I’ve been hoping Rockstar will add more singleplayer stuff to Grand Theft Auto V [official site] rather than focusing on its multiplayer, but I can hardly be upset by them turning Los Santos into some sort of Hot Wheels-y, TrackMania-ish raceground. Grand Theft Auto Online’s Cunning Stunts update (ooh those scamps!) will bring aerial raceways with loops, pipes, and rings of fire, not to mention new vehicles to race round them. It’ll launch next week. For now, look at this wackiness:
I’m in favour of that.
As you can see, aerial roads with forks, jumps, and all sort of stunty bits will wind over and through the city and around the world. Also: giant bowling pins and bowls are around the place. These are good things. New cars and bikes are coming for the new racing, and folks will get to wear new racing clothing.
Cunning Stunts will launch next Tuesday, July 12th. Hang on… ‘Cunning Stunts’ is an anagram of ‘Cnut Stings Nun’! Rockstar are a rowdy bunch all right! Always subverting The Establishment and sticking it to The Man, that lot. Even medieval kings and friendly nuns aren’t safe from their satirical sideways take on the world.
