Well, it’s Friday, and if you’ve been keeping up with GTA Online news, you know what that means! You can now create your own Capture Jobs and upload them for other people to play.
In fact, Rockstar has decided to extend the Double GTA$ and RP for Capture Jobs until April 20, so keep playing Capture Jobs to get twice the rewards.
Finally, to further celebrate the launch of the new Capture Job Creator, this weekend will see the #CaptureWeekend Awards. When you create a Capture Job that you think could win the contest, go to the Social Club, head to the GTA Online section, and edit the job in question to include the tag #CaptureWeekend. You have until 11:59 PM Eastern Time this Sunday. The winning jobs will become Rockstar Verified. There will be four winners, each of whom will receive 1,000,000 GTA$, an in-game CAPTURE license plate, and the chance to join Rockstar in a Twitch broadcast.
Check out the official announcement , and start creating those Capture Jobs.
If you’ve been looking forward to the upcoming features we reported last week, you’ll be pleased to know they’re starting to roll out now. First, title update 1.12 is now available.
With title update 1.12, you can call Lester to have the cops “turn a blind eye to any crime you may or may not be committing for a short period of time.” You’ll also earn RP for liking or disliking content and get more money from Parachute, Races, Deathmatches and LTS jobs when fewer than 4 players participated. It also fixed a huge number of glitches and problems, so check out Rockstar’s notes for the full details.
You probably remember we said the Capture Job creator would be coming this week, and it’s true. Starting this Friday, April 11, you’ll be able to create your own Capture Jobs. In celebration, you’ll earn double GTA$ and RP for any Capture Job you play between now and then.
If you’ve never played a Capture Job before, Rockstar recommends:
- Contend: Salty Snatch
- GTA: All Abhorred
- GTA: Field of Screams
- Hold: Frieght Fight
- Raid: High Road
- Raid: Wargames
Have fun, and let us know what you plan to do when the Capture Job creator comes out!
Today, Rockstar posted some of the new features that will be coming to GTA Online this spring. These updates begin next week, with the launch of the Capture Creator, which will allow you to create and upload Capture Jobs.
Next, you can look forward to the High Life Update, which brings new clothing, new high-class apartments, three new vehicles, the Bullpup Rifle, and the Dinka Thrust motorcycle. It will also allow GTA Online players to own two properties and garages at the same time, bring new jobs, and introduce the Mental State stat.
Perhaps the most exciting news, however, is that sometime this spring, you’ll be able to play Heist missions with a co-op partner, something a lot of fans have wanted for a while now. We aren’t sure exactly how this will work, but we’ll let you know as soon as we learn more.
Rockstar also plans to undo the recent fix that made motorcycle/bike stunts impossible, add an option to play races without collision effects, crack down on players who have used glitches to increase their RP, and more. Check out the official update for all the details, and for information on how to contact Rockstar with your own ideas.
It’s been a while since we heard new rumors about GTA Online’s mission creation tool. Today, Reddit user michaelpece posted pictures of a content creator he accidentally accessed. He thought it was the menu used by devs, but other users believe it will eventually be a part of the mission creator.
The images show options like “survival creator,” “parachute jump,” and “vehicle deathmatch,” among others. According to Reddit users, you can get parachute jump and vehicle deathmatch to work, albeit with bugs.
According to michaelpece, he was on the creator menu and was signed out of PSN, and then this apparent developers’ creation tool became available. When he tried to use it, it disappeared.
These look like very interesting features. What are your thoughts?
The newest title update for Grand Theft Auto V has patched a lot of issues with GTA Online. There are quite a few, but some are more notable than others.
If you time out while playing GTA Online, you’ll now be returned to an online lobby instead of being put in Single Player mode. You can now request a Personal Vehicle delivery even when you are in close proximity to your garage. You can skip the game’s tutorial if you already have a character of Rank 20 or higher. These are just some of the little issues that seem minor at first, but mean a lot to players.
The patch also adds the content of The Business Update DLC to the game and fixes several glitches and exploits. Check out Rockstar’s patch notes for a full list of all of the updates, changes, and fixes.
Last week we announced the new DLC content for GTA V, known as The Business Update. This update includes three new cars, two new weapons, an airplane, and a variety of new clothes and other customization options. You should be able to download the update now, so turn on your Xbox 360 or PS3 and check it out.
All of the vehicles will appear in your garage in single player mode, and the weapons will be added to your inventory. These items are also coming to GTA Online, where you will be able to purchase them from in-game stores, but when we last heard, the vehicles weren’t available yet. Be patient. They will come.
Some users seem to be having a little difficulty with the update, but since it isn’t supposed to officially arrive until tomorrow, we aren’t surprised. Check it out if you can, and let us know your thoughts.
If you aren’t content with taking “selfies” in real life, you can take some of your GTA character, thanks to a new trick found in GTA Online.
To take a third-person picture, park a car and stand in front of it. Open your in-game phone and move to the camera option, but don’t select it yet. Press the button (triangle on PS3, Y on Xbox 360) to get into your car, which will begin a third-person scene. Select the camera button to take a picture. To get the shot of your character from the front, just use the right stick to reverse the view.
This only works in GTA Online, but players are trying to find a way to make it work in GTA V’s single player, as well.
So, are you planning to take some pictures of yourself?
Rockstar just announced March 4’s The Business Update DLC for GTA V and GTA Online, but the announcement also included a mention of some of the new features planned for Story Mode, namely “new Assassination and Flight School missions.”
We don’t know if these are a part of the “substantial additions” they referenced back in December or if they’ll be released as separate side missions, but we hope this means their big plans are about to become a reality.
Stay tuned, and we’ll let you know the moment we learn about this or any other GTA V DLC.
We have good news, and we have bad news. The bad news is that you still won’t have new heists in GTA Online next week. The good news is that you will have new DLC.
The Business Update will hit PSN and Xbox Live on March 4. Three new cars are included, the Albany Alpha, the Dinka Jester, and the Grotti Turismo R, as well as an airplane called the Vestra. Two new weapons will also be added to Ammu-Nation, so get ready if you want to mow down your opponents with the Heavy Pistol or the Heavy Carbine.
As the DLC’s title suggests, there is a business element to all of this. You’ll be able to get both formal and casual business clothes, such as suits, slacks, and heels, and there are new hairstyles, as well. You can also get a currency tattoo or choose from a variety of new masks.
In Story Mode, you will automatically have the weapons added to your inventory and the cars added to garage properties. In GTA Online, you’ll have to buy them from Ammu-Nation, Legendary Motorsport, and Elitas.
Remember, if you have yet to pick up the items from the Valentine’s Day Massacre DLC, you need to do so by midnight PST on March 2, or you’ll miss your chance.
GTA Online has just gotten a little crazier, and in a game where you will most likely encounter players trying to kill you the moment they see you, that’s saying something.
Do you remember when we told you about the GTA V Content Creator? We’re pretty sure Rockstar intended it as a fun way for players to create their own content and then show it to other players. Well, fans often have a different idea of what is fun, and when one player figured out how to use the Content Creator in Free Roam public lobbies, the result was predictable—utter chaos.
Now you can find GTA Online sessions made up of 16 players all creating vehicles, barriers, ramps, and everything else, and placing them everywhere. We’re sure some players, somewhere, are using this cooperatively to create amazing new content and have a great time together. We’re equally sure that most games devolve into players doing crazy stuff to aggravate one another.
GTA Online has been plagued by glitches and exploits, but this sounds like one glitch that players are going to want to hang onto (and have a blast with while they can). Still, Rockstar is probably trying to work out a patch right now. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more about this unusual turn of events.
