Well, that was quick! Following yesterday’s announcement, Rockstar has just officially released the 1.29 update for GTA Online, containing the massive Freemode Events DLC pack.
The update completely reworks the basis on which the entirety of GTA Online is constructed. The new update wipes away lobbies, loading screens and menus, ensuring a fully seamless and immersive experience. Freemode Events also brings around a dozen new activities, jobs and missions for you to complete with strangers, friends and crew members, including the likes of Hunt the Beast and Penned In. To find out more about all the new missions, click here.
The new update will also be adding two whole new Adversary game modes, called Hunting Pack and Cross the line, respectively. You can read more about them here.
As announced a while back, 1.29 will not only be improving the Rockstar Editor vastly with a slew of new features, it will also be porting the acclaimed GTA V video editor to the current generation consoles, meaning the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One. To find out more about the new features and the console announcement, click here and here.
The new 1.29 update also alters the way the Creator works, to better facilitate some insane constructions. Stacking and overlapping props now functions properly, and prop templates can be saved, making the creation of crazy parkour maps much easier.
To celebrate the release of the massive update, Rockstar is giving players some new incentives to try out the new content. Any and all players who successfully complete at least 5 of the new events introduced in GTA Online 1.29 between today and Sunday, the 20., will get a reward of GTA $50,000 and a limited Vapid in-game shirt item.
You can download GTA Online patch 1.29 now on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. Last-gen consoles have had content support discontinued.
