GTA Online’s free Deathmatch and Race Creators beta update is now available for PS3 and Xbox 360.
Expected yesterday, in order to get in on the creativity, just download the latest automatic title update to gain access to some of the same tools used by the game design and development teams to craft skirmishes and races in any of the following modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Race, GTA Race, and Rally Race.
To get started, players can access the Creator option from the Online tab of the pause menu. From here, you can start creating your own custom Deathmatches & Races or load and edit a previous creation. From there, you can check out a brief tutorial as well.
In Deathmatch Creator, you can set Weapon and Armor locations in addition to Spawn Points and in Races you can customize the number of racers and the size of the starting grid as well as add checkpoints to map out the route in created Races.
Once completed, users will be prompted to test the Deathmatch or Race against computer controlled characters. Completing a valid test before publishing ensures the race is working perfectly, and will prevent the user from publishing or playing someone else’s broken match.
Published creations appear inside the player’s GTA Online session and on the Social Club website. Rockstar will also be periodically reviewing the best community-created content to recognize and distinguish them as Rockstar Verified.
Along with the Deathmatch & Race Creators Beta, the latest automatic title update has some new fixes and updates for Grand Theft Auto 5′s Story Mode and GTA Online, including the option to create weapon-locked deathmatches, giving players the ability to “run inside their apartments and higher cash payouts when increasing the difficulty on Missions.”
