Police in England have taken to social media with what has to be one of the most bizarre Grand Theft Auto-related stories of the year – and yeah, I’m talking about the Rockstar Games game, and not the actual crime.
Lancashire Police recently discovered an 11-year-old boy in Blackpool driving his parents’ car with permission, in an attempt to “stop him playing GTA all day.”
They tweeted: “The driver of this car was 11 years old… (yes, eleven!) A family member was fed up with the child playing Grand Theft Auto all day on the Playstation, so brought him out to practice driving on a car park Blackpool… The adult has been reported for traffic offences.”
Hopefully the 11-year-old won’t be looking to test out any other of the activities available in GTA…
Speaking of cars and GTA, GTA Online has just gotten itself a new update that introduces racing to the game.
The Diamond Casino and Resort update that launched last year breathed more life into the game than ever before, and it seems that Rockstar Games has no plans to slow down.
The iconic game has just received a brand-new content update, and it’s introduced a lot of exciting mechanics into the mix. Those who are fans of racing sims are going to be particularly pleased with the offerings, as GTA Online is now basically a giant racing sim.
Named Open Wheel Racing, the update introduces a whole two-wheel racing game, featuring two new open-wheel vehicles and seven tracks.
Rockstar has said of Open Wheel Racing: “The future of competitive motorsport has arrived, and it’s in a hurry. Two brand new open-wheel ultra-performance vehicles. Seven high-speed tracks. Dozens of split-second decisions, from the tires you use, to whether you take that all-important pit stop. And above all: one seat, one driver, one grand prize.”
