GTA Online has been updated to add a new Adversary Mode, Deadline, along with the futuristic Nagasaki Shotaro motorcycle. The speedy, concept-style bike is unlocked for purchase at Legendary Motorsport once players try out Deadline. The arena racer has four players team up against one another while on different colored, light-trail-emitting Shotaros, trying to outlast each other by avoiding the dangerous trails. Players who take part in the mode can earn Double GTA$ and RP through November 21. Biker Business Sales have begun to celebrate the added bikes, offering 25% off Business supplies and resupplies plus an extra 50% GTA$ and Double RP. Select weapons and tactical vehicles are also on sale.
Bikers have been added to GTA Online. The latest update allows up to eight players to form Motorcycle Clubs and man the organization’s hierarchy with prospects, road captains, and other roles. Each role brings with it a set of abilities, such as being able to set riding formations and calling in hit squads. Players will get together in Clubhouses to play darts, arm wrestle, hang at the bar, and eventually access a custom bike shop. The headquarters will also have meeting rooms to plan out how to free imprisoned allies and take on other jobs via Clubhouse Contracts. Money can be earned from counterfeiting, running drugs, and trading. Players can use their acquired wealth to purchase a wide variety of new items, including bikes, weapons, clothes, and tattoos. Racers can also take part in the new melee-heavy Slipstream for Adversary Mode.

The release also notes “a massive slate of new competitive and co-op gameplay.” Risky vehicle-based business ventures will also be added throughout Los Santos and Blaine County.

Tracks can be created with tools for snapping and stacking objects, splitting checkpoints, and adding loops, tubes, raised tracks, and such hazards as flaming rings. To spice things up, there are over 250 new Stunt Props. Additionally, a new Adversary Mode, Entourage, tasks bodyguards with extracting a target to an extraction point. The additions kick off a week of bonuses. Players will earn double GTA$ and RP by playing the Entourage Playlist, beginning today until August 12, along with 25% off Cunning Stunts tattoos and clothing.
