A brand new year deserves a brand new update, right? Well, at least the good folks over at Rockstar agree with us since they’ve already released a new update for GTA 5 just a few days in. The update isn’t just a gimmick, though, bringing new cool features to the game which further push on the title’s emphasize on taking things to the extreme.
To celebrate 2017, Rockstar also surprised its player base with some nice discounts that are bound to brighten the mood of anyone that didn’t really feel the holiday spirit. Among these discounts, players can enjoy 25% price reductions for multiple items such as masks, armor, weapons, and even warehouse revamps.
Players passionate about motorcycles will be pleased to learn that a new bike is now in the game: the Pegassi FCR 1000. According to the developers, this particular bike encompasses both the spirit of old school bikes as well as elements from modern designs. Bike collectors will definitely be thrilled to get their hands on this one.
If discounts and bikes aren’t your thing, no need to worry: There’s plenty of content left for you to check out. A new game mode called Vehicle Vendetta, where vehicular combat aided by power-ups takes center stage, is now here.
There are all kinds of power-ups, such as the rocket boost, bomb boost, detonator, repair, ghost, jammed, flipped, deadline or beast. There are a couple of other boosts available and they can all be used to shoot and throw stuff at your opponents, gain ghostly properties such as avoiding collision or blowing objects up and out of the way.
