GAMES DEVELOPER Rockstar has rolled out an update for Grand Theft Auto Online (GTA Online), the multiplayer version of its criminal fantasy game Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5).
The update is available now for both the Playstation 3 (PS3) and Xbox 360 games consoles and Rockstar said that all users have to do to get it is accept the automatic update that's presented to them.
Users will be able to create custom games using the same system that its design and development teams employ, it added, and can build their own deathmatch and race scenarios.
Rockstar said that it is also providing fixes and title updates for both GTA Online and the GTA 5 story mode. "Along with the Deathmatch & Race Creators Beta, the latest automatic title update has a host of new fixes and updates for Grand Theft Auto V's Story Mode and GTA Online, including the flexibility to create weapon-locked deathmatches, giving players the ability to run inside their apartments and higher cash payouts when increasing the difficulty on Missions," said Rockstar.
"Control the pace of your custom match with gameplay options Team Start Points and Spawn Points. With the operational foundation laid, dig into a full suite of Weapons and Vehicle customization; all weapon and vehicle classes are at your disposal to place around your Deathmatch."
The update sounds sophisticated, as does the match creation feature. There are tutorials available to show you how it works, and involved features like props that you can scatter around your play map.
Game types are self explanatory, and you can either have all out shooting battles or a range of driving missions. Once you have created a deathmatch or driving mission you will be able to invite other people to play it with you. µ
