Still playing Grand Theft Auto V online? Well, if you’re playing on PS4, Xbox One or PC, prepare for a massive update to the Freemode Events via Rockstar’s latest content drop. Sadly, last-gen versions won’t be getting this new content. Actually they won’t be getting anything else again, which is makes that STILL high-price of the new-gen version all the more annoying.
There’s a full rundown courtesy of Rockstar’s newswire below. But there’s also a trailer if you just want to see some of it in action.
Hunt the Beast
Become the Beast – players become a stronger, faster (and hairier) version of their character – and flee relentless pursuers all over Los Santos and Blaine County.
King of the Castle
An every man for himself turf war where players will need to ascend and claim the designated ‘castle’ as their territory – and then fend off everyone else as they go all out to dethrone them.
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. Try and become one of the three players who hold the briefcase the longest to score GTA$ and RP bonuses.
The first player to enter a marked vehicle will become the Moving Target, tasked with safely delivering the vehicle to a designated location. While the marked vehicles will be durable, it’ll take some serious elusive finesse to survive other players’ attempts to destroy you before the drop point.
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.
Kill List and Kill List Competitive
Take control of some of heavy artillery and duke it out with the mercenaries from Merryweather Security. Rack up GTA$ and RP for each kill.
Fight for possession of valuable contraband and see if you can make the drop first in this ruthless smuggler’s run.
When players see the enormous dome appear over the Los Santos skyline, they should jump into the closest ride and find their way into it before the timer starts. Then, they should stay within the dome as it begins to move and shrink, smashing and bashing rivals out. Those players who are left out of the dome for more than 7 seconds will explode.
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.
Hold the Wheel
A Sanchez, a Golf Cart or another otherwise humble mode of transport is made into an indestructible marked vehicle. Players should take command of it and avoid all the other jackers and assailants in their session to be the one behind the driver’s seat when time runs out. Players should try and go for it solo to keep the entire GTA$ award for themselves or shrewdly partner up with a gunner to ride with you for protection and split the earnings.
Record the fastest time possible, with a new course to master every week that awards players GTA$ and RP for beating our target time or their own personal best – and a championship worthy haul if players can take down the World Record.
