Grand Theft Auto Gets New Bike and Game Mode Today

Another free update for your racing pleasure.

Rockstar Games has released yet another free update for the game. A post on the Rockstar Newswire informs players that the update includes the Pegassi FCR 1000 motorcycle, which is described as “an instant classic” that will be “the envy of your grandpa” and there is also the Vehicle Vendetta Adversary mode.

In Vehicle Vendetta, GTA Online players team up and speed around in vehicles in order to snag a variety of powerups. These powerups include ‘Beast’, which turns a player’s vehicle into the Rhino Tank, ‘Ghost’ which allows players to “turn translucent” and drive through enemy vehicles to steal their powerups. ‘Deadline’ turns a player’s vehicle into the Nagasaki Shotaro, which is a Tron-inspired motorcycle that was added in the previous update.

Those who play Vehicle Vendetta have an extra sweet deal going on during now and January 17th. They get double XP and GTA$ as a reward for playing during this time frame. GTA Online‘s stunt races will also yield rewards in the form of double XP and double GTA$ from January 3rd (but it is unknown when this offer ends). Racing Alley is a Premium Race until January 16th and offers extra cash and triple RP.

In addition, even though the season of giving is drawing to a close, there’s one last chance to grab a late holiday gift – log in before the end of today for a free Firework Launcher bonus to celebrate the New Year with a bang.
