Last week, we brought you the news that online heists will finally roll out to multiplayers users on March 10th. However, Rockstar have now added to the excitement by announcing a range of new features and enhancements that will be included alongside heists.
From these additions, GTA Online’s most significant new feature are those of the new PvP modes which Rockstar say will “bring intense new competitive challenges to GTA Online” and will “unlock as players progress through heists”.
These modes include:
Come Out To Play
“A team of three Runners just trying to make it home, and a team of Hunters are out for blood. Runners are well-armed but limited to movement by foot, while the opposition wield free-aim shotguns and ride motorbikes or ATVs. Hunters must stay on their bikes and have access to unlimited lives, while the Runners have just one life but all their weapons available to pick off the Hunters at will.”
“Up to four players stand their ground, outnumbered but not outgunned as they fight to survive against up to 6 determined attackers in a location defense mode, GTA style. Attackers have unlimited lives but fight only with sawn-off shotguns. Defenders have full use of all their weapons.”
Hasta La Vista
“The chase is on as Truckers in big rig cabs hunt down a team of Cyclists. The Cyclists' goal is simple: reach the final checkpoint without getting crushed under the wheels of the pursuing trucks. Without traditional weapons the Truckers must rely solely on their vehicles to crush the Cyclists. Meanwhile, the Cyclists must harness the maneuverability and acceleration of their bikes to evade the trucks, while keeping an eye over their shoulder. If one of the Cyclists reaches the checkpoint, the Cyclists win. If all Cyclists are terminated, the Truckers prevail.”
Another exciting new feature is the announcement of Daily Objectives. According to Rockstar there will be three daily objectives per day giving player a “rotating series of challenges to take on for GTA$ rewards” making your day in Los Santos “more lucrative”. These challenges can be stacked up by players over consecutive days to earn bonuses of up to $500,000.
New Freemode Activities
If that wasn’t enough there’s also new freemode activities awarding cash, RP and brand new awards upon completion. Players will get calls from their favourite characters such as Trevor, Lamar and Lester asking for help in different situations.
What do you think of these new features? Do you think there’s still something missing that Rockstar haven’t thought of yet? Let us know!
