GTA 5 Online Adds Tron-Like Racing Mode; Watch the Trailer
Deadline mode looks pretty fun.
More than three years after its release, Rockstar Games continues to support Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer mode, GTA Online. The developer today announced the latest free content and promotions for the game, including a new vehicle and mode, as well as more discounts on items.
A new motorcycle called the Nagaski Shotaro is available now from Legendary Motorsport. As you can see in the video above, it looks like something out of Tron. Everyone who buys the bike also gets a free Nagasaki t-shirt, as well as another piece of clothing themed around a new adversary mode called Deadline.
In the new Deadline mode, up to four players zip around a custom map on Shotaro bikes, with a temporary light trail emitting behind them. Players who come into contact with the trail will explode. Each rider has a different color light trail. Additionally, there are power-ups available, including boosts and an item that can slow down time. Another item, "Hop," lets you jump over an opponent's light trail.
Deadline is available now in GTA Online. Rockstar is encouraging people to try it out by offering double GTA$ and RP in the mode until November 21.
