For many, it just wouldn't be Thanksgiving without football.

Rockstar Games has announced a new adversary mode for the online component of Grand Theft Auto V : Running Back, inspired by the aforementioned sport and coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

If you're wondering, it's basically football with vehicles. As the developer explained:

"Two teams (a total of 4-8 players) square off from opposing sides of a roadway. The elusive Runner, behind the wheel of a Benefactor Panto, must go the distance and get across the end zone line at the far end of the highway with the help of their offensive teammates in BF Biftas. Meanwhile, their defensive-minded opponents (also in Biftas) must ruthlessly block, crash and pummel their way to try to stop them."

Running Back can be played at Ranton Canyon Bridge, La Mesa Bridge and Zancudo Tunnel. It is now available to try, so give it a whirl. In May of this year, GTAV became the 4th-best selling game of all time with 52 million sold; releasing it on the new platforms obviously helped. Just don't forget that Running Back and all future GTAV updates will not be available for the last-gen versions of the game.
