GTA Online’s next big update is coming on June 7

All-new smuggling operations are coming to GTA Online in a major update early next month. The update, jauntily titled Further Adventures in Finance and Felony, will let players expand their in-game groups and even become CEO of their own Criminal Enterprises starting on June 7.

The update will add new properties like high-rise office buildings and warehouses, ideal for a growing criminal empire. Rockstar is keeping mostly quiet on gameplay details until it drops a trailer next week, though it did share this screenshot of “associates” creeping up on some “Special Cargo in Buy missions arranged by the CEO”.

And it wouldn’t be a GTA Online update without some expensive new wheels to blow your cash on, like this smugly angular beast called the Pegassi Reaper.

Rockstar says Further Adventures in Finance and Felony will be one of GTA Online’s biggest and deepest updates yet (definitely the largest since Executives and Other Criminals back in December), so I look forward to hearing more about it soon.

Here’s a musical tribute to the Dead Island trailer, in case you wanted to cry today

You’re thinking of it right now, aren’t you? Just looking at the headline and image up there, you’re remembering the famous Dead Island reveal trailer – and all the feelings it overwhelmed you with.

Well, publisher Deep Silver would like to stir up those old feelings ahead of the May 31 release date for the remastered Dead Island: Definitive Collection, and to that end they’ve released this live performance of the haunting melody from said trailer.

It’s memorable, beautiful to look at, and heartbreaking. It’s also totally not reflective of what the actual gameplay experience will be like. So, yeah, pretty much exactly like the original trailer then.
