Grand Theft Auto V Single Player DLC Coming in 2014, GTA Online Deathmatch & Race Creators Beta Out This Week
Looking at how successful Grand Theft Auto V has been in just a few months, more single player content seemed like a foregone conclusion, and Rockstar Games has confirmed it today. In 2014, Rockstar has said that they have “big plans for substantial additions” to the story mode of GTA V, which will continue Michael, Franklin and Trevor’s “action, mayhem and unexpected adventures in Southern San Andreas.”
Before we get to that single player content, the Grand Theft Auto Online Deathmatch and Race Creators Beta is expected to go live as early as tomorrow for free:
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’ll be able to create and customize jobs in the Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Race, GTA Race, and Rally Race modes.
We’re planning on regularly reviewing some of the best community-created content to recognize and distinguish them as Rockstar Verified Jobs, shared out to the entire GTA Online community. The Deathmatch and Race Creators will come to you via a free update, and you’ll need to have a Social Club account that is linked to your Xbox Live Gamertag or PlayStation Network ID to use them. The Creators are in Beta so please help us iron out any flaws and bugs via the GTA Online email address.
As well, a twist on capture the flag will be added to GTA Online later this month in the form of Capture:
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’.
Finally, Heists are coming to GTA Online in 2014 and we can expect details next year.
