Rockstar Games has announced that this 11 April, players of the GTA Online will see the addition of players creating their own Capture Jobs. Iin the run up to that update, players will now be able to earn double the RPs and cash than they did previously.
GTA Online gets Title Update 1.12.
Apart from Capture Jobs, Rockstar revealed that it will be releasing the new Title Update 1.12 which will also see addition of bonus RP, if a player likes or dislikes a job, bug fixes and many more. Players can also call in Lester who is able to distract the cops for some time. The cash rewards for players completing Parachute, Races, Deathmatches and LTS Jobs with less than four players, said Rockstar in a statement in Rockstar Newswire.
The bug fixes will stop glitches like turning the car invisible and players will not be able to use the weapons at their place to kill players. Players might also find the ability to call Lester helpful as his influence might allow players to commit crimes but cops might overlook it for a short time.
Rockstar has also asked players to check out the following Capture Jobs:
- Contend: Salty Snatch
- GTA: All Abhorred
- GTA: Field of Screams
- Hold: Freight Fight
- Raid: High Road
- Raid: Wargames
