“GTA Online” will also get a lot of updates in the coming months.
The online game “GTA Online” is one of Rockstar Games’ greatest successes. Even six years after it was first published, the online mode for “GTA 5” is still breaking user records and enjoying unbroken popularity. This is not least due to the fact that the developer regularly supplies the game with new content. Original and extensive updates always provide a breath of fresh air and new impulses in the virtual world of Los Santos. For some time now, however, the fear has been in the room that Rockstar could cut back the development of new extensions in favor of other projects and ultimately crush them completely.
GTA Online: Content for Another Year
With the appearance of “Red Dead Online” at the latest, many gamers had expected to turn away from “GTA Online”. That hasn’t happened so far, Rockstar Games has been supplying both games at the same time for a year – and it should stay that way! As Rockstar North employee Rob Nelson recently told a trade magazine, they do not intend to put “GTA Online” in the files in the foreseeable future. The game continues to be hugely successful and there are tons of new ideas in store. They currently have fixed plans for the game for at least another year. So worries about an early end are completely unfounded. Next up, according to Nelson, are special events around the holidays in the starting blocks.

GTA Online: User record in a double pack
According to Rockstar, “GTA Online” set the last user records with the release of the “Diamond Casino” DLC in July and August 2019. Accordingly, the free expansion did not only cater for the most visitors in one day. Over the entire week (July 29 to August 4, 2019), more players cavorted in the online version of Los Santos than ever before. As usual, Rockstar Games failed to provide specific figures, but the rush must have been huge. After all, “GTA 5” sold more than 110 million copies, and in 2014 “GTA Online” had 33 million active players.
GTA Online: luxury and entertainment
What exactly excites players about the new DLC remains unclear. The free expansion brings a whopping 3.5 gigabytes to the data scale and grants gamers access to a world of luxury and entertainment in the huge Diamond Casino and Resort. The facility is located at the intersection of Vinewood Park Drive and Mirror Park Boulevard. Inside the building, you will find expansive luxury rooms and the opportunity to have fun with poker, blackjack, roulette, and slot machines. There is even a horse racing track on the premises. Here you place bets on the potentially fastest horse to multiply your fortune – or to waste it. In the lobby of the resort, you can spin a wheel of fortune free of charge once a day to win chips, money, clothes, or the new “Truffade Thrax Super” motor. With a lot of luck, you will even win the main prize: a new car!
GTA Online: VIP Missions for Penthouse Owners
Alternatively, fresh outfits can be bought at the resort. The range of available models changes regularly. If you just want to unwind in style, buy the resort’s penthouse. There you will find a huge roof terrace with an infinity pool and all kinds of luxury options. If necessary, the apartment can also be furnished yourself, and you can choose from different, chargeable designs. As the owner of the penthouse, you receive VIP status and have access to exclusive options and events. As a member of the Diamond family, you also have access to special missions that bring you exclusive rewards.
