'Grand Theft Auto Online' Adds Double Down Adversary Mode, New Motorcycle, Double Rewards, Free Jacket And More

by Rainier on Jan. 14, 2022 @ 9:55 a.m. PST

Set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, Grand Theft Auto V delivers a world of unprecedented scale and detail bursting with life, from mountaintops to the depths of the ocean.

When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.

Switch between the interconnected lives of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as they embark on a series of heists across Los Santos and Blaine County in the biggest, deepest and richest open world experience yet, with game world enhancements that include new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.

Grand Theft Auto V also comes with Grand Theft Auto Online, the dynamic and ever-evolving online universe for up to 30 players, and includes all existing gameplay upgrades and content released since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online.

Rise through the ranks to become a CEO of your own criminal empire by trading contraband or form a Motorcycle Club and rule the streets. Pull off daring co-operative Heists, enter adrenaline-fueled Stunt Races, compete in unique Adversary Modes or create your own content to play and share with the entire GTA community.

Franklin and Lamar return to GTA Online this week in Double Down, a new co-op mode in which players step into the pair’s shoes for a weapon-heavy, close-quarters battle across a variety of Southern San Andreas locations against a shotgun-wielding opposing team with infinite lives.

Available for everyone in GTA Online, Double Down debuts alongside wide-ranging bonuses, including Double Rewards for helping Dr. Dre on The High Society Leak Finale – which features the Dr. Dre track, The Scenic Route.

Double Down: A New Co-Op Experience in GTA Online

Whether you’re holed up in a train yard fighting for your life as Franklin and Lamar, or making a frenzied run at them, both teams earn 3X GTA$ and RP for playing Double Down. Just participating in a round will even net you a lump sum bonus of GTA$200K (delivered within 72 hours).

The Nagasaki Shinobi: Available Now

The latest and greatest from two-wheel powerhouse Nagasaki is a force to be reckoned with. Agile, powerful, and angrier than a bulldog chewing on a wasp, this machine is a work of art asking to be simultaneously caressed and pushed to its limits.
