Rockstar has released a brand spanking new trailer for the GTA Online biker DLC, as well as some more info on what you can expect to get up to.
The free DLC – which is available to download now – introduces 13 new vehicles, as well as a host of cool new melee weapons and additional features.
Obviously, the emphasis on the new DLC is becoming the biggest, baddest biker that there ever was. New vehicles include the Nightblade, the Chimera, and the Rat Bike.
Clubhouses, meanwhile, serve as your base of operations. You’ll be able to choose between 12 convenient locations, each equipped with a bar, and fun biker things to do – like arm wrestling, and braiding each other’s beards.
New melee weapons include the battle axe, pool cue, and pipe wrench, all of which can be used to attack while riding your bike (which looks really cool).
If none of that floats your boat, there’s also a new automatic shotgun and a compact grenade launcher.
In addition, the Biker DLC comes with an all-new adversary mode called Slipstream. This is a racing mode that also involves melee combat.
As teams jockey for lead position, taking full and clever advantage of the other players’ slipstreams for speed boosts–and using well timed attacks to melee opponents off their bikes–can be vital in this contest to the bitter end. Seven maps are ready to race now.
Rockstar put together a wonderfully informative post on their website, explaining all the mechanics and extras you can look forward to. Check it out here, or watch the trailer below.
Be aware that this GTA Online expansion is only available to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC – happy biking.
