Valentine’s Day Massacre Special
 
Quote:

The Valentine’s Day Massacre Special, the latest free update to GTA Online that’s coming this Friday features a variety of fun Valentine's themed extras for Story Mode and GTA Online.

NEW WEAPON: GUSENBERG SWEEPER
Nothing says “I love you” quite like the warm wooden grip and cold steel barrel of a Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun. Get it from any Ammu-Nation location in GTA Online (in Story Mode, the Sweeper is automatically deposited into each character's weapon inventory with two full clips and additional ammo can be purchased at Ammu-Nation).

NEW VEHICLE: ALBANY ROOSEVELT
Paint the town red in the classically-inspired Albany Roosevelt. This armored 1920s limousine is perfect for gangsters and their molls. To properly run amok with the new Roosevelt, get in the driver’s seat and let your friends or Crewmates hang off the side, firing and taking out your rivals as you pass them by. The Roosevelt can be accessed from any garage property in Story Mode and is available in GTA Online from the legendarymotorsport.net in-game website.

NEW ATTIRE
Dress to the nines in a host of new double breasted suits and 1920s flapper dresses, or bare it all in sexy undergarments while going incognito with a selection of new masquerade masks. There are also new novelty t-shirts, hats and more available in stores throughout Los Santos, plus a new Flapper Bob hairstyle exclusively for the ladies.

10 NEW JOBS
The Valentine’s Day Massacre also includes 10 new Jobs scattered like the remnants of a broken heart throughout the world of GTA Online, including Deathmatches, a new Parachute Jump and new land, sea and cycling Races.

Everything in the Valentine’s Day Massacre Special will be available for a limited time starting this Friday, but once acquired you will be able to keep them in your inventory for good. We will also have more information soon for other forthcoming GTA Online content updates including the Dangerous Business Pack, Online Heists, an expansion to the Creator tool and lots more.

It's not Heists, but it's something new. The best part is in bold, much better than the Christmas crap!

Update: It's now live!

That would be my favorite bit if we didn't all hear it before :p. I only get excited for what is announced at this point. They've been talking about the Heists forever. Maybe soon though, just maybe....

There's too many rumors and false news flying around that it only makes them look worse from people with big mouths and inaccurate info. I only check the Newswire on Rockstar first and foremost.

I don't even pay attention to "news" unless there is a creditable source to back it up. This goes for everything, not just GTA. However, Rockstar seems to have started the rumors in the first place, they are always bringing up Heists themselves.

And I'm not bitching, just saying I don't care about them at this point until there is an official announcement (more than just "stay tuned"). I will say; after this long of a wait, they better be worth it and free would be nice.

Don't blame you. I dread clicking on any thread/forum that says LEAKED or RUMOR. How about Facts? They work much better lol. I actually got a few confirmed things about Dead Space 2/3 from Steve Papoutsis on Twitter. Dude is very cool.

The Heists being delayed is probably the biggest letdown but they also said it would launch with Online so I sincerely doubt they'll charge for it. The "in-between" stuff they're flinging out currently is acceptable bc at least they're not just sitting on their asses like "we'll get you SOMETHING soon ;)". I like they're TRYING to keep players involved until the big DLC launches.

Trust me, your feels are totally felt :p

True, they keep saying "they're coming", but when? This year?

Exactly! R*, the biggest rumour mill of all!

I think the new clothing items will be the high light for me.

Puppys 02-12-2014 09:41 PM

Woot, more free stuff!

Barad 02-12-2014 09:43 PM

They should've released the Heists itself on Valentines Day. OMG can you see it?

Maybe the "Heists" are just a project name for GTA6?! :p

I wouldn't mind some new clothing either, hell I'll take it all. Speaking of clothing, it kind of surprises me they haven't added a little DLC for some new clothes.

Maybe next Valentines Day? If we're lucky. ;)

On the bright side, it would sure be fun to have a John Dilinger and co. bust into a bank sporting double breasted coats, fadoras and Thompson machine guns when the heists are released.

Dirty130 02-13-2014 07:35 AM

^ I like this! :)

JuSt BLaZe 02-13-2014 12:03 PM

I hope the ALBANY ROOSEVELT has some speed under the hood otherwise I won't get rid of any of my ten sexy rides.

The update has been pushed down already and you have to install it to be compatible, and you get notifications that there are new guns and cars, but you can't see any of it yet.

- There is a good amount of new clothing, the prices vary from a couple hundred to just shy of $10,000 it seems.

It's not Heists, but I'm happy. I'm glad they are still taking care of the game and adding new things for us. Lots of new things to buy, which is nice because I was getting bored!

Doesn't seem to be working. The last major event (Beach Bum) had a lot of issues with it too. Thought they would have fixed it but nope!

We were all able to eventually get in using the retry feature. Also, I remember it being a pain during the Beach Bum Weekend too :(

Keep trying and hopefully you'll get in. Once in, it doesn't seem to kick you, so that's a huge bonus!

JuSt BLaZe 02-13-2014 10:03 PM

Well for the last 30 minutes it's showing SAVING FAILED - UNABLE TO CONNECT TO THE ROCKSTAR GAME SERVICES.

Not a cool start. Buying shit everywhere!

Yeah, that was what some of my friends kept getting. They all got in eventually, much less than 30 minutes. Sorry to hear it's troubling you so much :(

Event Update
 
Not the RP bonues I was hoping for, but whatever. Free lap dances!
Quote:

Grab your partners in crime this weekend for a hot and heavy Valentine's getaway to Los Santos. This Friday February 14th through Monday February 17th, jump into GTA Online to make sure you redeem the limited-time-only Valentine's Day Massacre Specialcontent and also reap four whole days of in-game rewards, discounts and happenings in the Valentine's Weekend Massacre Social Club Online Event. Tailor up in a new double breasted suit or flapper dress from the Valentine's Day Massacre content pack, grab a trusty Gusenberg SMG and pick up your loved ones in an Albany Roosevelt to paint the town red all weekend long.

IN-GAME REWARDS
In addition to the limited-time-only Valentine’s Day Massacre Special content that can only be redeemed between Friday, Valentine’s Day through the end of February (but once redeemed, you can hold on to it for good), we’ve lined up lots of special in-game rewards exclusively for players this weekend to help you paint the town red.
  • Special Event Crate Drops. Make-out big by lurking around some of San Andreas’ most secluded spots such as the secluded beach in North West Blaine County, the Stables, Del Perro Beach, the Observatory Car Park and, of course, the VINEWOOD sign. Special Event Crate Drops will be falling from the skies in those lovers’ lane locations frequently, stuffed with huge RP bonuses, a range of SMGs, and Sticky Bombs to give that special someone some serious separation anxiety.
  • Triple GTA$ payouts for all Sea Races. Cruise the waterways of Los Santos and Blaine County and if you can best your rivals in a Sea Race, your happy ending will be extra sweet with triple the GTA$ payout.
  • Triple RP in Arm Wrestling all weekend. Lock hands, make some awkward eye contact and push for glory and triple the RP.
  • RP bonuses for riding in cars with others will be awarded up to three times as fast, whether you're in a traditional twosome or a full-on ménage.
  • Free cinema tickets all weekend to your choice of date night screenings.
  • Look for love in all the wrong places with free shots and free lap dances at the Vanilla Unicorn.
  • PLUS for old time's sake and by popular demand, we're also turning on Triple XP in both Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption all weekend long (through end of day Monday).

My friend and I just gave up finally. I was on all morning, and my friend started trying about 45 minutes ago. I was fine till the game froze, then I couldn't get back on :(. So after another 20 minutes of us both trying, we just called it. Man this sucks...
