Well, it’s here. The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Remember when Rockstar revealed the Grand Theft Auto V gameplay trailer and promised a trailer for Grand Theft Auto Online? The time has come, and here it is.
Rockstar gave us some detail over at the GTA5 Site.
“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 5, 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 5.
“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.”
Personally, I think Grand Theft Auto Online looks amazing. Players can plan heists, improve their characters, create custom races, rob banks, steal money, deposit money in banks or just jump of a cliff with a bunch of other guys and enjoy the view. It’s basically the regular Grand Theft Auto V, except with other games which makes it more fun. Since new content will be added often, I doubt we’ll grow tired of it any time soon.
Grand Theft Auto Online will be available with all copies of Grand Theft Auto V. It’s servers will launch on October 1st.
