While it’s not the reveal of a big DLC update, it’s something: Rockstar has unveiled their next event week, which also happens to coincide with the release of GTA Online’s next Adversary Mode. The previously leaked (guess it was correct after all) name for it seems to have been accurate and in keeping with the innuendo theme of last month’s Inch By Inch.
While we thought so up until now as well, dismissing the previous leaks of this mode as misinterpretations of the new maps for Inch By Inch, now we can truly and accurately say that there is no more leaked content yet to be released. For the first time in months, the future is truly unknowable.
Of course, players are already speculating and wishing for the features of the next GTA Online update. The most popular idea is that of a Biker themed DLC. The idea has gained so much traction over the months that there is an entire movement with a petition going on to convince Rockstar to get it done and release it.
While we don’t know anything about the next “big” DLC, Rockstar has finally unveiled the new game-mode of the upcoming small-scale update. The devs have really been hot on the idea of Adversary Modes in the past few months, with the all new “In And Out” adding to that craze early next month.
The humorously named (again) Adversary Mode will become available in GTA Online on the 3rd of May. Rockstar describes In And Out as a new twist on regular Capture game-mechanics. A team of nimble but vulnerable attackers must steal not one but 8 packages from the heavily armed defending team in the time limit.
The Mode promises a more serious tactical aspect being introduced to GTA Online, which it lacked until now. While many other modes and Heists especially required an extremely high level of team coordination and communication, the setup of In And Out will ensure the failure of any team that doesn’t plan ahead.
In and Out will launch with three maps to boot. If we take previous Adversary Modes such as Inch By Inch as an example, chances are that there will be more maps added in a future GTA Online update.
No Adversary Mode announcement can go without a sweet little double RP and GTA $ event week these days and this case is no different. Rockstar is offering a number of discounts alongside select opportunities to earn some extra cash. The event will last until the 5th of May.
Of course, since we are celebrating the release of a new mode here, the focus for the double payouts will be Adversary Modes. Rockstar has put together a rotating event playlist of the most popular modes.
Through the 30th, Hunting Pack, Relay and Offense Defense will grant double rewards, followed by Hasta La Vista, Every Bullet Counts and Keep the Pace through the 2nd.
Following the release of In And Out on the 3rd, the last playlist running till the end of the event will provide double rewards on all three maps of the new mode.
All GTA Online events need their discounts and there are plenty of them this time around. Ammu-Nation is slashing the prices of grenades and sticky bombs by 20%, Assault Rifle mods and Combat MGs by 25% and SMG Ammo by 50%.
The new Adversary Mode is probably only here to tide us over until the next big GTA Online DLC is revealed.
Are you hyped for In And Out, or are you more eager to see what the next GTA Online update will be about?
