GTA Online (the multiplayer module of GTA V) has received the Arena War update today, which brought with it an interesting novelty – several new game modes that are reminiscent of the Mad Max movies (as well as several games, such as Twisted Metal). They give the player the opportunity to take part in clashes with the use of customized vehicles. These games take place in special arenas.
Enter the Arena War, where ruthless gladiatorial combat meets the bleeding-edge of vehicular modification technology in one spectacular – and highly combustible – competition. Sign up and embark on an entirely new career under the stratospheric dome of the Maze Bank Arena, one that involves turning your opponent’s brains into pulp on the steering wheel in the name of entertainment, courtesy of Alan Jerome Productions, reads the developer’s description.
We have seven different modes at our disposal: Hot Bomb, Wreck It, Games Masters, Carnage, Flag War, Tag Team and Here Come The Monsters. The @therealjackster Twitter account has posted a short gameplay fragment from the first mode.
Starting the competition is quite easy – just go to the Arenawar.tv website on our character’s phone. The first step must be to buy one of the vehicles designed for this kind of fun (names and prices – in GTA dollars – are included below) or to modify one of the cars we own. The patch also adds a new office space with a special two-story garage.
New vehicles in Arena War:
- Apocalypse Cerberus – $3,870,300
- Apocalypse Scarab – $3,076,290
- Apocalypse Brutus – $2,666,650
- Apocalypse Imperator – $2,284,940
- Apocalypse ZR380 – $2,138,640
