Grand Theft Auto Online: An Online Sandbox World to commit GTA Together.

NOTE: This is the first post brought to us by Matt Sorg, new writer for Insert Coin to Begin.

It seems Rockstar isn’t only expanding heavily on the Single Player portion of their new GTA by adding 3 characters to switch from, but also taking a huge leap for their online portion of the game as well.

 

Announced yesterday over on Gamespot, Grand Theft Auto V’s online portion will be called Grand Theft Auto Online. By the looks of the trailer, GTAO is looking to be very ambitions.

In GTAV you will have a character wheel to switch between the three main protagonist, but there will be a fourth character to choose from. This fourth character will be your very own custom Multiplayer character and will give you access to the GTA Online portion of the game. When you arrive in Los Santos with your character, you will be open to do many activities, from doing jobs for npc’s to make some cash, spending that cash to customize your character, buy a home or garage and buying and upgrading vehicles and weapons, to partaking in many different activities such as golfing, skydiving, and robbing a bank with some buddies. You can pretty much do whatever you want, just like a normal GTA game. But it adds the ability to travel the world inhabited with up to 15 friends or enemies controlled by other players. You can join together and complete missions, have a war between two teams in the streets, or wander the city solo, sometimes spectating the havoc other’s are creating thou the TV or looking down at the streets from an apartment as cops chase a group of friends that just robbed a bank.

Not only can you free roam like a normal GTA game, you can also join in classic game modes such as Deathmatch or some other objective based game-types like Cops n’ Crooks similar from GTAIV’s Multiplayer. Even more interesting, you can customize and make your own races, setup a Deathmatch arena or put together your own missions, similar to the map editing in games like the Halo series.

Another part that seems interesting to me is that there will constantly be new content being added for you to discover, even hinting at raising the boundaries of Los Santos and allowing you to travel further, possible to allow travel to San Fierro or Las Venturas, hopefully even hopping on plan to fly to Vice City or Liberty City(a man can dream).

This actually reminds me of when GTA: San Andreas came out. Some modders released a multiplayer mod for the game to allow you to join a server and play with other people(amazingly, it’s still being updated). It was interesting but San Andreas always felt quite empty with the only life being the other players. In GTA IV they added a free roam mode which I think is very similar to the mod, except not quite as empty with pedestrians wandering the world like normal. There no real objective tho but some people tend to make up their own objectives, like the fine Lets Players over at Rooster Teeth here.

 

It’s important to note that GTA Online will not be available at the Sept. 17th launch of GTAV. They are currently planning on releasing Online on Oct. 1st with some other features such as the mission creator being released sometime later.

Are you excited to play a true GTA open world multiplayer experience with GTA Online? Have any stories about previous GTA Multiplayer experience? Let us know in the comments.
