Rockstar Games has detailed a substantial update for Grand Theft Auto 5's GTA Online which will introduce events and challenges into Freemode, the open world free-for-all that acts as the enormous hub for other multiplayer games.

An event can kick off at any time in Freemode and its possible to customise what can and can not happen in your game session. These events and challenges include Penned In – which tasks players with staying inside a rapidly shrinking dome without being caught outside, and Kill List, which tasks players with entering a specific vehicle and surviving waves of enemies.

The update will also bring the Rockstar Editor video creation suite to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, alongside Director Mode. The editor launched alongside the PC version of GTA 5 earlier this year and has proven incredibly popular.

Also included are two brand new Adversary Modes: Hunting Pack and Cross The Line. the former makes players "part of a team tasked to deliver a priority vehicle rigged to explode if it drops below a minimum speed, while your opponents race, ram and batter to take it down." (Via Rockstar Newswire) Cross The Line meanwhile is "where heavily-armed squads face off across a neutral zone – with the goal of having all team members strategically penetrate their opponents territory to claim victory."

Here's Rockstar's description of all the new Freemode challenges and events.

A trailer was also released, which you can watch below.
