Rockstar has just released details on their upcoming Grand Theft Auto 5 “Beach Bum Update DLC. It has been revealed that there will be new missions for GTA Online, new weapons and vehicles for both story mode and online and much more. The Beach Bum DLC will be part of the 1.06 update and will be available to players next week.
The official launch date for the Beach Bum DLC is November 19th as part of the 1.06 update for the game. The Beach Bum Update will bring with it a new collection of outfits, some new weapons and vehicles and new missions in GTA Online.
The new “Jobs” or missions in the update are explained below:
“Grass Route II” (Race): In this sequel to the original popular Grass Route Race, go off-road in an epic heat starting on the North bank of the Zancudo River through the treacherous wetlands with a triumphant finish on the beach in North Chumash.
“Survival on Del Perro Pier” (Survival): Skip the ferris wheel for a deadlier kind of thrill ride as you take on waves of relentless enemies at this beachfront attraction.
“View of Vespucci” (Parachuting): This leap sends you from 2,980 feet, down towards Vespucci Beach, weaving through palm trees to land on the basketball courts of the rec center. If you’ve got skills, it’s possible to freefall through the first few checkpoints before even opening your chute.
“Paleto Beach” (Team Deathmatch): The locals complain that not a lot happens in this sleepy town, so do them a favor and wake ’em up with a barrage of gunfire exchanged between you and a rival team. This Team Deathmatch takes place right on the romantic shoreline for 4-8 players.
“Sundae Driving” (Bike Race): Sure to be a new fan-favorite motorbike race, menace Vespucci Beach on your two-wheel rocket, taking breakneck corners as you try and best the competition.
There are 4 new vehicles in the update as well. These vehicles include the BF Bifta dune buggy, the rugged Canis Kalahari off-road truck, the Bravado Paradise beach camper van and the Speeder Speedboat. These vehicles will be available in both online and offline story modes.
There are two new weapons in the update. They are the SNS Pistol and the “brutal” broken bottle. Both weapons will be available at any “Ammu-Nation” location in GTA online and will be added into each character’s inventory in story mode.
New Customization Options
There are new customization options in the Beach Bum update that allow users to tailor their GTA Online character “with all new beach-ready customization options including stylish board shorts, neon surfer attire, wild tribal tattoos, shaggy hair for that West Coast”.
