'GTA Online' Update Adds New Game Mode, Double Rewards Opportunities

GTA Online continues to roll out updated game modes, including today's addition the Running Back (Remix). Along with the changes to Running Back, this week's update adds new items for sale, offers opportunities for double GTA$ and RP bonuses and even a reward simply for logging in.

Running Back is the latest mode to get the Remix treatment in GTA Online Rockstar

Running Back (Remix) features the same basic gameplay as the original. One team's goal is to escort a small car to an end zone within a time limit, while the other team's goal is to make sure the vehicle doesn't make it. The remixed game mode adds seven new tracks, and upgrades every vehicle to be a Tezeract (except the one small car which remains the tiny electric Panto.)

Play any of the new remix tracks through Oct. 1 to receive double the GTA$ and RP rewards. Other bonuses available this week include a 2X boost on Nightclub Popularity and a 25 percent speed boost to both Nightclub Warehouse and Biker Business production through Sept. 24.

These liveries have some neat swirling patterns, and who doesn't want to look as cool as possible while roaring through a city on a flying motorcycle?
