Much like an undead vampire or zombie from a certain post-apocalyptic TV show (that should have been canceled three seasons ago), GTA Online is the game that simply refuses to die.
And while it seems like this iteration of GTA is destined to live on forever, Rockstar is giving us good reason to still love it. In light of the witching season descending upon us, GTA is bringing back not just one, but several of its scariest and most popular modes to keep us spooked. Here is all we know, from a recent update via Rockstar:
Something strange is afoot across Los Santos with reports of UFO sightings, terrifying Slasher-types, and phantom vehicles following people around. In the spirit of this spooky season, GTA Online’s Halloween Modes; Come Out to Play, Condemned, and Slasher, are back and paying out double GTA$ and RP this week.
Also, this Friday officially marks the 20th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III’s original release. To celebrate, playing GTA Online this week will earn players the GTAIII Baseball Bat Tee.
