Rockstar Games recently sent out word that an all-new patch was on the way for Grand Theft Auto, and by association, GTA Online, which would add long-awaited content creation tools to craft your own custom missions in modes like Deathmatch, GTA Race, Race, Team Deathmatch and Rally Race, and wouldn’t you know it? Patch version 1.07 is out right now on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Called the ‘Deathmatch and Race Creators Beta,’ the set of tools include a series of tutorials to help you start creating new missions (which Rockstar highly recommends you watch), but you can read through a few brief descriptions of what’s possible with the tools at the official announcement post over here.

If you’ve forgotten your experience with Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar has also released a brand new TV advert for the game touting its review scores and publication reactions earlier this year:
