Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series

New Content – PS4, Xbox One and PC Only

A new Race Series that consists of ten Races that feature the new Declasse Hotring Sabre has been added to GTA Online:

  • Hotring Circuit (1-30 Players)
    • It’s the moment every stock car Racer lives for. You accelerate into the corner, the track banks up to a near vertical, and somehow you’re held in place by a combination of pulverizing downforce and hysterical fear of death. Now throw in a few turbo strips and a wildly uneven surface, and you can really test that will to live.

Five high-end vehicles have been added to GTA Online:

  • Vapid GB200
  • Vulcar Fagaloa
  • Declasse Hotring Sabre
  • Overflod Entity XXR
  • Cheval Taipan

Seven Classic Racing Suit Outfits have been added to clothes shops in GTA Online.

New Features / Updates – PS4, Xbox One and PC Only

Multiple additions and changes have been made to the Creator:

  • A checkpoint option to have aircraft spawn in VTOL or Hover mode has been added to the Race Creator.
  • The Creator Prop limit has been increased from 150 props and 20 dynamic props to 200 props and 20 dynamic props.
  • The ‘Weaponized Vehicle’ class has been added to the Race Creator and contains multiple existing vehicles.

Insurance premiums for Weaponized Vehicles are now capped at $10k instead of $20k.

New item stars now no longer appear for various vehicle modifications.

Changes have been made to the way that Kill/Death ratio is updated in response to deaths resulting from use of the ‘Kill Yourself’ Interaction Menu option.

The damage increase given by Hollow Point Rounds against unarmored targets has been reduced when used with the Heavy Revolver Mk II.
