Love it or hate it, GTA Online is massive. In fact, it's so massive that it's brought a staggering $500 million into Take-Two's coffers; all thanks to the multiplayer's internal economy that relies heavily upon players investing in 'Shark Cards', or microtransactions to the non-GTA players out there.
While these transactions have justifiably developed a bad rep within the mainstream press and gaming community, it has meant that all of Rockstar's updates to GTA Online have, so far, come at no cost to those in possession of the base game.
In order to enjoy the new content, gamers don't necessarily have to part with their hard-earned cash, though the studio is certainly guilty of incensitivising them to do so.
Successive updates to Grand Theft Auto's fifth instalment have all featured vehicles, weapons and clothing of exorbitant prices, meaning that for those who don't really have the time nor the inclination to play GTA all day, every day, a shark card is the only viable way for them to partake in the festivities a DLC brings.
With this latest update, Finance and Felony promises to change Online in a big way - promising new vehicles, game modes, offices and more - and one would be extremely foolish to label Online as an open world of a bygone era.
Indeed, if this DLC is anything to go by, it may only just be beginning to realise its full potential.
