New "GTA Online" user-created missions have been revealed by Rockstar Games for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of "Grand Theft Auto 5." According to a report from Gaming Bolt on July 24, the publisher highlighted a few jobs from the community that pay tribute to the previous installments of the series. The locations and objects are based on the missions from "GTA 3," "GTA" Vice City," "GTA: San Andreas," "GTA 4" and "GTA: Chinatown Wars."
The development team at Rockstar North encourages interested players to bookmark the tribute missions using the Rockstar Social Club. The detailed description of each job, as well as the shortcut links, can be found on the Rockstar Newswire page. The company also wants other creators to share their work if they are also building missions based on the previous releases from the franchise.
The series is among one of the most popular in the history of the gaming industry. However, it took off to new heights with the release of "GTA 5." The sequel broke many records, not just as a video game, but also as a entertainment product for the first several days of release. Rockstar Games last reported that more than 33 million copies have been sold worldwide.
"GTA 5" has a lot of longevity as well. Along with the robust single-player campaign, players can also participate in several cooperative and competitive objectives in "GTA Online." One of the potential features, multiplayer heists, has been delayed twice. The development team previously wanted to release the ability to tackle complicated cooperative missions shortly after the multiplayer mode launched. They then announced a spring window before ultimately delaying its addition indefinitely.
Along with multiplayer heists, Rockstar North is also planning to release "GTA 5" on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The new ports were confirmed at last month's Electronic Entertainment Expo with a trailer that showed off the enhanced graphics and added features to the new versions.
