Grand Theft Auto V content updates out today

It might have taken longer than we wanted, but Rockstar has started rolling out extra content for Grand Theft Auto Online. This week: Deathmatch & Race Creators tool.

Access the same tools as Rockstar developers as you craft your own original Deathmatches and Races, each one able to be shared via the Rockstar Games Social Club.

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.

You’re given the ability to create – and customise – the following modes:

  • Deathmatch
  • Team Deathmatch
  • Race
  • GTA Race
  • Rally Race

Also in December, we will introduce possibly our favourite 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.

Want in on this? Make sure your Social Club account is linked to your Xbox Live Gamertag or PlayStation Network ID, and the update will roll out to you soon – for free!

…and if this doesn’t tickle your fancy, there’s some new Story Mode updates on the way for GTAV, set to continue the stories of Michael, Franklin and Trevor.
