The publisher of “Grand Theft Auto 5” has revealed some new details in regards to the extension of being able to earn double the amount of money and reputation points in “GTA Online.” According to a report from Gamespot on April 12, Rockstar Games announced that they will be continuing the same event that were launched to celebrate the new capture jobs update in the multiplayer mode of “GTA 5.” The original promotional period was originally scheduled to end this past Sunday.

However, Rockstar Games decided to extend the bonuses until April 20. As a result, players can earn twice as much money and reputation points while playing the capture jobs in “GTA Online” for an extra week. The new match type is based on the capture the flag modes found in other shooters with several “GTA 5” gameplay elements mixed in. You can find an image of the mode from the Rockstar Games Twitter page on the top of this article.

The capture jobs are the first of several updates being planned for “GTA 5” for this spring. The publisher is also arranging to add the “High Life Update,” which adds new DLC apartments as well as the ability to own two properties simultaneously. Finally, the long awaited “GTA Online” heists should be made available as well.

The multiplayer mode of “GTA 5” has a lot more players when compared to other video games. Rockstar Games previously revealed that the fifth main “Grand Theft Auto” title sold 32.5 million units on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Over 70 percent also logged into “GTA Online” at least once.

The community could be expanded even further with the rumored releases of “GTA 5” on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Several retailers are listing the new versions with summer release dates. However, the publisher has not yet made any announcements in regards to releasing the popular title on computers and the two next-generation platforms.
