GTA Online adds a battle royale mode with a twist


GTA Online has added a new battle royale mode called ‘Trap Door’, where defeat can mean a drop into the ocean from very high up.

The developers detail this new Adversary Mode on their website. In true battle royale fashion, players try to survive in a rapidly shrinking area by eliminating all opponents with a variety of weaponry. The twist here is that it’s set on a platform high above the ocean. If killed players are banished to the ‘red zone’, which if they don’t make it out in time they’re dropped into the Pacific – but if they escape they can continue playing.

Anyone who participates in Trap Door between now and May 21 receives double GTA$ and RP. There will also be double GTA$ and RP on Biker Business Sell missions and double GTA$ on Smuggler’s Run Sell missions all week long. Smuggler’s Run, of course, is GTA Online’s other battle royale-inspired mode, although as it’s more based around cars it’s probably closer to H1Z1’s Auto Royale mode than Fortnite or PUBG.

Players who participated in last week’s Business Week event should be getting their free money soon. There’s also a number of discounts, which you can check out below.
