‘GRAND THEFT AUTO ONLINE’ LAUNCHING IN-GAME NIGHTCLUB SHOWCASING REAL WORLD DJ SETS
While the Music Locker is open to everyone in GTA Online, it will also sport a VIP section open exclusively to those who own a penthouse in the Diamond Casino.
The Music Locker is the latest integration of music performance into the world of gaming. Epic Games’ Fortnite has held in-game concerts from Marshmello and Travis Scott that drew in millions of players while Korean boy band BTS debuted their song “Dynamite” in the game in late September. However, these concerts were one-off events, not something players could access any time they log in.
Within the world of Los Santos, the Music Locker builds on concepts introduced in the 2018 GTA Online: After Hours update, which included a player-owned nightclub and appearances from real-world acts The Blessed Madonna, Solomun, Dixon and Tale of Us.
Rockstar Games teased more news is incoming around the music scene in Los Santos, including new radio stations, additional music for already-existing stations and more DJs confirming residency at the Music Locker.
In addition to the Music Locker, The Cayo Perico Heist update brings players the opportunity to plan and execute an action-packed heist on heavily fortified Caribbean island Cayo Perico, home to the drug lord El Rubio. It is the first major expansion of GTA Online’s geography, and Rockstar Games claims it “sets the scene for the biggest update in the history of GTA Online.”
The Cayo Perico Heist will be available Dec. 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and is free with every copy of GTA V.
