Rockstar games once again drops downloadable content (DLC) for their fans and hints at what they are cooking up for GTA V in 2014. GTA Online has a strong following and a lot of dedication coming from its developers. This update brings in some new opportunities for GTA Online but really acts as a stepping stone for the future greatness that Rockstar is aiming for.
The new update is said to release today for free. The update carries a beta for the Race Creator and Deathmatch modes which means that gamers will be given the opportunity to make their own games that can be shared and played by many. Any jobs that are created can be published with the help of the Rockstar Games Social Club so that other gamers around the globe can play them.
GTA V and GTA Online are sandbox games with so much to do it is to be expected that gamers will have their own ideas for fun jobs and games. The jobs that can be customized by players include Race, Rally Race, GTA Race, Deathmatch, and Team Deathmatch. Rockstar is expecting a lot of user-created games, so to help with facilitating them, Rockstar will recognize the very best jobs. Such jobs will be labeled as “Rockstar Verified Jobs.” Gamers that wish to share their creations need to have their PlayStation Network ID or Gamertag linked up the the Social Club which can be found at the bottom of the article. This update will bring these modes to gamers but is still considered to be in beta form.
Rockstar has hinted at future planned content including a new mode that adds a twist on the standard, Capture the Flag. They claim full details will emerge next week but for now they have said that the mode will have “Up to four squads battle to steal contraband, trucks, buses or whatever from opponents’ bases using high-speed vehicles, explosive weaponry and cunning teamwork.” Their version of Capture the Flag will be broken into four different modes which are “Raid” “GTA” “Hold” and “Contend.” According to some of the sound files found within the last update it seems Rockstar is also intending to give players the ability to race for pink slips, update the camera system, possibly visit a casino.
Rockstar certainly has their hands full. They are still asking gamers to help them out by emailing them with bugs or suggestion when it comes to the new beta job creation. That isn’t all they’ve been talking about though; GTA V will be receiving Story Mode Updates sometime in 2014. “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.”
GTA V continues to sell and has recently won the Spike Video Game (VGX) award for game of the year. Rockstar has big plans for the future of GTA V and GTA Online. If you want a sandbox game that lets you make your own game modes and jobs that you can share online Rockstar is inching closer and closer to that.
