"GTA 5 Online" gets new Power Play update.Twitter/RockstarGames

Rockstar has released a new update for its popular video game "GTA 5 Online." Called Power Play, it promises to bring power ups to the game. Power Play update will be available for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of "GTA 5 Online."

Power Play will add power-ups to the game, which will change urban warfare rules by bringing special abilities. It noted in its Newswire post that players need to choose these power-ups wisely as they have a time limit on them.

The post notes six such power-ups, namely:

  • Beasted: Transform into the Beast and use special powers like invisibility, super jump, and super strength.
  • Zoned: Slow down time for all players, giving snipers a tactical advantage over exposed enemies.
  • Doped: Dull your enemy's senses with a trippy green haze; they'll never see that flank coming.
  • Raging: Unleash a rampage with your entire team by inflicting increased damage while taking reduced damage.
  • Flipped: Scramble your opponents by picking up Flipped, temporarily inverting all enemy camera controls and mixing team chat to truly get in their heads.
  • Dark: Take your team off the grid for well-timed sneak attacks.

It also explained that each player will be able to use the power-up only once but players can also get together with other teammates as part of strategy. Players will also be able to trigger these power-ups to numb enemy advantages.

Here are the three Power Play Jobs for "GTA 5 Online" players:
