“The Contract is unlike anything we have done before, bridging story, music and the online world in new ways,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “Thanks to our long-time collaborator and friend DJ Pooh, we were able to work with some of the biggest legends in hip-hop on this very modern Los Santos adventure as players track down Dr. Dre’s lost music.”

Playable solo or with friends, GTA Online: The Contract is the latest massive update to GTA Online, featuring an all-new adventure set inside in the city of Los Santos as players join forces with returning Grand Theft Auto V protagonist Franklin Clinton to build a “celebrity solutions” agency catering to the Vinewood elite. Their first big break comes by way of a high-profile client - Dr. Dre - whose phone was lost in the shuffle during the events of the Cayo Perico Heist. Missing and presumed stolen, Dr. Dre’s phone is packed with the hottest property in town - files of unreleased music from Dr. Dre himself.

Going from the depths of the criminal underworld to the brightest lights of the city’s music scene and everywhere in between, players will do whatever they can to help Franklin and friends recover the missing tracks that make up Dr. Dre’s latest release, all debuting exclusively within GTA Online: The Contract.

Interwoven across the story of GTA Online: The Contract is a massive amount of music – from exclusive debuts from Dr. Dre to the brand-new radio station, MOTOMAMI Los Santos, from pop superstar ROSALÍA and visionary icon and longtime Rockstar collaborator, Arca, plus exclusive new tracks featured on the Rap and Hip-Hop stations of Big Boy’s Radio Los Santos and DJ Pooh’s West Coast Classics, plus a world premiere from CircoLoco Records featuring Nez and Schoolboy Q.

Debuting within the shared living world of GTA Online, the ever-evolving online companion to the record-breaking blockbuster Grand Theft Auto V, GTA Online: The Contract is the latest update following on from last summer’s debut of Los Santos Tuners, as the game continues to break records for player numbers. The previous year saw the biggest series of back-to-back updates ever in terms of audience, increasing year-over-year more than seven years after its original release.

Grand Theft Auto V is rated M for Mature by the ESRB. For more information, please visit https://www.rockstargames.com/GTAonline.
