Overtime Rumble comes to GTA 5 Online

Rockstar just keeps smashing it, with their release of high-quality game modes for GTA5 Online. This time it’s Overtime Rumble in adversary mode. To put it simply its Car Darts!

Imagine the calm, rigorous fun of launching yourself through the sky at the centre of a distant target in a Ruiner 2000 with only the onboard parachute separating a top score from a deadly fireball. Well, Overtime Rumble is just like that, only you and every other adrenaline junkie in Los Santos are all hitting the accelerator at the same time. This can only end well.

This team-based vehicular remix of Darts is for up to 10 players, and has you trying to land your Ruiner 2000 on platforms of various sizes, each worth anywhere between 1 and 5 points.

Accuracy is rewarded with Double GTA$ & RP now through July 17th in Overtime Rumble.

The new game mode is incredibly simple, but quite difficult and immense amounts of fun! The TiX crew played and streamed this earlier in the week, and it was one of the most fun nights of multiplayer madness in a while! Catch the video here – TiX plays GTA5 Overtime Rumble

Tron Light Cycles come to GTA Online

Ever fancied taking to the streets of Los Santos and reliving the famous Tron movie moments on LIght Cycles?. Well now’s your chance as Rockstar Games bring you their latest DLC for GTA Online, Deadline.

Take to the streets on your blazingly fast Nagasaki Shotaro as up to four players compete in the new Deadline Adversary Mode. Like Light Cycles, each player is mounted on a different colored Shotaro, which emits a light trail as you race through the arena. Make calculated movements to force opponents to cross your trail’s path and take advantage of strategic power-ups for a competitive edge; use Boost to speed ahead and cut off your opponents, slow down time with Zoned for precision movement, or leap your opponent’s light trail with Hop. Any player unfortunate to come into contact with a light trail will meet an explosive ending.

Playing the new Deadline Adversary Mode will unlock the bike for purchase at Legendary Motorsport, and the Deadline Racing Outfit will be available at any clothing store. Like any new deal, for a limited time only, owners of the Shotaro will also receive a free Nagasaki Tee — whooooo!

GTA Online: Bikers update now available

GTA V is the game that keeps on giving, and Rockstar have just given us another update to GTA Online, with the new Bikers update.

Introducing a host of new features including Motorcycle Clubs, Clubhouses, running businesses, 13 new vehicles, and much much more, the free update promises to inject an element of badassery into GTA Online.

Along with all the new toys, a brand new race mode has also been introduced. Slipstream pits teams of riders against each other, as they vie to be the first over the finish line. As teams fight for the lead, they need to stick together to hit checkpoints, and take full advantage of their opponent’s slipstreams to gain additional speed boosts. To add an element of Road Rage, melee attacks are now available to knock other players off of their bikes, so you can gain that important lead.


To commemorate the release of GTA Online: Bikers, there is a special Bikers Bonus Week which will run until October 10, with unlockable rewards and discounts. Play this week to unlock special clothing items, and get a discount on body armour, ammo, and weapon tints.

GTA Online: Bikers is now available to anyone who owns GTA V, and all new content will be added with a quick game update on your Xbox One.

Biker Gangs coming to GTA Online

Ever wanted to run your own Biker Gang, well that dream could come true as the next big addition coming to GTA Online is Bikers. Form and lead your very own Motorcycle Club for up to 8 players. Similar to the CEO role introduced in a previous update, bikers will bring new roles to your gang, from Fresh Prospects to Club President and a ton of new motorcycles. To top it off you also will get access to your very own Clubhouse, special custom bike mechanic and those special venues for your seedy business adventures.
