Fans of Grand Theft Auto V‘s popular multiplayer mode were treated to new content last week with the launch of the free Lowriders Custom Classics DLC for GTA Online. Addressing several known issues that users had discovered in the game, Rocksatar Games also released a new title update for GTA V in addition to adding new vehicles, weapons, and customization items to the game.
As with many game patches, Update 1.33 for Grand Theft Auto V was intended to fix game bugs and improve overall performance and stability. While detailing the patch on their official support website, however, Rockstar Games also revealed that the update also introduced a few new features to GTA Online that should help improve players’ experience inside the game.
“Ghosted to Player is a new option on the Wasted screen that appears under the following criteria: Player X kills you 3 times within 5 minutes [and] You have not damaged Player X during those 3 kills.”
“This option can be found alongside the Respawn, Passive and One on One Deathmatch options and is triggered via R1/RB and displays as ‘Go Ghosted to Player X’. Once this option has been selected, you and Player X will be ghosted to each other and each other only for two minutes.”
“The Contact Mission unlock system has been updated. Players now have two ways in which Contact Missions can be unlocked to allow for direct launching from the start menu: Reach the requisite rank for the Mission (This unlocks the Mission for that character slot only) [or] Play the Mission via an invite (This unlocks the Mission for the whole profile).”
A few other minor features were also included as part of Update 1.33. Players can now select to not wear shoes while saving wardrobes and the stock at Ammu-Nation stores have been reorganized. Those running their own criminal organizations can also launch VIP work and challenge events directly from their Yacht. Yacht owners will also be granted a free relocation if they are unable to correctly move their Yacht to the desired area for any reason. This will help keep down the usage costs that come alongside the already expensive boat.
Update 1.33 is out now for GTA V across all current-gen platforms.
