GTA V Online Software Update Celebrates Independence Day

A new GTA V online software update will roll out this week in celebration of Independence Day.

This July 4th special will add new vehincles, weapons and properties to Rockstar's online multiplayer mode. Some of the vehicles include the Sovereign motorcycle and the Liberator monster truck. New weapons such as the retro Musket and Firework Rocket Launcher will now be available inside Ammu-Nation.

New properties will be added to the Dynasty 8 rolls with locations in Paleto Bay, Vinewood Hills and the Pleasure Pier which will now have access to the Ferris Wheel and Leviathan Roller Coaster. Patriotic t-shirts, haircuts and masks will also be available.

The update will bring some patches and tweaks to the game that include On Call Matchmaking to allow users to accept a Job invite and keep playing until its full.

The GTA V Online Heists DLC release will be delayed, according to a Rockstar announcement made last month.

The new content was scheduled to launch for the game during the spring, but it will be pushed back due to the content taking longer to create than originally expected.

"We know many fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Online Heists that we had planned to release for you this spring, and they are taking more time to create than originally anticipated. We are very sorry for the delay, and we are working hard to bring them to you as soon as we can," said Rockstar.

"Stay tuned for more information on that as well as lots of other ongoing content updates, enhancements and additions to the world of GTA Online that are on the way," they added.

Another recent GTA V online update titled "I'm Not a Hipster" brings content related to that culture to the game.

It is now available for download and features new gear that corresponds with the name including retro print tees, skinny jeans, hairstyles, tattoos, animal masks, customary new vehicles and weapons.

New cars including the Glendale, Warrener, Blade and Rhapsody are also available with the update. Ammu-Nation will now stock the Vintage Pistol and Antique Cavalry Dagger and 12 new jobs have also been added.
