— Rockstar Newswire description.

The High Life Update is a content update for Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V. The update fixed many bugs and glitches in the game. It was made available on May 13, 2014.


This update adds more high-end vehicles, including the Zentorno, a new super car. Also, new clothing items are exclusively available for male characters. One new weapon, the Bullpup Rifle, is now available. A new Mental State system that keeps track of players' behavior has been added as well.



One new weapon was included this time. It is automatically added to the GTA V character inventory and, in GTA Online, can be obtained for free in Ammu-Nation stores.

BullpupRifle-GTAV Bullpup Rifle The Bullpup Rifle is based on the QBZ-95-1. It also appears to have an M16 style front sight/gas block.


Four new road vehicles are included in the update. They all are obtained in single-player by visiting the characters' garages. In GTA Online, they can be purchased from Legendary Motorsport.

Image Name Description

Dinka Thrust

A touring motorcycle based on Honda's 2014 CTX700, 2014 CTX1300 and 2010 DN-01.

Pegassi Zentorno

A hypercar heavily based on the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.

Dewbauchee Massacro

A sports coupe based heavily on the 2nd generation Aston Martin Vanquish.

Enus Huntley S

A luxury four-door SUV based on the Bentley EXP 9 F concept SUV.

As well as new vehicles, numerous existing vehicles have been added to Legendary Motorsport and Southern San Andreas Super Autos for purchase in GTA Online:

Character Customization[]

  • 30 male clothing items and 32 male outfits have been added.


This update includes 8 new contact missions and 4 new races.


The ability to buy two properties was added, allowing for more storage of vehicles. There are five brand new "high life" apartments. These apartments have new interior designs.

Race Options[]

Players now have the option to turn on "Non-Contact," which allows them to play standard races with collisions disabled between other player's vehicles, as well as players appearing semi-transparent. However, the player will still be able to collide with buildings and NPC traffic.

Mental State[]

Players now have a mental state visible to other players, which varies depending on their actions, such as being passive or aggressive. Passive players are shown as white dots while aggressive players are shown as red dots. The more a player kills other players, kills NPCs, or blows up other players' cars, the darker the color will be. Players who kill an aggressive player will receive RP for doing so.



GTA Online - The High Life Update [All DLC Content]


  • This is the first GTA Online DLC to be delayed due to Rockstar combating and patching serious problems of game exploits. The initial release was April 22nd, 2014 but the update was delayed until May 13th.
  • Rockstar launched a special activity to "Beef up your bank balance and boost your notoriety in Grand Theft Auto Online this weekend to prepare for the new apartments, lavish cars and amenities coming in the High Life Update," starting May 2nd to May 3rd. It consisted of a double RP and money boost for all jobs and most activities.
  • As later discovered in the PC release, a new 10-car garage was supposed to be added in the High Life update, probably alongside with the new apartments. It was, however, scrapped before the release of the update.
  • The armed girl from the promotional artwork was featured in She's Loaded[1], an artwork by Christopherson at The Diamond Casino & Resort.
