Switch between the interconnected lives of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as they embark on a series of heists across Los Santos and Blaine County in the biggest, deepest and richest open world experience yet, with game world enhancements that include new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.
The new generation upgrades also extend to Grand Theft Auto Online, an ever-evolving Grand Theft Auto universe. Rise through the criminal ranks by banding together to complete Jobs for cash, purchase properties, vehicles and character upgrades, compete in traditional competitive modes, or create your own content to play and share with the Grand Theft Auto community.
Transform Races is now available for free download in the dynamic world of GTA Online.
The next evolution of Stunt Racing in GTA Online, Transform Races enable players to instantly morph between land, sea and air vehicles mid-race, creating radical new track designs and race types. Switch between a wide array of vehicles across various classes – from nimble planes like the Besra and Molotok to speedy Super cars like the Vagner and Zentorno, and even versatile Special Vehicles like the Ruiner 2000 and Rocket Voltic. Courses include 15 new Rockstar Created Races, with more to be added later this fall, as well as the ability to concoct your own brand of madness with the Race Creator.
Rockstar Created Races
- Gauntlet II – There’s the surgically precise fighter pilot, and there’s the maniac with his foot on the floor of a Phantom Wedge. You’ll need to be both here. Featuring the Molotok, Motorcycles, the Phantom Wedge and the Oppressor.
- Get Wrecked – Get creative above the Los Santos Docklands on this destructive lap Transform Race. Featuring the Seashark, Shotaro, Super cars, the Mallard, and Havok.
- Home Run – You haven’t thrown a real San Andreas no-hitter until you’ve taken five vehicles through the land, sea and airspace of Blaine County. Featuring Super cars, the Vortex, Mallard, Seashark and Havok.
- Junk Yard – When the apocalypse finally gets underway in San Andreas, and the world lies in ruins, you can bet there will be some interesting racing opportunities in amongst the wreckage. Get practicing for the big day. Featuring Motorcycles, the Seashark and Mallard.
- McKenzie – If you want all the highs and lows of Blaine County with none of the itches and nosebleeds, this point to point Transform Race that starts on Motorcycles is for you. Also featuring the Besra, Blazer Aqua, Zentorno and Trophy Truck.
- Mixed-Up – Watch as the docklands, airport, business district and Legion Square all bleed into a single migraine-inducing blur in this Lap Transform Race. Featuring Super cars, the Besra, Ramp Buggy and Rocket Voltic.
- Neon Mountain – Ever wondered what it would be like to drop a few tabs and race through the title sequence of some vintage 80s sci-fi? Featuring Motorcycles, the Besra and Seashark.
- Plummet III – Make short work of the stratosphere in a really expensive sports car – with a twist or four. Featuring Sports cars, the Besra, Blazer Aqua, Havok and Akuma.
- Separation – Start off strapped into the lovechild of a supercar and a space shuttle. Throw in a tightly-wound stunt plane and a herd of pocket-sized helicopters, and your multitasking better be up to scratch. Featuring the Rocket Voltic, the Mallard, Havok and Motorcycles.
- Slalom – Whether you’re weaving through obstacles on two wheels, four wheels or two wings, the fundamental skills are the same: balance, precision, and dodging the flaming wrecks of your former competitors. Featuring Motorcycles, the Mallard and XA-21.
- Slam Dunk – Line your shot up perfectly, let the pressure slide right off you, and hit nothing but net. Then watch the guy behind you screw it up by a few feet and see his flying muscle car explode on the rim. Featuring Motorcycles, the Ruiner 2000, Besra, Blazer, Hauler and Whippet.
- Split Personality – You’ve only got a few seconds of hurtling down Mount Chiliad on a BMX to make that age-old decision. Left or right? With the pack or on your own? Jet-powered super car or flying motorbike? Featuring BMXes, the FMJ, Rocket Voltic, Besra, Oppressor and Parachutes.
- The Dragon – What could be more appropriate for a diverse and cosmopolitan city like Los Santos than a race track in honor of the Chinese year of the Giant-Dragon-with-a-Fighter-Jet-in-its-Mouth? Featuring Compacts, the Faggio Sport, Molotok and Vagner.
- Vinewood Thrills – Cruise under the Vinewood sign and ride an antique sailboat off the coast – inside a five minute lap with an executive chopper and a supercar joining the dots. Featuring Motorcycles, the Swift, Marquis, Seabreeze and Vagner.
- Warped – You’re in a freefalling supercar above the business district. You blink, and you’re piloting a jet fighter. Blink again, and you’re not quite sure if this is a rocket-powered Super or a flimsy ultralight. Featuring Super cars, the Molotok, Rocket Voltic, Ultralight and parachutes.
