Adding on to the over 4 million player-created Deathmatches and Races, the Creator community (you and other fans) can now make their own original customized Capture Jobs with the Capture Creator Update
for GTA Online. Strategically place pick-ups, define weaponry, location and lots of other variables to make your own unique Capture Job for others to take on. As usual Rockstar will be reviewing your homemade Capture creations to stamp standout experiences as Rockstar Verified
As a little bonus for early birds in the community who are planning to make the first Capture creation masterpieces this weekend, Rockstar is going to give 4 creators the opportunity to score a cool $GTA1,000,000
and the exclusive in-game CAPTURE license plate
in the #CaptureWeekend Awards
. The four official selections will also join the hallowed ranks of Rockstar Verified Jobs and be invited to join Rockstar on a future live broadcast on Twitch to play through and talk about their creations.
To help you get started, they've created a handy PDF guide
that will walk you through the process of creating your own Capture Jobs.
Rockstar is also extending the 2X GTA$ and RP period
that was originally scheduled to end today through next week - so playing any Capture Jobs
, including those made with the Creator tools will earn you twice as much GTA$ and RP until the end of the day on Sunday, April 20th!
To submit your published Capture Job for consideration head to the GTA Online section of Social Club and find your created Jobs. In the details area of the Job you think is worthy, click the Edit Tags
button at the bottom, add #CaptureWeekend
to the edit box, and click Save. The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM Eastern on Sunday. See full terms and conditions here
Have fun and share your creations in the new Creator forum at the GTA V forums
Posted on 08 Apr 2014 (630 Views)
As promised, this Friday, April 11th, you'll be able to construct your own Capture Jobs with the GTA Online Creator
tool. This update will let you create Jobs across any of the four Capture Job variants - Contend, GTA, Hold, and Raid - and publish them for all to play, rate and share via the Rockstar Games Social Club.
In honor of this forthcoming update and to help you hone your skills for the wave of new player-made Capture creations to come, from now until Friday
playing any of the official Capture Jobs in GTA Online will earn you twice as much GTA$ and RP
. If you haven't yet played Capture Mode in GTA Online, it's a GTA twist on classic capture the flag style confrontations that brings a whole new level of adversarial action to the world of Los Santos and Blaine County. Strategy plays a huge role as you run decoys, set traps and place obstacles to ensure your enemies don't get close to your goods.
Today, there is also a new Title Update available that includes many fixes including bonus RP
every time you like or dislike content after playing it, the ability to call Lester and have him instruct the cops to turn a blind eye to criminal activity for a short period of time, as well as increased payouts
for completing Parachute, Races, Deathmatches and LTS Jobs with less than four players. To get the new update, just go online with your PS3 or Xbox 360 and GTAV. You'll be prompted to download an automatic update. For the full list of fixes and changes, check out this article at the Rockstar Support page

Create your own Capture job? Check. New DLC? Check. Heists? ... Finally, check! Rockstar has given everyone a quick glimpse of things coming our way this spring in Grand Theft Auto Online (and likely singleplayer too).
You'll soon be able to own multiple properties in GTA Online as part of the forthcoming High Life Update.
Coming next week, the Creator community will be able to make their own original customized Capture Jobs
and add to the over 3.5 million (and counting) player-created Deathmatches and Races currently available on Social Club. Strategically place pick-ups, define weaponry, set location, and tweak tons of other variables to make your own unique Capture Job for others to take on.
THE HIGH LIFE UPDATE
The High Life Update will allow you to expand your foothold in Los Santos with new high-end apartment options
, the powerful Bullpup Rifle
, new wardrobe items, the Dinka Thrust motorcycle
and three new lavish cars to choose from, including the Super class Pegassi Zentorno
. The High Life Update will also feature the debut of multi-property ownership in GTA Online, which means you'll be able to own two distinct properties (with garages) simultaneously. All this plus the new Mental State player statistic, which is designed to let you see just how passive or psychotically unhinged fellow players in your session really are, and a slew of new Jobs.
The new Dewbauchee Massacro and Pegassi Zentorno racing down West Eclipse Blvd
The Bullpup Rifle, coming soon to Ammu-Nation.
Coming this spring to Grand Theft Auto Online, team up with your most trusted Crew members or with random other mercenaries in Grand Theft Auto Online to pull off cooperative Heist Missions for glory and profit. Rockstar knows many in the GTA Online community have been looking forward to this update.
And later this year, look for even more additions to both Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V, including more holiday-themed updates, some very exciting Story Mode DLC, and much more!
CONTINUING REFINEMENTS BASED ON YOUR FEEDBACK
Rockstar continues to value your feedback on GTAO. If you have suggestions send them to GTAOnline@rockstargames.com
. In upcoming Title Updates and via dynamic tuning, you can expect:
- The addition of a 'Non-Contact' option for Races. This will allow you to play standard Races with collisions disabled between player vehicles. Other players will appear as semi-transparent and you'll still be able to collide with non-player traffic, structures and other scenery, but this mode - for those who want to play it - will eliminate the "rubbing is racing" mentality that some wish to avoid.
- Players will be able to call Lester and have him tell his cop buddies to turn a blind eye to any crime you may or may not be committing for a short period of time.
- As a reward for players who leave feedback on Jobs, there will be some bonus RP granted every time a player likes or dislikes content after playing it.
- GTA$ payouts will be increased when completing Parachute, Races, Deathmatches and LTS Jobs with less than 4 players.
- As part of the ongoing commitment to target cheaters and keep the game as fair as possible, Rockstar is closing RP exploits and will be adjusting the RP totals of players who they know for certain to have gained illegitimate RP by cheating. Your RP will only be adjusted if you participated in mods, hacks, DNS redirects, manipulation of cloud files, or other similarly nefarious behavior. If you grinded short legitimate missions or otherwise gained a small amount of RP without modding, your RP should not be affected by this correction.
- They'll be fixing the issue where players who had upgraded personal vehicles prior to Title Update 1.10 were only able to sell them for $10,000.

The next update to GTA Online is coming next week on Tuesday, March 4th, titled The Business Update
Thrill-seekers and weekend warriors can hop in any of three all-new, blazing fast sports cars: the Albany Alpha, Dinka Jester and Grotti Turismo R... or take to the skies in the new Vestra airplane.
Take to the skies in the luxurious Vestra.
Swing by Ammu-Nation to pick up two new weapons, the Heavy Pistol and Special Carbine, which both offer some serious firepower. Then dress for success with formal and business casual attire options like new suit jackets, slacks, glasses, heels and blouses, or don new all-business hairstyles and currency themed tattoos. There's also a collection of new masks, perfect for disguising yourself during the next hostile takeover.
The Heavy Pistol and Special Carbine, two new weapons available as part of The Business Update.
Just like the recent Valentine's Day Massacre Special, the new vehicles and weapons will be available in both Story Mode and Online. In Story Mode, weapons will be deposited into all three characters' inventory with two full ammo-clips and all three cars are accessible from their garage properties. In GTA Online, you'll be able to purchase the new weapons and their attachments at any Ammu-Nation location while the vehicles will be available for purchase from Legendary Motorsport and Elitas.

Don't forget that this weekend is your last chance to grab the Albany Roosevelt limousine, the Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun and all the rest of the exclusive items from the Valentine's Day Massacre Special before they're gone. Once you purchase them in-game, they're yours to keep - but they will no longer be available to purchase after midnight PST this Sunday, March 2nd.
