GTA Online is expanding once again next week with its release of the Executives and Other Criminals update. Rockstar Games clearly think that players work hard for their illegally obtained money so they should be rewarded for it. Now GTA audiences world-wide can enjoy blowing through their nest egg by indulging in the most opulent lifestyle the game has to offer. Rent some new customizable apartments or even live it up with the celebrity elite in Vinewood Hills. Of course, if a new home isn’t enough style players can always purchase a “Super Yacht” decked out with a helipad, a hot tub and a full staff.
We know it took a lot of grinding, hustling and generally life threatening endeavors to get to such status so we appreciate the rewards that should come along with being a criminal mega-boss. But you better sell all your stock shares, and cash out of all those real estate investments (with their meager returns) if you wish to live it up with the new, elite execs. With the Executives and Other Criminals update players can create their own entirely illegal organizations and use them to access a whole new set of co-op Jobs, challenges and special abilities.
What we find most exciting is the ability to hire other online players to work on your team of bodyguards. Even “take care of them” when they get out of line. Though the bodyguard life might seem innately tough to most, it too has some perks. Players who sign up to work for execs and crime bosses will earn regular paychecks, plus reputation points and some sought after stat boosts.
And of course, since this is Grand Theft Auto we’re talking about, players must realize that criminal organizations can obviously duke it out in freemode. Build a notorious reputation as the fiercest crime syndicate this world has ever seen! The new adversary mode called extraction, pits teams of players highly trained in body-guarding against each other. Each team must locate and rescue an exec from a downed jet before a hit team shows up and does their dirty work.
All of this and more will be available by December 15th, 2015 in GTA Online’s Executives and Other Criminals update.
