GTA Online Capture Update Now Available

Posted on December 17 2013, 5:41pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Fight for exclusive import rights at Los Santos International in one of the new Capture mode Jobs in Grand Theft Auto Online.

Capture - the newest addition to the collection of team-based modes in Grand Theft Auto Online, is now available as part of the latest free automatic update on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. With 20 new Jobs across four unique modes, this GTA twist on classic capture the flag style confrontations brings a whole new level of adversarial action to the world of Los Santos and Blaine County. Strategy plays a huge role as you run decoys, set traps and place obstacles to ensure your enemies don’t get close to your goods. These new Jobs are accessible in Freemode and spread across the four different modes described below. Read on for more details and previews of a few of our faves:
In Raid, you'll have to fight your way into your opponents' base and steal a package, then deliver it back to your base to score points. Reach the target score, or deliver more packages than your opponents do in the allotted time to win the match. 
Legal highs and bad t-shirts aren't the only things being pushed on Vespucci Beach. Four factions raid each other's stashes for control of the area's 'tourist trade'. Take product back to your spot and it's yours.
Like any military operation, when things kick off at Fort Zancudo Air Base, they escalate pretty quickly. Teams stockpiling weapons to sell on the black market raid each other's bases at either end of the facility. If they get the goods back, they're banked. Nothing's off limits to be used here, including the fighter jets.
When playing Hold, teams must collect and store as many packages as possible in their base. Packages can either be found on the map, or stolen from the opposing team’s bases. Reach the target score, or hold the most packages when the time runs out, to win.
"Block Party"
Gang violence escalates in Chamberlain Hills, as block fights block at close quarters. Four factions with two packages each try to raid each other and protect their own stuff. If they get someone else's product back to their turf, they'll have to protect it.

Compete to get buses back to your base in 'All Abhorred'.

As the ubiquitous acronym might suggest, GTA mode tasks players with stealing target vehicles located all around the map, before bringing them back to their respective bases. Each team must fight to steal more vehicles in the allotted time than their opponents.
"My Maibatsu"
Four East Los car thief outfits compete to get hold of a shipment of Sanchez dirt bikes, and store them back at their bases, while preventing the other teams from doing the same. First place to look would be the Maibatsu Factory.
"Field of Screams"
A tractor shortage in Grapeseed leads to farmyard chaos. It's harvest time, and two rival gangs compete to bring a Fieldmaster tractor back to their bases. Farming is a deadly serious business in Blaine County.
In Contend, there's only one package, situated in the middle of the map. Teams must fight to bring this package back to their respective bases, and once the package is captured it respawns in the middle of the map and is up for grabs again.
"Salty Snatch"
Dog walkers and surfing talent agents look out - two import operations at either end of Chumash Beach are fighting over a shipment that's landed on the pier. Any product they can get to their spot in the sand is theirs to keep.

The contested package at the heart of a firefight.

Capture is available now as part of an automatic update for GTA Online, which also includes a host of fixes and dynamic tuning updates. For details on those please check out the Rockstar Support page.

        how about you can add members like those in deathmatches when you test your own creations? i would really like to test my captures without being invincible, and having those gang members with me so i can fully TEST it.

          I was really hoping that one of the capture modes would have been a, "King of The Hill" game type. Would have been great for a demo derby.

                  I think in the next update players should be able to raise the vehicles suspension, considering they are already able to lower them, I think being able to raise them as well would make a good experience for players.

                    Want to play capture, especially in free-aim mode. Add BrushedToast on Xbox LIVE.

                    Rockstar, how about a capture mode event weekend...?

                      This was an update/dlc. I believe in the next update besides adding anything Rockstar Games is already adding; new stylish clothing, hairstyles, tattoos and vehicles should be added. Especially weapons and hairstyles/clothing/tattoos. As well I would very much like the idea of gauged ear lobes for male and female characters alike. All new trending real life style items should be added. Anyone with me?

                        IF i could have my way with the grand theft auto creatamode, you guys would have some of the greatest levels to play. some ideas~noclipping with player barriers, and maybe a radius command to which you could create a barrier around your field to keep players inside and in the action. id also like to be able to make suspended ground such as bridges, and skywalks. id like a barrier to be able to be placed anywhere, raisable, lower-able, and nonclipable to the environment. like a high rise brick wall that could have light cracking at the bottom terrain where it sets so it doesn't look out of place. the ability to place things in midair would be great, if you dont understand what i mean, im looking for something like the bridge kits in worms 3d. a great deal of items needs to be added to the mode as well. if you want to see my works, join Lemon Demon (6666) i am red9republic. i have created well over 20 arenas myself all with a 75-100% rating. we have everything from skyfights in teh tallest of towers to nukemtown. we will not disappoint.
