Posted by Prometheus at 21:42. Site: GTA V. Category: General

Capture Modes Now AvailableCapture Modes Now Available

    Patch Notes

  • Increased cash payouts for losing teams in Last Team standing and Team Deathmatch.

  • Increased the cash and RP rewards for Races with multiple laps.

  • Cash payouts for Parachuting now take points scored into account.

  • Improved spawning for Deathmatches where the spawn points were previously very far apart.

  • Improved support for Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Russian in the Creator.

  • Calling the mechanic now shows you if a vehicle on the list is destroyed or impounded.

  • Team balancing does a better job of putting friends and crew members together.

  • BETA Crew Head to Head matches are now available to play. To initiate a Crew Head to Head, you'll need to create a Playlist that does not contain Vehicle Deathmatches, Survivals or any Jobs that require more than 2 teams. From there, go into My Playlists and you'll see a prompt for Head to Head (BETA). This will launch the lobby and you'll be able to invite other players from your Crew, Friend's Crews or Skill Matched Crews.

  • Player blips no longer remain red on Missions when the player has a Bounty.

  • Players who end a Race as DNF are now awarded cash relevant to the amount of checkpoints they passed through during the course of the Race.

  • Players who race solo now earn cash. Previously, zero cash was awarded for a solo race.

  • Last Team Standing, Capture and Missions are separated out in the Create Playlist menu.

  • Small deduction to the amount of cash the winners of Races, Parachuting and Last Team Standing matches receive in order to increase payouts for all other participants.

  • Masks are now removed during Races where a helmet is required and are also removed by default when a player uses the Smoking animation.

  • The Purchase All Ammo option now charges the full value of filling all player held weapons with ammo.

  • Fixes an issue where GTA Online players could reach North Yankton.

  • Fixes a rare issue where characters could be lost if the player attempted to join GTA Online when disconnected from the Network.

  • Fixes for various duplicate vehicle exploits.

  • Fixes issues when using the Character Select from inside the Creator.

  • Fixes issues with ammo vanishing after testing a Deathmatch in the Creator.

  • Fixes exploits of the Fastest Lap bonus.

  • Glasses from the Beach Bum update now appear in the inventory menu.

  • Players in Tanks now have more protection from other players attempting to deliberately give them a Bad Sport rating.

  • Bad Sport timers now read properly and show the correct time left in the Bad Sport lobby instead of 00d00h00m.

  • Also make sure to keep an eye on Rockstar's Social Club Online event this weekend featuring custom-made deathmaches and races in addition to the new Capture game modes.

    What are your thoughts about the new modes? Discuss at the forums.

    Capture the Flag Update Releases Tomorrow
    Posted by Kirsty at 00:28. Site: GTA V. Category: General

    Rockstar announced this evening that the latest patch to GTA Online will include new Capture the Flag style modes, and it will be out tomorrow on both PSN and Xbox Live (for free!)

    RAID - steal a package from the enemy base and return it to your own

    HOLD - store more packages in your base than the enemy

    GTA - steal vehicles from around the map and store more than the enemy in your base

    CONTEND - one package, two teams, only one can capture it

    There'll be 20 new Jobs utilising these four new modes. The game's namesake mode GTA appears most fun, with city buses and a Fieldmaster tractor being a few examples of vehicle targets; the latter being set in Grapeseed no less.

    Of course the update brings some all-important fixes and a few changes to gameplay too. You can read all the latest additions in the Patch Notes topic over on GTAForums.

    GTA Online: Hands On Preview
    Posted by Tsuroki at 20:04. Site: GTA V. Category: General

    Rockstar Games invited GTANet and other Grand Theft Auto fansites to New York City last week to experience Grand Theft Auto Online firsthand. The event took place at the Hotel on Rivington in Manhattan's Lower East Side neighbourhood. (This is the same venue where we had our first look at GTAIV in 2008.)

    As pretty much everyone knows, GTA Online launches tomorrow (October 1st). Access is free for anyone with a copy of Grand Theft Auto V.

    Grand Theft Auto Online Ain't Just GTA V Multiplayer

    The Rockstar team made it very clear to us that GTA Online is not just a 'multiplayer mode' for Grand Theft Auto V - it's an entirely standalone experience.

    Yes, you can access Online through the character select wheel in V, and yes, GTA Online takes place in Los Santos & Blaine County. But once you get into the thick of things, e.g. tackling missions with your friends or gunning through deathmatch-style competitions, it feels like that familiar GTAV setting is intended to act as a set of training wheels to get you off to a quick start.
