This week we get something new in Grand Theft Auto Online - something that we haven't seen in quite some time.
While new Adversary Modes being added in weekly updates used to be common, it fell out of vogue - but this week, that trend is rearing its head again. We still get a new car, bonuses and discounts as usual, too.
The new Adversary Mode is called King of the Hill. A team based mode supporting up to 16 players and 2-4 teams, King of the Hill has you doing Master Kenobi proud by securing the high ground. Across 7 maps, you'll need to fight opponents with assorted weapons to remain in control of the scoring zone on top of an elevated area in order to win.
If you were around back when releasing new Adversary Modes was common, this next bit won't come as a surprise - King of the Hill is dishing out 2x GTA$ and RP this week on all maps, so give the new mode a spin while it's paying double!
Joining the new King of the Hill mode are all Client Jobs, also paying out double rewards through the 16th of October. Special Cargo Sell missions also join in on the fun, but they only pay out 2x GTA$ all week without the RP boost to go with it.
Rockstar has kicked off a cross-promotion with Red Dead Online in the spirit of Halloween. If you have a Red Dead Redemption 2 game license activated on your Social Club account, logging into GTA Online anytime through the 12th of December will unlock a special Slaughter Mask for the other game. It isn't, however, available in GTA Online.
If you want something for free in GTA Online, pop down to the Diamond for a chance to win the Principe Deveste Eight via the Lucky Wheel, and check out the Casino Store additions!
A number of items are on 40% and 35% discount this week. The Benefactor Terrorbyte and all Special Cargo Warehouses are both 40% off, to help you get in on those double reward promos in case you don't own either, and you can get a wide selection of vehicles for 35% cheaper including the Dewbauchee Specter, Enus Paragon and more.
