Rockstar has released a new patch for GTA Online this week and it is huge by any measure. The new patch adds new cars, weapons and also a sumo wrestling mode?but with cars.

One new vehicle is available for purchase from Benny?s Original Motorworks. The Dundreary Virgo Classic can be upgraded in the store.

In the sumo wrestling mode, players will go solo or team up to push their opponent out of the designated area. Chose your car wisely and get ready to maneuver your enemy out of the zone to win the competition.

The two new weapons added to the game — Compact Rifle and Double Barrel Shotgun — can both be used as drive-by weapons. The update also has a lot on the cosmetic side, adding 16 new tattoo designs, 3 new hairstyles and over 120 Lowrider themed clothing items and outfits have been added to the clothes store for male and female characters.
