Three years after its console debut, Rockstar continues to release new content for GTA: Online and this one is bad to the bone. The latest update, Bikers, and will give players the opportunity to live out their Son’s of Anarchy dreams by forming a biker gang.
“GTA Online: Bikers opens up an entirely new part of the criminal underbelly of GTA Online, bringing proper Motorcycle Clubs to the roadways and ever-evolving illicit markets of Blaine County and Los Santos.”
“Form a Biker gang, establish a Clubhouse, start a reputable business, customize new rides including classic choppers, quad and sport bikes, battle rival Motorcycle Clubs and more.” – Biker’s Trailer Description
Grand theft auto has a storied history with bikers, going back to GTA 4 DLC The Lost and The Damned. The story of the DLC was heralded by fans and even carried over into the sequel, with the DLC’s beloved protagonist Johnny being bludgeoned to death by one of GTA V main characters (and beloved psychopath) Trevor.
Similarly to the “Further Adventures in Finance and Felony,” the latest update will allow players to rise through the ranks in a gang to become it’s leader, earning money to invest in clubhouses and new vehicles in bike-themed missions.
The update also includes new weapons and melee options for players to use while riding on the bikes. Users will be able to use a Battle Axe, Pool Cue, and a Pipe Wrench, quenching many fans nostalgic thirst for a “Road Rash” type of game that has been missed since the 90’s.
The Bikers update officially went live yesterday, on alongside the trailer posted above, for both PC, Xbox One, and PS4. For more information on GTA: Online, be sure to check back regularly, and let us know your experiences with the update in the comments!
