Heists, the long-awaited and much-delayed mode for GTA Online that allows players to pull off ambitious bank jobs and robberies, is finally coming to GTA Online March 10. But that’s not all we’re getting.
Rockstar is also adding, in addition to Heists, three new modes called Adversary Modes. These competitive modes pit players against each other in new ways. They are unlocked by completing Heists and include, according to Rockstar’s descriptions:
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.
Rockstar is also adding new Daily Objectives that can earn you bonuses of up to $500,000 and new Freemode Activities that include calls from Lester to distract cops, calls from Lamar to take out vehicles, and calls from Trevor and Ron to destroy planes.
Rockstar says this content will also all be available when the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V launches April 14.
