GTA Online Stripping Cheaters Of Funny Money

It is a shame that Rockstar’s focus since launching Grand Theft Auto V has been GTA Online [official site] rather than any sort of singleplayer expansion, especially given that the sandbox multiplayer mode has been rife with cheating. Well, at least Rockstar have started cracking down in a new way. They’re starting removing “illegitimately gained” imaginary money from players’ accounts, draining the bank accounts of naughty people. They’ll also be wiping the progress of folks who get suspended.

Red Dead Redemption 2: The Reveal Trailer

Update: it’s aired! Full YouTube trailer below. It is, er, brief. But very pretty and pleasantly tranquil.

I’ll be honest: I’m writing the bones of this post before the hopefully below trailer’s actually aired (in five minutes from the time of posting), because that’s how the internet works these days. So, for all I know, all the Red Dead Redemption 2 [official site] ad consists of is Sam Houser screaming “screw PC gaming and the horse it rode in on” at the screen for 68 seconds, but hell, let’s be optimistic.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Announced, PC Not Confirmed

As expected, Rockstar have strapped on their shooting iron and saddled up to announce Red Dead Redemption 2 [official site]. 2010’s Red Dead Redemption, an open-world cowboy ’em up in the modern Grand Theft Auto style, is perhaps my favourite Rockstar game so this is splendid news.

In a disappointing but unsurprising turn, no, Rockstar haven’t said anything about a PC version yet; only console releases are confirmed. I’m not worried, mind, as it took Rockstar ages to talk about Grand Theft Auto V on Windows then we received a fine PC version – one which rarely leaves the Steam top 10. Surely it’ll come here too.

Rockstar Are Teasing A Red Dead Redemption Sequel

For PC folks, Red Dead Redemption is the lost Rockstar game. It’s also the Rockstar game that people seem to love the most and that can seem like a case of absence making the heart grow fonder, given that it is sequel-less and unavailable on our platform of choice. All of that may be coming to an end.

Rumours of a remaster or sequel have been doing the rounds for a while but Rockstar’s twitter feed appears to have confirmed that something Red Dead related is due to be announced. Sequel? Remaster? Multiplayer spin-off? Whatever it is, let’s hope it comes to PC.

The Other 1%: Grand Theft Auto Online Biker Update Live

Start honking your hog and pumping your guts: bikers have arrived in Grand Theft Auto Online [official site]. Multiplayer crimepoeple can now form and join motorcycle clubs – and not the polite kind who get together over tea and biscuits to write their self-printed newsletter. No, these are rude, noisy motorcycle clubs, doing all those crimes you see on television. Along with new bike-y activities, the Bikers update brings new bikes to ride and new clothes and cosmetic options to make yourself look rowdy.

GTA Online’s Biker Gangs Will Roll Out In October

Motorcycles, aka the horses of the highway, will be seeing a lot more action in GTA Online [official site] following Rockstar’s upcoming update. We already told you about what’s expected in this addition – the ability to start an 8-person motor club, new competitive and co-op modes, new bikes, weapons, clothes and tattoos – but you didn’t listen. You just twisted the throttle like a petulant John Connor and pretended not to hear us. Well, I’m here to tell you that the update is happening on Octo – oh for heavens sake.

GTA Online Will Go Hog-Wild In Bikers Update

“It’s not really a place, it’s a feeling,” biker icon James Hurley once said of his dream destination. “Sometimes riding at night, I punch off the headlights and roll the throttle in just rocket blind into the dark.”

But some bikers are dirty boys. They cuss, smoke cigarettes, refuse to tuck their shirts, and don’t even kiss their mothers goodbye. These rough tough scruffs congeal into gangs, roaring down the highway honking their hogs and yelling e.g. “Hey you, go on, get out of it!” Don’t you find that secretly thrilling? If so, watch for the next major Grand Theft Auto Online [official site] update, which will focus on bikers and bike gangs.
