GTA Online Freemode Events Update Now Available
GTA Online today gets a substantial update that adds the all new Freemode Events to the game. What are they you ask? Well Freemode Events will give you new missions and challenges to take part in, with no lobbies, no loading, only fun. Some of the new modes are listed below.
Hunt The Beast
Become the Beast – a stronger, faster (and hairier) version of your character - and flee relentless pursuers all over Los Santos and Blaine County.
Grab the briefcase and go! Jump into a car, bike, boat, motorcycle, P-996 Lazer or just run for the hills with the coveted contraband in hand. Be one of the three players who hold the briefcase the longest to score GTA$ and RP bonuses.
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.
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 other jackers and assailants in your session to be the one behind the driver’s seat when time runs out. Try and go for it solo to keep the entire GTA$ award for yourself, or shrewdly partner up with a gunner to ride with you for protection and split the earnings.
Whet your appetite for destruction with an all-you-can-eat buffet. Get strapped with a favorite 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. The player with the largest property damage bill who causes the most destruction will win.
But there is still more to this update, the Rockstar Editor has made its away to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with new features hitting PC as well, including a sound effects library, Snapmatic integration, Director Mode updates, and new fonts.
Today's 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.
