Online heists are finally launching next week in GTA V. This much-anticipated feature brings four player co-op heist missions to the online portion of the game, but alongside them, there’s actually going to be a lot more content.
First up are the new Adversary Modes, which are player vs. player scenarios and will unlock as you progress through the heists. These are:
Come Out To Play
A team of three Runners just trying to make it home, and a team of Hunters are out for blood. Runners are well-armed but limited to movement by foot, while the opposition wield free-aim shotguns and ride motorbikes or ATVs. Hunters must stay on their bikes and have access to unlimited lives, while the Runners have just one life but all their weapons available to pick off the Hunters at will.
Up to four players stand their ground, outnumbered but not outgunned as they fight to survive against up to 6 determined attackers in a location defense mode, GTA style. Attackers have unlimited lives but fight only with sawn-off shotguns. Defenders have full use of all their weapons.
Hasta La Vista
The chase is on as Truckers in big rig cabs hunt down a team of Cyclists. The Cyclists’ goal is simple: reach the final checkpoint without getting crushed under the wheels of the pursuing trucks. Without traditional weapons the Truckers must rely solely on their vehicles to crush the Cyclists. Meanwhile, the Cyclists must harness the maneuverability and acceleration of their bikes to evade the trucks, while keeping an eye over their shoulder. If one of the Cyclists reaches the checkpoint, the Cyclists win. If all Cyclists are terminated, the Truckers prevail.
Furthermore, there are new Daily Objectives which should keep you coming back to the game. There are three new objectives per day, and completing these will give you more GTA$, with bonuses for completing consecutive tasks.
New activities will also be added to the free roam world, and you’ll get calls from game characters such as Lester, Lamar, and even Trevor to request help with their criminal activities.
GTA Online will be updated with heists and all these features on March 10th on console, and these features will also be available at launch on the PC version on April 14th.
