Rockstar Games have unleashed a trailer for more free content making its way to Los Santos on Grand Theft Auto V. These new events will give players access to a range of seamlessly integrated games and challenges in GTA Online’s Freemode.
“Taking full advantage of the latest generation of consoles and PC hardware, there are no menus, lobbies, or load times – just an open Freemode session filled with Friends, Crewmates, rivals, and randoms where spontaneous and chaotic new games and challenges will appear,” reads the press release on the Rockstar Games website. The new add-on will be available as of September 15th, just when you’re ready to settle into some new games! Please note that as far as we can tell, these will only be available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of GTA V.
Look out for King of the Castle – an every man for himself turf war where you’ll need to ascend and claim the designated ‘castle’ as your territory – and then fend off everyone else as they go all out to dethrone you. Form fragile alliances and work together in modes like Hunt the Beast, where one volunteer is temporarily transformed into a faster, stronger, beastly character who must escape relentless pursuers. Freemode Events also take the shape of insane stunt challenges, such as popping the longest wheelie, catching the most air in a land vehicle, or performing the most near misses in a vehicle without crashing.
Next week’s update also includes two brand new Adversary Modes. First, Hunting Pack: you’re part of a team tasked to deliver a priority vehicle rigged to explode if it drops below a minimum speed, while your opponents race, ram and batter to take it down. Or try Cross the Line, where heavily-armed squads face off across a neutral zone – with the goal of having all team members strategically penetrate their opponents territory to claim victory. The Freemode Events Update also brings the Rockstar Editor to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with new features (also being added for current PC users as well) such as an ambient audio and sound effects library, Snapmatic integration, Director Mode updates and more.
Rockstar Games have certainly done a lot to keep GTA Online active and updated, and fans who still visit Los Santos on a regular basis should be excited by the new features and game modes. I guess I’ll have to jump back in myself next week to check it all out. Time to round up the crew!
