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.
