Rockstar Games has been steadily adding update after update to Grand Theft Auto Online, and now they’re giving you more to do.
Rockstar is introducing Freeroam Events to GTA Online. Without the need of loading, menus, or lobbies, events will start up randomly while freeroaming in GTAO’s overworld. Events have immense variety. They can be simple, such as who can perform the longest jump. Or they can be very elaborate like Hunt The Beast, where a random player becomes super strong, only for the other players to be tasked in taking him down without the use of the radar.
With this update, Rockstar will also be bringing in two new Adversary Modes. Hunting Pack pays homage to the classic action movie Speed, where your team must deliver a high priority vehicle without dropping to a minimal speed limit, while other players attempt to take you down in the process. Then there’s Cross The Line, where heavily-armed teams fight on a neutral ground, while your entire team must make it alive to your opponents’ area intact.
With this update, Rockstar is finally bringing the Rockstar Video Editor to PS4 and Xbox One, with new additions like ambient sound, Snapmatic integration, and more. Keep in mind that these new updates will be passed along to the PC version as well.
Freeroam Events will be available for free for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 15th.
Grand Theft Auto V is now available for PC, Playstation 4, XBOX One, Playstation 3, and XBOX 360.
