New Running Back Adversary Mode in GTA Online Today

Posted 3 days, 19 hours ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Today, we've got a brand-new addition to the permanent roster of GTA Online Adversary Modes for PS4, Xbox One and PC. 

In the spirit and tradition of American Football this Thanksgiving week, we present a new mode entitled “Running Back”.

Two teams (a total of 4-8 players) square off from opposing sides of a roadway. The elusive Runner, behind the wheel of a Benefactor Panto, must go the distance and get across the end zone line at the far end of the highway with the help of their offensive teammates in BF Biftas. Meanwhile, their defensive-minded opponents (also in Biftas) must ruthlessly block, crash and pummel their way to try to stop them. 

This new mode is available at three different locations: Raton Canyon Bridge, La Mesa Bridge and Zancudo Tunnel.

By the way, tune in to see us playing Running Back and other recently released Adversary Modes later today on Twitch or YouTube at 5pm Eastern with special guests.

Grand Theft Auto Online: Halloween Surprise

Posted 4 weeks, 2 days ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

From now through November 16th in GTA Online, special Halloween treats will be available to the residents of Los Santos and Blaine County on PS4, Xbox One and PC. And no tricks here – once acquired these special items will remain in your inventory, even after November 16th.

Navigating the freeways of Los Santos just got more terrifying with the addition of these two ghastly new vehicles. Show your dark side while getting around in the Lurcher Hearse and the Fränken Stange – both available for a limited time only, along with 20 ghoulish new Bobbleheads that can be added to the dashboard of any customizable Lowrider.

Strike fear into your opponents by donning one of the horrific new masks now available in the Monsters section of Vespucci Movie Masks. If you and your Crew are tackling a Heist between now and November 16th, a new Halloween mask category will be the default option on all Heists. 30 Spooky new styles of Face Paint are also available to help you get into the spirit of the season.

Enjoy thrills and suspense with the lights out in this tense new Adversary Mode for up to 8 players. Run, hide, and fight to survive in the darkness as the player designated as the Slasher stalks their prey with a Shotgun. Use your new Flashlight to navigate if you dare, but be careful not to reveal your position or you’ll quickly become prey. Survive for 3 minutes and you’ll get the chance to return the favor with a Shotgun of your own.

Stay tuned for details on this weekend's special Halloween activity, including a livestream this Friday October 30th at 5pm ET featuring the Rockstar Broadcast team and special guests to be announced.

GTA Online: Lowriders Now Available

Posted on October 20 2015, 7:40am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

GTA Online: Lowriders is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC as an automatic update. This latest addition to GTA Online features Benny's Original Motor Works, the hottest vehicle customization garage in Los Santos. Located in Strawberry, just south of the Olympic Freeway, Benny's specializes in custom Lowrider modifications for select vehicles including two brand new rides – the Declasse Moonbeam van, which allows for two-handed weapons to be fired from the back doors, and the Willard Faction, as well as four classics already in-game.

Another satisfied customer exiting Benny’s Original Motor Works.

Any of these six select vehicles can be customized to the hilt inside and out, with Hydraulics, Engines, Steering Wheels, Rims, Tires, Gear Shift Levers, Horns, Bobbleheads, rear window Plaques, Vanity Plates & Plate Holders, Soundsystem Mods, custom Paint Jobs and much more. For just a taste of what Benny's has to offer, check out yesterday's video

Enlist your friends and Crewmates to help Lamar take on the Ballas and Vagos.

Meanwhile, Lamar is hatching a scheme to become the ruler of Los Santos’ Lowrider scene, and needs some loyal subjects to help put him on the throne. To do so, you’ll be taking on the biggest gangs in the city through a mix of subterfuge, skill and pure firepower. Keep an ear out for Lamar’s phone calls and tackle eight new Contact Missions charting his quest for power.

Fresh arrivals at Ammu-Nation include the rapid fire Machine Pistol and the devastating Machete. While you're there, why not pick up newly available luxury weapon finishes for a selection of existing weapons including the Special Carbine and Assault SMG.  You’ll also notice that Ammu-Nation has reorganized to make room for all the new weaponry.


  • Keep the Pace – Stay above a minimum speed while racing around courses littered with jumps and obstacles. If you slow down too much, you’ll explode.
  • Offense Defense – Teams of two split into Runners and Protectors. Runners aim to be the first to get to the end of a route. Protectors, in faster and more powerful vehicles, must block and run opposing Runners off the road, while protecting their Runner from the other teams.
  • Relay – A team Race in which players take turns, each completing a lap before tagging a teammate. Non-active drivers wait in the pen to be tagged, while active drivers complete a lap for their team.

Expand your property portfolio up to a maximum of four Apartments or Garages. There's never been a better time to purchase that extra space to store all these new custom Lowriders – and from now through this Sunday October 25th, Dynasty 8 is offering a one-time 25% REBATE on your next qualified purchase of a property with a 10-car garage. Qualifying is easy – just have your email address verified with the Social Club, be on the Rockstar Mailing List and be a member of any Social Club Crew. To fulfill the requirements, login to your Social Club profile – and if you're already qualified, just purchase any property with a 10-car garage. 

It’s all in the details – customize your rides from bumper to bumper and everything in between. 

The Scene Creator is a brand new feature added to the Rockstar Editor's Director Mode, enabling you to create custom settings for capturing your Rockstar Editor clips. Select from over 200 available props (including explosives) and position them to create the perfect backdrop. You can also save up to four scenes so you can reuse them whenever you like.


  • New clothing, hair, tattoos and accessories: Dozens of new options to match your new Lowriders.
  • Personal Vehicle Remote: You can now use the Player Interaction Menu to remotely open your trunk, doors or hood to show off your new rides.  You can also turn on the engine, lights and the radio all while standing outside admiring your vehicle.
  • Freemode Weapon pickups: 200 separate weapon pickups are now scattered across Los Santos and Blaine County. Keep an eye out for them as you roam through Freemode.
  • Changes to Performance Mod Unlocks: Performance mods are now more accessible and unlock by rank, as well as via Race wins. 
  • Destroy Last Place: A new option has been added to Races, upping the stakes for those in the back of the pack. The host can set it to be effective each lap, every 15 seconds, every 30 seconds or every 60 seconds – and the player in last will be blown up at the corresponding interval.
  • Extra Weapons in the Creator: All previously released weapons that are not restricted by time-limited events will now be available for use in the Creator tool.
  • Quick Ammo Restock Option: Quickly refill your ammo directly from the Player Interaction Menu.  Quickly add rounds to any weapon, or max out your ammo for that weapon type.
  • Pearlescent Crew Color: New paint options for Crew members in the Mod Shop.
  • New Player Actions: Three new player actions will be available via the Player Interaction Menu: Chicken, Chin Brush and No Way.
  • Updated PC Mouse Control Options: An option has been added to the Settings Menu to allow players to swap between Roll/Pitch and Yaw/Pitch mouse flying control types.

If there's something you'd like to see added to GTA Online in a future update, make sure to email us directly at to let us know, and stay tuned to the Newswire for news on future updates.

With next week’s release of GTA Online: Lowriders for PS4, Xbox One and PC – lovers of cars and customization all across Los Santos and Blaine County will have a suite of brand new options and a new place to go get them. Introducing Benny’s Original Motor Works, a new customs shop in downtown Strawberry that offers a huge range of lowrider customizations that can turn your classic junker into a high-spec, tricked-out king of the streets.

Deck out your engine block with covers and air filters, coat your interiors with velour, leather and patterns, choose custom colors and designs for your dials, or add a new steering wheel and custom shift levers. Give your ride lift with hydraulics - the more powerful the pumps, the higher you can bounce. And boost your stereo’s performance with new speakers and subs in the back. 

Then, meet up with friends and fellow car enthusiasts to show off your new rides – use the Player Interaction Menu while inside or outside the car to open up the vehicle doors, hood and trunk, switch on the engine to flash your neons and bump your favorite radio station for all to admire. Crew car shows are about to go next level.

And keep an eye out for calls and texts from Lamar – he’s making moves of his own through a series of new missions and he’s going to need your help. You’ll want to hit up your trusted allies, wheelmen, and sharpshooters for backup too, as things are going to get hectic.

Get stocked with the fully automatic Machine Pistol or Machete from Ammu-Nation. The upwardly mobile can also expand their garage space and fleet of vehicles with the addition of the oft-requested fourth purchasable property. There’s also tons of new clothing, hair and accessory options as well as 3 new Adversary Modes and more.

GTA Online: Lowriders arrives for PS4, Xbox One and PC as an automatic update on Tuesday, October 20th. See more screens from next week’s update below.
