GTA Online Update: Drop Zone Adversary Mode, customizable wide body cars, & events teased

GTA Online will receive an update today that will introduce Drop Zone which is a new Adversary Mode, and new Sultan and Banshee customizable wide body race cars.

Drop Zone is a four team, 16 player mode with 5 maps:

Freefall your way into Drop Zone, the latest addition to GTA Online on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. In this new Adversary Mode, teams of paratroopers jump from Cargobobs hovering high above, then race to the ground to seize and maintain control of a small, exposed patch of terra firma. No man is an island here – you and your squad mates will need to attack and defend as a unit. 

With four teams and up to 16 players zeroed in on the target area, this mode is fast, chaotic and prone to huge swings in fortune. First team to hold the drop zone for a total of two non-continuous minutes wins. There are five Drop Zone maps, each requiring a unique approach to deal with changes in terrain and cover. These can be found at Pillbox Hill, Richman College, Elysian Island, the Mirror Park cul-de-sac and the Sisyphus Theater. 

Benny’s is also getting in on the update action with two new vehicles heading to the garage.

The Karin Sultan RS and the Bravado Banshee 900R are customizable race cars with exclusive mods:

Bring these rides to Benny’s garage for upgrades into high-performance, wide body race cars – the Karin Sultan RS and the Bravado Banshee 900R and tap into a range of upgrades exclusive to Benny’s. When fully modded, the Sultan RS and the Banshee 900R can even compete with top tier Supercars like the Zentorno and T20.

Rockstar have also advised that there is an upcoming Event Weekend that includes Double GTA$ & RP Playlist, in-game discounts and more, with the dates for that inbound soon.
