You can finally start that digital motorcycle gang you always dreamed of.
Developer Rockstar Games noted on its site today that the Bikers downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto Online will become available as part of an automatic update on October 4 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. GTA Online is the multiplayer part of Grand Theft Auto V, the open-world game that’s one of the top sellers in the industry’s history. GTA Online online has generated over $500 million in revenue. Updates like these keep players engaged, which makes them more likely to spend money on in-game purchases.
The update adds Motorcycle Clubs to GTA Online, which enable groups of up to eight players to ride with each other. Bikers will also include new vehicles, weapons, and clothing.
Rockstar originally announced the Bikers update earlier this month.
