PS3 owners get it alongside the patch, but 360 users need to download it separately
Grand Theft Auto 5 update 1.06 is now available for download on the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms, bringing with it the free Beach Bum DLC on the PS3, while Xbox 360 owners need to get the add-on separately via the Xbox Live Games Store.Update: The full changelog for GTA 5 patch 1.06 is now available.
GTA 5 came out back in September, and throughout the month of October Rockstar tried to solve all the different issues plaguing the game's multiplayer mode, including lots of problems relating to saving progress and having it deleted.
Now, a brand new patch for GTA 5 has just been released by Rockstar for the game's owners on the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms.
On the PS3, the patch includes, besides various bug fixes, the free Beach Bum DLC that brings new jobs, vehicles, weapons, and customization options. On the Xbox 360, GTA 5 owners will have to download the Beach Bum pack separately via the Xbox Games Store for free, as it couldn't be included in the update.
Check out the full list of things included in the Beach Bum add-on for GTA Online below, via the Rockstar Newswire.
JobsThe Beach Bum update will bring a slew of new action-packed Jobs to GTA Online next week. These include new beach-themed Races, Deathmatches, Parachutes, Last Team Standings, Survivals as well as Gang Attacks for those who enjoy a good territorial skirmish.
VehiclesHit the shore with four sand-and-surf-ready vehicles perfect to take on the all new Beach Bum Races and Vehicle Deathmatches: the BF Bifta dune buggy, the rugged Canis Kalahari off-road truck, the Bravado Paradise beach camper van and making a special return to the GTA series, the fast and stylish Speeder speedboat. All four vehicles will be available at no in-game cost, with the land-based vehicles accessible from the southernsanandreassuperautos.com website and the Speeder available via docktease.com on your in-game phone (call Pegasus for delivery). These vehicles are also available in Story Mode for Michael, Trevor and Franklin to enjoy - to access them, visit your garage property and the Marina property for the vehicles and the boat respectively.
New WeaponsExpand your arsenal with two new free weapons - the compact yet deadly SNS Pistol and the brutal new Broken Bottle melee weapon which is quite effective at delivering the appropriate message in up close and personal encounters. Each weapon will be available gratis from any Ammu-Nation location in GTA Online and will be added straight into each of the three characters' inventory in Story Mode.
New Customization OptionsYou'll be able to deck out your GTA Online character with all new beach-ready customization options including stylish board shorts, neon surfer attire, wild tribal tattoos, shaggy hair for that West Coast laissez-faire vibe and more...
Expect to see a full changelog in the near future.
