Rockstar announces the latest weekly event for GTA Online; get all the details here.

Just in time for the start of the weekend, Rockstar Games has announced a big sale for Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer mode GTA Online and detailed how you can earn double RP.

The new event is called Ill-Gotten Gains Week, and it runs now through March 31. As the name suggests, it's themed around content from the previously released Ill-Gotten Gains updates.

First, log into GTA Online any day through March 31 and you will receive a new T-shirt with the logo for the fictional film "The Shoulder Of Orion II."

Additionally, you can earn double RP by participating in some of GTA Online's race playlists. These will be available directly through the GTA V launch screen every day this coming week; the schedule is below:

  • Friday March 25 - Sunday March 27 - Street Races
  • Monday March 28 & Tuesday March 29 - Air Races
  • Wednesday March 30 & Thursday March 31 - Sea Races

There are also savings to be had, as Rockstar is offering 25 percent of some of the cars introduced to GTA Online with the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 update. Discounted Legendary Motorsport cars include: Coil Brawler, Progen T20, Invetero Coquette BlackFin and the Dinka Vindicator motorcycle.

Additionally, mods for these vehicles (and others) are offered for 25 percent off from Los Santos Customs.

It's not just land-based vehicles that are on sale, as the Lampadati Toro speedboat is also available for 25 percent off from the DockTease dealer.

On top of this, Rockstar is offering 50 percent off all clothing and tattoos from both parts of the Ill-Gotten Gains updates. The weapon shop Ammu-Nation is also offering items like the Knuckle Duster, The Pimp, and The Rock melee weapons for 50 percent off.
