Rockstar Announces GTA Online Smuggler’s Run; Details Upcoming New Content For This Fall


Rockstar Games has announced the next big update for GTA Online – entitled Smuggler's Run.

Arriving next week on August 29, Smuggler’s Run is small nod to the developer’s PS2 game from 2000 which bares the same name. According to Rockstar, “Smuggler’s Run opens up the air corridors above Los Santos and Blaine County, providing new business opportunities while introducing a range of planes, choppers and even ultralights as highly viable options for transporting criminal cargo across the state – simultaneously opening up some creative new methods of dispatching any rival gangs along the way.”\

In addition to announcing the Smuggler’s run update, Rockstar has also provided some details about new content arriving in GTA V’s online mode this fall.

New modes will be added later this year alongside new vehicles and holiday celebrations. Expect new aircrafts and cars, new competitive Adversary Modes, and some fun Halloween stuff.
