Grand Theft Auto Online Revealed

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.

  • jayrockslife

    • R*Q

      Cheers! Great to hear you’re looking forward to your trip to Los Santos and Blaine County.

  • Good lord this GODLIKE!
    Day freakin 0, well done R* you just set the par higher for open-world games

  • mystikalguy

    This is definitely a must own. Day 1 all the way

  • That looks so amazing. I will definitely be spending time in multiplayer for sure!

  • thunderbear

    Most ambitious game ever by the looks of it. Really hope it lives up to the expectations. Can’t help but to wish there was a next-gen version coming… even if it’s with just a smoother framerate, higher resolution and some fancier shaders. Would love a PC version.

    • R*Q

      Hey there, we don’t have anything to share about the possibility of a next-gen or a PC platform release at this time and we are completely focused on delivering the best possible experience for the consoles people have right now.

  • I can’t wait till this comes out for sure. But why is the multiplayer not available untill October?

  • Looks AMAZING!!!! Cannot wait for this to come out!

    I’m also a little glad that this comes out a couple weeks after the main game so that I have some time to play that.

  • StormTimber

  • xFuzylilManPeach

  • CreepySketch

    • R*Q

      To clarify: Grand Theft Auto V will be released on September 17th. Access to Grand Theft Auto Online is free with every retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V and launches on October 1st.

  • wait I can buy a home form my multiplayer character!!!!!!! AWESOME!!!!!

  • online trophies?

  • Preordered mine!!! So now it does not come out until October? that sucks!!!

  • FOR*******

  • rockstar you did it again,this is a a awesome.

  • Yessssss, can’t wait!!!!!

  • Was reading about this game on Kotaku just there now before coming on this. I’m scared if I wont be able to play online. :( It all looks so awesome and mind blowing and I want to play this sooooo much!! On both GTA 4 and Red Dead Redemption I couldn’t play a single game due to strict connection. Your games are the only ones I can’t play online without getting kicked out. Tell me this game will work!! No-matter what the connection is like.. tell me it will work! Will be very very very disappointed in yas if it doesn’t. No other game has been having problems when playing online for me so yours shouldn’t be having them either.

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

    Does this mean it won’t be a Day 1 Digital title on the PSN? Or will GTA V and GTA Online be sold separately on the PSN?

  • AWESOME GAME, Must buy it.

  • Hurry up September! Can’t wait to unbox my collector’s edition

  • SONY, THIS IS WHAT PLAYSTATION HOME NEEDS TO BE!!!!! A large MMO world, with a dash of ‘The Division’ with it’s Person vs Ai, and Person vs. Person zones. Make it happen, Sony!

    Quote my comment if you agree and lets tell Sony that this is what we want PS Home to be next gen on the PS4.

  • CouchPotato976

    This looks incredible and I can’t wait. I have never pre-ordered a game before but I did that with this one. Does anyone know more about this process? Does this mean the store will be holding a copy for me? I would be pretty angry if I have already paid and I go to get mine and they are sold out.

  • I agree with you NYPUNK88 but I’m not going to quote it. :)

    Rockstar should make the PS4 Home!

  • nYcFrEeWiLL82

    I would hope this mode is also available for the PS4…but this is amazing news..and i wasnt surprised..kinda sucks that SAINTS ROW didnt think about making this move..but whatever..im still getting both games..its going to be a pretty bizzy fall for me :p

  • Sweet am getting it Now

  • Mind blown @ 2:23.

  • aaisacc-1911

    Shieeeeetttt <3333

  • i do not like that game any more, thats not gta as we know it, look at the smoke and the eksplosionens hool new game. And the way when its driving fast, dont look good… i almost hate 2 see the videos, because its almost makes me sad to see the videos. dont call it gta v, call it something els…

  • I’ve been playing GTA (III) since I was 8 years old and its only getting better and better (way better than the Springing Simian game Bouncing Bananas). I’m SO PUMPED. Just wish more of my buddies had PS3 this console generation. And a part of me is regretting going abroad in the fall… You win, R*.

  • Bicgoozgetten-69

    I just nuted up on my vita! I need this #%&! NOW

  • Hell yeah!

  • Day 1 digital, please!! :D

  • Will GTA V be a Day 1 Digital title on the PSN?

    Shouldn’t all top games be available digitally on PSN? This is 2013. Optical media is soooooo 2009.

  • snakeeyes211

    From what I’ve seen of GTA5 and GTA online can we just give it
    game of the year already ;-)

  • THANK GOD FOR PRE-SALE!!!! Finally back to the customization we all have missed since San Andreas! <3

  • FeelMyPower999

    Both GTA will look awesome, I can’t wait for their release. :D

  • AfroGamerNinja

    Will you release GTA Online as a standalone title eventually?

  • ElektroDragon

    Please sell millions, I bought a lot of TTWO stock recently. :D

  • ElektroDragon

    And of course my Special Edition is pre-ordered.

  • Man, I am so excited about this game. I already purchased my PS4 but I am not sure how much use it will get since I will be playing GTAV.

  • G27 or general wheel support would be nice.

  • FrozoneUSMC

    Dear Rockstar,
