Grand Theft Auto Online introduces its new Tiny Racers mode, and it’s wonderful

Yes, much better.

The newest Adversary mode for Grand Theft Auto Online isn’t about stealing things. It’s barely even about exploding cars. No, it’s about taking the game back to its roots with top-down stunt racing on an elevated track, complete with boost sections, power-ups, and all of the general ridiculousness you could expect. It’s the Tiny Racers mode, and it’s live now, without any need for DLC.

Players who drop too far behind the pack in this mode will get blown up, but for the most part it’s just about fun and mildly goofy top-down races across seven tracks. You’ll be getting increased rewards for playing it for the next week or so, which should serve as even more motivation to try it out. Check out the trailer just below for a glimpse at the action.

It’s very much a reference to Micro Machines; even the name of the game mode points to that.

I used to love games like this. I may buy GTA just for this experience.

The single player game is one of my top 5 games of all time.

I am almost tempted to download GTAO again as that looks to be just plain old fun. Still it is a pretty hefty download for me and my internets so we will have to see.

70+GB is the largest (by a fairly wide margin) of any game in my current library. I like to have so many games installed and ready to go given a whim, so I have to prioritise. I don’t think I’ve played GTA V in more than a year, so I might have to make a similar decision…even though my internet is fairly decent.
