New update for GTA Online Show “Los Santos Tuners” A New ways to collect and listen to music, letting you find it Audio tracks are scattered all over Los Santos, and create customizable playlists of your favorite radio stations.
While the “Los Santos Tuners” update is largely based on creating new social spaces and tasks around car customization, there’s also plenty of new music content. Moodymann – a real DJ added to GTA Online with the ‘Cayo Perico Heist’ update – is back in this new update with the name Kenny, and as he gives you tasks to complete, he will also give his musical expertise as a bonus.
For the first time ever, GTA Online sees media holdings scattered all over Los Santos which, once found, adds new music to in-game radios. These include the “Kenny’s Backyard Boogie Mix” (which Rockstar Games describes as a “powerful mix of house, soul, hip-hop, and more”). Some of these tracks were released in GTA Online before they were listened to on other media.
You will also be able to find files Four soundtracks from Rockstar Games’ new brand, CircoLoco – Each of them contains the actual album CircoLoco Monday Dreamin. Finding the four tracks of CircoLoco unlocks you a mix that combines the 20 music collected into a continuous mix called “CLR Launch Party” by Seth Troxler. This is another step taken by Rockstar to implement music in the world of GTA, after in-game nightclubs or concerts by real in-game DJs. It will be interesting to see if Rockstar Games continues this momentum.
Of course, as more and more music is added to the game, the use of in-game radio becomes more and more complex as the additions continue. That’s why Rockstar Games also allows players to create a playlist for the first time, giving them easy access to their favorite music.
The Los Santos Tuners update launches on July 20 for free, adding new vehicles, a social space dedicated to Los Santos cars, missions featuring new vehicles and types of racing, and more. In the next few weeks we’ll see until more new missions arrive, Kart Krash: Full Auto – a violent kart mode – and a new light arcade game.
GTA Online is also preparing for a next-generation console update next November, and Rockstar has also promised “surprises” regarding the 20th anniversary of GTA 3.
