Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and Rockstar Games is celebrating it Grand Theft Auto-style with opportunities to make a substantial amount of cash, a slew of discounts, as well as a new vehicle to cruise around Los Santos in.

According to the press release, the new update introduces the Vapid Hustler, a throwback two-door vehicle, which is now available for purchase via Legendary Motorsport for $625,000. Aside from a sleek new vehicle added to its ever-growing car roster, Grand Theft Auto Online‘s latest update is also offering a promotion on select Adversary Modes. Now until Monday, February 19, five Adversary Modes – Deadline, Lost vs. Damned, Resurrection, Slasher, and Till Death Do Us Part will be offering double GTA$ and RP.

Deadline places up to four players in differently colored Shotaros which are over a sizeable levitating platform the goal of this Adversary mode is to take out the rival players by using the bike’s energy trail to hinder their paths. Any player that comes into contact with their rival’s bike trail will instantly explode and lose a life; the player that survives the longest wins the match.

Lost vs. Damned has up to ten players divided into two teams: the Angels and the Demons. The Angels, which are equipped with white clothing and “Cupid” masks, and the Demons who sport red clothing and “Red Monster” masks. The time will cycle switch between day and night will alter every sixty seconds. During the daylight, the Angels have an advantage and will have access to an array of weapons, which they can use to kill the Demons who will only be equipped with nothing more than a Machete, however, if a Demon kills an Angel with their melee weapon, the Angel’s will lose a point. When night falls, however, the roles are reversed.

Resurrection has two teams, with up to eight players pitted against each other in seven locations where they fight until all players on the opposing team are wiped out. The conditions of this Adversary Mode is that each player only has one life, meaning if a player dies, they will remain as a spectator until a teammate kills another player on the opposing team, resurrecting the teammate.

Slashers has gamers splitting into two groups to battle out to the death, but here is the catch the entire game is played in the dark. Players will be placed on either the Slashers, a group equipped with machetes and shotguns, and the Hunted, a group of players weaponless and have only a flashlight and thermal vision to keep them safe.

Till Death Do Us Part, players are divided into teams of 2. Although the mode acts very similar to Last Man Standing the unique condition in Till Death Do Us Part is each couple shares one life, meaning if one player dies the other one will follow their significant other to the grave by committing suicide.

Lastly, gamers can save up to 25% off on select clothing, properties, vehicles, and weapons; a full rundown of all eligible items will be provided below this article.
