Grand Theft Auto 5 has been one of the most successful games of all time, with thousands of users across the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC. Now, as if we needed another reason to play it, GTA 5 Online is adding a new transform races mode to the gaming experience.
Beginning on October 17, players will be able to use a new type of racing mode described as the “next evolution of stunt racing.”
According to the RockStar site:
“Instantly mix vehicle and race types as you switch between land, sea and air in Transform Races, the next evolution of stunt racing in Grand Theft Auto Online. Jump instantly from the curves of a gritty, downtown street race straight into a speeding jet high above Los Santos, then dive face first down Raton Canyon on a jet ski and more. Transform Races are new and unique stunt tracks that seamlessly transition across land, sea and air, running the gamut of available vehicle types – everything from Supers and Off-Roads, to Boats, Planes, and Helicopters – and even some skydiving thrown in for good measure.”
Have a look at the trailer below:
Of course, this isn’t the only new mode coming in the Fall Update. “There are also a pair of new Adversary Modes on the horizon; Condemned, a free-for-all with one player on the clock as a dead man walking, the only chance at survival through passing this death sentence on to an opponent. And Dogfight, where you can live out your fighter pilot fantasies and send the opposition spiraling to their doom.”
The company even announced some other upcoming features that won’t make it as a part of this update, but one of the future updates. Imagine a world of weaponized vehicles and new inventory updates at Legendary Motorsport.
RockStar continues to impress with GTA 5, and the online gaming community is benefiting from their hard work. These new modes will add a new twist to gameplay and even more options for players who love online gaming against other humans. Of course, you can’t forget the great story of GTA 5 as well. The single player game is one of the best the company has released and well worth playing. If you haven’t played GTA 5, I strongly recommend that you do. With both its single player and multiplayer options, there is enough content to keep you busy for hours upon hours.
