GTA Online content updates will continue into the next console generation

Sony opening their big E3 pressblast last night with the news that Grand Theft Auto V is coming to PlayStation 5 was perhaps a damp squib for them but good news for us on PC. With the game now confirmed for next-gen consoles, Rockstar have committed to continuing content updates for them - and PC. They're also making a standalone version of GTA Online, though…

Feature: Red-footed Booby to Leghorn Rooster

All 234 animals in Red Dead Redemption 2 reviewed (part 2)

As I said last time, my favourite thing about Red Dead Redemption 2 is the fact you can treat the game as an extremely perilous wildlife-spotting sim, with new creatures to behold every time you enter a new corner of the Cowboy's grotty, whiskey-stained world. Some 234 creatures, in fact. And as a mark of respect, largely to the concept of animals but also to…

GTA Online crashed so Epically this weekend that someone built a robot to retry connecting

Rockstar have finally managed to get GTA Online back up, after a weekend where the game was basically unplayable due to overwhelming numbers of new players. The Epic Games Store is giving GTA V away free at the moment, see. So many people came to claim it that Epic's own servers collapsed during at the start the giveaway, so I guess it's only fair that…

Looks like Grand Theft Auto 5 will be free on the Epic Games Store today

Keep your eye on the Epic Games Store today: the next free game they're giving away is almost certainly Grand Theft Auto V. That's a real solid get for free. Epic have been playing it coy, teasing a mystery game instead of announcing the next one as they usually do, then they seemingly blew the surprise by tweeting the announcement early. Welp. The freebie should…

Ride piggy-back on colossal boars in this Red Dead Redemption 2 mod

Y'all still riding horses out there? It's 1899, son, get with the times. A new, in-development Red Dead Redemption 2 mod has opened the stables to all manner of wild bears, boars cougars and more. After all, there ain't a sight in the West more terrifying than a grim outlaw with a fistful of bullets, nothing to lose, and 500 pounds of furious pork under…

GTA Online alien suits are free this week, fuelling the green vs. purple wars

Inviting chaos into GTA Online, Rockstar today started giving away free green and purple alien bodysuits. Over the past few weeks, Los Santos has been invaded by violent aliens. First, gangs of players dressed as green aliens were jumping unsuspecting people with baseball bats and pool cues. Then, gangs of purple aliens started fighting the green aliens in sprawling street brawls. But the invasion was…

Feature: American Alligator to Giant Boar

All 234 animals in Red Dead Redemption 2 reviewed (part 1)

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game drowning in details, with its attempt to capture a simulated vision of an American west that's been gone for 120 years, down to every last shell casing, spittoon stain and sweat-crusted saddlebag. Probably my favourite thing about it all, however, is the obsessive, noachian fervour with which the natural world has been catalogued. There are some 234 animals…

GTA Online is giving players free cash – enough to buy an alien suit

Play GTA Online any time during May and Rockstar will wang you $500,000 of in-game cash within a few days. While that's not a huge amount of money on the scale of things, but it's a decent chunk for doing nothing. It won't buy you a new business or a top-end car but could help you save up. Or... you could use that free cash…

Now purple aliens are fighting GTA Online’s green alien beatdown gangs

The hottest craze amongst GTA Online players is donning a green alien suit, picking up a baseball bat, and riding around with their alien friends in a van looking for people to beat up. In a game where death usually comes from some walloper on a hoverbike raining missiles, it's delightfully silly. But aliens could never hold the streets of Los Santos forever. While attempts…

GTA Online’s latest craze is alien gangs in vans delivering surprise beatings

Aliens are terrorising the streets of Los Santos, bursting out of vans to beat players to death with baseball bats, pool cues, and their little green fists then fleeing the scene. This isn't a new GTA Online expansion, it's the hot new craze amongst players. Over the past fortnight, as videos of alien van gangs have spread online, more and more players have bought the…

Rockstar’s crunch culture is changing, developers say

Remember when Red Dead Redemption 2 first launched and everyone was abuzz as Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser proudly proclaimed 100-hour work weeks a necessary evil? Ah, too many horrific things have happened since then and you'd forgotten, hadn't you? Well here's a less awful thing then. According to current Rockstar developers, it seems that the company's crunch culture is changing. For the better, to be clear.

Turn into animals in GTA Online by taking peyote this week

I've found myself oddly envious of pigeons lately, watching them strut around without a care, and I feel fully vindicated after becoming a pigeon myself in GTA Online. For funsies, Rockstar have re-enabled the peyote plants which let players transform into random animals, from dogs and deer to pigs and pigeons. My favourite so far is becoming a cougar, burly enough to bowl pedestrians over…

Here’s how game developers are handling the Covid-19 outbreak

Over the last week or so, game developers and publishers around the world have been announcing their action plans amidst the Covid-19 outbreak. Bungie have offered advice to other companies, Ubisoft said Rainbow Six Siege might miss a few patches, and many others have sent their employees home, dev kits in hand, to make sure production plods along, all the while doing their part to…

Watch out: GTA Online’s most reviled griefmobile is cheap this week

On the highways and flyways of GTA Online, no vehicle more clearly flags a player as a potential dickhead than the Oppressor Mk II. This jet-powered hoverbike can whizz round streets, fly high over the city, and rain homing missiles, making it a top pick for the sort of wrong'un who wants to grief everyone. Bad news, gang: the Oppressor Mk II has a 30%…

GTA Online has added Formula One races, and it’s a bloodbath

A legally-distinct series of races which are definitely not Formula One featuring no official F1 vehicles arrived in GTA Online, and it's as messy as you'd expect from an open-world murder simulator. Up to 16 murderers can compete in the new Open Wheel Races, whipping around at tight tracks at 120mph while fighting their honed instincts which scream to ram and kill everyone. At least,…

GTA Online’s Formula 1 racing will start next week

A series of Formula 1-y races are coming to GTA Online on February 27th, Rockstar announced today. I say 'Formula 1' because that's the one I know, but I suppose the upcoming Open Wheel Race Series could be inspired by F2, or IndyCar, or... look, it's those weird cars shaped like fighter jets, okay. While those races don't start until next Thursday, crimepeople do have…

Grand Theft Auto IV will return to Steam with no Games For Windows Live or multiplayer

After disabling the option to buy Grand Theft Auto IV in January, Rockstar now say 2008's open-world murder simulator will return to sale in March with a few changes. Microsoft's awful Games For Windows Live technogubbins is being removed because it caused the trouble in the first place, and that's great news. It seems some folks will also receive the expansions or base game for…

After years of driving wacky novelties in GTA Online, I finally bought a good car and realised I’ve been a huge fool

This week in GTA Online, the shiny Dewbauchee Vagner supercar has a tidy 35% discount. I've heard it's a good car and, being flush with cash from the recent giveaways, I thought I'd treat myself to one. Oh! Yes, that's a good car. That's a really good car. That's great. I've never driven a good car before. If I'd known GTA Online's expensive cars were…
