GTA Online's Content Creator Leaked in New Videos

GTA Online's Content Creator Leaked in New Videos

Expect the new toolset in an upcoming update to the open-world crimeathon.

While Grand Theft Auto Online has been a bit of a disappointment so far, one of the most potentially interesting upcoming features is the Content Creator, set to arrive in an impending update.

The Content Creator allows players of Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer mode to create their own "jobs" and share them with other players, though there are limitations -- the types of events you can create are limited to deathmatches and races (on land, sea or in the air), and the Creator isn't able to go underground or enter buildings, so forget that shootout in the LifeInvader offices you had planned. To be fair, Rockstar has never said it would be able to do anything more, but it would be nice to be able to set up complex events or cooperative content at some point in the future.

YouTube user Funmw2, who also recently uncovered unused voice files relating to potential upcoming DLC, has posted a series of videos showing an early version of the Content Creator in action. The code for the toolset is apparently already present in the game files, but rather limited at present, plus actually sharing and playing this content with other people is not officially supported right now.

The videos give a reasonable impression of what to expect from the Content Creator. It looks as if you'll be able to place weapons and spawn points from either an overhead map view or in the standard third-person on-foot view, and a mysterious "Place Triggers" option suggests there might be the potential for adding dynamic events during custom jobs.

You'll also be able to customize various features such as the wanted level during a race, the radio station that plays by default when the event starts and the camera view while waiting in a lobby for an event to begin.

There's potential for some fun here, but it makes me all the more curious what modders will get up to if and when Rockstar ever gets around to releasing a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V.
