Grand Theft Auto Online will receive its first add-on content update, the Beach Bum Pack, in early November, Rockstar announced today.

The pack can be used online and through Story Mode. The pack adds all-new beach themed vehicles and new weaponry plus new customization options for your GTA Online character including new tats, hairstyles and more.

It will also add new Jobs, Gang Attacks, Survivals, Last Team Standings, Parachutes, Deathmatches and Races.

The firm is also working on the debut of the first part of the GTA Online Content Creator for release this fall, which will give players the ability to craft, publish, rate and play custom-made Deathmatch and Race Jobs.

Exceptional ones twill get a Rockstar Verified stamp and will be featured them as part of GTA Online Social Club Events.

Both the Content Creator and the Beach Bum Pack are free.

Also starting in November will be the first Grand Theft Auto Online Social Club Event weekends which will bring special rewards and bonuses ranging from limited-edition in-game Event Crate Drops to in-game discount specials. These will also include special new GTA Online live-stream shows hosted by Rockstar at the Social Club Events page and Rockstar Games Twitch page.

Prize pack giveaways of hard to find GTAV gear will also be handed out.

Rockstar announced today that before it issues the GTA$ Stimulus Package money, the team wants to ensure first that game progress loss issues are sufficiently sorted before distributing the GTA$ to everyone.

The developer said it had a few more tweaks and fixes to make in a new title update that will hit sometime next week and then it will distribute the cash.
