Continuing to support Grand Theft Auto Online with free content, Rockstar Games updated GTA V today with the addition of a new competitive skydiving mode. Players shouldn’t expect to peacefully jump out of a plane in the new “Drop Zone” Adversary Mode for GTA Online. Keeping in line with the theme of the rest of the open-world crime title, users will need to be well-armed for the game’s newest activity.
Giving players a rundown of GTA Online‘s “Drop Zone” on their official blog, the Rockstar Newswire revealed that the new Adversary Mode will challenge multiple teams with holding a specified location for a total of two minutes. However, participants won’t simply be entering the contested area on the ground. At the start of each match, players will instead have to parachute into the target destination prior to fighting for control of the area.

“Freefall your way into Drop Zone, the latest addition to GTA Online on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. In this new Adversary Mode, teams of paratroopers jump from Cargobobs hovering high above, then race to the ground to seize and maintain control of a small, exposed patch of terra firma. No man is an island here – you and your squad mates will need to attack and defend as a unit.”
In addition to the launch of the “Drop Zone” Adversary Mode, Rockstar Games also fixed a long list of known issues in the game with the release of Title Update 1.32 for Grand Theft Auto V. Like the new online DLC, this week’s patch was only released on current-gen platforms so only Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC users will be prompted to download the new update.
Rocktar Games’ official support website posted a full changelog detailing every bug that will be removed from GTA V once Title Update 1.32 is applied. As with many game patches, the update largely serves to improve overall stability in order to give users a smoother gameplay experience. More specific fixes revolve around several issues dealing with some of GTA Online‘s most recently added content such as player-owned yachts and the new VIP system.
This week’s GTA V update also introduces more vehicle modification options to Benny’s Original Motor Works. The in-game garage that previously only worked on lowrider vehicles is now accepting taking custom orders for those wanting to personalize select sports cars. Starting now, players can take the Karin Sultan and Bravado Banshee to the modification garage to purchase several unique upgrades to either high-end vehicle.
Gamers should also expect to enjoy a special event to celebrate all the new Grand Theft Auto V content as Rockstar games promised to honor the latest Adversary Mode with a Double RP weekend soon. Further teasing their upcoming plans for future GTA Online updates, the developer also hinted that they will be adding new Valentines Day-themed items to the game in February that users are “sure to fall in love with.”
While Rockstar continues to add new content for all GTA Online users to enjoy, the team also regularly offers tips by creating online guides for those seeking to get the most out of each DLC update. As the Inquisitr previously reported, the developer recently compiled a list of tips to help users better understand the game’s new VIP and Bodyguard system. The guide offered an in-depth look into both player roles so gamers can gain improved understanding on what it takes to create their own criminal organization.
Do you like that Rockstar Games releases regular online updates for Grand Theft Auto Online in the form of new Adversary Modes or would you prefer that the development team took their time in order to create a true, story-based DLC for GTA V?
