GTA 5 update brings capture the flag to Grand Theft Auto Online

GTA Online, the online multiplayer mode for Grand Theft Auto , has received a free update on Xbox 360 and PS3 which brings a collection of team-based modes. 

"With 20 new Jobs across four unique modes, this GTA twist on classic capture the flag style confrontations brings a whole new level of adversarial action to the world of Los Santos and Blaine County," explains Rockstar. "Strategy plays a huge role as you run decoys, set traps and place obstacles to ensure your enemies don’t get close to your goods."

GTA Online's Capture mode is playable across four different game types, all of which are detailed below, courtesy of Rockstar.

Raid: "You'll have to fight your way into your opponents' base and steal a package, then deliver it back to your base to score points. Reach the target score, or deliver more packages than your opponents do in the allotted time to win the match."

Hold: "Teams must collect and store as many packages as possible in their base. Packages can either be found on the map, or stolen from the opposing team’s bases. Reach the target score, or hold the most packages when the time runs out, to win."

GTA: "GTA mode tasks players with stealing target vehicles located all around the map, before bringing them back to their respective bases. Each team must fight to steal more vehicles in the allotted time than their opponents."

Contend: "There's only one package, situated in the middle of the map. Teams must fight to bring this package back to their respective bases, and once the package is captured it respawns in the middle of the map and is up for grabs again."

In addition to the new mode, today's update also brings a slew of other fixes to GTA Online.
