GTA 5's next free multiplayer expansion launches today -- here's what's in it

The Valentine's Day-themed "Be My Valentine" update is out now, includes new mode, car, outfits and more.

As suspected, Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer mode GTA Online is getting a Valentine's Day update. Rockstar Games today launched "Be My Valentine," a free update for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC that comes with a variety of new content including new cars and outfits, as well as a new adversary mode (coming Friday) and more. You can watch a trailer for the update below.

Be My Valentine comes with a a pair of new cars, including the Albany Roosevelt Valor, which is available to buy from the in-game Legendary Motorsport store. This retro vehicle can be outfitted with a number of modifications from Los Santos Customs. The second car is the Albany Roosevelt, which makes its return following its first showing in 2014's Valentine's Day GTA Online event, Massacre Special.

Players can also buy a number of new clothing items for male and female characters, including new suits, vests, boxer shorts, and stockings. Additionally, all of the Valentine's Day clothes and masks from the previous event are back, while the Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun also returns and can now be purchased from Ammu-Nation.

Finally, Be My Valentine includes a new "couples-themed" adversary mode called "Till Death Do Us Part." This mode will launch this coming Friday, February 12; Rockstar will share more details on it "soon."

The first details on Be My Valentine's content leaked at the end of January.

Be My Valentine has been announced only for the new-generation console and PC versions of GTA Online. In September 2015, Rockstar said it would be focusing on those versions of the game instead of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3; all of the game's latest major updates have skipped those platforms.

GTA 5 isn't the only high-profile game celebrating Valentine's Day. Just this week, Destiny's "Crimson Days" event rolled out; you can see the full patch notes for that update here.

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.
