'GTA Online' Finally Gives Players The Ability To Fully Change Their Character's Appearance

In this week's new content update for Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games introduced plenty of new features designed to keep wealthy players engaged in a series of high-profile car theft missions that promise big payouts to those who can successfully run their own vehicle exportation syndicate. However, the Import/Export DLC also brought lots of other features that GTA Online fans might have missed in the update's long official announcement such as tons of new customization options.

While players have always been able to customize their playable characters in Grand Theft Auto Online by changing their hairstyle and clothing, users couldn't actually change fundamental details about their in-game avatars until now. As Rockstar Games revealed in the patch notes for this week's update, players can now give their characters a full makeover thanks to a new appearance change system.

The new feature can be accessed from the GTA Online's quick menu and will cost players $100,000. The appearance change will grant players access to the same options that were present at character creation, giving fans the chance to make changes to their overall facial structure, skin tone, and more. Unfortunately, there is still one limitation to the new makeover system. Despite being a popular request among fans, users still aren't able to alter the gender of their Grand Theft Auto Online personas. In fact, a character's sex is the only thing that now can't be changed after an avatar is initially created.

In addition to the big appearance change feature, the Import/Export update also includes more traditional ways for users to further customize their GTA Online character by adding a large number of new clothing items. This week's update brought more than 300 new outfit pieces and a dozen new tattoo options to Grand Theft Auto V's popular online mode.

All of these new ways of creating unique looks for GTA Online characters are in addition to the new modes that were also introduced as the core feature of the Import/Export update. The DLC adds expensive new vehicle garages to CEO offices that give players the opportunity to steal high-end vehicles and sell them for huge profits. Owners of these garages can also embark on a series of new co-op missions in Grand Theft Auto Online.

"In Import/Export, CEOs will get their hands dirty alongside their Organization, stealing and dealing in "liberated" luxury vehicles with Vehicle Cargo while Executive Offices get a facelift with the newest Executive Garage housing up to 60 vehicles. And tap into rare, highly unusual, and federally prohibited Special Vehicles that are capable of streamlining your corporate misdeeds in explosive new ways."
Since the new 60-car garages require players to first own a CEO office, Rockstar Games tried to help players prepare for the newly released feature by holding a sale on executive business spaces. As the Inquisitr reported last week, all CEO office properties were recently half priced this past weekend, giving fans one final opportunity to be ready for the Import/Export update.

In order to help celebrate the release of this week's new free DLC, Rockstar Games is also running a special event for GTA Online which features in-game discounts and bonus rewards for the game's new Adversary Mode which was also released alongside the update.

"Keep your Organization humming with strategic discounts on Bullet Proof Tires, Car Armor, Body Armor and all Ammo until December 19th. And pick up the luxurious SuperVolito or SuperVolito Carbon at 25% off for quick take-offs from your Executive Office's helipad. Take advantage of Double GTA$ and RP in the new Turf Wars Adversary Mode, which features teams of vehicles battling each other for territorial control over tiles and weapons."

Do you plan on buying a new CEO vehicle garage in GTA Online or do you think the new feature is too expensive?
