It’s time to race on the land, sea and air in GTA Online. All in one race. The much-teased Transform Races are new stunt races with a twist- a change in vehicle type in certain checkpoints.
Rockstar has now detailed the first 15 races included in the update which feature some crazy back-and-forth vehicle changes. Here’s some of the more interesting race descriptions:
Separation – Start off strapped into the lovechild of a supercar and a space shuttle. Throw in a tightly-wound stunt plane and a herd of pocket-sized helicopters, and your multitasking better be up to scratch. Featuring the Rocket Voltic, the Mallard, Havok and Motorcycles.

Enjoying Gran Turismo Sport? The long-awaited racing game is finally out, but not without some quirks- the game requires an active internet connection to even do game saves.
If you have dabbled with the game’s Scapes Photo mode, you might notice that not all of the locations, like the streets in Melaka, are available. If you want access to all of the locations, it’s available as a free 9.3GB download.
All you need to do is find the Scapes Add-on on the PS Store, which is linked here.
This is an optional download, and given its size, it makes sense that is made as such.

Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President of EA, has explained that the Star Wars project is undergoing some big changes.
“Our Visceral studio has been developing an action-adventure title set in the Star Wars universe. In [...]
Head’s up. Now that Gran Turismo Sport is out it is now confirmed that many features of the game require an internet connection, and that includes saving the game. The persistent online connection means almost all the other modes except for Arcade mode are available should you lose a connection.
Always-online connection has always been met with bad reception, especially if the game does not justify its need. Series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has gone on the record stating 85% of the content for Gran Turismo Sport is offline-based, likely referring to the small portion of the Sport Mode is in comparison to the other modes on offer. However, with only Arcade mode being [...]
Civilization VI continues to be supported. The popular turn-based strategy game has announced two more civilizations you can play as, both hailing from Southeast Asia and have appeared before in previous Civ games.
The first one is returning from Civ IV: the Khmer Empire. Otherwise known as the Angkor Empire, the Khmer has huge advantages in religion growth, including a “religion bomb”- an ability to grab adjacent tiles after plopping a holy site- as well as big bonuses to population growth. Led by King Jayavarman VII, the Khmer also has the Domrey, a unique unit that is an elephant carrying a giant ballista.
As for the second civ, it’s Indonesia [...]
