July 22, 2022
Alongside a host of new gameplay additions, a fleet of new vehicles, and much more to come next week and in the weeks to follow, GTA Online: The Criminal Enterprises will implement a significant number of overall experience improvements, including many requested by players via the GTA Online Feedback website.
Thanks in no small part to this vast resource from our community, we have a wide range of improvements and upgrades to the overall experience of GTA Online for all current platforms, including the latest generation of consoles.
Business Protections and Upgrades
Players can also continue to sell their goods in Public Sessions, and those who do will receive an increased high-demand bonus for their efforts.
Vehicle Customization Enhancements and Changes
All vehicles with access to the LS Car Meet will be able to be equipped with Low Grip Tires, giving players even more customization options when modifying vehicles at the LS Car Meet.
Vehicles will be delivered faster when requesting from the Mechanic.
Players will no longer incur a charge for destroying another player’s Weaponized Personal Vehicle, avoiding penalties for those who return fire on (and successfully neutralize) attackers.
The Avenger and Mobile Operations Center Vehicle Workshops will accommodate any vehicle that can fit, as opposed to only select vehicles (excluding the Oppressor Mk II, which is modified via its own workshop inside the TerrorByte).
The number of ownable properties will be increased from 8 to 10, increasing total garage space by up to 20 vehicles.
The Legendary Motorsport and Southern San Andreas Super Autos websites will feature new filters and browsing shortcuts, which can be tabbed using L1/R1 or LB/RB on console.
Plus, the effectiveness of the Homing Missiles on the Pegassi Oppressor Mk II has been reduced, and its countermeasures will have increased cooldowns and fewer uses. Meanwhile, the Sparrow helicopter will have Chaff and Flare Countermeasures available when being modified inside the Kosatka, to make it less vulnerable to enemy fire. As with all other areas of GTA Online, we will continue to monitor player feedback on this change and how it impacts the streets of Los Santos.
Whether assisting Franklin in his recovery of Dr. Dre’s missing music or partying in The Music Locker, visiting El Rubio’s tropical haven or simply wreaking havoc with friends across the city, players across Southern San Andreas can look forward to a slew of new — highly-requested — improvements, arriving July 26:
The Criminal Enterprises will also include increased GTA$ payouts across a number of activities in GTA Online, giving both new and veteran players greater freedom to play the content they enjoy the most and get what they want faster.
Changes to these payouts will of course combine and stack with our ongoing weekly bonuses, meaning even bigger payouts going forward for taking part in your favorite game modes during special events.
With this update, all Heists will be aligned to have the same cooldown timer of 1 in-game day (48 minutes) when playing as a group. We will also adjust specific aspects of The Cayo Perico Heist Finale to better balance a player’s time spent in GTA Online. Solo playthroughs of The Cayo Perico Heist Finale will trigger a cooldown of 3 in-game days. And after stealing a high value Primary Target in The Cayo Perico Heist Finale, the higher value Primary Targets will appear less often for the next 72 hours, while the value of Secondary Targets will increase. This is intended to encourage exploration and cooperation between players.
With More to Come
Thank you all again for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We will continue to review your submissions via the GTA Online Feedback website and look forward to sharing The Criminal Enterprises with you on July 26 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
