Rockstar Games has unveiled a new Halloween-themed DLC for the next-gen and PC versions of "GTA Online."
According to the studio, the "Halloween Surprise" DLC for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC is available until November 16.
As detailed by the developer in the Rockstar Newswire, the "Halloween Surprise" features various new content designed specifically for the spooky season. These include two new vehicles such as the Lurcher Hearse and the roadster-looking Franken Stange.
Players can also choose to decorate their customizable vehicles with 20 new ghoulish bobbleheads.
The latest DLC also comes with new face paints and masks that players can use for their heists. These are available in the Monsters section of the Vespucci Movie Masks.
In addition, "Halloween Special" features a new game mode. Titled Adversary Mode, this new gameplay feature can accommodate up to eight players. Channeling the slasher horror genre, the goal of the seven players is to stay alive while evading the single player who has been designated as the shotgun-wielding maniac.
Although gamers can use their flashlights to navigate in the dark, it can also giveaway their position, which could then lead to their in-game deaths. Those who are able to survive for 3 minutes in the new mode will be awarded with a shotgun.
As noted by Rockstar Games, gamers only have until November 16 to get the new "Halloween Surprise" DLC. But even after that date, the items they have acquired through the content update will remain in their inventories.
Aside from the new DLC, Rockstar Games will also hold a special Halloween event for "GTA Online," according to Gamespot. This will happen on a weekend but the developer has not yet revealed the details and exact schedule of the event.
The "Halloween Surprise" DLC is the latest content update released by Rockstar Games for "GTA Online" after "Lowriders." And, like the previous content updates, the latest DLC is only available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
This is because Rockstar Games has decided that it will only support next-gen platforms in terms of new "GTA" content due to the technical limitations of last-gen consoles.
"Unfortunately, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 won't be receiving the addition of Freemode events to 'GTA Online,' but it stems from a desire to push the mode in new and technically-demanding directions," Imram Sarwar, the studio's design director told IGN.
"It's got to the point where no more can be added to last-gen versions without breaking them," he added.
