Adversary Modes, Daily Objectives and More New Updates Also Coming to GTA Online March 10th

Posted on March 3 2015, 3:47pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Next week, Heists will deliver a brand new gameplay experience to GTA Online, offering players the chance to team up to take down big scores. Alongside this massive new addition comes a range of new features and enhancements to make the entire GTA Online experience bigger and deeper.  Adversary Modes bring three new kinds of competition to GTA Online while new Daily Objectives and other Freemode activities bring new life to the hectic streets of Los Santos and Blaine County.  Here's a rundown of just some of the new features and additions launching next week alongside Heists that will continue to expand and augment the world of Grand Theft Auto Online.


These brand new player vs. player modes bring a range of intense new competitive challenges to GTA Online. Adversary Modes will unlock as players progress through Heists.

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. 

Siege Mentality
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.

The Los Santos daily hustle just got a little more lucrative. Whether you tend towards Jobs or free-form activities, Daily Objectives will give you a rotating series of challenges to take on for GTA$ rewards. With three new objectives per day, players can stack up challenges over consecutive days to earn bonuses of up to $500,000.

You and your fellow players also have new opportunities for cash and RP rewards with new activities added to the world in Freemode. Be on the lookout for calls from Lester, who may need help to distract the cops in a specific area while Lester’s accomplices finish their criminal business. Lamar may call looking for help destroying a vehicle or two, while Trevor and Ron need occasional help picking their business rival’s planes out of the sky. Along with GTA$ and RP bonuses, there are all-new Awards available for completing these challenges with style.

There's also a new in-game Email notification system that will allow you to contact and message any of your GTA Online friends, no matter what session they’re in - as well as a host of new Awards that yield new items including exclusive t-shirts and car modifications.

Everything detailed here will be added to GTA Online for consoles in tandem with Heists on March 10th and on day one for PC when it launches on April 14. Stay tuned to the Newswire for more news, including our suggestions on how you can ready your crew to take down scores when Heists launch next week.

                            Does anybody know, in order to get the criminal mastermind bonus do you have to complete every heist and setup without dying, or does the bonus still count if you die as long as you completely restart that heist? For example if I die in the very last mission on the very last heist, do I only have to restart the last heist and it's setups all over? Or do I have to go back all the way to the flecca job and start from square one?

                            Hey Rockstar, GTA V is honestly one of my favorite games of all time (if not my favorite) when I had the opportunity to buy a pc and pre order gta 5 for it, I didn't even hesitate. Now...I'm afraid I may not be able to run it very well :( Im using a gtx 850m gpu and an i7 4710hq processor but idk if that will be able to run the game at mid settings and a stable framerate. Do you have aNY knowledge about how that would run?

                                An idea that might be useful is adding a cosmetic surgeon to the city of Los Santos in online. I recently had issues with my character which Rockstar fixed pretty quickly and I'm very grateful for, but it would make it easier for the players to make quick fixes to their characters without having to go to the support site. Some peoples characters get screwed in creation, whether it's glitch, a prank from someone in the house, or whatever. Just make it expensive in game so it's not spammed and causes even more glitched, and makes it feel like an accomplishment to get your character just the way you want without the stress of, "character changes are final and cannot be altered. Proceed?" Plus it would make a little sense with l los Santos being a 'plastic' city, as the radio calls it.
