This major update fixes various bugs, improves the camera and performance. Additionally, the last two special missions can now be unlocked. Furthermore, there is also new content with the update, such as the shooting range. More features and content can be found in the changelog 📑:

Gameplay:

  • The shooting range is now available on the training mission board behind the police department where you also can start the driving school missions.
