Periphery Guitarist Jake Bowen’s Job Now Officially In “Grand Theft Auto V”

Periphery guitarist Jake Bowen has gotten himself into the “Grand Theft Auto V” video game, in a manner of speaking. Rockstar Games have just verified Bowen‘s “Rail Yard, Railed Out” job for inclusion in the online component of the game. The official description on that reads as follows:

“Regular viewers of the Rockstar Games Twitch channel may remember this Job from our July 11th live stream, created by guitarist slash devoted GTA Online player, Jake Bowen from prog-metal band Periphery. Jake has added props sparingly to maintain the exposed, dangerous middle ground of the train yards, while teams spawn at either end. Stay close to your Crew and resist the urge to hammer the sprint button along the trainyards, as a stealthy approach will yield kills on unsuspecting foes crossing the tracks. Those with a steady aim might want to head to the rooftop, grab the Sniper Rifle and pick off anyone attempting to dash between cover spots.”

Rockstar Games regularly updates the online component of the game with a select handful of jobs created by users, with Bowen‘s being lucky enough to make the cut.
