The lights are on
If you've been wondering how Rockstar will evolve online play for Grand Theft Auto V, your curiosity will be satisfied shortly. On Thursday, August 15, expect a new video on the connected modes the title will offer.
Grand Theft Auto IV offered 15 different types of online play, including competitive Deathmatch, objective-based team modes, competitive carjacking, and a number of co-operative choices. Whether Grand Theft Auto V will improve the formula or take the safe path is something we'll learn on Thursday. No specific time has been disclosed, but Rockstar will be showing the video here.

Our TakeGrand Theft Auto IV's multiplayer modes got a lot of buzz prior to launch, but I don't recall anyone raving about them once the game hit retail. There's room for great open-world multiplayer modes (just look at Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption), and it will be interesting to see what Rockstar has learned since GTA IV's release in 2008.

AWW YEAHH!!! I am so excited for this game!
GTA IV has the best multiplayer ever! This is gonna be some sick stuff, my hype pants have been raised past my ribs!
Awesome, cant wait
Great, now I'll want the game even more and the next month will really drag by.
LOL the master race will drool.
Idk about you but me and my friends really enjoyed GTA 4's multiplayer. We still play it from time to time.
Can't wait about the formal Multiplayer reveal! I hope they include some cool customization options and many cool things to do in free roaming mode. Personally I didn't played MP on GTA IV that much because the free roaming bit is not that great.
just bring back free roam and let us do that house thing we saw in the teaser. someone was in a house. i want a house
I just finished playing GTA 4 on my PS3 and it looks like crap when compared to the PC version. Grand Theft Auto 5 should have been ported over to the next generation of consoles instead of this generation, its understandable that the dev kits weren't even fully made when the work on the game was already done but still we can hope for a High resolution non watered down version of it being released.
One thing you can't do with Rockstar is dismiss their ideas right out of the gate. They've done way too many things right.
I don't play GTA for multiplayer. As long as it doesn't take away from the rest of the game, it's ok.
