Multiplayer modes aplenty in new GTA

The official Vice City Strories website has been updated with tons of new info about the game's ambitious multiplayer. We stole the details, and made like a bandit. Here are our spoils:
  • Empire Takedown
    Your team will try to obtain a cache of explosives hidden in the middle of the map. Once you discover the bomb, your team will try to destroy your opponent's team's base. They will, obviously, be trying to do the same to you.
    The VIP is protected by bodyguards and must grab five briefcases scattered throughout the city. Play as the VIP, or try to kill him before he succeeds.
  • Might of the Hunter
    It's a race to get to the helicopter. Once a player commands the mechanized the terror, it's his duty to try and mow down as many opponents as possible. Everyone will try to blow the copter up, or snipe the pilot.
  • Tanks for the Memories
    It's similar to Might of the Hunter, only with a tank. The player driving the tank must try to reach the target time. All other players can damage the tank, and whoever deals the most damage to the vehicle gets to drive it next.
  • Vice City Survivor
    This is the classic deathmatch mode, available in single and team modes.
  • Protection Racket
    Destroy your opponents' limosines, while protecting your own.
  • Taken for a Ride
    Steal your opponents' car, and drive back to your own base. It's like Capture the Flag: whoever holds possession of both cars wins.
  • The Hitlist
    If you're the marked man, everyone's out to get you. Try to survive as long as you can. Whoever survives the longest as the marked man wins.
  • Street Rage
    The ultimate race, spanning air, land and sea.
  • Grand Theft Auto
    The titular multiplayer game. Players must steal certain cars and deliver them to shipping crates. Players that take the most cars, in the best condition, win.
Whoa... that was a lot of multiplayer. I loved Liberty City Stories' multiplayer modes, and it looks like Vice City Stories will up the ante quite considerably, featuring 4 more modes than the previous handheld game. The more you hear about the game, the more you want it, huh? Don't fret, though: it comes out in just a few more days.

[Thanks, ZENegade!]
