The newest update to GTA Online is arena war, a mix of gladiatorial combat and vehicular competition set to drop tomorrow on December 11th. We’re seeing more and more Battle Royale outings lately (I’m looking at you, Valve and Counterstrike) but Rockstar has never been known to follow trends, and having a unique new mode is just what is needed for GTA Online.
Per Press Release:
Arena War – Coming December 11 to GTA Online
Enter 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.
Compete in all new vehicle types custom built for the Arena across seven explosive new modes. As your Arena War career progresses, you’ll earn Arena Points and use them to rank up and unlock even more toys to take into the Arena or out onto the streets.
There is still a few hours left to catch up on last weeks GTA Online update for those that are interested. As usual, it’s pretty great to see Rockstar Games continuing to support their previous efforts. It would have been easy to abandon ship after launching Red Dead Online, but instead of leaving GTA players in the cold, they continue to support with new content week after week. Rockstar Games hasn’t announced any end to the GTA Online updates, so we expect to see them for the foreseeable future. Latest updates for Red Dead Online can be found here, and Electric Bento’s Red Dead Redemption 2 review can be found here, so check those out before you click away!
Arena War for GTA Online launches tomorrow, December 11th for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
