Grand Theft Auto Online’s latest update brings a new plane, the Bombushka, and a new multiplayer mode centered around the big gunship. Bombushka Run pits a single Bombushka against a team of smaller but agile Buzzard planes. Grand Theft Auto Online is the multiplayer component of Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Grand Theft Auto Online has been a big money-maker for Take-Two, thanks largely to constant updates like this one. Rockstar is always adding new vehicles and game modes, and it’s constant work on the live service has resulted in something that’s far more polished than what launched years ago. Playing the competitive modes can give you cash to help you buy cars, boats, and planes. But you can always use real money to boost your virtual wallet.

This economy is what has helped make Grand Theft Auto Online such a big success. Despite first releasing in 2013, Grand Theft Auto V was the No. 2 best-selling game in the U.S. for August. It has sold over 80 million copies total.

Rockstar’s next game, Red Dead Redemption 2, is coming out next year. It’ll feature its own open-world multiplayer mode that could become another big source of income for Take-Two.
