GTA Online’s second weekly update since the release of the Cunning Stunts: Special Vehicle Circuit DLC has just been made available. Both new additions have been warmly received by gamers, but the Infernus Classic in particular has been widely anticipated ever since it was teased by Rockstar some time ago.
Taking one of the series’ most frequently featured vehicles and giving it a retro makeover instantly won the praise of fans. Car enthusiasts were particularly hyped for the Infernus Classic and it certainly lives up to the anticipation. The style of the vehicle, manufactured by the fictional Pegassi, is mainly based on Lamborghini design language, namely the 1990 Diablo. However, elements of the Cizeta V16T and hints of the Ferrari Testarossa can also be seen.
The ride falls into the sports classic class, unsurprisingly, and costs GTA $915,000. With recent prices in the game being at a significantly higher average, seeing a new car added with a price tag under a million is refreshing and welcome. The vehicle features some nice customization options, allowing players to upgrade and tailor the car’s looks to their preference.
In terms of performance, the Infernus Classic comes in at around the same place as the Stirling GT, which has been the best car in its class for a long time. While more or less evenly matched, it seems that in the hands of a skilled driver the Infernus Classic is just a tad nimbler. However, before you rush out to grab the car this instant, consider that the Turismo Classic will be released by Rockstar in the near future, and that it may be superior in terms of speed. Of course, if you’re in this for the looks alone, then go ahead and drop the cash, because this car truly is a beauty.
Alongside the new vehicle we’ve also received a new Adversary Mode called Resurrection to expand on the game’s already large library of PvP game modes. This mode, alongside another which likely will arrive next week, was teased some time ago as a “gallows humor take on dodgeball”. Players at the time speculated that the mode will amount to a slightly tweaked version of the old fashioned team deathmatch mode we all know and love where killing an opponent will resurrect an ally.
Lo and behold, the players were right. The new mode sees two teams with between 4 and 8 members take on one another in a deathmatch scenario. The goal is to kill enemy players, with the twist being that every kill you score will revive one of your downed team mates. The mode can be played across seven maps including the aircraft carrier, the windfarm and Elysian Island among others. While the mode on its own sounds pretty cool to begin with, Rockstar tossed in a bonus 2x RP and GTA promotion to get more people playing.
The Turismo Classic will be arriving next Tuesday, possibly alongside the other teased Adversary Mode, Top-Down. In the meantime, get comfy in your new sleek Infernus Classic and mow down enemies in Resurrection.
