Grand Theft Auto Online

Grand Theft Auto Online will be the official name given to the multiplayer portion of GTA 5Rockstar Games revealed details about the multiplayer mode in a recent Q&A session on their website.

When asked about information regarding the GTA 5 multiplayer and when something would be announced, Rockstar replied, “Expect to hear some first details soon – it’s called Grand Theft Auto Online and we’re very excited to unveil it for you sometime this summer.”

A reveal window of the summer might also coincide with Rockstar’s claims that the first official gameplay video of GTA 5 would be coming soon.

Grand Theft Auto Online will also be using new anti-cheating methods to ensure all players’ online experience remains fair. Ever since the release of Grand Theft Auto 4, Rockstar has continuously evolved their online experiences with better methods of detecting hacked or modded servers. The developer says they have spent a great deal of time to make Grand Theft Auto Online an incredible experience and making sure the playing field is level is a part of that deal.

Xbox 360 players will not be required to change discs when transitioning from GTA 5′s single player to Grand Theft Auto Online. The first disc is used for a mandatory game install. After the install, both single and multiplayer are available on the second disc.

Though nothing else about Grand Theft Auto Online was discussed in the Q&A, Rockstar did respond to a few questions in the comments section of the article. While most questions about the online mode were answered with the expected “more info coming soon” response, one user asked if Grand Theft Auto Online would be similar to GTA 4′s multiplayer or different. “Very different,” responded Rockstar.

GTA 4′s multiplayer included Deathmatch modes, racing games and more within the confines of Liberty City. To find out more about how the GTA 4 multiplayer worked, click here.

If Rockstar is planning something very different for Grand Theft Auto Online what could it be? Can players expect story-driven missions or quests? Will they be able to go on heists with friends? Speculation is all we have until Rockstar breaks the silence.
