GTA Online update pushes you out of a chopper in Drop Zone mode

A new Adversary Mode, dubbed Drop Zone, is now available for GTA Online players on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. You might think with all of its updates and additions that the GTA Online map would start to feel crowded - maybe that's why Drop Zone, as the name might imply, takes place high in the sky.

In Drop Zone, four teams of up to 16 players plummet from helicopters high above Los Santos, then fight to maintain control of the designated zone for two non-consecutive minutes. There are five Drop Zone maps: Pillbox Hill, Richman College, Elysian Island, the Mirror Park cul-de-sac, and the Sisyphus Theater.

If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, the new update also adds two new cars, the Karin Sultan and the Bravado Banshee. These roadsters begin relatively basic, but can be suped-up at Benny's garage to become the Karin Sultan RS and Bravado Banshee 900R - top-tier vehicles for all those friendly races you have with the local authorities.
