In Power Play, today’s new update to Grand Theft Auto Online on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, power-ups change the rules of urban warfare – giving players the chance to boost themselves and their allies with special abilities, or even screw with their opponents in pursuit of ultimate victory.
The effects of these six power-ups are temporary and will need to be timed wisely. Power-ups include:
Beasted: Transform into the Beast and use special powers like invisibility, super jump, and super strength.
Zoned: Slow down time for all players, giving snipers a tactical advantage over exposed enemies.
Doped: Dull your enemy’s senses with a trippy green haze; they’ll never see that flank coming…
Raging: Unleash a rampage with your entire team by inflicting increased damage while taking reduced damage.
Flipped: Scramble your opponents by picking up Flipped, temporarily inverting all enemy camera controls and mixing team chat to truly get in their heads.
Dark: Take your team off the grid for well-timed sneak attacks.
Each player can use one power up at a time, but layers of strategy exist through stacking power-ups with other teammates, or triggering power-ups to counteract enemy team advantages. Play this new Adversary Mode now via the Jobs menu, or grab your best gunmen and battlefield tacticians to maximize 2X GTA$ and RP in the Power Play Playlist all week long.
NEW SUPERCAR: THE GROTTI X80 PROTO
Today’s update also features the addition of the blazing-fast Grotti X80 Proto to the Supercar roster at Legendary Motorsport. The space-age, low-profile body harnesses a beastly engine, making for a finely tuned machine ready for dominance – especially handy when needing to make Special Cargo Deliveries in a hurry. Escaping wanted levels has never looked so good.
