Rockstar has confirmed that the free Deathmatch and Race Creator DLC will be coming to Grand Theft Auto Online later this week (the Creators beta is expected to land tomorrow), while the first dose of story DLC for Grand Theft Auto V proper will be arriving sometime in 2014, alongside GTA Online's long-awaited heists.

"For those ready to jump back into the story of Grand Theft Auto V, we have big plans for substantial additions in 2014 continuing Michael, Franklin and Trevor's action, mayhem and unexpected adventures in Southern San Andreas," reads an update on the Rockstar News Wire.

GTA Online is also set to get a new 'Capture' mode later in the month, featuring Raid, Contend, Hold and GTA variations, in a twist on capture the flag. The update will add new jobs in which you have to steal contraband, trucks, buses and a variety of other things from your opponent's base using "high-speed vehicles, explosive weaponry and teamwork".

There'll be more on Grand Theft Auto V's story mode content and GTA Online heists in the new year.

@1 what's wrong with online? You can cruise with your friends and lose hours in it.

So ready for heists!

At least it seems like the story DLC was actually made post-release, rather than withheld from the game.

Free DLC is nice and all, but i think its just stuff that couldn't make the cut off when the game came out (probably on the disc already). The online is only fun when playing with a crew or friends now. They really need to add more to it.

I've got a few ideas for races in mind.

I'd care more about DM if I could figure out how to switch aiming mode of my own accord. Soft lock in this game just turns it into corner camping. Anyone know how to switch manually?

Yaaaaaaawn, I called this when ages ago. They are just dragging the heists out to squeeze in more time for people to buy micro-transactions before the heist payouts make them redundant...not like the money glitches haven't already, but for people like myself who play legitimately and get about $2.50 per 15 minute mission I play the heists can't some soon enough. How R* are still being lauded as a developer in touch with their fan base is beyond me. They are money-grubbing shits just like anyone else.

@4 Not everyone as a group of friends who play online. They should have just created a co-op mode so a group of friends can do whatever the hell they want. Online isn't engaging nor fun when you're by yourself and have dumb little shits running you over the minute you spawn. The achievements are terrible. I've done the same thing in story mode, why do them again in online to haveto rank up to level 100? Nonsense. I get more enjoyment running around LS myself in the story mode doing the same thing and not having some douch ruin my day.

OT Glad Rockstar recognizes that DLC should be added for the story. It's a shame they did not learn this for RDR.

Online is terrible. It's a game of "the highest level player always wins", meaning the lower level players have no chance to catch up unless they pay out the ass for the microtransactions. Seriously, the spawns in the game are terrible. If some guy comes over and blasts me with a rocket launcher, I don't want to appear three feet away from him -_-

Seriously considering trading this game in. The online is just World of Tanks and doesn't really require any real skill SP was amazing MP sort of got lost once next Gen came out.

@9 All lobbies are filtered by aim-type ie. everyone in the game uses the same. You have to set it from the settings in single player then search for an online game.

OT: Will be looking forward to the SP DLC...

#16: Ah nice. I always went Free Aim for SP and Soft Lock for MP on Max Payne 3 so I was puzzled when the selection wasn't immediately apparent.

My favorite MP game modes are Grab the Bag and Hold Your Own from Red Dead Redemption. Here's hoping Capture the Flag will be half as good as either of them.

I'm not holding my breath, however.

@#12 - Red Dead had SP DLC. Did you not play Undead Nightmare?

@4/7... The few hours I did play it for seemed boring/repetitive and just didn't appeal to me at all. I got all of the single player achievements and was hoping to 1000 it but I can't even bare the online to do it

I've got to level 89 and am going to play other games. R* have made it such a chore to level up it's not that fun any more. I'll come back to it when heists are available as the extra MP modes will probably still pay out crap RP.

Off topic: can the staff seriously make it so you need 1-5 forum posts before being able to comment. So sick of these random posts about earning $10000 an hour.

Could be as soon as that or a whole 12 months...all they (and myself) are really saying is "hang tight, its working"

The online pretty much sucks if you are not playing free roam with friends. Heists sound good on paper but think it will be a grind and leave thing like the rest of the online. Story DLC could be fun.

And yes, next year is a month away but that also means they have 12 months to release content :p

Couldn't care less until they patch the Epsilon missions. Pretty simple, fix what's already broken before creating more dlc.
To be honest, now being the older generation and all the Online BS from the first few weeks has taken quite the shine off of GTA V. Rockstar are human after all.
If it comes out on the One, maybe. We'll see.

Oh, and GTA online = meh.

This is all too little, too late. Last night, I played online for the first time since getting my One. It's the same nonsense: game services unavailable so I couldn't save, people not voting after matches so you sit doing nothing for 45 seconds, a moron in an attack Buzzard trying to bomb people for no reason. Why would I want more of that just to do a few new things that won't really add that much.
They need to fix the game's little things and make it playable instead of adding new stuff that will be just as unfun due to the shitty annoyances that make the Online suck right now.
Pouring strawberry jam on a turd won't really make it taste much better.

Everyone complaining on this post about the online being terrible are probably the ones who suck at the game. It's pretty much like that with any game that people aren't good at but complain about how much it sucks

I pretty much had enough of online when I did that first (mandatory) race and kept getting bashed into buildings by other players. And now that I haven't done anything online since they nerfed payouts into oblivion, I probably won't try it since I won't stand a chance against those who made massive bank beforehand.
