The next time you boot up Grand Theft Auto V, you will be asked to download a title update that will allow you to design your own online multiplayer deathmatches and races to share and play with others. Players will be able create and customize jobs for the Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Race, GTA Race and Rally Race modes using some of the same tools that Rocktar Games developer utilize.

Those interested in trying out the beta will only need to download the free update to GTA V and have their Xbox LIVE Gamertag or PSN account linked to a Social Club account. Once in-game, you'll see a Creator tab option available on the pause screen where you can check out a tutorial or just start creating and/or editing an a deathmatch or race.

Deathmatches can be set anywhere in Los Santos with the option to create Team Start Points and Spawn Points plus weapons and vehicles that will be available to players. Weapons and vehicles can be customized as well and new props can be added to the map so that you can create your own special variant.

Creating races works a little differently as you'll have to successfully create and publish a Land Race before you gain access to do the same for Sea and Air Races. However, the Race Creator will you set the Race Type (Race, GTA Race, Rally Race) and Route Type (Laps or Point to Point), number of players, starting grid size, vehicle class and more. You can also use props to create new jumps and obstacles all over Los Santos.

Custom created Deathmatches and Races will can be shared with others on the Rockstar Social Club and Rockstar will mark and promote the best as "Rockstar Verified."
