Go, GTA. Go, GTA. Go, GTA, goooooooo.
Rockstar Games revealed today that Grand Theft Auto Online is getting a new update that adds over-the-top race tracks and cars to the open-world game. It’s called Cunning Stunts, and it releases on July 12. GTA Online is the multiplayer component of Grand Theft Auto V, one of the best-selling games of all time. It has come out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Rockstar has added free updates to GTA Online like Cunning Stunts since its launch in 2013, which keeps players engaged and spending money on the in-app microtransactions. Those purchases make parent company Take Two a lot of revenue.
You can watch a trailer for Cunning Stunts below.
“Stunt Races happen on a massive scale, towering above the Los Santos skyline or soaring between treacherous blades of RON Alternates Windmill Farm,” Rockstar noted in a press release sent to GamesBeat. “Vehicles tear upside-down through loops and tubes, launch off ramps with extra propulsion from speed strips, diverge and merge across multiple pathways, and speed through gigantic rings of fire in death-defying new races.”
Grand Theft Auto Online already has racing, but its current offerings feel traditional and mostly take place in the city. Cunning Stunts looks more like the crazy sort of racing experience you’d expect from something F-Zero or TrackMania.
Rockstar notes that it will give more details on Cunning Stunts when it launches July 12.
