GTA Online import-export update also lets you change your appearance

It will only cost a mere $100,000.


Rockstar released the new import-export update for GTA Online this week, letting players steal vehicles and selling them, while expanding their garage to contain all the new ill-gotten gains. However, one aspect of the update that went relatively unnoticed was the ability for players to change their in-game appearance.

The much-requested feature was listed in the update, but VG247 found that it will only cost you about $100,000 in-game cash. That may sound like a lot, but not when weighed against the millions you'll be making from selling the stolen property. If you don't want the total plastic-surgery package, a varity of new masks are also available to obscure your identity.

Grand Theft Auto V continues to be popular since its launch in 2013, with GTA Online responsible for some of that longevity, given the constant updates and expansions being pushed out. The multiplayer mode will eventually be phased out, but it still continues to benefit the publisher Take-Two's bottom line.

      Like the last few big updates, I like aspects of the new additions, but they fail in a lot of ways too–specifically if you play with friends at all.

      The Import/Export jobs are really inconsistent. For one job you might have to shoot up a gang and steal a really nice exotic, modify it, then drive it a block or two and make 80k. The next one will have you go through a military blockade to steal a helicopter, fly it over the whole map, pick up a cheap piece of shit car while you're being shot at by 20 NPCs, modify it for a measly 20k profit, then drive it across the whole map through a nuclear holocaust.

      Your profit would be 80k and 20k for that 15-30 minutes of time (with a 15 minute cooldown in-between), if your friends are with you they will be lucky to make 20k total in that hour.

      That said, I still prefer most of these missions to running crates all day.

        Totally agree with you. I have noticed the enforcement on these missions to be WILDLY harder than they should be. If you are dealing with a 2nd level resell of the car, the attackers shouldn't be as consistent/harrowing as the 3rd level sales either. However it seems like they just said "throw x number of NPC's until delivery". From what I can tell you'll never deliver a car cleanly with the way they are setup.
