GTA Online introduces capture modes tomorrow

Raid, Hold, GTA, and Contend

As of an update dropping tomorrow on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, there's going to a GTA mode in Grand Theft Auto Online in Grand Theft Auto V. Huh? Rockstar is introducing 20 new Jobs in GTA Online based on capture the flag, which will be playable in four different modes:

  • Raid - Steal a package from the opponents' base and safely return it to yours.
  • Hold - Steal or find as many packages across the map as possible, get them back to your base, and keep them there.
  • GTA - Steal more target vehicles located throughout Los Santos than the opposing team.
  • Contend - A single package is in the middle of the map, which must be taken to your base. Afterwards, it'll respawn in the middle again.

Unnamed fixes and tweaks will also make it into this patch on PS3 and Xbox 360. As nice as this all sounds, it's still not co-op heists and until those are available, nothing will seem good enough.
