It looks like Christmas has come early to Grand Theft Auto Online, or rather, Halloween.
A few weeks before the Halloween update for GTA Online usually lands, Rockstar Games has released Judgement Day. This new GTA Online update adds a new Adversary mode that lets players play in opposite teams as powerful "riders" who must hunt down the "hunter" who are just trying to survive through the night. We're not quite sure if Rockstar took inspiration from Terminator or Ghost Rider, but the design is spot on.
The rules for Judgment Day are simple: the "Riders" will chase down the "Hunted" equipped with an LCC Sanctus Motorbike and a wide range of power-ups such as more weapons, abilities as well as extra health and speed. Among these extra perks include a double barrel shotgun, thermal vision, and a heartbeat sensor, among others.
All of these powers will come in handy as the only way for riders to win is to eliminate all of the hunted. But, if you think that the hunter are completely helpless, they're not. Although at a disadvantage, the hunted do get access to a handful of exclusive weaponry scattered all over the map.
The Halloween update for GTA Online officially went live on October 6 and won't end until next month. Payers will get double rewards in the brand-new Adversary Mode during this time. You'll also get a $GTA300K bonus if you win 3 rounds.
Here's everything else that was added to GTA Online as part of the latest update:
- Help keep the business of Franklin and Lamar alive or complete any Short Trip this week to get a "Gray Vintage Frank Mask." Rewards will also be doubled for the entire week.
