We are only a couple of days into 2017 and already Rockstar have released their first update of the year for GTA 5 Online. The talk had been that this year would be the year that Rockstar would start to wind up the updates for its phenomenal classic, the only problem is that no one seems to have told them that.
The latest update, released yesterday, is called Vehicle Vendetta and the first thing we have to tell you about is the highly customisable Pegassi FCR 1000. This bike “treads the fine line between old-school, no-frills engineering and a tight-trousered hipster’s delight. An instant classic, this bike will be the envy of your grandpa, even if he did disown you.” and it is available to buy right now.
There is also a new game mode available. This mode sees you playing in your vehicle against another crew who are also in their cars. You battle it out for power-ups that can sway the battle in your favour. The power-ups include:
- Beast: Automatically transforms you into a Rhino Tank.
- Detonator: Removes obstacles and objects from the arena.
- Bomb: Place up to three bombs around the map to destroy trailing enemies.
- Rockets: Fire rockets at oncoming drivers to incapacitate them.
- Repair: Returns vehicle back to max health.
- Ghost: Become translucent, allowing you to drive through enemy vehicles to steal their power-ups.
- Jammed: Forces the accelerator on for the enemy team’s vehicles.
- Flipped: Reverses the enemy team’s steering, acceleration and braking controls.
- Zoned: Slows down time for all players.
- Deadline: Automatically switches you onto the Nagasaki Shotaro complete with devastating light trail.
- Random: Chance to collect any power-up except Detonator.
