Rockstar Games releases another new game mode for Grand Theft Auto Online, as well as a week-long celebration offering bonus RP and double cash to players.
Grand Theft Auto 5 and its online component came out nearly three years ago, but Rockstar is still hard at work adding new content for players to enjoy. In the latest major update to the game, a new game mode is coming out for Grand Theft Auto Online.
Rockstar is calling the mode “In and Out,” describing it as an adversary mode with gameplay similar to Grand Theft Auto Online‘s Capture mode. Attacking players will have to retrieve 8 packages from the defending team’s turf, and attacking players can expect the defense to be well-equipped with a large arsenal of weaponry.
The new In and Out game mode will be available to players on May 3rd, but players can start enjoying “In and Out Week” bonuses now. The week-long celebration will offer double RP and cash for players participating in the week’s playlist, which varies from day to day. The playlist schedule is as follows:
- Friday, April 29 & Saturday, April 30 – Adversary Mode Playlist 1 feat. Hunting Pack, Relay & Offense Defense
- Sunday, May 1 & Monday, May 2 – Adversary Mode Playlist 2 feat. Hasta La Vista, Every Bullet Counts & Keep the Pace
- Tuesday, May 3 through Thursday, May 5 – In and Out Playlist feat. all 3 maps of In and Out
In addition to the reputation and cash bonuses, Ammu-Nation is holding a sale with major discounts on almost everything. Grenades and sticky bombs are 20% off, assault rifle mods and combat machine guns are 25% off, and SMG ammo is 50% off during the sale, which will run all week long. However, unlike prior game modes like Inch by Inch, Rockstar doesn’t appear to be offering any unique cars for this event.
Rockstar’s attempts to keep the game fresh seem to please gamers while also generating substantial revenue for the company. Although it hasn’t released any major single player DLC for the game, the multiplayer GTA Online has generated half a billion dollars in revenue all on its own. Considering that GTA Online is free to play and that microtransactions are completely optional, this is a particularly substantial achievement. This is in addition to Rockstar selling 60 million copies of Grand Theft Auto V, which surely gave the company a substantial revenue boost.
Grand Theft Auto Online doesn’t show any signs of slowing down anytime soon. Gamers who want to get in on the opportunity to play a new game mode and get extra cash and RP should make sure to log in to the game soon, as the opportunity will end on May 5th.
Grand Theft Auto V is out now for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
