‘Grand Theft Auto Online’ Content Creator Video Leaked

Dec 2, 2013 by  

 It may not have been the next-gen form of multiplayer that some hoped, but Grand Theft Auto Online still has more than enough players to keep fans of chaos and friendly competition busy for the foreseeable future. Of course, every online multiplayer game has taught us, developers can never match the creativity of their most devoted players.

With that in mind, the expectations and excitement for GTA Online‘s Content Creator tools are as high as possible. Although Rockstar Games may be keeping quiet, a new video gives a brief glimpse of how the mode will function.

Unfortunately, technology still isn’t quite advanced enough to give would-be developers the reins in the singleplayer aspect of the game, so Grand Theft Auto 5 players will have to be content with the existing missions (at least until GTA5 comes to the PC, if ever). But as far as online Deathmatches and Races are concerned, enthusiasts will soon have a wider variety of offerings.

The video doesn’t go too in-depth with the Content Creator, confirming little besides the fact that weapons, vehicles, spawn points, and cosmetic adjustments will all be customizable for specific matches or modes. That might seem to limit the amount of customization available, but considering what miracles have been produced in the past using the game, it’s unwise to underestimate what could result.

Grand Theft Auto 5 PC and PS4 Clues

It’s impossible to tell exactly how the YouTube user in question has gained access to the Content Creator tools, since it’s unclear if the video features an early look at the actual systems, or merely outdated pieces found on the disc itself. Even so, there’s enough visible to get a sense of how Rockstar will be welcoming players into the creation process, and organizing the wealth of options.

We can only hope that the launch of the Content Creator system will go better than the launch of GTA Online proper. So although the customization tools have yet to be released, it’s safe to assume that many players would prefer Rockstar only make them accessible once the wrinkles have been ironed out.

How have your experiences with GTA Online been to this point? Will the added options bring you back to San Andreas, or has the launch of next-gen consoles stolen most of your attention? Sound off in the comments.

  1. Time to make some melee only deathmatches.

  2. Don’t like end of your article, kind of a snarky attitude to it with all your questions presupposing tat this game has already lost the interest of the ADHD generation..
