The Background update on August 17
The latest major update that GTA online has received is on August 17, 2021, from Rockstar games. Although the update mainly focuses on addressing specific issues, Rockstar has added a new car to the game.
The last major update called “Los Santos Turners” was released in July 2020, with new content related to turners and ten cars. Furthermore, there were weekly updates that gradually brought seven new cars. The three vehicles’ that Rockstar previously introduced were as follows:-
- Pfister Comet S2
- Vapid Dominator ASP
- Emperor Vectre
However, the new update has come with Karin Previon as the Prize Ride vehicle. Additionally, the update also contains specific patches to the glitches that were annoying players a lot. It disables some particular phone contacts during the test track.
The Los Santos Turner update brought a major glitch called “the car duplication glitch,” which some players described as “giving cars to friends.” The players could quickly achieve this by manipulating the game’s mechanics, which allowed them to call Martin, Simeon, and Gerald from the test track.
The players could duplicate a friend’s vehicle, although they list one during the procedure after following some complex steps. This update has patched the glitch, and players won’t call these contacts while inside the test track.
Karin Previon has also been added as a Prize Ride car at the Los Santos Car meeting. Although, it isn’t quite sure whether the players would be able to purchase it from the store, with the usual price of it being around $1,490,000
Rockstar has also added three new podium vehicles’ inside the podium list, which includes:-
- Adder for $1,000,000
- Lectro for $997,500- $750,000
- Outlaw for $1,268,000 – $951,000
Players can now also unlock a trade price of up to $1,117,500 through a similar procedure as with various other turners. You would have to rank up the reputation levels at the LSCM. Each five reputation level would unlock a trade price for one of the podium vehicles mentioned above.
