Running alongside this promotion is a series of sales on GTA Online aircraft, weapons, and clothing. The offers listed below are good through March 10.

GTA Online Discounts Include:

  • 50 percent off Flight Suits & Flight Caps
  • 25 percent off all Combat Helicopters
  • 25 percent off all Private Jets
  • 25 percent off all Automatic Rifles

This is the latest in a series of recent updates for GTA Online, the multiplayer mode for Grand Theft Auto V. Before this, Rockstar released a Valentine's Day update and a new David vs. Goliath-type mode in February.

Rockstar parent company Take-Two has described GTA Online as "the gift that keeps on giving" as it relates to the revenue derived from the game's microtransactions.

In other news about GTA Online, the mode recently enjoyed its best week ever in terms of revenue and the number of people playing it. That could explain why GTA V single-player DLC is nowhere to be seen.
