GTA ONLINE: ARENA WAR OUT NOW

Recommended Posts

crsN

 

Welcome to a new era of entertainment. Time to sit down, strap in, and battle other would-be opponents in the greatest orgy of sports and automotive gladiatorial combat in human history.

The most deranged vehicles! The most brutal weapons! The biggest crowds! 

Run your own workshop, craft your own juggernauts of destruction, and track your own carnage-filled career. Live from the Maze Bank Arena, this is Arena War.

 

a8447bc5ad22f896a583fe8382f3d7e752a6ff92

 

You signed up for glory, and it's showtime. Step into destruction derbies, rain fire from strategically placed artillery and wreak havoc from the Spectator Box with EMP Drones, self-destructing RC Cars and much, much more.

 

8a2a941cb108e94121700934d898375006fbf2c5

 

No mercy, no disqualification, no safe word. Utilizing a host of new weaponized Bikes, Cars and Trucks specifically engineered for maximum destruction, be the last contender standing in an all-out vehicular brawl under the dome of the Maze Bank Arena.

 

5d1789ed2768736ef414ad29a5eee8d5c87d29df

 

Two teams, two flags, one objective. The classic capture the flag formula — reworked Arena War style to include enough gasoline-chugging violence to appeal to a mainstream audience.

 

ccd45e3e730e69bf673f4cab8575b6748b6742cf

 

If you're any good at driving really fast and turning to the left, then you're off to a good start. Sure, it's theoretically possible to win a round of Wreck It by crossing the line first in a fair-and-square lap race. But that's never happened, because the competition, recently departed Spectators and an ever-evolving set of traps and obstacles are conspiring to reduce you to a smoldering heap of scrap metal. Like the old saying goes, if it's not a race to the death, you're just not taking it seriously enough.

 

6a5a308e00e03a30ed2c9d61967abd880452dc5f

 

Arena War isn't all about ruthless individualism. Sometimes there really is safety in numbers - and in Tag Team you're going to need it. Each team has one player in the arena at a time, and their only objective is to immolate the opposition. Teammates holed up in the Spectator Box have an array of weapons at their disposal to give their partner a destructive edge.

 

4df4ad76789e1db879226e8540b80b1da890668b

 

When it comes to brutal arena designs, you can install the most exquisitely hazardous death traps on the market, but there's just no substitute for the sheer ingenuity and sadism of a properly incentivized human being. One team collects checkpoints, the other uses every fiendish tool the Arena has to offer to make their plans go up in smoke. And be sure to hold onto your grudges: after every round, you switch places.

 

ab69d44b47ab11c3ff2517cc78fbee920614781b

 

For centuries, gladiatorial fights to the death have brought unbridled joy to the masses. In Here Come the Monsters, one team takes to the arena in monster trucks capable of crushing metal and bone into the same bloody dust. The other guys get compact cars and a dose of anxiety meds - but if even one of them survives, they win. Let the games begin.

 

4c8a3c1e2351ab31faddde999bf05443bc21fb0a

 

Life isn't about holding onto good things, it's about passing them on. Like inherited wealth, or a sense of entitlement. Or a high-explosive device. In Hot Bomb, one player has the bomb, and the only way to get rid of it is by crashing into someone else. Throw in a timer and a baying crowd, and survival of the fittest just got an upgrade.

If you're eliminated from a match, pull up a stool in the greatest spectator lounge ever devised: kick back and get a drink or play the Arena War Wheel to claim a variety of prizes (the only form of roulette that has “take control of a weaponized drone” as a possible outcome).

Step into the Arena this week to receive Double GTA$ & RP across the entire Arena War Series.

 

ee90854f309250ace9b23938b5fa35536d9fcf62

 

While the Arena War Series is open to anyone with a dream and a death wish, those that are serious about a career in automotive violence can invest in an Arena Workshop to begin customizing their own fleet of death machines.

After purchasing your Workshop from the new in-game ArenaWar.tv website, an onsite mechanized warfare specialist can help you strip down and supe up an assortment of vehicles. From fitting steel-shredding Buzz Saws to pelvis-shattering Ram Bars, create a chariot fit for battle and lay waste to any unfortunate bastard foolish enough to get in your way.

Head to the Career Wall in the Arena Workshop office to keep track of your progress. In addition to cash & RP, every Arena event you complete awards Arena Points based on your performance. The more AP you earn, the more rewards you'll unlock such as discounts on specialty attire & Outfits, upgrades, modifications and more. You’ll also earn awards and trophies to adorn your trophy case as you progress through your career.

 

6a84417f54e8ea9cac1bc55ea15b41100c48504b

 

Head to the ArenaWar.tv website in game to browse listings for all 12 new Arena Contender Vehicles, each available in Future Shock, Apocalypse and Nightmare styles. Some are ready to go as soon as they’re delivered; some start life as humble road cars, with arena workshop upgrade options that’ll have them ready to burn in no time.

 

168af1a7b669e68f8874569468e7980cb7d6394c

Introducing the Bravado Sasquatch, a Super Heavy-Weight Arena Contender vehicle. Compete and destroy in three styles: Apocalypse, Future Shock and Nightmare.

I can't remember the last time I joined an open lobby...

 

...and I don't see that changing anytime soon.  

 

This one is a bit of a dud for me, although there are a few normal cars coming that I like.

I see potential here. As long as it not like free roam and getting killed over and over by the expert killers. What's going to draw me in is the things to buy (cars, mods, etc). I hope the arena play itself is fun.

I kinda enjoy this dlc.

 

Tho, when I bought the workshop, I got the intro, and I think I was supposed to get a match with the fully upgraded 'Apocalypse Imperator'. The thing is, I just got a black screen, the girl showed me around and the intro was over, so I jumped into some matches, but the thing is, 80-90% of the matches I get in players using the exact same fully upgraded Apocalypse Imperators. I don't quite understand...am I supposed to get it for free? It seems like to me since I only have the non-upgraded dlc cars while other players having fun blasting my ass off with their cannons/mines on their Imperators... Any idea/feedback on this?

Nihilist.

Trash meme PvP update, with a million $ paywall for a glorified adversary mode that's going to die out after a week or two, and precustomized weaponized vehicles.

 

Post apo is what vampires and zombies used to be few years ago - a bandwagon corporate entities try to join and milk prepubescent kids as much as possible before it finally, inevitably, kicks the bucket. And to be fair, there's some (wasted) potential in this update - it could have been pretty interesting, if only it wasn't built on heavy PvP, which as I said, no one will care about in a week or two, like any other adversary mode. If there were activities for solo players, or something competitive yet not involving combat, for example Dirt Ring, maybe this entire new property wouldn't be an absolute insult. I've criticized payouts of nightclubs, and half of biker businesses as well, but at least they can pay back for the initial investment, sooner or later, and don't require multiple other people to even work as intended. Then, some vehicles have a lot of potential too - too bad most of them don't even come in stock variants, which is literally one of the biggest complaints our community has for the game. And of coure there's barely any new clothes, no new hairstyles nor tattoos.

 

I've expected nothing, and that's almost how much I've gotten from this update. I don't care about militarized PvP vehicular combat, I don't care about the paywall property destined to die before christmas, I don't care about most of vehicles, aside from Impaler. What a waste of potential.

I hate the arena mode and the worst part is that you're forced to play it if you want to unlock the space docker for example

most of your time is wasted sitting on f*cking loading screens

Can you unlock the extra stuff by playing Arena Mode with friends? Or does it have to be public?

This is going to see less use than the Facility, and that's saying something. At least we have some nice looking muscle cars to look forward too.

I'm mostly excited for the muscles and the Grotti. 

 

I won't be grinding away in the Arena instead of hunting in Ambarino, but the civilian cars will bring me back to Los Santos more than I had planned.

It seems that this DLC broke a part of character creation because...

Hair overlays have gone missing, so if you want to make a bald character with no hair fuzz, go for it. But without it the hairstyles look like wigs.

Heavy influence from Mad Max and Death Race movies.

 

The Dominators deoppable rear shield is even called "The Tombstone".

 

And a proper V8 Interceptor!

Shunt seems to be bugged, at least on the Dominator. I wasted the cash and saw no effect. Tried using in and out of events and when I was close to another car. I dropped back to the 100% option and the ‘notrous’ works fine.

 

I haven’t experimented with mines yet. Too expensive to make a mistake.
