GTA Online Update: Free Deathmatch & Race Creators this Week, Capture Mode and More on the Way

Posted on December 9 2013, 1:06pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

With this week’s Race Creator tool, Craft your most challenging and intense GTA Online Races – in the streets, skies and waterways of Los Santos & Blaine County. Then share with the community to see who can best your bespoke Race.

Get ready for lots of new content updates for Grand Theft Auto Online, beginning with the launch of the free Deathmatch and Race Creators tool coming this week. Here's a look at what’s on the way in the weeks ahead...

Deathmatch & Race Creators Beta
This week, we will give you the first chance to build your own content in GTA Online (and play content others have made) with the release of the Deathmatch & Race Creators Beta. With access to some of the same tools as our own game design and development team, you can craft your own custom blood-soaked gunfights, high-octane street races, screaming jet dogfights and more. You’ll also be able to publish your original Deathmatches and Races via the Rockstar Games Social Club for the whole community to discover, download, play, rate and share. Players can create and customize Jobs for the following modes: 
  • Deathmatch 
  • Team Deathmatch
  • Race
  • GTA Race
  • Rally Race

Lift the goods from your rivals, then make a clean break for your home base in the all new free Capture mode and Jobs update coming this month to GTA Online.

We’re planning on regularly reviewing some of the best community-created content to recognize and distinguish them as Rockstar Verified Jobs, shared out to the entire GTA Online community. The Deathmatch and Race Creators will come to you via a free update, and you’ll need to have a Social Club account that is linked to your Xbox Live Gamertag or PlayStation Network ID to use them. The Creators are in Beta so please help us iron out any flaws and bugs via the GTA Online email address.
We expect the Creators Beta to become available as soon as tomorrow, December 10th. Look for an official release announcement here at the Newswire. 

The hunter and the hunted – the entire open world is your battleground as you war against enemy teams for coveted contraband in Capture mode.

Also in December, we will introduce possibly our favorite competitive team mode, Capture. A proper GTA twist on classic capture the flag, Capture mode brings territory infiltration and a new form of team-versus-team treachery into GTA Online. Up to four squads battle to steal contraband, trucks, buses or whatever from opponents' bases using high-speed vehicles, explosive weaponry and cunning teamwork. Craft, cooperation and team tactics are key. The free Capture update will bring a host of new jobs to GTA Online, accessible via the open world and also directly through your phone.  Capture is broken down into four variations - ‘Raid’, ‘Contend’, ‘Hold’ and ‘GTA’ – we will give you full details on each of these next week.
Coming in 2014
Expect big things in both Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V next year including:
GTA Online Heists. We know many of you in the GTA Online community are super excited for the debut of co-operative Heists. Heists are currently in development and we are working very hard to get them as polished and as fun as they can be. Stay tuned for much more detail in the New Year.
GTAV Story Mode Updates. For those ready to jump back into the story of Grand Theft Auto V, we have big plans for substantial additions in 2014 continuing Michael, Franklin and Trevor's action, mayhem and unexpected adventures in Southern San Andreas.
Plus much more still to be announced. 
Look for all the latest updates on Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online here at the Rockstar Newswire, and follow us on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.

        GTAV Story Mode Updates.... What happened to those?
        • HaegarrNCon June 11 2016, 4:10pmReplyFlag
          @SimplyWinter What happened is that they're making so much money from GTA Online that they need to throw out new items to buy so they can drive up shark card sales. Rockstar has no interest in making a single player DLC anymore.

                  Sooo, about those new adventures for Franklin, Trevor and Michael you were telling us seem to have gone quiet on us there Rockstar? Don’t be shy. Feel free to share more info. I’m sure you’ll feel a lot better if you just tell us whether it’s still happening or not ;)

                    I don't think we have this yet.
