Rockstar Games continues to grow GTA Online, the multiplayer portion of Grand Theft Auto V, and now we’ve got a sense of what to expect over the next few months. The timetable isn’t any more specific than “spring,” and it’s not clear what order these are due to arrive in, but they’re all expected to arrive before summer descends on June 21. Expected. Things can change, don’t forget.
The new Capture Creator joins the previously released Deathmatch and Race Creators, with this one allowing players to craft their own – wait for it! – Capture mode matches (think CTF). You’ll be able to “place pick-ups, define weaponry, set location, and tweak tons of other variables,” according to Rockstar, and all content will be reviewed for potential inclusion as Rockstar Verified Jobs.
The High Life Update, much like the recent Business Update, adds a range of free themed content to GTA Online. This includes new high-end apartments, new Jobs, a Bullpup Rifle, four new vehicles (one motorcycle, three super-cars), and new wardrobe options. The update also adds the ability for players to own as many as two properties with their own garages and a “Mental State” player statistic that helps others get a sense of how nuts the other people in their lobby are.
Finally, the long-awaited cooperative Heists will be coming sometime in the spring. There’s no details at all on how this will work in GTA Online, but you might already have a sense if you’ve cruised through GTA V‘s story mode. Rockstar has more DLC planned for later in the year as well, including holiday-themed updates and a mysterious story DLC.
You can read more about all of this as well as what’s going to be added in forthcoming title updates in Rockstar’s latest Newswire post.
