Free GTA Online Deathmatch & Race Creators Update Now Available

Posted on December 11 2013, 12:00pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Create custom Deathmatches and Races with the latest free update to GTA Online.

The free Deathmatch & Race Creators Beta update for Grand Theft Auto Online is now available for PS3 and Xbox 360. Just download the latest automatic title update to gain access to some of the same tools our own game design and development teams use to craft custom skirmishes and races in any of the following modes:
  • Deathmatch 
  • Team Deathmatch
  • Race
  • GTA Race
  • Rally Race
To get started, access the Creator option from the Online tab of the pause menu. From here, you can start creating your own custom Deathmatches & Races or load and edit a previous creation. From there, you can check out a brief tutorial before you fully dive in (which we highly recommend).

In Deathmatch Creator, you can set Weapon and Armor locations in addition to Spawn Points.

You can create free-for-all or team variant modes; find your Deathmatch location anywhere in Los Santos or Blaine county, then drop the Trigger Location, where players will meet up to play your Deathmatch. Control the pace of your custom match with gameplay options Team Start Points and Spawn Points. With the operational foundation laid, dig into a full suite of Weapons and Vehicle customization; all weapon and vehicle classes are at your disposal to place around your Deathmatch. You can also drop Props like containers and ramps, to create hot spots for gunfights, more cover, or maybe you just want a few Sanchez dirt bikes to go airborne in the middle of a gunfight.

Customize the number of racers and the size of the starting grid.

Get started with a working knowledge of race creation by playing through the tutorial and building a land race. Once you've successfully published your first Land Race, both Sea and Air Races will be available for creation. In the Race Creator you can set the basics; Race Type (Race, GTA Race, Rally Race) and Route Type (Laps or Point to Point), number of players, starting grid size, vehicle class and more. Once you’ve set the basics, the full map becomes your racing paradise – take your land, air and sea races anywhere you want them to go. Add stunt jumps with custom cameras, create obstacles, and take your opponents on your dream (their hell) ride through Los Santos and Blaine County.

Add checkpoints to map out the route in created Races.

Once you've finished, you'll be prompted to test your Deathmatch or Race against computer controlled characters – completing a valid test before you publish your creation ensures your race is working perfectly, and will prevent you from publishing (or playing someone else’s) broken match. Published creations appear inside your GTA Online session and on the Social Club website (a linked Social Club account is required to use the Creator). We'll also be periodically reviewing the best community-created content to recognize and distinguish them as Rockstar Verified.

Capture a photo of your creation that will be seen in-game and on the Social Club website.

Along with the Deathmatch & Race Creators Beta, the latest automatic title update has a host of new fixes and updates for Grand Theft Auto V's Story Mode and GTA Online, including the flexibility to create weapon-locked deathmatches, giving players the ability to run inside their apartments and higher cash payouts when increasing the difficulty on Missions. For full details on the fixes and improvements in this latest title update, visit the Rockstar Support page for all the details.

                  Why are you limited to creating a race of no shorter than 0.68 miles long? I want to create a race on a short oval track, but am required to have a certain number of checkpoints to make it conform to the required minimum length. This is so frustrating. Are there plans to change this? Or is there a way of getting round it. I've tried doubleing up on laps but the other problem is the checkpoints have to be a certain distance apart too, there's not enough room on shorter tracks.

                            Quer um comando de amigos ? Aqueles que realmente te ajudam no que precisam ? Desbloquear itens ? Fazer missões, explorar o mapa, curtir, um comando sério que o que prevalece é a amizade.
