GTA Online Bikers update gets a release date and new Road Rash-y details

TODO alt text

GTA Online will get a severe case of road rash on Tuesday, October 4 when the Bikers update arrives. Rockstar Games confirmed the release date for its motorcycle-club themed expansion and released a series of new screenshots and details - including some motorcycle combat.

The Bikers update will add the ability to use melee weapons while riding any motorcycle, which should be familiar if you played the motorcycle races back in GTA 4: The Lost & Damned (or good old Road Rash). Hopefully this will make bikers more of a threat in free roam mode, and less of a soft target for griefers. Here are some more images teasing the update's new Motorcycle Club social structure and fresh bike selection.
