Rockstar Games has confirmed that the free Beach Bum DLC pack for GTA V and GTA Online will arrive next week on Tuesday 19th November. The expansion will be updated automatically to GTA Online so you don’t have to concern yourself with having to download it.

You will get the following beach themed add-ons:

New Jobs - Races, Deathmatches, Parachutes, Last Team Standings, Survivals as well as Gang Attacks. Here’s a selection of what to expect, but there will be more…

“Grass Route II” (Race): In this sequel to the original popular Grass Route Race, go off-road in an epic heat starting on the North bank of the Zancudo River through the treacherous wetlands with a triumphant finish on the beach in North Chumash.

“Survival on Del Perro Pier” (Survival): Skip the ferris wheel for a deadlier kind of thrill ride as you take on waves of relentless enemies at this beachfront attraction.

“View of Vespucci” (Parachuting): This leap sends you from 2,980 feet, down towards Vespucci Beach, weaving through palm trees to land on the basketball courts of the rec center. If you’ve got skills, it’s possible to freefall through the first few checkpoints before even opening your chute.

“Paleto Beach” (Team Deathmatch): The locals complain that not a lot happens in this sleepy town, so do them a favor and wake ‘em up with a barrage of gunfire exchanged between you and a rival team. This Team Deathmatch takes place right on the romantic shoreline for 4-8 players.

“Sundae Driving” (Bike Race): Sure to be a new fan-favorite motorbike race, menace Vespucci Beach on your two-wheel rocket, taking breakneck corners as you try and best the competition.

I personally, can’t help but feel that the lack of Afro-hairstyles for my GTA Online character is infuriating. Guess, my dude will have to be bald for a while longer.

Rockstar Games also teases some upcoming features for GTA Online too. Co-op heists, content creator tools, and a unique take on the Capture The Flag mode seen in most multiplayers. Plus, new story mode DLC news is on the way too. Colour us excited.
