Rockstar’s latest update for Grand Theft Auto Online arrives today featuring a new vehicle, gunrunning bonuses, discounts, and a new Adversary Mode named Power Mad. Players can log into Grand Theft Auto 5‘s online services right now and access all of the new content. The cash one will need to make the most of the new content is players’ own responsibility, but at the very least, folks can join into Power Mad and make a few bucks PvPing.
Power Mad pits teams of 2-4 players against each other for control of a Juggernaut power-up, which gives Grand Theft Auto Online players a mini-gun and enough armor to do the power-up’s name justice. At that point it’s just about causing mayhem, laying waste to opponents, and filling the Juggernaut meter in order to score a point. If the Juggernaut dies before filling the meter, the power-up drops and lets another player try their best to score while everyone else tries to take them down.
As a reward for trying out the new Adversary Mode, players will earn double GTA$ and RP now through July 31. As if getting to mow down opponents with a mini-gun while wearing Juggernaut armor wasn’t already enough reason to play.
As for the new car, Grand Theft Auto Online introduces the Pegassi Torero. Available from Legendary Motorsport, the Pegassi Torero looks like it just rolled straight out of the 80s. And considering it’s similar in design to the real world Lamborghini Countach that was available throughout the 80s, that makes a lot of sense. The Sports Classics-class vehicle will run a hefty $998,000 in-game, and while it only carries two players maximum, it’s still worth the purchase for the look alone.
Grand Theft Auto Online is also having a sale on engine upgrades, which is a great opportunity paired with a new vehicle purchase. All engine upgrades will be 25% off until July 31 to celebrate the new DLC release. The discounts don’t end there though. Ammu-Nation is also having a 25% off sale for all handguns, machine guns, assault rifles, and sniper rifles. Finally, there’s a 25% Bunker Research boost to help players reach those upgrades previously just out of reach.
Grand Theft Auto Online and all of its updates are available now through Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
