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.

                  I Like What You've Done With The game. It's Remarkable What GTA has come to, It's Different To Actualy Play it online Then Just Run around on Storymode. There Has been 1 Thing Though That Absoulutely Baffeled me, I Wish You Guy's Would Make it So We can own more Properties instead of just 1. its Ridiculous Because What if i want to own 20+ Cars, i cant store them all in my 10 car garage, we should be able to atleast own a garage+ Appartment/Garage.

                                          If you are in pause mode.. u should be untouchable.. nobody should be able to do anything to you at all.. because u are defenseless. Instead of just dropping the dope off to Gerald.. maybe we should be given the option to sell it too. You guys should always make the prices of things alil bit more realistic.. maybe a few arms dealers can pop up here and there.. not too often tho.. the haircuts and tattoos need to be abit more accurate.. vehicle customization should have more options for crew emblems. If someone gives you guns.. u should be able to buy more ammunition from stores.. home customizations should be an option.. the ability to own more than just one home or garage should be eliminated.. I would like to someday own a garage and a home and maybe even a business.. Deals with crooked cops could also be an option.. judges and jail time.. the ability to work out and eat.. Install a lot of the ideas of all the GTA games online. Paint your car to get rid of wanted levels..

                                            @Zae_Kolyon The pause mode idea is stupid. People would abuse it while they're in a gun fight, for instance...if they're just about to die..they can just access pause mode and have no harm done to them.
