Rockstar Games Releases GTA V Update 1.13 High Life for GTA Online

Rockstar games High Life update now live

The newest GTA V update (1.13) is now live, it is free, and can be downloaded by accessing GTA Online when connected to the internet. The High Life update was mentioned to release today, luckily Rockstar Games is on top of the ball and successfully stuck to that deadline. This update focuses on bringing in new content for all the home enthusiasts; five new High-End apartments can now purchased in GTA Online.

The focus in the High Life update mostly revolves around looking your best and having the equipment to back it up. More than 30 new suits were added along with new cars, the Bullpup Rifle, and five new apartments. Spectator Mode is now fully functional, the cap for maximum rank has been changed to 8,000, and the mission “Rooftop Rumble” has gone through some changes.

As always, Rockstar Games works to fix remaining bugs with each new update, this iteration is no different. Here are a number of the changes you can expect from update 1.13:

  • Players can choose which garage the Mechanic will send vehicles to
  • Players can buy multiple sets of Body Armour
  • Once a player has used a specific ability they will no longer receive calls about how to use that ability
  • If a player has enough Cash in Bank or Wallet they can use it to purchase items without moving Cash
  • NPC vehicles are disabled with a Race begins
  • Race directions have become easier to see during day races
  • Filters have been added to the Create Playlist Menu
  • Fixed problem with players loosing personal vehicle insurance from any DLC lobby
  • Fixed payout problem after failing first-time-attempted missions
  • Lifestyle stat has gained extra explanation text
  • Rally passengers receive “The Record Holder” award when a world record is set by driver
  • Fixed problem in Capture missions with spammed messages
  • Smoking in-car animation has been fixed
  • Warnings in garages have become more specific to help players understand exactly what they are doing
  • When a player is Banned a feed message will explain how long they are to remain in the Cheater Pool
  • Players that idle in Online will not be booted when in a menu
  • Crew emblem problems have been fixed
  • Race World Records give proper RP
  • Fixed problem where players starts a Race the wrong direction
  • Players can no longer die before Team Deathmatch begins
  • Gun tint colors have been fixed

Don’t forget about the Mental State stat. This new feature takes note of how you play and represents that through color on players maps. If you attack citizens often your blip will become red, if you are more friendly than your blip will become a lighter white color. Actions such as killing another player will darken your color much faster than exploding a car or shooting down a pedestrian. This mental state factor now also plays a role in matchmaking because you are more likely to be paired with someone of similar friendliness.

Fans have been anxiously waiting for this new High Life update, the more than a month wait looks like it was necessary though because Rockstar Games fixed a massive amount of small issues. Until now GTA Online Creator has been in BETA, but this update promotes it out of BETA status. For an even bigger list of fixes check the Rockstar Support link down below.

      You have to find it on the job vote screen, once you have played it you can access it from the pause menu. 🙂
