Â Since Grand Theft Auto Online first hit, crews have been a big olâ€™ helping of the whole multiplayer experience. This was how friends playing together found each other, co-operated, completed missions and raced together, all of that good stuff. Â
There wasnâ€™t all that much to the crew system, really. Just a custom crew insignia that was displayed on membersâ€™ cars, but it did the job. But hell, GTA V has had updates out the wazzoo for some time now. Itâ€™s a much more fully-featured title than it used to be (those freaking heists are finally here!), and crews are like, so 2013. Hereâ€™s the rocket up the ass that the system needed: Biker gangs.
Fans have been bitching for this to make an appearance for quite a while, and now weâ€™ve got a release date: October 4. The Bikers update, Game Spot reports, will bring â€˜underground motorcycle clubs to the forefront of the Los Santos and Blaine County criminal underworld,â€™ which sounds like an all-round good time to me.
As for the specifics, this content will allow you to form your own spangly new Hellâ€™s Angels with up to eight other players. Group members have different positions, and must impress the gangâ€™s president to be promoted up the ranks. Thereâ€™s also, weâ€™re told, an exclusive biker mechanic, but nothingâ€™s been revealed about this yet.
Aside from that, the DLC will add new game modes, new weapons and vehicles, and more customisation options for our characters, as is par for the GTA Online update course. Look out for the content next week.
