Despite GTA 6 being well into production, Rockstar is clearly still giving GTA Online a lot of support. That's evident by taking a look at all the new content coming in the Los Santos Drug Wars expansion.
It's a two-part expansion which also adds on the existing narrative of GTA Online. After Franklin reappeared in The Contract, this time around we'll meet up with Nervous Ron, Trevor's friend in Blaine County.
Rockstar is still playing coy on the specifics of the first part of this expansion, but we fortunately do know what sort of additions to look out for.
Part one of Los Santos Drug Wars will include a new business enterprise, vehicles, missions, and upgrades to level up your character. With the expansion so close to releasing, though, it won't be long until we see exactly what those are.
Specifically, we know that the first half of Los Santos Drug Wars will include new story-driven missions mostly focused on Nervous Ron and Blaine County. You can also look out for at least three new cars, as well as some behind-the-scenes tweaks like the addition of ray-tracing on next-gen consoles. The new cars are as follows:
- Declasse Tahoma Coupe
- MTL Brickade 6x6
- Classique Pontoon Coupe
