Deadline, the latest content update for the GTA Online multiplayer mode in Grand Theft Auto 5, was announced by Rockstar Games yesterday and it’s a great homage to the classic sci-fi movie – Tron. The new update introduces futuristic looking Nagasaki Shotaro, a new bike that players will be able to unlock by trying the new Deadline Adversary Mode. Here is what you can expect from this new game mode:
Deadline pits up to four players against another, each mounted on a different colored Shotaro, which emits a temporary light trail as you ride through the arena. Any competitor unfortunate enough to come in contact with said trail meets an instant explosion. Make calculated movements to force opponents to cross your trail’s path and take advantage of strategic power-ups for a competitive edge; use Boost to speed ahead and cut off your opponents, slow down time with Zoned for precision movement, or leap your opponent’s light trail with Hop.
You can try the new Deadline mode right now in GTA Online. Rockstar Games is also offering special GTA Online bonuses such as double GTA$ and RP through November 21st, and you can check out the full blog post for more details.
