A pleasant surprise... Rockstar Games updated the Newswire this afternoon with some highlights of what's in store for GTA Online this year. With old-gen character transfers ending next week, the community did expect something to be announced this month as an upgrade incentive, and they weren't wrong!

There's a very cool top down style Adversary Mode mentioned in the article, as well as a descriptive preview of "massive" updates coming to the platform this summer and new content like the highly requested Infernus and mention of "military" hardware... (Hunter anyone?)

Find below a quick summary of Rockstar's plans for GTA Online in 2017:

** Cunning Stunts Update (Part II) releases sometime this month and introduces Special Vehicles to new stunt race circuits

** Gunrunning Update releases sometime this spring and will see us battling new "militias" across the map in new missions with weaponized vehicles and high-powered military hardware

** Special Vehicles are being added to the Content Creator

** New Adversary Modes - Resurrection (a dodgeball style game) and Top Down (literally top down, as a homage to the 2D games!)

** New vehicles - the Turismo Classic, the Infernus Classic and the Progen GP1

** And more updates coming soon over the course of the summer that are yet to be announced
 
Plus Rockstar requests that we keep the feedback coming as they do listen! So if you've still got ideas shoot them an email using their feedback form, and you can always head to our GTA Online section where we have a plethora of wishlist threads to chew on as well. Mmmmm.

"Stock up and bunker down as you take on the craziest militias across the state of San Andreas in another massive update for GTA Online. Featuring brand new weaponized vehicles and exciting new missions, get ready to fight for supremacy in the illegal arms trade and wage war with the latest in high-powered military hardware."

Just a tiny hint of the Hunter coming out has filled me with unimaginable hype. I'm out of likes, checking out threads and posts so fast my PC can't keep up.

 

Please let it be there Rockstar.

The Newswire post about the upcoming update says "[...] with the latest in high-powered military hardware.". From a community point of view, when you mention military most people are going to think of the Hunter because it's the most prominently suggested of it's type. I hope for their sakes it's true, but we're just speculating and it might be less extravagant than we imagine. It seems like the perfect opportunity to bring it in though.

I made it black and white on purpose. Since the club was sadly disbanded and I longer have the pip, I did that to signify that it was dead. Thank you though.

What if it's alive, and you're just not in it? hehehe.

 

Anyway, we're off-topic. 

 

On-topic. I'm really looking forward to how they will pull off the top down adversary mode.

I can't even imagine how it will work. Will it play like GTA 2, with similar controls even for shooting? Like will you not have an actual aim and will just shoot whatever is in front of you? An interesting concept still.

I really think they should make it an optional camera for all gameplay. Have the mode sure, but it seems like a shame to restrict the camera to just one mode.

I'm thinking it may be just like Vehicle Vendetta with mounted guns on cars and then pick-ups like rockets or something. If they pulled it off with characters I'd be very impressed. Though a mode where it's characters and you only use melee would be a real throw-back.

I was imagining something like having a top-down view with weapon pickups and normal character control, but you'd be restricted to shooting whatever was in front of you, akin to the 2D GTA's. You'd control the character's heading instead of the camera.

As much as I would like to see the IV variant, I don't think that it is old enough to be considered "Classic" as I believe on one of the GTA IV websites it is stated as an 03 model.

 

So, I'm guessing it is the F40 (Gta sa version) as it is a late 80's to early 90's super car.

 

And to add onto that, The older one is a super car opposed to a sports car, Making it more appropriate for the "Stunts" theme, But who knows...

 

I'd be happy with either one, Preferably the F40.

Who said that where won't be Cheetah Classic?

Agreed, I think they are saving a nice little catalogues worth of "classics" to surprise us with and bring back later on, these two are just a teaser.

Yawn.

I think this answers the question as to what will happen to GTA Online when Red Dead Redemption 2 is released (as if it wasn't obvious to begin with). Nothing. Nothing is going to happen to GTA Online as all Rockstar has to do is release a car or an Adversary Mode every few weeks or so and the masses of fanboys will be right back to kissing their asses. It's ridiculous.

But for the next week just a few races with Rocket Voltic, Blazer Acqua and Ruiner 2000 looks too weak, they could add some new cars, at least 2 or 3 classics.
