Rockstar Games on Tuesday launched the long-awaited High Life Update for “GTA Online” for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and the New York City-based developer will hold a Social Club High Life Event Weekend beginning May 16. The two-day event will provide players a chance to win bonus RP and increased GTA$ payouts. Players will also have the chance to score exclusive gear and up to $1 million of in-game prizes.
The update, which went live May 13, introduced a number of new vehicles, including the Enus Huntley S, the Dewbauchee Massacro and the Pegassi Zentorno. Users can also own more than one apartment and play with new weapons, like the Bullpup Rifle.
In addition to these new features, Rockstar introduced a new Mental State stat that monitors player behavior. Like real life, in-game actions will affect how you’re perceived by other players. If you enjoy attacking innocent civilians and terrorizing other users, your blip will turn red on the maps of others. If you display overall friendly behavior, your blip will turn white.
The update also repaired a number of bugs, which were detailed on the Rockstar support forum.
Five new High-End apartments have been added to Online.
The ability to own more than one property has been added to Online. Please note that utility and mechanic charges will also double if you own two properties.
Mental State has been added. (This is a new approach for Matchmaking based on how often a player kills other players in Free Roam in Online).
Four new selectable vehicles have been added to Legendarymotorsport.net: Dewbauchee Massacro, Pegassi Zentorno, Enus Huntley, Dinka Thrust, Grotti Stinger, Coil Voltic
An open-top variant of the Bravado Banshee has been added to Legendary Motorsport.

As requested by the Stunting Community, the changes to bike physics in a recent Title Update have been reverted.
Fixed an issue where dropped items in created Capture Jobs would not be correctly blipped on the map.

Fixed an issue where the water cannon on the Fire Truck did not work correctly.
Fixed an exploit where players were able to shoot in their garages.

The following difficulty changes have been made to the Mission “Rooftop Rumble”:
50% of FIB agents present at the start of the mission now have high accuracy.
Additional FIB agents spawn as players attack the parking garage. The agents spawn in two waves of cars.
After all the agents on foot in the parking lot and the first wave of agents in cars are killed, the mission will either progress in 30 seconds or require players to finish off all FIB agents.
The FIB agent carrying the documents Martin wants now spawns in a vehicle as the mission progresses.
