on January 2, 2017 11:44 AM

Rockstar Games announced  that a new bike and game mode have been added to GTA Online in an update today.

The bike added is the Pegassi FCR 1000. The following description was given for the new vehicle:

This fully-featured beaut of a bike treads the fine line between old-school, no-frills engineering and a tight-trousered hipster’s delight. An instant classic, this bike will be the envy of your grandpa, even if he did disown you.

The new Adversary mode added in this update is called Vehicle Vendetta, which has two teams of players fighting for power-ups that will turn the tide of battle. The following list was given for power ups in this mode:

  • Beast: Automatically transforms you into a Rhino Tank.
  • Detonator: Removes obstacles and objects from the arena.
  • Bomb: Place up to three bombs around the map to destroy trailing enemies.
  • Rockets: Fire rockets at oncoming drivers to incapacitate them.
  • Repair: Returns vehicle back to max health.
  • Ghost: Become translucent, allowing you to drive through enemy vehicles to steal their power-ups.
  • Jammed: Forces the accelerator on for the enemy team’s vehicles.
  • Flipped: Reverses the enemy team’s steering, acceleration and braking controls.
  • Zoned: Slows down time for all players.
  • Deadline: Automatically switches you onto the Nagasaki Shotaro complete with devastating light trail.
  • Random: Chance to collect any power-up except Detonator.
