The GTA Online Freemode Events Update Coming Next Week September 15th: Watch the New Trailer

Posted on September 10 2015, 10:59am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Freemode Events in Grand Theft Auto Online are a new advancement in open world gameplay, giving players access to a range of seamlessly integrated games and challenges in GTA Online’s Freemode. Taking full advantage of the latest generation of consoles and PC hardware, there are no menus, lobbies, or load times – just an open Freemode session filled with Friends, Crewmates, rivals, and randoms where spontaneous and chaotic new games and challenges will appear.

One of these events can kick off at any given moment while in Freemode, and you can customize your session to decide exactly which ones will happen – so you can play as much or as little of this new content as you like. With countless variations on each Freemode Event, there are tons of unique new experiences, each offering new opportunities for reaping GTA$ and RP in GTA Online. 

Feeling locked and stocked? Look out for King of the Castle – an every man for himself turf war where you’ll need to ascend and claim the designated ‘castle’ as your territory – and then fend off everyone else as they go all out to dethrone you. Form fragile alliances and work together in modes like Hunt the Beast, where one volunteer is temporarily transformed into a faster, stronger, beastly character who must escape relentless pursuers. Freemode Events also take the shape of insane stunt challenges, such as popping the longest wheelie, catching the most air in a land vehicle, or performing the most near misses in a vehicle without crashing.
 
Also included with next week's update are two brand new Adversary Modes. First, Hunting Pack: you’re part of a team tasked to deliver a priority vehicle rigged to explode if it drops below a minimum speed, while your opponents race, ram and batter to take it down. Or try Cross the Line, where heavily-armed squads face off across a neutral zone – with the goal of having all team members strategically penetrate their opponents territory to claim victory. The Freemode Events Update also brings the Rockstar Editor to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with new features (also being added for current PC users as well) such as an ambient audio and sound effects library, Snapmatic integration, Director Mode updates and more.

              hey rockstar if you guys are running out of memory space for old gen consoles why dont you put time and effort into deleting some of that memory space that already been taken up there are a lot of thing in gta online that people dont interact/use, so why not delete them. look there are alot of people who cant afford xbox 1s, all this is doing is making old gen players sad, gta 5 grew up on the old gen consoles we deserve more. thnx

                I believe they have given up on ps3 because Rockstar is running out of money from September 2013 1B the first weekend of sales, so they do not have enough money to keep the coders happy. Please get hungry coders and people who are not complacent with just doing a job. Just an FYI Rockstar. Everyone who still owns a ps3 will buy GTA6. DO YOUR JOB! It's what we pay you for.

                  Screw you Rockstar! I made my parents pay 60 dollars for this game so you could s**t on me! I paid for content, DLC, missions, cars, money, heists. Instead, I get a steaming dump on my 360 drive. Just release f**king DLC for the true fans! Not some phony punks who just got an Xbox! We've been loyal for years! Please!

                        Hey Rockstar...how about using that jail for something other than looks...how about a jail break system....you get caught or killed by cops, you end up in JAIL. THE ONLY WAY TO GET OUT IS BY PAYING SOMEONE TO BREAK YOU OUT..AND IF YOUR PLAYING WITH A CREW, YOU GET CREW XP..Also, why cant I lend someone money?? I should be able to hold debt over someone and either hunt them down for it and they should drop a percentage of what they owe if found...think of it as a EXPANDED BOUNTY SYSTEM..THANKS AND KEEP OT UP!!

                              @Dathan0212 Most mobile devices have 16-32 GB of storage. GTA V is about 60 GB. And mobile devices are far too weak to run GTA V. Not possible. I don't even think it's possible to bring GTA IV to mobile because that also takes up a lot of storage
