The plotline: When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.
Players can switch between the interconnected lives of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as they embark on a series of heists across Los Santos and Blaine County in the biggest, deepest and richest open world experience yet, with game world enhancements that include new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.
Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V also comes with Grand Theft Auto Online, the dynamic and ever-evolving online universe for up to 30 players, and includes all existing gameplay upgrades and content released since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online.
Rise through the ranks to become a CEO of your own criminal empire by trading contraband or form a Motorcycle Club and rule the streets. Pull off daring co-operative Heists, enter adrenaline-fueled Stunt Races, compete in unique Adversary Modes or create your own content to play and share with the entire GTA community.
Running an Agency alongside Franklin is extra lucrative this week in GTA Online, as Security Contracts are paying double GTA$. And players who have yet to start their Agency career are also in luck; Agencies can be purchased at a 25% discount all week long.

Showcase Your Skills as an Operator and Earn Double GTA$ on Security Contracts
Owning and managing an Agency isn’t all studio visits and rubbing elbows with the nouveau riche — a lot of the work is hands-on. Your clientele won’t always be A-list, but they are paying customers nonetheless.
Whether it’s rescuing a client being held hostage at gunpoint, liquidizing counterfeit bills with sticky bombs, or recovering stolen jewelry, Security Contracts require versatility and a cool head under pressure.
Whatever the ask may be, these Freemode missions can be launched from the computer in your Agency — you’ll need to complete at least one before Franklin trusts you with the VIP Contract and satisfying a few clients will open the doors to Payphone Hits down the line.
You’ll earn Double GTA$ for completing any and all Security Contracts this week, while completing any single Security Contract will land you the Bravado Tee. You’ll need to partner up with Franklin and purchase an Agency of your own to take part in the activities above — luckily, Agencies are 25% off this week and you can spiff it up with your preferred Art Style for 30% off too.
3X GTA$ and RP on Smuggler Sell Missions
Sitting on a hoard of deadstock cargo in your Hangar? Don’t let it sit there and gather dust. Offloading precious contraband in Smuggler Sell Missions between now and March 2 will net you a tripled payday.
3X GTA$ and RP on Air Races
Some contests can only be settled at elevated altitudes. Take flight high above (or just barely above) the city of Los Santos this week in Rockstar Created Air Races. Daring pilots of all stripes will earn 3X GTA$ and RPfor competing, win or lose, all week long.
2X GTA$ and RP on Flight School Activities
Pilotry is an art like any other: practice makes perfect, so make sure to clear some room in your busy schedule to visit the Flight School at LSIA. Intrepid students and experienced airmen and women will earn 2X GTA$ and RP on all Flight School activities and exercises for the next seven days.
2X GTA$ and RP on Trap Door
Trap Door is claustrophobic blood sport at its finest: armed teams compete for a spot on a rapidly dwindling platform high above the waves of the Pacific. Killing opponents forces them to respawn in areas with just seconds to escape to safety. Whether you come out on top or tumble to your doom in the deep, all competitors walk away with 2X GTA$ and RP this week.
This Week’s Prize Ride: Dewbauchee Rapid GT Classic
Are you a competitive member of the LS Car Meet? Lucky for you, placing Top 3 in the Street Race Series 5 times over the next week will land you a Dewbauchee Rapid GT Classic to customize and push to the edge of the engineering envelope.
Those looking for a new set of wheels can pay a visit to the Test Track inside the LS Car Meet and give the BF Weevil, Grotti Visione, and Lampadati Cinquemila a trial run between the columns, whip around the painted circuit, challenge friends and foes to Scrambles, and more.
This Week on the Podium: The Vapid Retinue
Make a stop in the lobby of The Diamond Casino & Resort to spin the Lucky Wheel and walk away with GTA$, RP, clothing, accessories, snacks, and all manner of mystery prizes. This week’s podium top prize is the Vapid Retinue — a blue-collar workhorse that made a mid-life career switch and became one of the most vaunted rally vehicles of all time. Let it be known that it’s never too late to reinvent yourself.
