TRON and Grand Theft Auto CollideNovember 15th, 2016
If you’re a fan of TRON, you are going to love this. The latest Grand Theft Auto Online update, called Deadline, is heavily influenced by the series. Players can race around on TRON-like light cycles and battle each other, leaving light trails in their wake. I don’t play a lot of GTA games, but this one looks pretty fun. I think Rockstar came up with a great idea here and I hope they offer more updates like this.
Here are some more details about the Deadline update:
Turn the streets of Los Santos into a stylish electronic videogame battle to the death with the latest update to GTA Online. Achieve hyper speed on the futuristic Nagasaki Shotaro and demolish foes with the power of your light trail in the new Adversary Mode, Deadline.
NEW VEHICLE: NAGASAKI SHOTARO
Light up the night with the blazingly fast Nagasaki Shotaro. Packed with enough energy to power the Los Santos grid and sporting the looks of an auto-show concept vehicle, the Shotaro delivers a driving experience that is out of this world. Experience the delights of the Shotaro first in the new Deadline Adversary Mode, which will unlock the bike for purchase at Legendary Motorsport. And for a limited time, proud new Shotaro owners will get a free Nagasaki Logo Tee added to their wardrobe.
Deadline pits up to four players against another, each mounted on a different colored Shotaro, which emits a temporary light trail as you ride through the arena. Any competitor unfortunate enough to come in contact with said trail meets an instant explosion. Make calculated movements to force opponents to cross your trail’s path and take advantage of strategic power-ups for a competitive edge; use Boost to speed ahead and cut off your opponents, slow down time with Zoned for precision movement, or leap your opponent’s light trail with Hop.
