GTA Online just keeps bringing more and more games and activities for fans of the mayhem-fueled multiplayer mode of Grand Theft Auto V, and a couple incoming features sound like they’ll be a ton of fun.

Rockstar Games teased new game modes, races and cars coming to its popular GTA Online, including two new Adversary Modes called Resurrection “a gallows humor take on dodgeball” and an homage to top-down 2D GTA games appropriately called Top Down.

Adversary Modes are game modes created by Rockstar that take the world of Grand Theft Auto and inject fun, interesting rules to make unique minigames like Deadline, a Tron-like motorcycle game where players have to avoid hitting the trails of other players’ motorcycles, and Slasher, a game with one shotgun-wielding “slasher” that hunts down flashlight-wielding players who only receive their own shotguns if they manage to survive for three terrifying minutes.

Neither Top Down nor Resurrection are explained in detail, but Top Down is almost guaranteed to keep at least one player’s camera fixed in a top-down angle. Resurrection may keep players on two sides like traditional dodgeball but replaces the typical balls with bullets.

Some of the new races are tied to specific cars like the Blazer Aqua, which can race on both land and sea. The Rocket Voltic’s rocket propulsion will be utilized to launch across massive gaps and the Ruiner 2000 will free-fall in vehicular base jumps.

One of the new cars coming to GTA Online is the “blazing fast” Progen GP1 supercar.

There will also be new cars coming to GTA Online from classic GTA games including the Turismo Classic and Infernus Classic, both from Grand Theft Auto III.

Rockstar did not announce exactly when the new content would be hitting GTA Online, just that it would be “coming soon.”
