A free GTA Online update which enables you to create your own races and deathmatch scenarios is now online and should be available when you next play the game.
Here’s an official description from Rockstar:
“The free Deathmatch & Race Creators Beta update for Grand Theft Auto Online is now available for PS3 and Xbox 360. Just download the latest automatic title update to gain access to some of the same tools our own game design and development teams use to craft custom skirmishes and races in any of the following modes:
- Team Deathmatch
- GTA Race
- Rally Race
To get started, access the Creator option from the Online tab of the pause menu. From here, you can start creating your own custom Deathmatches & Races or load and edit a previous creation.”
The blog post over at Rockstar’s Newswire talks you through how to create new scenarios and is a very handy tutorial. The whole tool seems really great, this is exactly what I would have liked in GTA Online from the start. The idea of creating you own races appeals to me immensely, I know a lot of people who have been artificially creating races but now they can do it for real!
Let me know in the comments if you are still playing GTA Online, unfortunately I have dropped off but this update might just drag me back in…
