Rockstar Games patched “Grand Theft Auto Online” for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on Tuesday with the “I’m Not a Hipster” update. While the update includes new vehicles, clothes, jobs and exploit fixes, it does not contain the long-awaited co-op Heists mode.
The “I’m Not a Hipster” update for “GTA Online” is filled with skinny jeans, retro tees and other “post-ironic” fashion trends that have already seen their day in contemporary culture. While playing dress up is fun, of more interest is seven new vehicles, two new weapons and 12 new jobs.
The new slate of vehicles includes a special level 100-only ride called the Dubsta. It’s a 3-axel truck that seats a crew of six and will make you thankful you don’t have to pay for gas in “GTA Online.” You can also now purchase cars that were previously only available in single-player like the Bravado Buffalo S and the Obey Tailgater.
The two new weapons have a slightly hipster feel to them as they are definitely retro. “GTA Online” will let you purchase a Vintage Pistol and an Antique Cavalry Dagger from Ammu-Nation.
The twelve new “GTA Online” jobs cover a range of different hipster game modes including a compact car race and a battle for party supplies between two condominiums. There are some important fixes as well ranging from how insurance costs are handled to players maximizing their stats illegitimately. Oddly, Rockstar took out the ability to launch your car into the air by driving it into a gate.
Rockstar is now running out of time to make the promised spring 2014 release for the Heist mode that was originally promised for the “GTA Online” launch. The start of summer officially starts on Saturday, June 21 leaving only a few days of spring left.
“GTA Online” typically receives updates on Tuesdays so it would be rare to see the developer release an update by the end of the week. Of course, Rockstar could also just be focused on getting “Grand Theft Auto V” ready for release to the PS4, Xbox One and PC this fall.
