Heists aren’t the only thing coming to GTA Online next week: players can also expect Adversary Modes, new Daily Objectives and other Freemode activities.
GTA Online’s Adversary Modes are new PvP modes which feature a range of competitive challenges and 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.
Daily Objectives will feature rotating challenges for GTA$ rewards. There will be three new objectives per day and players can stack them up over consecutive days to earn bonuses of up to $500,000 in-game money.
Also new are Freemode Activities which offer players extra cash and RP rewards via new activities added to the world in Freemode. These will come about through a call from Lester, who may “need help to distract the cops” in a specific area.
You may also get a call from Lamar who needs help destroying a vehicle. Then there’s Trevor and Ron who may need occasional help doing something dastardly to planes.
Then there’s GTA$ and RP bonuses, and 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 whether in a session or not.
Everything mentioned above arrives alongside Heists on console March 10. The PC version of Heists will arrive on April 14 when the PC version of the game is released.
