GTA Online Updates To Add Stunts And Contraband

Of course it’s called Cunning Stunts. Grand Theft Auto 5 wouldn’t be a Grand Theft Auto game without the po-faced plot and crass punnery, but I’m pleased that GTA Online is bit-by-bit acknowledging the other side of itself: mainly, that its silliness and not crimes that its players most want to perpetrate within its spaces.

Even as I begin the long process of writing about all of the games I saw and the people I spoke to at GDC, I’ve found a new distraction. The San Andreas Streaming Deer Cam is a live feed of a modded GTA V [official site] that “creates and follows a deer wandering through the fictional state of San Andreas”. The deer “is autonomous and will wander and respond to it’s surroundings, interacting with the existing GTA V artifical intelligence”.
