As previously reported, players can upgrade themselves into becoming VIPs which will result in a lot of benefits and advantages such as recruiting own bodyguards, doing new challenges, and being able to access adversary modes.

When it comes to weapons, there are two new items called Heavy Revolver and Switchblade, each with VIP and Bodyguard variants. The two have been long speculated by fans with some players even leaking a possible render of what the gadgets could look like.

Meanwhile, there are also several vehicles included such as two helicopters named Buckingham SuperVolito and Buckingham SuperVolito Carbon which are both luxury models and equipped with internal Internet system and bottles of champagne; five boats Nagasaki Dinghy, Speedophile Seashark, Pegassi Speeder, Lampadati Toro, Shitzu Tropic; and new armored executive automobiles that have bullet-resistant glass.

Moreover, the update comes with an interesting feature of using the player’s mugshot or selfie as his or her own Social Club Avatar. Aside from using it as the image for GTA online character, the photo also works in Story Mode. Gamers can even choose those that were already saved in Snapmatic Selfies or Mugshots under “Social Club Avatar Settings.” However, those taken before the month of May this year and those with memes may not appear in the selection.

The Arts and Downloads section of “GTA V” website also offers new creative works in line with the DLC that can be used as wallpaper, background, and avatar sizes.
