Changelog for GTA Online Freemode Events Update - August 15, 2015
New Content
  • Rockstar Editor has been added for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
  • Freemode Events have been added to GTA Online which unlock after completing the tutorial or are available immediately if the tutorial was skipped. New activities are:
    • Hunt the Beast
    • King of the Castle
    • Hot Property
      • Grab the briefcase and go! Jump into a car, bike, boat, motorcycle, P-996 Lazer or just run for the hills with the coveted contraband in hand. Be one of the three players who hold the briefcase the longest to score GTA$ and RP bonuses.

    • Moving Target
    • Checkpoint Challenge
      • Compete with all your Freemode competitors in a mad dash across southern San Andreas. Who will be the first to race or fly through all the designated checkpoints for fame, fortune and reputation.

    • Kill List and Kill List Competitive
      • Take control of some of heavy artillery and duke it out with the mercenaries from Merryweather Security. Rack up GTA$ and RP for each kill.

    • Dead Drop
    • Penned In
      • When you see the enormous dome appear over the Los Santos skyline, jump into the closest ride and find your way into it before the timer starts. Then, stay within the dome as it begins to move and shrink, smashing and bashing rivals out. Those who are left out of the dome for more than 7 seconds will explode. See if you can be the sole survivor at the very end.

    • Criminal Damage
      • Whet your appetite for destruction with all-you-can-eat buffet. Get strapped with a favorite piece of heavy artillery and let loose over a given time period with no wanted level in sight. Wanton destruction is rewarded with every bullet hole and blast. The player with the largest property damage bill who causes the most destruction will win.

    • Hold the Wheel
    • Time Trial
      • Record the fastest time possible, with a new course to master every week that awards you GTA$ and RP for beating our target time or your own personal best - and a championship worthy haul if you can take down the World Record.
