Years after the initial launch of Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games is still adding new online content to current-gen platforms. Continuing their ongoing commitment to support GTA Online, the developer surprised fans this week by releasing yet another new Adversary Mode for users to enjoy.
Titled “Every Bullet Counts,” the newly added GTA V match type puts four players against one another in a series of deadly new challenges. As detailed on the official Rockstar Newswire blog, the latest Adversary Mode arms players with a very small supply of ammunition. Once they are out of bullets, competitors must finish the match up close with bladed melee weapon.
“Two bullets. One life. No mercy. The assemblage of GTA Online Adversary Modes for PS4, Xbox One and PC grows stronger today with the release of the brand new Every Bullet Counts – an intense Last Man Standing variant with a unique twist to keep you on your toes and constantly on your guard.”
The maps for the new Adversary Mode were handpicked to ensure that the matches remain dangerously intimate as the areas force players to stay in closed quarters filled with twists and turns. However, GTA Online‘s newest content won’t allow gamers to simply hide. Anyone that tries to stand still for even a short amount of time will have their current location broadcast to all other participants.
“Tooth and claw is the order of the day, as this Free-For-All mode demands specific skills of its participants including marksmanship, stealth and timing. Campers and lurkers be warned: anyone staying still for more than 5 seconds will have their blip revealed on the map, making them an easier target for enemies who are wisely moving from cover to cover.”
There are a total of four different locations where GTA V‘s newest Adversary Mode can take place such as the Tequi-la-la nightclub and Michael’s mansion. To help players quickly try out on of the “Every Bullet Counts” matches, Rockstar Games has enabled a new GTA Online play list this week that allows users to easily queue into all four of the new maps.
Rockstar Games will also be showing off a live stream of GTA Online‘s newest content this Friday as members of the development team play alongside a currently unannounced special guest. Rockstar Games has not yet revealed that there will be a special event held this weekend to celebrate the launch of the new mode, but the developer has always honored new Grand Theft Auto V content by offering special in-game rewards in the past so fans should pay attention to Rockstar Games’ official social channels to learn more about a possible upcoming weekend event.
It’s no surprise that Rockstar Games continues to release new content for Grand Theft Auto Online after Strauss Zelnick, CEO of parent company Take-Two Interactive, revealed that in-game digital purchases within GTA Online accounted for 39 percent of the all revenue this past quarter. This is even a more impressive feat considering the fact that all post-launch Grand Theft Auto V content has been released for free, leaving all proceeds to come entirely from fans buying in-game currency.
As the Inquisitr reported late last month, however, Zelnick reassured gamers that the success of GTA Online won’t change their strategy for how the future of the Grand Theft Auto series is handled. The Take-Two boss promises that GTA VI, as well as any other planned installment of the franchise, will continue to focus primarily on providing users with a quality open-world, single player experience. Any plans for future online features will have to work around those requirements first.
Are you happy that Rockstar Games keeps releasing new competitive Adversary Modes for GTA V or would you prefer to see some more substantial new additions like more cooperative contact missions?
