Rockstar have revealed a new update for their hugely popular GTA Online that will see players racing around in a new top down game mode. This new game mode, appropriately called Tiny Racers is a nod to the original GTA as well as classic retro racing titles such as Micro Machines and Super Cars. The update is due to arrive on the 25th April, in the meantime watch the new trailer below.
Veteran gamers and those with an interest in retro may remember that GTA wasn’t always the nice and shiny third person game it is today. Back in the 1990’s GTA was a top down game and gave players a birds eye view of the action….and chaos. GTA, GTA2 and the GTA London mission packs were all top down games and the new Tiny Racers game mode will be returning gamers to this angle.
Tiny Racers looks to be a retro take on the game’s existing stunt races and will see players race around the tracks collecting power ups for a selection of nifty gadgets and bonuses that will either help players to survive or knock their opponents out.
The Tiny Racers update will be available to download on the 25th April.
