The Next GTA Online Update is All About Planes, Smuggling, and Races

By Zack Zwiezen on at

Grand Theft Auto Online’s next major update is about helping Trevor’s neighbour and paranoid friend, Ron, build a smuggling empire. This new content drops on August 29th, and, as usual, will be free.

Players will gain access to new air vehicles, including older style fighter planes, bombers and even ultralight planes. All of these planes will be customisable and stored in a new hanger.

Smuggler’s Run will also add a new type of stunt race, Transform Races. These new races will span across land, sea and air—meaning that players will have to switch up their vehicles throughout the race. During these races, special checkpoints will instantly transform your vehicle into something new. So you could be driving a car, hit a checkpoint and then start flying a plane. Sounds exciting!
