Rockstar has finally pulled back the curtain on Grand Theft Auto Online. Earlier today, a video released shows off just some of the many things you and up to 15 of your friends can do in this persistent world that will always be evolving.
Here are some details you need to know right off the bat. Rockstar says it will be a dynamic and persistent online world for you and up to 15 of your closest buddies. In this standalone online portion (Rockstar says all with retail copies of GTAV will have access), you will be able to go on your own or team up with friends to do many of the activities that you will do in GTAV proper. This includes doing heists with friends, playing a round of golf, taking part in an off-road race, the options seem endless. There will also be a big part of character customization, vehicle customization and more. Wanna buy some real estate once you earn enough cred and money? Do it!
This is just the tip of the iceberg for what Rockstar has planned as they will be releasing content on a regular basis. This will include more missions, characters, races, etc. There is also a editor for players so they can map out custom races, deathmatch games, and more.
I can’t be more excited to play GTAV and GTA Online, from what is shown in the video and the ambition that Rockstar has with their vision just completely blows my mind. The one drawback? GTA Online will not be available day one with GTAV out of box, you’ll have to wait another couple of weeks on October 1st, when it will be released to the masses.
