade. Despite its long run, Rockstar Games has been consistently putting out new content in the form of events, missions, and more. Some of the major content updates include Dr Dre’s The Contract and Los Santos’ Drug Wars. Loyal fans who are enjoying the game to this day are surely receiving their money’s worth.
Grand Theft Auto Online is getting a new update titled GTA Online: San Andreas Mercenaries, scheduled for release on June 13th. Players will be tasked with defeating Merryweather along with “other dangerous adversaries.”
In San Andreas Mercenaries, you can join a group called Los Santos Angels whose purpose is to take down Merryweather, who is actively trying to bring down the number of adversaries in the underworld scene. Freelance criminals will finally come together to clean up the corrupt criminal organization.
GTA Online NPC Charlie Reed will be featured in this update, lending a hand in various missions such as hacking important data, blowing up different targets in Los Santos, and more. Charlie is also an expert aircraft mechanic and ace pilot, so prepare to spend a lot of time in the air.
Under Charlie’s command, the Mammoth Avenger will be upgraded with a full Operations Terminal and weapon improvements. Players can purchase and use the Avenger without needing a hangar. For those who already own a hangar or plan to do so can customize their Avenger from the hangar itself.
While the next update is jam-packed with action, Rockstar Games is also introducing some quality-of-life improvements to the game:
- When calling Mors Mutual Insurance, you’ll be able to claim all destroyed vehicles at once.
- An alternate sprint control option (hold to sprint) will be added to the Settings Menu.
- Custom description tags for garages to help quickly locate your favorite rides.
- The Willard Eudora and Albany Classique Broadway will become eligible for Taxi Work when using Taxi Liveries.
- Updates to the Creator to incorporate additional props and weather options, including snow.
Although there isn’t much information available about Grand Theft Auto VI yet, fans are more than happy keeping themselves busy with the regular GTA Online updates. This might as well be the norm till GTA VI arrives. Hopefully, that won’t be very long.
