Rockstar Games obviously wants all of my free time and yours too. That can be the only explanation for the newly-announced DLC for December: Import/Export.

Savvy CEOs know there’s always more for the taking. While Special Cargo business in Southern San Andreas is booming, another opportunity to expand your hold on the city awaits. With GTA Online: Import/Export it’s time to muscle into the lucrative and specialized field of high-volume exotic car theft.


First things first…

Let me start this off by saying I am a huge fan of the motorcycle club business missions. It’s all I really do on GTA at present. The payout is far better than missions or survival for that matter, and the return on your investment of game money plus gameplaying time is evident almost immediately. I predict that it will be the same for this newest update.

Introducing the GTA Online Import/Export Update

Stealing and dealing high-end vehicles is serious business. Building on the supply chains of Further Adventures in Finance and Felony, Import/Export introduces a whole new series of criminal pursuits as CEOs and their organizations boost, modify and resell the most wanted vehicles in the city for big profits. It will take talent, coordination and the tactical use of some brand new Special Vehicles to get the job done, all while staying one step ahead of the police and rival challengers from across the city and countryside.

Make it fun for me and my friends

It sounds like Rockstar is trying to encourage cooperative play again. I have seen a lot of players conducting their CEO and Motorcycle Club missions solo; I do mine mostly solo when I can.

You are likely going to need  friends to help you get things done with the GTA Online Import/Export update. While it may at times be inconvenient, It is a fun way of getting back into group play. My friends and I occasionally set up sessions to help each other with Motorcycle Club and CEO work.

Can I own more cars?

I exclusively ride motorcycles now. The benefits of being in the motorcycle club make it the more appealing option. I don’t have to call the mechanic or wait out the mechanic timer every time I want to switch bikes. The options in the interaction menu make it so as long as I am registered as a motorcycle club member, I can return my bikes and call a new bike repeatedly with no delay or interruption in my gameplay. This is huge.

Having a customs shop inside my motorcycle club that lets me fix my bikes without going out into the public lobby to do so is another cool benefit. It was worth the money to add that option into my clubhouse, and Rockstar is promising a similar option with the GTA Online Import/Export update.

New Vehicle Warehouses will house the results of your importing and exporting operations, while CEOs can also reap the fruits of their labor with expansions to the Executive Office buildings. Add massive Executive Office Garages with up to three floors of showroom quality storage for as many as 60 vehicles, complete with customizable décor and a Custom Auto Shop.

60 vehicles in addition to the 70 we can already have counting our motorcycle club garages? You had me at Custom Auto Shop for cars.

As I told OJ earlier this morning, I may never leave the house again. I’m looking forward to the GTA Online Import/Export update.
