GTA Online Freemode Events Update Coming
Rockstar has announced that next week GTA Online is getting an update that will add the new Freemode to the mix. Freemode Events in Grand Theft Auto Online are a new advancement in open world gameplay, giving 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.
Look out for King of the Castle – an every man for himself turf war where players will need to ascend and claim the designated ‘castle’ as their territory – and then fend off others. Players can 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.
Be sure to grab the update when it becomes available on September 15th
