It turns out Periphery guitarist Jake Bowen has officially made a contribution to Rockstar’s hit game Grand Theft Auto V. In particular, an online “job” he created known as “Rail Yard, Railed Out” has been handpicked by Rockstar to be included in GTA V’s online gaming. Check that shit out.
“Regular viewers of the Rockstar Games Twitch channel may remember this Job from our July 11th live stream, created by guitarist slash devoted GTA Online player, Jake Bowen from prog-metal band Periphery. Jake has added props sparingly to maintain the exposed, dangerous middle ground of the train yards, while teams spawn at either end. Stay close to your Crew and resist the urge to hammer the sprint button along the trainyards, as a stealthy approach will yield kills on unsuspecting foes crossing the tracks. Those with a steady aim might want to head to the rooftop, grab the Sniper Rifle and pick off anyone attempting to dash between cover spots.”
And while you’re at it, here’s some music! Don’t forget to keep your eyes open for Juggernaut, the highly anticipated new Periphery album.
