Rockstar Games has finally rolled out the most awaited 1.17 update for GTA Online, which also features the Last Team Standing (LTS) Update with a host of powerful weapons, high-performance vehicles and the all new Creator mode for a riveting gameplay experience.
The LTS DLC brings 10 new jobs spread out across Los Santos and Blaine County, besides some interesting gameplay enhancements with improved matchmaking capability.
Trigger-happy gamers can now enjoy the new Heavy Shotgun with deadly stopping power that is tailor-made for Close Quarters Combat (CQC). Meanwhile, the new Marksman Rifle stands out for its lethal accuracy with long range targets.
Burn the roads of Los Santos and Blaine County as you ride two new motorcycles, the Shitzu Hakuchou sport bike and the cruiser Lampdati Furore GT, or take off on a long trip with the new LCC Innovation chopper.
Much to the joy of GTA fans, the LTS update offers a new option for creating original GTA Online jobs for Capture mode and Last Team Standing jobs via LTS Creator tool.
Discerning gamers can now enjoy the ability to add new rounds to existing jobs or raise stakes with Rockstar Created LTS, Captures and Versus Missions.
In addition, it is now possible to set Forced Weapon for any mission wherein players are limited to a specific weapon for the entire duration of the match.
Another noteworthy feature is that players can now find the most popular jobs in GTA Online, which are being up-voted and globally synchronised via job voting screens.
This feature also helps gamers to find like-minded people or make on-call matching with their friends for activities such as Arm-Wrestling, Darts or Golf, while raising the betting metre's maximum limit from GTA$2500 to GTA$10,000.
Those who wish to install the latest update on their consoles can do so by starting up GTA 5 and launching the online mode on PS3 or Xbox 360. This brings a prompt to install the latest 1.17 update.
