And as previously announced, current GTA Online players on PS3 and Xbox 360 will be able to pick up where they left off, transferring their characters and progression seamlessly to their choice of PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC (Social Club membership required).Few objects are an obstacle for the intimidating Cheval Marshall.In addition, anyone who pre-orders the game will receive a bonus of GTA$1M ($500k for Story Mode and $500k for use in Grand Theft Auto Online). We’ve also received tons of great questions from excited fans about what's in store for the game. Below are some of the more frequent ones we've gotten that we're able to shed a little light on – and stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks. Remember, you can always send us your questions at mouthoff@rockstargames.com, or shoot us a tweet at @RockstarGames. If you've got feedback about what you'd like to see in GTA Online specifically, don't hesitate to drop our dev team a line at gtaonline@rockstargames.com.What about the exclusive in-game content I originally received for purchasing the PS3 or Xbox 360 Special Edition or Collectors Edition last year? Will I be able to access that content on PS4, Xbox One or PC?Yes, if you purchased the Special Edition or the Collector’s Edition last year, when you upgrade to one of the new systems, you will automatically have those items unlocked and accessible. Those in-game bonuses include the Stunt Plane Trials, Bonus Outfits and Tattoos, and the Pistol .50, Bullpup Shotgun and melee Hammer all for Story Mode use; as well as the Custom Classic GTA Parent Characters and the high-end Khamelion electric car for GTA Online. Furthermore, if you missed out on your chance to buy a CE or SE the last time around, we will also make all of that content available for all players on PS4, Xbox One and PC to earn and acquire with in-game cash (original SE and CE owners will not have to spend any in-game cash to obtain them, they will automatically be accessible upon upgrade).Can you only make the GTA Online character progress transfer once?If I transfer my GTA Online character to the new systems, will I still be able to play with him/her on my PS3 or Xbox 360?Yes, you will only be able to transfer your character once. After transferring your character to PS4, Xbox One or PC, you can continue playing with him/her on your PS3 or Xbox 360 but the progress you make while playing is not shared to the character you transferred to your new version.Will PC players also receive the exclusive upgrade content like the Dodo and Dukes?Yes indeed! The content detailed above will be available to returning players on all three new platforms.Will any of these updates being made for the new systems be also made available for the previous generation of consoles?The vastly enhanced graphics and many other gameplay updates on the new versions of Grand Theft Auto V are really only made possible by virtue of the powerful new hardware of the new consoles and PC. Some of the other updates such as the upgrade content detailed above are being designed exclusively as a reward for returning players so those will not be released on the previous versions; however do stay tuned for more updates to be made available for Grand Theft Auto Online across all platforms and we’ll have more information on that soon.Will my created Jobs transfer over to the new systems?Yes, any Jobs you’ve published in GTA Online using the Creator tool will transfer over so that you and others can continue playing them on the new platforms. Please be aware however that Leaderboards, Snapmatics, Playlists and bookmarks are unique to the console generation you made them on so those will not carry over. (GTAV photographers should get ready to take all-new high-res Snapmatics!)Will 30-person GTA Online sessions include competitive modes such as Races and Deathmatches?Yes, they will! GTA Online on the new systems will support 30 players not just in Free Roam but in competitive modes as well (unless of course the Job you’re playing has been designed to be set to a specifically lower player max). We look forward to seeing what unique matches the community can create for a vastly increased number of players.We know there’s many other questions players have about the new releases as well so please stay tuned for more information to come in the weeks ahead. Previously:Grand Theft Auto V Release Dates and Exclusive Content Details for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PCTue, 28 Oct 2014 09:59:44 -0400Crew Noticeboard: Legacy Crime Family, Academi PMC, Toys LS and Others Now Recruitinghttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52336/crew-noticeboard-legacy-crime-family-academi-pmc-toys-lshttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52336/crew-noticeboard-legacy-crime-family-academi-pmc-toys-lsThe Crew Noticeboard is our featured column of Crews actively seeking new members to join their ranks where we publish your recruitment pitches in your own words.This week's edition features a collection of killer crime families, rough and tumble UK vigilantes, powerful paramilitary security teams and Crews that fall somewhere in between. Definitely check out the latest Crew pitches on the board below to team up with some new compatriots or simply to see what you're up against. Crew Leader mr99zied and the enterprising members of the Apache Crime Family are looking to bring chaos and destruction to all those they come across and perhaps have a few laughs along the way. However, with a "come one, come all" mentality, acceptance and loyalty to the Crew seem to take top priority."A new family is born in Los Santos! Apache Crime Family is a legit power house Crew and it's one of the most feared Crews online. The only way you'll know that Apache is in your lobby is if you see massive chaos going on, so watch out!ACF Crew is made up of members from all corners and walks of life.

They count the Warri0rs of Mayhem and the Slayton Crime Family amongst their nefarious partners in crime."(LCF) is a Mafia but not an ordinary mafia. The reason why I say that is because when I built this Crew, I made the structure like a Cartel style Mafia.I founded this Crew on July 26th, 2014. We are still very active to this day and still growing...(LCF) has their own website, the link to it will be posted at the bottom of this message. We make YouTube videos of Assassinations, free roam wars, etc. Legacy Crime Family is a laid back, respectful and dominant Crew to be a part of."- God Father (LCF) / emptySilenceKill Official Website: http://legacycrimefamily.weebly.com/http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/legacy_crime_family Rok3dd and the motley paramilitary regime known as The Regulators956 are sweeping through Los Santos on the hunt for high profile security contracts from other Crews who can afford their offered services. Networking on both their own private site and well-known fan forums, the DOGS certainly appear to be working to make a name for themselves. "Our Crew does security details for other Crews and car meet ups, protecting those in them and squashing those who mess with us. We do our best to get our name out there through the use of GTA forums.Through the forums we have acquired many allies and jobs, just like the 8492nd Squadron shown on a previous Noticeboard. We are on their GTA forums page under their listed "Partnerships".We have also created our own website for our Crew, which shows our dedication to it.

The organization of the Crew itself focuses on the creative efforts of its members, fostering a spirit of fun and self-expression."Following a successful recruitment drive in the past few weeks, the search continues for more enthusiastic and co-operative members.

As we take a trip down memory lane (by way of Ganton), we've picked out 10 fun GTA Online Jobs published by nostalgic community members (5 each on PS3 and Xbox 360) using the Creator and shared them below. To play these, just click on the title link and select "Add to Game" to bookmark it for your Crew's next GTA Online session.Race Dam Rider by SyxTnynE (PS3)This well-balanced Race for 2-wheelers will take you from the Land Act Dam down to the northern outskirts of East Vinewood and back up through the Grand Senora Desert. Try a two lap option with Motorcycles then try switching it up with a single lap BMX for two great takes on this scenic route. Creator SyxTynE poses the challenge: "CJ beat the dam race, now can you?"Team Deathmatch Grove Sweet Grove by Captain_Fred01 (PS3)Grove Street itself has certainly been the focal point for many Deathmatch creators looking to represent the green and relive their glory days with The GSF. This particular take on bringing some mayhem to the block shows off a measured balance with an even spread on placement between conventional firearms and melee weapons. Captain Fred gives a familiar call to arms in the Job’s description: "Family's for life homie, you down?"Race A Home in the Hills by Rozza3 (PS3)Many will recall the great view from Madd Dogg's luxurious hillside mansion in Mulholland. This particular nod to that location will direct you through a sharp and winding circuit starting in Sandy Shores and along the jack knife turns of Baytree Canyon. Ultimately, you’ll arrive at an equally swanky residence in Galileo Park to bring home the win but be warned you'll need to navigate nimbly, so as not to smack directly into an unforgiving wall or unfortunate roadblock along the way.Race N.O.E. by ala-eddine97 (PS3)In the original San Andreas mission, Agent Mike Toreno tells Carl Johnson to "wake up and smell the coffee" and advises him to fly low under the radar, taking a "Nap of the Earth" style route to deliver a crucial package by nightfall. This equally demanding Air Race carves a large ark across Blaine County, starting near the Alamo Sea and concluding at Sandy Shores - and requires you to take on low-key altitudes beneath bridges and outcroppings to clear the checkmarks. Keep an eye out for rival flyers.Race Sweet and Kendl by GoochTheftAuto95 (PS3)Bike Race creator GoochTheftAuto95 describes this Job as, "A BMX Race from Hill Valley Cemetery to Grove Street and all the sights in-between. A homage to the San Andreas Mission with the same name." Playing through, you'll certainly start to feel some nostalgia for those early Los Santos missions but there are also some surprisingly massive drops mixed in along this course to keep you focused.Race Bloodring Bangers by Arms Dealer (Xbox 360)The Demolition Derby style Banger was a mainstay vehicle of the Bloodring Coliseum in Vice City that carried over to the primetime Blood Bowl in San Andreas. Our Creator in this instance has cleverly used inverted ramps inside the ULSA campus track and field stadium to trap "contestants" in an action-packed GTA Race. Great placement of Rockets, Speed Boosts and weapon pickups ratchet the carnage levels to a rambunctious roar.Team Deathmatch Gray Imports by JIIThe_JokerIIK (Xbox 360)According to the Creator of this 2-16 player Team Deathmatch based in the harbors of Elysian Island, you have been "sent over to the docks by CJ to disrupt a meeting between the Russians and the Ballers". Be sure to bring a large group and spread out your forces high and low, as every manner of weapon seems to have spilled out of the shipping crates on to the ground - immediately up for grabs to allies and enemies alike.Team Deathmatch Grove Street Brawlers by Pressure.Drop (Xbox 360)Being both a member of the well-known GTAPhotographers Crew and the Creator Core Club, Social Club member, Pressure.Drop appears to have a real knack for creative expression in GTA Online. In this mission, set in the heart of Davis, he takes it back to basics with an array of melee weapons to make things pretty unpleasant in Grove Street. Don't get it twisted though: there are also Molotov Cocktails and Tear Gas grenades to keep your enemies at bay or to press the advantage for your homies.Race Little Loop by JIIThe_JokerIIK (Xbox 360)The prolific #Throwback Job Creator JllThe JokerllK follows up with a solid motorbike Race named after the classic San Andreas circuit - with some great ramp placement. Setting the scene, the description reads: "Cesar Vialpando invites you to a sports bike race with ramps and obstacles, taking you from Downtown Vinewood to Los Santos airport, ending at CJ's old crib on Grove ST. Good luck."Race Wrong Side of the Tracks by GTAMANIAC99 (Xbox 360)In this fairly straight-forward GTA-style Race, local motorcycle enthusiasts willfully engage in a balls-to-the-wall, destructive tear down the LS train tracks running west to east from Cypress Flats, passing through Mirror Park and concluding in the Tataviam Mountains. You may luck out and tear ahead of the pack at some point but be warned: close-quarters exchanges in the numerous narrow tunnels you will encounter going towards the finish line could even the score at a moment's notice. If you've spotted or created an epic GTA Online Job themed around one of our games, a certain mission or even your favorite movie, be sure to tag it #throwback on Social Club and drop us a link either here in the comments or via Mouthoff, so we can check it out. Previously:GTA Online Creator Throwback Jobs: Red Dead Tribute SpecialGTA Online Creator Throwback Jobs Inspired by Classic GTA MissionsTue, 21 Oct 2014 11:44:28 -0400Fan Art: Snapmatic Surrealism, Bullworth GIFs, Throwback Art and Morehttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52331/fan-art-snapmatic-surrealism-bullworth-gifs-throwback-arthttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52331/fan-art-snapmatic-surrealism-bullworth-gifs-throwback-artOur latest collection of fan-created visual artistry covers a diverse variety of styles and influences, including dreamlike treatments of Snapmatic photos, one of our favorite pieces of San Andreas fan art from back in the day and a study of Michael and Trevor as imagined in their not-so-innocent youth.As always, should you come across any impressive GTA or Rockstar-related art or photos that you think other fans need to see, be sure to send them our way via Mouthoff and follow us at instagram.com/rockstargames for all our latest official pics.         SNSTR_SHDW of the GOLD GANG Crew has been sharing these surreal scenes on Twitter, captured via Snapmatic and then edited using imaging software.Epseelutely, fka Radiopappa, makes this a hat-trick of Fan Art post mentions on the Newswire, having been previously featured for illustrations of young Trevor, Michael and Amanda pre-concert and the amazing GTA x Bullworth crossover. Here, the motif of Michael and Trevor in their formative years is continued with these detailed character studies, described as "stuff from back when I was thinking about ideal North Yanktons..."   Julia Scott is another Newswire Fan Art post alumni, with her stylish GTAV GIFS featured here back in July. Here she has Bully's Jimmy and Gary superbly drawn and with backgrounds nicely summing up the sophomoric chaos one might expect during a term at Bullworth.   A pair of throwback pieces nodding to classic GTA games. On the left we have an oldie but goldie - one of our favorite pieces of San Andreas fan art created by Filipe Aguiar back in '08. This month being the 10th anniversary of CJ's romp across the West Coast, it seemed a good time to dig this out from the vaults. Meanwhile, on the right we have a more recent piece by deviantARTist Cilab, depicting Vice City Stories protagonist Vic Vance, looking a bit longer in the tooth than we remember him.   We featured Reuben Dangoor's study of Trevor a little while back. He has since followed up with this portrait of Michael (left), with narrowed eyes and a furrowed brow that show a man with the kinds of problems only cheap liquor and expensive therapy can soothe. On the right, just another day at the office for a blood-stained Trevor... stepping out of an inferno in this piece by Argentinean artist Franco Raviglione.    New Zealand designer Felix Tindall (shrimpy99 on deviantART) has produced a large gallery of movie and game inspired posters in what he describes as his own "broad styles of minimalism". Red Dead and L.A. Noire are the first entries in his "Rockstar collection" series, with Max Payne 3 and GTAV coming down the line. Looking forward to them, Felix!Following the slick custom PS4 console skin in our previous fan pics roundup, tcmfgames on Instagram shared the perfect accessory - this fan-made controller bearing the new Starlet art that accompanied the “A Picket Fence and a Dog Named Skip” trailer. We're not sure who the creator is, but they seem to be all set for November 18th. Norwich, England-based mural artist Gnasher sent over this custom GTAV mural via Twitter, featuring Franklin and Chop on guard to keep any would be slumber-spoilers at bay. Geoffrey Halleux is a cosplayer from Belgium and this photo, channeling Marston mid-Dead Eye, features a costume that's entirely hand-made. Also check out Geoffrey's gruesome shot of a (fake!) buck going under the knife. Bent pen tops and an ink-splattered table top show the work that has gone into this detailed L.A. Noire drawing by devinatARTist Ludicrous-Speed.  Previously:Trevor on Canvas, Damned Brotherhood Portraits, You Only Live Once Photo Journal & MoreA Lamar and Trevor Cross-Stitch Collaboration, Vintage Trio Portraiture, Trick Photography Snapmatics and More The GTAV Animated GIF Artwork of Julia Scott, Trevor Gets Patriotic & MoreMon, 20 Oct 2014 11:30:15 -0400Rockstar Official Livestreams this Week featuring GTAV Soundtrack's Flying Lotus, Thundercat & Morehttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52330/rockstar-official-livestreams-this-week-featuring-gtavhttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52330/rockstar-official-livestreams-this-week-featuring-gtavTune in this week at the Rockstar Twitch channel for a pair of very special GTA Online livestreams:Thursday Oct 16th     1:30PM Eastern*GTAV Soundtrack Edition featuring FLYING LOTUS and THUNDERCATWe're honored to welcome FLYLO FM's own Flying Lotus and Thundercat to the official livestream tomorrow afternoon live from Rockstar NYC while the guys are in town touring in support of the new album You're Dead!.

All this and more, straight ahead.MIND TRIPGTA V Online - WELCOME TO MY MIND by NexxuzHDThe past year has brought us lots of excellent timelapse videos, but here YouTuber NexxuzHD has kicked things up a notch with this dazzling presentation. Awesome video effects and seemingly painstakingly crafted shots showcase an ever-changing world literally morphing around one man as he travels through greater Los Santos. The vivid yet dreamy "Welcome To My Mind" is certainly one not to sleep on.Also Check Out:A World In Motion (GTA V Timelapse) by HnS Games HOT PURSUITGTA 5 Stunts - Incredible Police Chase! by MafiaStunting! / VaktikWe've definitely seen some impressive videos of players utilizing Franklin's special driving abilities to evade police during a 5 Star Wanted Level, such as clayman90's "5 Stars" Police Chase - but never before have we witnessed someone do it with such finesse and mastery on two wheels. With a decidedly high degree of difficulty, Franklin must dodge and weave to avoid being knocked off his motorcycle all throughout this chase. The definitive and utterly jaw-dropping moment occurs just past the three minute mark when our driver manages an over the shoulder sticky bomb toss at pursuing LSPD Helicopters while ramping directly into the sky. Remarkable skills on display here. Also Check Out:GTA 5 Worlds Scariest Police Chases Ep 1 by TheSLAPTrain1 NOSTALGIC NODSBranberry Shorts - Three Brothers in the Civil War by Sonny EvansSonny Evans, the creative and talented fan behind the Branberry Shorts videos series (which include music video & tv intro remakes, the unglamorous lives of skydive stunters and more) brings us this short film shot in GTA Online that tells the story of three brothers' tragic experiences during the Confederate conflict.Also Check Out:GTAV skydiving montage - The Bomb - A stunt montage by Sonny EvansBoardwalk Empire | GTA 5 Reenactment | Boardwalk Empire Intro by 8-BIT BASTARDKnown for creating sharp and spot-on GTA Online parodies of shows and films like The Sopranos and The Godfather, 8-BIT now brings the cool and calculating "Nucky" Thompson to life on the sunny shorelines of Vespucci Beach. Complete with bottles of Pißwasser washing up on the sand, the eye for detail here is great. Check it out for yourself and see how this shot-for-shot homage stacks up against the original intro here.GTA Online | "Best of 2014" Mashup Montage by El SerpeThose who've enjoyed previous efforts from video director and Aegis Legion leader El Serpe, should definitely take in this new mashup featuring a collection of utterly awesome moments masterfully set to a thumping music track that features "300 clips of the most awesome, original, extreme, and plain beautiful moments from the GTA Online community. This summer's 2014 Best of music video mashup montage will help you prepare your next Los Santos vacations." Certainly a great way to play us out of the summer season, El Serpe. MORE RECOMMENDED VIEWINGAlso don’t miss these fun vids that we recently spotted and shouted out on Twitter or simply took note of – make sure you’re following us there to see some great videos shared on the regular:GTA Online - Kill Bill Photo Project by GTA Series Videos: How far would you go to emulate your favorite classic action film and get the perfect Snapmatic shot of it?  GTA Series Video shows there's quite a bit of payoff in the final shot, if you're working with the right group of friends. John Marston // Maquillaje Cosplay Makeup FX by Keevanski: You may recall make-up maestro Keevanki's amazing work on an Undead Nightmare version of John Marston from our last round-up. Now, she applies a slightly different skillset and rather convincing gender-bending brush techniques to create this version of Marston proper. GTA 5: The Matrix Reloaded Remake (Highway Scene) by John Chapman: John previously got our attention with his GTA 5: Terminator 2: Judgment Day Remake. In this go-round he takes on the face-off scene between Morpheus and the translucent Twins from The Matrix Reloaded. Christine (GTA 5 Machinima) by ModernEntertainment: Horror movie buffs will fondly recall John Carpeneter's adaptation of writer Stephen King's jealous and murderously possessed 1958 Plymouth Fury. In this updated rendering we see the creepy car chillingly played by the Declasse Tornado. GTA 5 - BMX FREESTYLE 2 (GTA V BMX Stunts Montage) by RedKeyMon: It's been quite some time since RedKeyMon graced us with his exceptional BMX skills opting for high flying action in turbo-charged motorbikes and Super cars instead, as of late. We think this latest offering was well worth the wait.As always, if you've got an excellent GTA or Rockstar themed clip of your own that you think the world needs to see, feel free to drop it in the comments for the Social Club community to enjoy or send it our way to have a look at mouthoff@rockstargames.com, and we may feature it in a future round-up here at the Newswire. Previously:Original GTAV Trailer in Madrid, Undead Marston Make-Up Tutorial, Pet Shop Boys Tribute & MoreWed, 15 Oct 2014 11:00:53 -0400Rockstar Verified Update: 10 New Cloud Piercing Air Races, Including the #FlightSchool Creator Competition Selectionshttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52329/rockstar-verified-update-10-new-cloud-piercing-air-raceshttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52329/rockstar-verified-update-10-new-cloud-piercing-air-racesThe latest batch of Rockstar Verified GTA Online Jobs take us to the skies above Los Santos and Blaine County, with a squadron of ten Air Races, including our five official selections from the #FlightSchool Event Weekend Creator Competition. These five choices have earned their respective Creators each a cash infusion of GTA$1M plus the AVIATOR custom license plate for their ground-based endeavors. We’ve also selected five runners-up to receive the Rockstar Verified treatment, making them available to play across both PS3 and Xbox 360 (as well as in the upcoming new versions of Grand Theft Auto V launching for PS4 and Xbox One on November 18th and PC on January 27th).Read on below for descriptions of all these new Verified Jobs and make sure to click on each one's title to add a bookmark via Social Club for easy access during your next play-session. Keep an eye out for more Rockstar Verified Jobs coming soon, including our selections from the recent Last Team Standing Weekend Creator Competition.#FlightSchool SelectionsHelicopters follow the coastline of East Los Santos in Dedalus.Dedalus - created by jjjpelo"Easy," reads the one-word description for jjjpelo's long loop along the coastline, but in reality it's anything but. The Swift is the default choice of chopper, and its maneuverability and speed make it an excellent fit. If you're not too busy getting in the blades of your opponents, look out for great views across the city as you climb over the Land Act Dam.Heli Low Fly Zone - created by LoneWolfOfNorthThe introduction of San Andreas Flight School to GTA Online has arguably increased the skill of local pilots, while at the same time encouraged greater recklessness. This creation from LoneWolfOfNorth features some of the most difficult low flying sections we have seen, to the point where we wondered if it could even be classed as flying. We think that this will be a Race that many players will come back to again and again, especially to try and beat the three-minute Lap challenge laid down in the description. Jets look to avoid the rotating turbines of the windfarm as they race to industrial South Los Santos in Dusk.Dusk - created by GunterDaPenguinGunterDaPenguin has made the city the star of this Besra Race, a north to south tour at a time of day (hence the title) when the world beneath your wings has a stunning amber glow. Not that it's advised to spend too long sightseeing - challenging sections weaving through wind turbines and knifing between skyscrapers should keep your attention on the stick.Pylon Slalom - created by manfreygordonConventional logic would suggest that spinning helicopter blades and overhead power cables are rarely a good mix - but conororor has disregarded this completely and created a fun aerial slalom between pylons in the Besra. Quick reactions and close control over your plane's rudders (L1/LB and R1/RB buttons) are a must.An appropriately sponsored Mallard weaves through the aerial obstacle course of Sprunk Air Race #1.Sprunk Air Race #1 - created by kapnkyleThis Mallard Stunt Race is as extreme as the benzene-packed drink from which it takes its name. Loops and tight turns in the skies above Vespucci Beach make for an entertaining test for the most able pilots. Non-Contact is selected by default and we recommend keeping it that way, unless mid-air collisions are your idea of a day at the beach. Runners-UpAfter School - created by KakoQRThe title couldn't me more fitting in this Air Race for San Andreas Flight School graduates looking to take the Besra Training Jet for an off-curriculum cruise. The route is varied, with sections under bridges and over the crest of a mountain, and we suggest keeping the time set to morning so you can enjoy the sunrise around Raton Canyon.Helicopters take off from the peak of Mt Chiliad in Chopper Bombing.Chopper Bombing - created by passlakeThis helicopter Race feels like a change from the norm right out of the gate, with players starting at the peak of Mt. Chiliad and immediately going into what is accurately described as a "near-suicidal descent", followed by a “treetop-trimming run through Paleto Bay”.Chopper Killer - created by LiwethaAnother challenging race in the Swift helicopter, with players starting out at the docks and working their way through downtown, squeezing between buildings and climbing to pass over the Maze Bank Tower.SA Flight School: Racing - created by DemonicStalkerrThis Race is pitched as a chance to put everything you've learned at the San Andreas Flight School to the test, and this proclamation is backed up with a series of tight turns, low flying sections and tight squeezes along its short route. The varied verticality, with some checkpoints requiring you to climb steeply and others forcing you to dive down under bridges, made the Race stand out from the rest.The Flyby sees Jets roar past the quiet beach town of Chumash.The Flyby - created by Vance BurritoAnother great, high speed Jet Race with good variation. Highlights include dangerously low flying sections over the rooftops of Chumash beach houses and under bridges as you skim the water in Lago Zancudo, which are separated by a highly technical number of tight turns around the tower of the Fort Zancudo Military Base. Please note that in addition to occasionally changing Job names due to taste, copyright or other reasons - we also from time to time will make other small edits to players' Jobs before making them Rockstar Verified. This includes, but is not limited to modifying spawn points, improving checkpoints or increasing/decreasing the amount of weapon picks ups for a particular Job. Once Jobs are Rockstar Verified, they become available for play across both platforms, so whether you're on Xbox 360 or PS3, you'll have all these newly Verified creations available in your next Freemode session (and as mentioned above, you can bookmark them at the Social Club for easy access in your next session).Go ahead and post your Job below in the comments (only once, please don't spam) with a punchy explanation of why it's worth checking out. We're always looking for new player-created Jobs to add to the Rockstar Verified program and the best way to get noticed is to have a solid Race, Deathmatch, Capture or LTS that's been thoroughly tested by the community and refined into the most fun and fair experience it can be. PreviouslyClose-Quarters Confrontation, Pure Racing and Major Props10 New GTA Online Jobs Including the #IMNOTAHIPSTER SelectionsDrift Paradise, Hipster Rage and MoreTue, 14 Oct 2014 14:02:30 -0400
