First GTA Online update since Summer Special revealed – patch notes

Another content update has rolled out in Grand Theft Auto V, following the Summer Special, adding a boat load of new discounts and cash reward bonuses to GTA Online. 

This one might not be as exciting as the actual Summer Update, which landed the week prior, but that was hard to top. Rockstar Games added over a dozen fresh cars across its multiple in-game iFruit stores, meaning members of the community have been riding around in new whips ever since.

We can’t have an update of that size every week, though there’s still some exciting changes to talk about.


There’s a lot to unpack, so let’s jump right into the early patch notes – courtesy of GTA leaker TezFunz2.

GTA Online August 20 update patch notes

Lucky Wheel

Pfister GTA Online
Rockstar Games
This new set of wheels has landed in GTA Lucky Wheel rewards.

There’s always a high priced car on the Lucky Wheel rewards podium. This can be found inside the Diamond Casino, and will feature on it a Pfister 811.

The car usually sells for around $1.13 million in-game, but you could be driving it out of the map’s biggest gambling centre absolutely free of charge, with the right spin.

Featured missions and races

If you own a Super Yacht in GTA Online, you’re going to have a great summer.
