The following day is going to be another exciting time for the GTA Online fans as Cunning Stunts DLC debuts on PC as well as on Sony and Microsoft’s latest generation of consoles. This free GTA Online DLC is described as “a visually surreal and over-the-top evolution to racing.” The upcoming update, which according to Metro is a cross between Ubisoft’s Trackmania Turbo and Nintendo’s Mario Kart, will highlight Stunt Races described by Rockstar below.
“Stunt Races happen on a massive scale, towering above the Los Santos skyline or soaring between the treacherous blades of RON Alternates Windmill Farm. Vehicles tear upside-down through loops and tubes, launch off ramps with extra propulsion from speed strips, diverge and merge across multiple pathways, and speed through gigantic rings of fire in death-defying new Races.”
Each Race in Cunning Stunts DLC for GTA Online will feature jumps, terrains, gaps, and obstacles that are customized to match characteristics of certain vehicle classes, which includes new Super cars, Motorbikes, and Sports cars. And to complement the new vehicles arriving in the upcoming update, Rockstar made sure that drivers will have the perfect wardrobes by also bringing in new racing suits, motocross gear, and helmets, among others.

As for other GTA Online news, an update was recently made adding three new locations to the team-based Power Play mode of the games. “Square off at Los Santos International Airport, the Port of Los Santos, or take on some turbocharged chaos on the banks of the Alamo Sea,” Rockstar noted.
GTA Online is the multiplayer component of Grand Theft Auto 5 allowing up to 30 players on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The “dynamic and persistent open world” began “by sharing content and mechanics with Grand Theft Auto V, but continues to expand and evolve with content created by Rockstar and other players,” the description read.
“Taking the fundamental concepts of open-world freedom, ambient activity and mission-based gameplay and making them available to multiple players in an incredibly dynamic online world, we offer players the freedom to explore alone or work cooperatively with friends to complete missions. Residents of Los Santos band together to participate in activities and ambient events, or compete in traditional game modes with the entire community, all with the personality and refined mechanics of Grand Theft Auto V.”
