The GTA Online Halloween update brings Judgement Day to the game

Rockstar Games is bringing Halloween to Grand Theft Auto Online a little earlier this year.

Halloween has arrived early for GTA Online this year.

Not long after it was leaked that GTA Online will be getting its Halloween event soon, Rockstar has introduced a new update that might just give you another reason to go back. GTA Online will enjoy a brand new mode, Judgement Day. In this new Adversary Mode, GTA Online players can either be the "Riders" or the "Hunted" in what Rockstar describes as a "kill-or-be-killed, hide-and-seek scenario."

Rockstar Games gave Riders special abilities such as thermal vision and increased health regeneration, among others, to up the ante. And, oh, they'll be riding a mean motorcycle as they chase down all of those on the other side. As if that wasn't enough, Rockstar is giving hunters a double-barrel shotgun and stone hatchet for good measure. On the other hand, the vulnerable group of the Hunted will have to make do with other weapons on the map that hunters can't pick up. They're not half-bad and they can bring back fallen teammates for every hunter they kill. However, Rockstar really captured the feeling of what it's like to be on the run against a supernatural entity with Judgement Day.


If you play Judgement Day this week, you'll earn double GTA$ and RP as well as a GTA$300K bonus if you win three rounds (it doesn't have to be consecutive).

GTA fans insist that Rockstar is sitting on a GTA 6 teaser.
