Rockstar recently announced and subsequently released update 1.29 for GTA online. The update contains the Freemode Events DLC pack as well as the updated version of the Rockstar Editor which is coming for the first time to current generation consoles, namely the Xbox One and Playstation 4 (note the PC version of the Editor is also getting the new features).
The initial announcement of the GTA Online update only mentioned 4 of the new events, while it was later revealed that there were 12 in total. This led players to assume that there was still more to Freemode Events than meets the eye, and it seems that assumption was correct.
With the release of the patch notes for GTA Online 1.29, and the update itself, players have begun to discover previously unlisted new features which the massive update has implemented.
Aside from the host of bug fixes and various backstage tweaks, the update introduced some smaller features worth mentioning. For one, now you can accept and send friend invites while playing the game’s single player mode provided you are connected to the internet. Vehicle spawn points have been revamped over the board, but this is most apparent in the case of aerial vehicles (which have become more common) and the Barracks military truck (which can be encountered at certain times of day).
Players also now have the ability to customize their mini maps, getting rid of the incomprehensible clutter the slew of new markers and blips is bound to cause. You can toggle practically all markers on or off at your leisure in any combination, as well as doing away with the pesky pop-up notifications.
While hardly a feature, there is an exploit which allows players to track the Werewolf in the “Hunt the Beast” game mode using the players tab in the menu. Have you guys tried out any of the new events in GTA Online? Thoughts?
