Cooperative online heists are coming soon to the multiplayer mode
Grand Theft Auto 5's multiplayer mode will receive a variety of new add-ons in the near future, from the Content Creator that's out today, December 10, to the Capture the Flag mode this month, as well as online heists and even story DLC next year.Rockstar Games is working hard on new things for the online mode of Grand Theft Auto V, and the studio has just revealed a lot of details about all the new things coming to the multiplayer experience.
First up, there's the GTA Online Deathmatch & Race Creators Beta (aka the Content Creator), which will allow players to make their own races and encounters in the online world of GTA 5.
"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. Players can create and customize Jobs for the following modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Race, GTA Race and Rally Race," Rockstar revealed on the Newswire.
The studio will regularly review and highlight some of the most popular missions. The content creator beta will be available starting later today, December 10, so expect more details soon.
This month will also see the release of the Capture mode for GTA Online, which brings a special twist on the traditional Capture the Flag experience.
"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," the studio explained.
"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."
Rockstar isn't planning on stopping after these two add-ons, as the studio has also revealed that two big updates will appear in 2014, in the form of online heists and new story content for the single-player mode. Check out the details below.
- GTA Online Heists. We know many of you in the GTA Online community are super excited for the debut of co-operative Heists. Heists are currently in development and we are working very hard to get them as polished and as fun as they can be. Stay tuned for much more detail in the New Year.
- GTA V Story Mode Updates. For those ready to jump back into the story of Grand Theft Auto V, we have big plans for substantial additions in 2014 continuing Michael, Franklin and Trevor's action, mayhem and unexpected adventures in Southern San Andreas.
As of yet, it's unclear if these new add-ons will be available for free or for a fee.
