GTA Online: The Contract – Available Now!

Franklin’s long awaited return to GTA is finally here, as GTA Online: The Contract is available now on all platforms.

The Contract update sees a plethora of new items added to GTA Online, with more weapons, vehicles, clothing & tattoos all available with more to come over the next few weeks. Additionally, a new property called the Agency is now listed on Dynasty 8 real-estate. As expected in an update featuring Dr. Dre, music is also a big part of the package, with an update to the radio stations in Los Santos and new tracks from the main man himself.

How to start GTA Online: The Contract

After downloading the updating (download sizes below), you’ll receive a call from Lamar when logging into GTA Online, inviting you to purchase an Agency.

After purchasing your Agency, you’ll meet Frank Clinton, having moved on from his days of low-level crime, he’s now working with rich people, solving rich people problems.

At your Agency, you’ll be given access to a PC, where you can complete security missions after registering as a CEO, whilst across the building, Franklin works on securing an A List client to work with. After completing a few security missions, new opportunities will open up and that’s where Dr. Dre is introduced.

During the introduction to the Cayo Perico heist in 2020, Dr. Dre is about to join you on your trip to the Island, before realising his phone is missing. As part of The Contract, you’ll be tasked with locating the missing phone, which also gives players a chance to hang with Dr. Dre at Record A Studios, getting a behind the scenes look at his recording process.
