Rockstar adds track editor to GTA Online stunt race mode

  1. Rockstar Games has released yet another update for Grand Theft Auto V, further bolstering the TrackMania-style Cunning Stunts update for GTA Online it pushed out last month.

    If you somehow missed it, the July update added the ability to take driving in GTA Online to a whole new level thanks to insane tracks, zany stunts, vehicle-related mini-games and more.

    Up to this point, however, players have had to settle for Rockstar’s selection of tracks. The developer has released 27 to date but with the latest update, there will soon be a lot more to choose from. That’s because gamers now have the ability to create their own tracks using the new Stunt Race Creator tool.

    Naturally, custom creations can be saved and shared with the rest of the GTA Online community. Rockstar has even published a guide if you need help creating a track (PDF here).

    It’s as if Rockstar is on a personal mission to pull me into the game as this type of gameplay is right up my alley.

    The update also includes a new Adversary Mode called Entourage. The company says this mode requires tactical teamwork and involves bodyguards that must transport a well-armored and armed target to a designated extraction point while battling a team of assassins hell-bent on taking out the target.

    To make things even more interesting, the extraction point and all assassins are only visible to the target via their mini-map. This means that the bodyguards must rely on communication in order to safely deliver the target to the extraction point.

    Rockstar is also offering double GTA$ and RP in Entourage. What's more, Cunning Stunts tattoos and clothing are 25 percent off through August 11.

    Glad they're working on the real issues like loading times and broken lobbies and the fact that it's impossible to fill mission lobbies

    A pity it's multiplayer only, that means I'll never get to use or appreciate it.
