The wait might be well and truly on for Grand Theft Auto V on PC, but at least we know there’s going an absolute bucket load of stuff for us steal, murder, and rampage through once it arrives. Rockstar’s now announced even further plans for improvements and additions for both GTA V and Grand Theft Auto Online ahead of its April 14th launch.
If you haven’t had a chance to go hands-on with GTA Online just yet, it’s dangerously addictive multiplayer mayhem, and it’s only going to get better in the weeks leading up to the PC launch. Rockstar is adding three brand-new adversary mods for competitive PvP to GTA 5, including ‘Come Out To Play’, ‘Siege Mentality’, and ‘Hasta La Vista’.
Come Out To Play has a team of three Runners on foot trying to make it to a home location, with the Hunters armed with shotguns while riding atop motorbikes and ATVs. Runners have just one life while Hunters have unlimited, the twist being Hunters have access to every weapon in their armoury.
As you’d expect Siege Mentality is a location defense mode in which up to four players have to defend a location from up to six attackers tooled up with sawn-off shotguns. The final new mode is Hasta La Vista, in which a team of Truckers in 18-wheelers must mow down a team cyclists before they reach the final checkpoint. Sounds awesome.
That’s not all for Rockstar’s update plans either, with Daily Objectives giving players a rotating series of challenges every day they log in, providing a convenient and ever-present way of earning a bit extra cash. There’s also a few new Free Mode activities to keep an eye out for, these will come via phone calls from Lester.
In typical Rockstar fashion they've also sent along a bunch of GTA Online screenshots to help ease your waiting woes.
Grand Theft Auto 5 and Online will be hitting on April 14th. If you've picked up any of the console versions then you can look out for this update, along with Online Heists, in the coming week.
