Grand Theft Auto Online Revealed

R*Q's Avatar + Posted by R*Q on Aug 15, 2013 //

Grand Theft Auto Online is a dynamic and persistent online world for 16 players that begins by sharing gameplay features, geography and mechanics with Grand Theft Auto V, but will continue to expand and evolve after its launch with new content created by Rockstar Games and the Grand Theft Auto community. Grand Theft Auto Online takes the fundamental Grand Theft Auto concepts of freedom, ambient activity and mission-based gameplay and makes them available to multiple players in an incredibly detailed and responsive online world.

In Grand Theft Auto Online, players have the freedom to explore alone or with friends, work cooperatively to complete missions, band together to participate in activities and ambient events, or compete in traditional game modes with the entire community, all with the personality and refined mechanics of Grand Theft Auto V.

Players can invest in their character through customizing their appearance, improving their stats, owning customized vehicles, purchasing personal property, and taking part in missions, jobs and activities to earn reputation and cash to open up new opportunities to rise through the criminal ranks. The world of Grand Theft Auto Online will constantly grow and change as new content is added, creating the first ever persistent and dynamic Grand Theft Auto game world.

Access to Grand Theft Auto Online is free with every retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V and launches on October 1st.

I can’t wait to play this but we must all know why you couldn’t develop a multiplayer experience that plays like some of the better versions of GTA:SA Multiplayer (modded on PC)?

It supported 200 players per server, for one, and had all the look and feel of what a true GTA:MMO would be. You had cops, crooks, dealers and “normal” all playing in their own way…

Each server was different because the entire thing was entirely modded and customizable by the server admin (who needed to have some experience programming). I find it hard to believe that someone at Rockstar didn’t see that stuff and figure out a way to make it right.. A GTA:MMO, if done correctly, would be more popular than WoW (because.. *Popular* non-virgins might play it).

Rockstar you got to be kidding right? This is super no Ultimate Awesome Beyond anything you ever did before and i was so mind blow when i saw the video just now.

GTA Online rules with mighty Iron Fist then any other online game i played ever. I’m buying GTAV 100% on day one of its release date now. Thanks for creating great games these’s pass years for gamer’s. :)

PS: I hope GTAV will make it cross onto PS4 as well when PS4 is release; plan to buy it on PS4 then PS3 if not then PS3 then.

+ Ghostwize on August 15th, 2013 at 9:53 am said:

This will be amazing.

If there isn’t a cougar hunting mini-game though, I will see that as a severely missed opportunity. I don’t mean the cat. Some normal hunting would be good too though. :D


64

+ djgal on August 15th, 2013 at 9:55 am said:

This, quite simply, looks like the best game ever made! And it’s made in Bonnie Scotland, even better :) I’ll be buying on the first day, well done Rockstar!

Does anybody know anything about a zombie mode, either a cheat in singleplayer (or alternate mode) or in multiplayer. I would love to have a zombie mode for those on XBOX and PS3, I’d even buy a DLC for it. If it was like banding survivors together to survive the zombie apocalypse and then like completing missions gathering supplies and investigating certain areas. For example.
Mission: Grove St. (if that is a street in the game)
Description: Britney wants to know how it is over on Grove Street and to try and scavenge supplies over there if it’s not too risky.
Difficulty: Medium
So when you go on this mission you would visit Grove Street and search houses or cars etc. for supplies and try to clear out zombies if possible.

It feels like the online play will actually be able to be played co-op and maybe everyone wont just run and gun EVERYTHING! The crews look awesome and the property purchase system is epic. RockStar your really outdid yourself!!

This game looks even more amazing. I have a couple of questions
Can we customize our apartments?
Content creator for death match looks like yet another amazing addition. Which also reinforces my first question.

+ Hellion83 on August 15th, 2013 at 11:45 am said:

Looks pretty boring in my opinion. We’ve seen all this before and I hate to say it but the combat system looks bland. Looking forward more to Saint’s Row 4.

+ Skyyplum on August 15th, 2013 at 1:00 pm said:

A little confused. I see R* said GTA Online will be available for all who buy V which I figured but then said it wouldn’t launch till Oct. 1 Does this mean we won’t be able to play online till October 1st even if we pick up our game on September 17th?
