GTA Online’s weekly update brings more teases for what’s next

This week we're treated to a nude dude on the beach and a briefcase

November 19, 2020 Rockstar has released an official teaser which shows off some new locations – oooh!

GTA Online‘s weekly update typically means buying cars on the cheap and earning more dosh on existing tasks. That’s still the case, but recently oddities have been popping up around Los Santos ahead of GTA Online’s next update, which is supposed to be coming sometime this year.

Last week, players got an in-game text explaining that the Diamond Casino is undergoing construction work. If you travel there, you’ll notice one of the side entrances is boarded up. This week’s tease is slightly more unusual, though, and involves a somewhat nude dude laid out on the beach with a wound on the back of his head. There’s a briefcase near him, too, but you can’t interact with it. He doesn’t appear in one place, either, as players have reported finding him at various locations around the west coast of Los Santos. That can be anywhere from Vespucci to the airport.

Rockstar followed this up with a swift clip on Twitter that confirms the man as a John Doe. More interestingly, though, the clip shows several stills of a new location. It’s a brief tease, but it shall sustain me for many weeks.

We’ll have to wait and see what it all leads to, but in the meantime, there are plenty of activities to do this week to fatten your wallet. Land Races and Superyacht missions are offering three times the experience and dosh they usually do. If you’ve not bought yourself a yacht yet, then the good news is that they’re 30% off right now, which includes costs for upgrading and modifying them.

The GTA 5 podium car has also changed around, as it does, and is now the Autarach. Rockstar has released its official update on its newswire that details everything new, but you can see it on Reddit and Twitter, too.
