Grand Theft Auto V users will soon be getting several new features for making their own movies using the title’s in-game Rockstar Editor tools. In addition to introducing new features to the game’s video editing suite, The Inquisitr also reported last week that the Rockstar Editor has been confirmed to be added to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of GTA V with the next big title update.
Offering more details on the upcoming major patch via the official Rockstar Newswire blog, the developer announced on Monday that the update will go live in September. In addition to bringing the editor to current-gen consoles, next month’s update is also adding new options to the editor to give players greater control over directing their own GTA V fan films.
“Next month, the Rockstar Editor officially makes its way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles as part of the next downloadable update for Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online. This update will also bring with it some new features for the Rockstar Editor that will be available for all three platforms including PC, along with some exciting new gameplay for GTA Online Freemode that we’ll be sharing more about in the coming weeks.”
The upcoming content patch for Grand Theft Auto V will give players the ability to enter Director Mode while using the Rockstar Editor. This new mode will give players access to plenty of new tools, such as the ability to spawn vehicles and affect the time of day. Furthermore, the update will add more fonts as well as let gamers copy and paste their own audio using custom audio markers.
Speaking of improved audio features, September’s GTA V title update will also give players access to a larger selection of tracks to use in their fan films. Rockstar Games announced on their official Twitter account that next month’s patch will feature a larger audio library full of new audio samples. Players will also be given the ability to mix various audio cues to create new sound effects.

All of the changes to the Rockstar Editor will also be available on the PC edition of Grand Theft Auto V. Gamers can expect to see additional new features added to the editing tools in the future. According to Rockstar Games, plenty of additional changes are in store for later updates.
While the Rockstar Editor while finally be on all current-gen platforms with the next patch, those still playing on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of GTA V won’t be receiving the update. Unfortunately, the last-gen consoles simply can’t run the editor due to hardware issues.
Are you a console gamer who has been waiting for a chance to try out GTA V‘s Rockstar Editor after the tools were introduced with the game’s PC launch?
