GTA Online Beach Bum DLC launches next Tuesday

Rockstar has announced that Grand Theft Auto Online’s Beach Bum DLC will launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on Tuesday, November 19 for free.

The free DLC pack will add a wide variety of new jobs including beach-themed Races, Deathmatches, Parachutes, Last Team Standings, Survivals and Gang Attacks along with four new vehicles, including the BF Bifta dune buggy, Canis Kalahari off-road truck, Bravado Paradise beach camper van and Speeder speedboat. All the new vehicles will be made available to everyone at no extra in-game cost and will be available to order through the in-game website. The vehicles will also be available to players in Story mode. Two new weapons are also being added to the game in the form of the “compact yet deadly” SNS Pistol and a new Broken Bottle melee weapon which will be purchasable from any Ammu-Nation store in both GTA Online and Story Mode.

If that wasn’t enough, Rockstar is also adding in new clothing for players to kit their online avatars out in, including stylish board shorts, neon surfer attire, wild tribal tattoos and shaggy hair.

The DLC will automatically be added to GTA Online via the 1.06 update on November 19.

Rockstar stated, “This is just the first of many new content updates we’re working on for Grand Theft Auto Online in the weeks and months ahead.” They also hinted to stay tuned for upcoming story mode DLC, as well as a wide range of new content to keep an eye out for.

“Please stay tuned here at the Newswire for word on the forthcoming Content Creator, full on cooperative Heists, and GTA Online’s take on Capture the Flag - plus info on some exciting new Story Mode updates as well. We’ll have new info to share on all of this very soon.”
