Go Low and Slow in the Latest GTA Online Update


Name a game that lets you bounce around in a lowrider fitted with hydraulics. If you answered Lowriders (PlayStation 2) or Lowrider Car Game Pro (mobile) then, well, technically you’re not wrong but the answer we’re shooting for is Grand Theft Auto.

A free update for Grand Theft Auto Online is bringing even more variety to all the low and slow lovers out there, and you can start fixing up those sweet rides right now.

The automatic update adds a customization garage named Benny’s Original Motor Works to Strawberry in Los Santos, south of the Olympic Freeway. Here you’ll get to apply all manner of modifications – hydraulics, sound systems, leather interiors, steering wheel skins, bobbleheads and more – to a total of six cars.

The new Willard Faction and Declasse Moonbeam, along with the four previously available cars, are all exclusive to Grand Theft Auto Online. The Moonbeam actually comes with sliding doors, a big deal for anyone simulating outlaw life as it lets you fire two-handed weapons out of them. Maybe we’ll get to do drive-by abductions in the future, hmm.

Rockstar are also bundling in eight new Contact missions that involve Lamar and his scheme to “rule the Los Santos’ Lowrider scene” so that’s neat.

Here’s the catch: only PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One owners are getting this update, leaving last-gen consoles out in the cold.
