It doesn’t take long for a game’s soundtrack to become repetitive and annoying. Especially as games get longer. So, you might be happy to hear that GTA Online is going to receive a musical update, which will add three new radio stations to its repertoire. It is, after all, one of the longest games to exist given its immortal story arc. And has been round for a number of years by now. But will they play anything that will get your toe tapping?
Well, according to those behind the scenes, the three new stations will be called The Music Locker, Still Slipping Los Santos and Kult FM 99.1. And they will cover a range of genres from house and disco to Iggy Pop and Joy Division. But this writer is a little disappointed by the lack of country music on offer here, so she for one will be keeping the volume on the down low. However, if you’re into any of the above, GTA Online might hook you for another 100 hours plus.
I bet Rockstar can hear the tills pinging already!
Yet, in addition to the 250 new songs that these three new stations will bring with them, other existing channels will also get an update – coming in the guise of new songs being filtered in from week to week. So, this news will also come as some relief to those of you who have played the songs to death by now. And to anyone you share a room with who has had to endure them too…
The official blurb reads as:
Alongside the grand opening of The Music Locker and its new slate of resident DJs, GTA Online’s musical universe further expands at the launch of The Cayo Perico Heist with the addition of three new radio stations, as well as brand new mixes arriving on hit stations FlyLo FM and Worldwide FM, for a whopping total of over 250 new tracks, making this the biggest ever musical update to GTA Online.
Which really manages to relay just how big of an update this is. But as they have already outlined their plans for a PlayStation 5 native edition, I can hardly say I’m surprised. In fact, just take this as the first of many refreshes to come to GTA Online over the coming months. Because the face lift has been a long time coming…
