Rockstar Games has announced the in-game bonuses and sales for Grand Theft Auto Online for September 30 through October 3 on the Rockstar Newswire. These bonuses will be followed by the launch of the GTA Online: Bikers DLC on October 4.
To start, anyone who logs on to Grand Theft Auto Online during the bonus period will get a free Yellow Swirl Pajamas and Yellow Swirl Smoking jacket. They will immediately be available to you at no cost, so even if you have no interest in participating in these bonuses it's not a bad idea to pop on for a moment.
Rockstar Games is placing a strong emphasis on CEO work for the days prior to the launch of GTA Online: Bikers. Executive Offices and Warehouses are discounted 50% and Office Decor Customization is discounted by 25%. Warehouse Workbench Vehicle Upgrades (for crate delivery vehicles) are 25% cheaper, and the Special Cargo Crates themselves are similarly discounted by 25%.
As always, there is a selection of vehicles on sale. CEOs might be interested in grabbing the Benefactor Turreted Limo for 50% cheaper than usual, and players looking forward to motorcycle clubs will be happy to know that absolutely all motorbikes are 25% off. If you want to fly in style, the Buckingham Swift helicopter and Luxor plane are 25% cheaper at Elitás Travel. As for supercars, there is a 25% price cut on the Annis RE-7B, Emperor ETR1, and Progen Tyrus at Legendary Motorsport.
Certain in-game services in Grand Theft Auto Online are available at reduced rates. Special vehicle deliveries from Pegasus, Lester's services (such as removing Wanted Levels), and Merryweather services (such as sending a team of mercenaries after a player) are all 50% cheaper.
If you're looking to earn more money in the next few days, CEO missions will be the way to go - Rockstar Games have provided no double GTA$ bonuses this week. However, since crate purchases are cheaper there is now a higher profit margin on running crate missions if that's your style. You will nonetheless be able to get double RP in all Online Heists, VIP/CEO work & challenges, and whenever you're in proximity of the VIP/CEO.
Finally, this week's Premium Stunt Race is the motorcycle-locked Afterburner. To participate in the opportunity to earn triple RP (and potentially a few extra GTA$), simply head over to the Premium Stunt Race blip in Legion Square as per usual.
These bonuses and sales will make for an excellent lead-up to the GTA Online: Bikers DLC. Originally announced on September 19, the motorcycle-themed update will let you and up to seven of your friends roam around Los Santos and Blaine County in a motorcycle club. The bonuses end on October 3 and are followed by the release of GTA Online: Bikers on October 4.
What do you think of the bonuses and sales for the lead-up to the GTA Online: Bikers DLC?
