Rockstar Unveils Grand Theft Auto Online
Rockstar has unveiled the expansive and vast mulitplayer mode for Grand Theft Auto V in the most recent gameplay trailer.
When we witnessed the last gameplay trailer for GTA V, we expected something special with the multiplayer reveal trailer. And wow, those expectations were delivered. As we can see from the trailer below, in Grand Theft Auto Online you can go off on your own, or team up and take on a bank heist. Basically, it looks like everything we wanted from the free roam mode of GTA IV, but more. Much more.
“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,” Rockstar said. “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.”
GTA V will include Grand Theft Auto Online in every retail copy. However, while the game will be released on September 17, GTA Online will not go live until October 1. But this should be plenty of time to get the campaign out of the way while building expectations to what may become every GTA fan’s favorite time vampire.
