Today, Rockstar Games made a formal announcement that GTA Online will be receiving a free Capture update tomorrow over PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. Capture will feature 20 new jobs that will span across 4 unique modes and be accessible in Freemode. Below is a brief description of all 4 of the modes that will be available once this update goes live tomorrow:
RAID: In Raid, you’ll have to fight your way into your opponents’ base and steal a package, then deliver it back to your base to score points. Reach the target score, or deliver more packages than your opponents do in the allotted time to win the match.
HOLD: When playing Hold, teams must collect and store as many packages as possible in their base. Packages can either be found on the map, or stolen from the opposing team’s bases. Reach the target score, or hold the most packages when the time runs out, to win.
GTA: As the ubiquitous acronym might suggest, GTA mode tasks players with stealing target vehicles located all around the map, before bringing them back to their respective bases. Each team must fight to steal more vehicles in the allotted time than their opponents.
CONTEND: In Contend, there’s only one package, situated in the middle of the map. Teams must fight to bring this package back to their respective bases, and once the package is captured it respawns in the middle of the map and is up for grabs again.
Rockstar describes this automatic update as a spin on capture the flag but with an elevated focus on confrontation and chaos. While many fans will be content with what this update has to offer, the truth of the matter is that a majority of people are waiting for the heists missions to be added to the GTA Online experience. Rockstar has stated that those updates won’t be arriving until sometime in 2014.
