GTA V Multiplayer Online?

GTA V Online

Want to form a gang or car crew? Ever thought about recruiting friends and expanding territory? Well, you can – virtually. On Oct. 1, 2013 GTA V will be launching a multiplayer component, which means gamers will be able to interact with as many as 32 other online players for free.

The multiplayer component is imperative in the world of gaming in expansive, real-world gaming. Imagine driving down the coast – any coast – of Los Santos and driving past a friend who is heading in the opposite direction, who might be in the midst of completing a mission or just exploring. The GTA V multiplayer environment will deliver a virtual world of crews, which will add to the gaming experience.

Online gamers will be able to join crews or recruit crews with other online players. All crews will have a chain of command with leaders, commissioners, lieutenants, and hired thugs. Crews can have online competitions with several modes, which include Gang Wars and Team Deathmatch (TDM).

In 2008 Rockstar introduced a multiplayer online mode called Social Club, which was used in games such as Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. Social Club is a well-received social medium for online gamers also available in GTA V.

Online groups and individuals are able to enjoy GTA online activities such as creating character backgrounds, customize characters, rob a convenience store with friends, microphone capabilities for online situations, car racing, play golf or tennis games with multiple players, purchasing safe houses, flying in an airplane with friends, rob stores with friends, and the list goes on and on.

Missions are crazy with several modes, such as Cops and Crooks mode (CnC mode), which supports up to 32 players. Cop modes are interesting as there are several side missions, such as checking license plates with a police scanner and making arrests for stolen vehicles. Players with a lower rank will be assigned to do low-level missions, also known as fetch quests. On-the-fly missions can be launched with little to no organization. With multiplayers such a feat can be possible, and let’s face it, it’s just fun. Such a mission assigns each member n a multiplayer group a part in a robbery or heist, which will give a better chance of making off with a huge booty.

Reputation is important in GTA V as reputations are imperative for unlocking new missions and other goodies. As a reputation points (RPs) accumulate, players will be able to use favors from several non- characters (NPCs).

GTA V continues to amaze and continues to evolve into a dynamic experience for mature gamers, who continually support the gaming community. Much of what Rockstar continues is the future of social mediums – an alternative way to interact with like-minded individuals who choose to participate in their entertainment activities rather than watch with a remote controller. The beauty of the world of online gaming is the multiplayers are able to interact with one another in a vast, open-world environment and experience an ever-evolving paradise of virtual reality.

    Want to join a crew that has already made a name for itself?

    Hey, we’re the X902 Clan, we’ve actually been around for over 2 years now and our clan website has over 300 registered members. Our GTA V crew can only hold 100, but when it fills up I can easily make another one and link them.

    Our clan site is http://www.X902Clan.com, all you have to do is visit our site then click the link that says GTA V crew.

    You could always just go to the social club site and search us [X902 Clan] there, but I ask that you use the link on our website because then you can have a quick look at just how committed we are as a clan and it also gives you an opportunity to check out our clan forums and other social intranets while you’re there.

    By visiting our site first it also gives me a chance to track how much traffic we’re actually getting on our crew page.

    Right now on our crew page we’re having a contest to see who can get the funniest picture as Trevor so after you join submit the funniest one you can find!

    @icharlieee: GTA Online is said to be separate from the single player mode, which means you will need to create a new character for GTA Online; however, it is not yet confirmed if items purchased in single-player mode can be transfered to GTA Online or not.

      No you wont be able to take anything from the singleplayer mode of the game into multiplayer because that would make the point of GTA Online useless and you wont have to earn anything, but the only thing I know that you unlock in singleplayer and it goes over to multiplayer is if you collect all spaceship parts you unlock the UFO vehicle for multiplayer and if anyone is looking for a crew to have a good time, do hiests and build up your ranks then join my crew: http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/ace_playerz
