Grand Theft Auto Online Adds an Explosive New Multiplayer Mode

It's like darts but more explosive.

Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto Online is adding a new mode today that lets players shoot their cars at a giant dart board with a chance that your car can blow up if you're not careful.

GTA Online Overtime Rumble

"Overtime Rumble" is a new vehicle mode that the developers say blends "the precision of darts with the carnage of a destruction derby." If you play Overtime Rumble now through July 17, you'll be able to earn double GTA$ and RP rewards.

The way the mode works is like this: up to 10 players rev up their Ruiner 2000, equipped with only an onboard parachute. After launching yourself towards a big floating dart board in the sky, it's up the players to strategically deploy their parachutes and aim for specific platforms of varying sizes worth between one and five points. The more accurate you are, the more points you earn. Miss and you face certain doom.

Rockstar has steadily been adding creative new modes to the studio's increasingly sprawling GTA Online mode. Most recently, the studio released an adversary mode called Dawn Raid, which functions a bit like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Like Battlegrounds, Dawn Raid players jump from a helicopter into a designated area where they will land and scavenge for supplies and weapons to achieve a specific goal, and not get killed in the process.

Rockstar also added a new luxury car, the Grotti Cheetah Classic, for you fans with expensive tastes. I'd rather just talk about the exploding dart mode as it reminds me of a similar custom game map in Halo: Reach where players would hurl themselves down tunnels in Warthogs as a couple players with hammers played explosive goalkeepers.
