Rockstar have also announced a brand-new addition to the permanent roster of GTA Online Adversary Modes for PS4, Xbox One and PC. In the spirit and tradition of American Football this Thanksgiving week, Rockstar have released a new mode entitled “Running Back”.
Two teams (a total of 4-8 players) square off from opposing sides of a roadway. The elusive Runner, behind the wheel of a Benefactor Panto, must go the distance and get across the end zone line at the far end of the highway with the help of their offensive teammates in BF Biftas. Meanwhile, their defensive-minded opponents (also in Biftas) must ruthlessly block, crash and pummel their way to try to stop them.
This new mode is available at three different locations: Raton Canyon Bridge, La Mesa Bridge and Zancudo Tunnel.
