Gangstar Vegas has run into its “Colors & Crews” update. And for better or worse, with this update, the latest installment in the popular Gangstar series of open-world action games, which was released by Gameloft as a premium title in June last year, has gone free-to-play.
“The Colors & Crews update just rolled into Gangstar: Vegas, making the game completely FREE TO PLAY!” Gameloft proclaims. “There’s gonna be a lot more Gangs shootin’ and stealin’ around here. So now’s a good time to ask yourself, ‘Who’s got your back?’”
With its having gone freemium, Gangstar Vegas has gained a new currency in the form of diamonds. You can earn diamonds by completing missions or special events and spend them to unlock extra content, missions, and events.
The new version of Gangstar Vegas also features gang battles or cooperative gunfights, with support for “criminal” chat.
Moreover, it features new costumes, weapons and vehicles, including the holiday-themed elf outfits, sugar-coater gun and Santa’s sleigh.
