Rockstar Games have detailed just what exactly you’re getting with the Freemode Events update which arrived on September 15th for GTA Online. It’s safe to say that the future of GTA Online is in good hands, and that it’s looking very bright. These new additions will keep you entertained for hours and hours.
Hunt the Beast
Become the Beast – a stronger, faster version of your character, and flee from pursuers all over Los Santos and Blaine County.
Grab the briefcase and go! Jump into a car, bike, boat, motorcycle, jet fighter or just run for the hills with the coveted contraband in hand.
Compete with all your Freemode competitors in a mad dash across southern San Andreas. Who will be the first to race or fly through all the designated checkpoints for fame, fortune and reputation?
When you see the enormous dome appear over the Los Santos skyline, jump into the closest ride and find your way into it before the timer starts. Then, stay within the dome as it begins to move and shrink, smashing and bashing rivals out.
Whet your appetite for destruction with an all-you-can-eat buffet. Get strapped with a favourite piece of heavy artillery and let loose over a given time period with no wanted level in sight. Wanton destruction is rewarded with every bullet hole and blast.
Record the fastest time possible, with a new course to master every week that awards your GTA$ and RP for beating our target time or your own personal best – and a championship worthy haul if you can take down the World Record.
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.
The first player to enter a marked vehicle will become the Moving Target, tasked with safely delivering it to a designated location. While the marked vehicle will be durable, it’ll take serious elusiveness to survive others’ attempts to destroy you.
Kill List and Kill List Confirmed
Take control of some heavy artillery and duke it out with the mercenaries from Merryweather Security. Rack up GTA$ and RP for each kill.
Fight for possession of valuable contraband and see if you can make the drop first in this ruthless smuggler’s run.
Hold the Wheel
A Sanchez, a Golf Cart or another otherwise humble mode of transport is made into an indestructible marked vehicle. Take command of it and avoid all the jackers and assailants in your session to be the one in the driver’s seat when the time runs out.
Compete in 19 unique Challenges against friends and foes. See who can perform the longest jump, drive the farthest without crashing, fall the longest distance without dying, freefall the farthest before pulling their ‘chute – and many other ways to risk your neck for GTA$ and RP rewards.
Two new Adversary Modes
Cross the Line
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.
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.
Rockstar Editor now available
The Freemode Events Update includes the launch of the Rockstar Editor on the PS4 and Xbox One – with several new features that have been added to it for all platforms – including an ambient audio and sound effects library, Snapmatic integration, Director Mode updates, and new fonts.
The new update also brings new features to the GTA Online Creator, which includes the ability to properly stack and overlap Props, as well as the ability to save Prop templates that can be reused throughout custom Job creation. Now, clever Creators can make insane mega ramps, super loops, and brilliant parkour courses better than ever.
