Live like Donald Trump with GTA Online’s Ill-Gotten Gains this week

gta online ill gotten gains illgotten008
After working tirelessly to pull off those perfect heists, you deserve a reward. Fortunately, Rockstar is about to stock GTA Online‘s retailers with the latest in gaudy, luxury goods to spend your reward money on with Ill-Gotten Gains: Part 1, coming for free on Wednesday, June 10.

“Due to a surge in high-end crime across southern San Andreas, demand for luxury goods and services is at an all-time high,” explains the announcement. “Upscale merchants of all kinds are scrambling to fill their inventories to serve the newly wealthy.”

Nothing says class like a luxury Enus Windsor plastered with high-end brand logos like a leather handbag you bought in a Chinatown alley (among eight available skins). Or go full Donald Trump with gold-plated Buckingham Swift Deluxe helicopters, personal jets, and assault rifles. There will of course also be a general selection of fancy duds and sports cars for you to blow all that hard-won cash on, “perfect for the consummate capitalist.”

Keep an eye out next week for details about the accompanying Rockstar Social Club events, which will run from Friday, June 12 through Sunday, June 14. This special selection of events, contests, and challenges will give you chances to earn even more cash to spend on all those fine leather goods. The “Part One” designation implies that at least one more infusion of larcenous luxury will be coming out at some point, so keep your eyes peeled and your wallet ready. Treat yo self, gangsters!

Grand Theft Auto V is available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Windows. Going on two years out from its initial release on consoles, GTA V is looking better than ever in the recent PC release, which is particularly highlighted with the addition of officially supported recording and editing tools.
