GTA V Beach Bum Content

'Beach Bum' content comes with new title update.

The long awaited free 'Beach Bum' update is out now for both the 360 and PS3 versions of 'Grand Theft Auto V.' While the bulk of the content is meant for 'GTA Online,' some of the content will be available in the Story mode.

"Take on new Beach Bum Races with the BF Bifta dune buggy, the rugged Canis Kalahari off-road truck or the Bravado Paradise beach camper van. For aquatic-based endeavors, the classic Speeder speedboat is also now available. All four vehicles can also be accessed in Story Mode and are available at no in-game cost. To access them in GTA Online, just visit the in-game website (or for the Speeder)."

"Also available in both Story Mode and Online (and at no additional in-game cost) are the new SNS Pistol & Broken Bottle - a pair of close range weapons perfect for any beach blanket brouhaha."

"This update also features a wide array of new apparel - everything from casual canvas hats to tank tops, t-shirts, board shorts and bikinis in a wide range of styles and colors... plus new hairstyle and tattoo customization options."

Rockstar is also adding 30 new jobs for the online mode, something that is promised to happen at regular interval. In fact, along with the better late than never free content, Rockstar has described that the free 'Beach Bum' pack and free job system are just one of a "variety of ways (to deliver new content) including major paid expansions at specific points during the year."

Finally, along with more fixes for the Online Mode including about a dozen different fixes for losing a personal vehicle or modification, Rockstar has overhauled the Bad Sport system.
