GTA 5: Here are your first 'Rockstar verified' Grand Theft Auto Online jobs
Earlier this month, Rockstar Games released the Content Creator tool for Grand Theft Auto Online, the online multiplayer portion of GTA 5. For those unfamiliar, this provides players with some of the necessary developer tools for players to create their own Jobs (missions) and share it with the entire GTA Online community, essentially ensuring a flow of new and exciting things to do in the game.
As Rockstar explained at the time, they would even sift through some of the published creations, pick the "best community-created content," and share them with the entire community as distinguished "Rockstar Verified Jobs." Today, we have our first batch, which you can download and enjoy today. Due to the current limitations of the beta, the verified jobs only consist of races and deathmatches, but some of them sound really fun.
"These Jobs have been hand-selected and tested by us," Rockstar notes. "Please note that all Job names below are as originally chosen by their creators, except where we felt obliged to change them due to taste, copyright or other reasons. Also please note that when Jobs are Rockstar Verified, they become available for play across both platforms, so players on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 can all enjoy these now."
Below are the official jobs, courtesy of Rockstar.
You may have seen us playing this one during last weekend’s Social Club Event live-stream show. "Over the Hill", from the veteran LXG Crew and their outspoken leader LXG No Mercy, is currently amongst the top 10 most popular Xbox 360 Jobs. This epic up-and-downhill off-road Race climbs over Mt. Chiliad with multiple obstacles to navigate through some of the roughest terrain San Andreas has to offer.
Another of the top 10 most popular Xbox 360 Jobs, this Race has some extreme jumps spanning five major areas. Not-so-shy to show off his own take on a creative jump-shot, keatonw33 takes us through a chaotic but fun endurance test as he challenges: “Your car will need all the armor it can get… maybe wings too!”
This simple Race arranges some perfectly placed jumps along a dusty stretch of highway starting in Mount Gordo and ending up in the Grand Senora Desert. See if you have what it takes to brave this deadly game of heavy metal hopscotch.
A very fun Los Santos Race from a member of the Velocity X Crew, this challenging double-helix-looking circuit of "tricky twists and turns" will put your cornering skills to the test.
Spawn into this Deathmatch with Rhinos, Lazers and Buzzards (oh my) for an all-out battle at the Sandy Ridge airport. Heavy firepower with lots of room to stretch your legs. This artillery attack follows the simple formula that everything goes better with high-end explosives and military-grade hardware.
Despite the cheeky title, this Deathmatch ranks highly as a brutal gauntlet where you are instructed to "eliminate your enemy using your military training" and hardware which seems entirely appropriate for a crunch-time arms display on Pillbox Hill.
