    A new collection of team-based modes called Capture arrives for GTA Online today, as part of a free update.

    “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 the Rockstar Newswire.

    “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. These new Jobs are accessible in Freemode and spread across the four different modes.”

    You can find descriptions of each of the modes, along with previews of a few of Rockstar’s “faves” below. The automatic update also adds fixes and dynamic tuning updates, full details of which can be found through here.

    Increased cash payouts for losing teams in Last Team standing and Team Deathmatch.
    • Increased the cash and RP rewards for Races with multiple laps.
    • Cash payouts for Parachuting now take points scored into account.
    • Improved spawning for Deathmatches where the spawn points were previously very far apart.
    • Improved support for Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Russian in the Creator.
    • Calling the mechanic now shows you if a vehicle on the list is destroyed or impounded.
    • Team balancing does a better job of putting friends and crew members together.
    • BETA Crew Head to Head matches are now available to play. To initiate a Crew Head to Head, you'll need to create a Playlist that does not contain Vehicle Deathmatches, Survivals or any Jobs that require more than 2 teams. From there, go into My Playlists and you'll see a prompt for Head to Head (BETA). This will launch the lobby and you'll be able to invite other players from your Crew, Friend's Crews or Skill Matched Crews.
    • Player blips no longer remain red on Missions when the player has a Bounty.
    • Players who end a Race as DNF are now awarded cash relevant to the amount of checkpoints they passed through during the course of the Race.
    • Players who race solo now earn cash. Previously, zero cash was awarded for a solo race.
    • Last Team Standing, Capture and Missions are separated out in the Create Playlist menu.
    • Small deduction to the amount of cash the winners of Races, Parachuting and Last Team Standing matches receive in order to increase payouts for all other participants.
    • Masks are now removed during Races where a helmet is required and are also removed by default when a player uses the Smoking animation.
    • The Purchase All Ammo option now charges the full value of filling all player held weapons with ammo.
    • Fixes an issue where GTA Online players could reach North Yankton.
    • Fixes a rare issue where characters could be lost if the player attempted to join GTA Online when disconnected from the Network.
    • Fixes for various duplicate vehicle exploits.
    • Fixes issues when using the Character Select from inside the Creator.
    • Fixes issues with ammo vanishing after testing a Deathmatch in the Creator.
    • Fixes exploits of the Fastest Lap bonus.
    • Glasses from the Beach Bum update now appear in the inventory menu.
    • Players in Tanks now have more protection from other players attempting to deliberately give them a Bad Sport rating.
    • Bad Sport timers now read properly and show the correct time left in the Bad Sport lobby instead of “00d00h00m”


    RAID

    In 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.

    "Beachin"

    Legal highs and bad t-shirts aren't the only things being pushed on Vespucci Beach. Four factions raid each other's stashes for control of the area's 'tourist trade'. Take product back to your spot and it's yours.

    "Wargames"

    Like any military operation, when things kick off at Fort Zancudo Air Base, they escalate pretty quickly. Teams stockpiling weapons to sell on the black market raid each other's bases at either end of the facility. If they get the goods back, they're banked. Nothing's off limits to be used here, including the fighter jets.


    HOLD

    When playing 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.

    "Block Party"

    Gang violence escalates in Chamberlain Hills, as block fights block at close quarters. Four factions with two packages each try to raid each other and protect their own stuff. If they get someone else's product back to their turf, they'll have to protect it.


    GTA

    As the ubiquitous acronym might suggest, 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.

    "My Maibatsu"

    Four East Los car thief outfits compete to get hold of a shipment of Sanchez dirt bikes, and store them back at their bases, while preventing the other teams from doing the same. First place to look would be the Maibatsu Factory.

    "Field of Screams"

    A tractor shortage in Grapeseed leads to farmyard chaos. It's harvest time, and two rival gangs compete to bring a Fieldmaster tractor back to their bases. Farming is a deadly serious business in Blaine County.


    CONTEND

    In 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.

    "Salty ******"

    Dog walkers and surfing talent agents look out - two import operations at either end of Chumash Beach are fighting over a shipment that's landed on the pier. Any product they can get to their spot in the sand is theirs to keep.

    Does this 1.08 patch mean a ban-wave and a patch for the Json tuneables?

    Does this get rid of the glitched collectors edition cars.
