Rockstar raises the wanted level in Los Santos

Developer studio Rockstar seems pretty determined to keep the crime level raised in the city of Los Santos with the studio’s new update to Grand Theft Auto Online, titled The High Life.

One of the more exciting features of the update is the mental state feature which will help in identifying whether a player is friend or foe. It works by changing a player’s blip to red or white. The more red a player’s blip is, the more psychotic they may be (killing pedestrians, killing friendly players, mass murder, etc.). The whiter a player’s blip is indicates the friendlier they may be. Additionally, this system will also play a role in matchmaking by having players grouped with those who share compatible mental states.

The update also encourages players to soak in their wealth by allowing them to own two properties at the same time. This perk comes along with new real-estate options and property sales. Additionally, the update adds some new cars such as the Enus Huntley S, Dewbauchee Massacro and the Pegassi Zentorno.

For more information, you can check out the GTA Online website.
