GTA 5 Online Update: 3x money on Arena Modes and the Tempesta Casino car is back

Thursday 2nd April 2020

Grand Theft Auto 5 has published its weekly update to GTA Online, and you know what that means: more cars, bonuses and GTA$ to grab.

A brand new GTA Online weekly update has dropped this morning and until Rockstar drops another big content drop for the game, which isn't likely to be for a few months, it's another duff week.

For this week, GTA Online is rolling back the clocks to reintroduce some content from the Arena War update.

This includes a variety of discounts on vehicles and properties too. Great if you're looking to save some cash, but for those who have been playing for years, it might be a bit of a dry week, content-wise.

We should learn about the official GTA 5 patch notes from today's update when they're released by Rockstar Games later today on the newswire.

But ahead of time, the games dedicated player base has revealed some of the key changes with this week's new GTA Online weekly patch.

For the full overview of what to expect from this update, take a look below - we'll make sure to keep you updated as soon possible should any more information about the patch comes to light.

GTA Online New vehicle

Once again, it looks like there's no 'new' vehicle to be claimed in the game this week. . At least, that's what we're seeing from the updates published by the community this morning.

There is however a new podium vehicle in the GTA Online Casino to obtain. This week players who spin the casino wheel have the chance of owning the Pegassi Tempesta.

This two-door supercar featured as part of the Import/Export update from back in 2016.

Here's a quick look at the car's description:

"At some point, asking "So how fast it is?" is like asking the guy who just put his fist through your ribs "So how strong are you?" It's not about the speed anymore. It's not about the style, either, because one touch of the gas and it's little more than a blur. You just know that deep down there's an itch only this car can scratch, and you lack any of the personal qualities you'll need to resist." - Legendary Motorsport.

GTA Online Twitch Prime Rewards

At the time of writing, no Twitch Prime or PlayStation Plus bonuses have been announced. However, the recent free GTA$ 1,000,000 for linking your Twitch prime account has now ended.

So maybe, there will be some new discounts coming today?

Though this is likely to be announced in the official newswire post, so stay tuned for updates later today.
