Grand Theft Auto V Update Brings New Drop Zone Mode to Online
Grand Theft Auto V has received an update today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Update 1.32 brings with it some new fixes as well as new content for Grand Theft Auto Online.
The main part of the update which will be of interest to gamers will be the Drop Zone Adversary Mode:
“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.”
Rockstar have released the patch notes for the game which can be viewed below:
