Next week GTA Online gets the Freemode Events update. These are live events that promise to kick off in freemode every 12 minutes, offering players a number of varied objectives. These are optional, and cover all the standard GTA Online activities: stealing, racing, killing, killing while racing and stealing. And more.
Adversary: Cross The Line
Teams fight to get over the line and into the opponents zone. All team members need to cross to win. Sounds bloody.
Adversary: Hunting Pack
You have to deliver a vehicle rigged to blow if it drops below a certain speed. Everyone else has to smash your vehicle to pieces. But smashing a fire truck to pieces isn’t so easy, is it?
Pass through 120 checkpoints on the map, all of which cough up cash. The player with the most checkpoints wins.
Simple. Cause as much damage as possible within a set time to win. Break out the minigun and the rocket launchers.
Grab a suitcase and deliver it before others kill you, steal the case and deliver it themselves.
Get high. Then dive. From the sky.
Hold the Wheel
Be the player behind the target vehicle when the five minute countdown expires. The target vehicles are likely to be quirky, like the golf buggy here.
Another briefcase job, but this time you win by having held it for the longest when the timer is up.
Hunt The Beast
One player is “the beast” and becomes invisible, tasked with grabbing ten checkpoints on the map. The checkpoint itself shows briefly when passed, but by then the beast should have already moved on. Other players must kill the beast before it passes all 10 checkpoint. You get to dress like Teen Wolf.
Get to the (armoured) vehicle with a set number of players and kill waves of enemies. Comes in Competitive variation where you go head-to-head with other player vehicles.
I dunno. Do the longest jump?
I am the master at wheelies. Watch me wheelie.
This sounds like a Simeon mission. Get the vehicle and deliver it to the location before anyone else does.
Score points for near misses. The player with the most points after a set time wins.
A race of sorts where you must stay inside a circle. But the circle is shrinking and if you stray outside of it you’ll blow up.
There’s going to be a blip on the map where you can try to beat a record lap time. This will change every week. Sounds like one for the petrol heads.
King of the Castle
Get to a location and hold it for points. The longer you stay in the location, the more points you gain.
Freemode Events come to GTA Online on September 15.
