Grand Theft Auto V

Get To Know Your Online Neighbors

Last month, Rockstar released a trailer for the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V, which featured loads of gameplay and breakdowns of how various systems as diverse as deep-sea diving and real-estate investment work within the game. It ended with a tease to the game's multiplayer mode, which showed a character watching street-level mayhem from the safety of a high-rise, ending with another player blasting past the apartment in a military jet. This morning, Rockstar has released a new trailer focused on Grand Theft Auto Online.

The new clip provides insight on how the game's online multiplayer has been expanded since Grand Theft Auto IV. Players can choose to dive online alone and see what happens, or join up with friends to form crews. Crews can take on heist and robbery missions together. The money that's earned can then be used to purchase character customizations, garages, vehicles, and even an apartment. If you're not feeling up for illicit activities, the clip shows slightly less aggressive diversions such as arm wrestling, golf, tennis, and parachuting. It's GTA, after all, so the parachuting highlighted in the video takes place after a character ramps his dirt bike off a cliff.

Rockstar says they will be providing post-launch support for online, including new missions and activities. In the meantime, players will be able to use Grand Theft Auto Online's content-creation tools to design races and customize deathmatches. Once built, these can then be shared with the GTA community.

Grand Theft Auto V is set to release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Sept. 17. Grand Theft Auto Online will launch a few weeks after that.

  • *Fap Fap Fap Fap* !!
  • this is simply amazing. i hope they manage to incorporate a really good anti-cheating mechanism to prevent cheaters/modders from ruining the online experience.
  • It sucks we have to wait until October 1 to play Online.
  • This game is going to be amazing. I cannot wait! Hopefully they do something about those cheaters/modders. 33 days!

    (Edit) More better than the CODGhost's Multiplayer showing
  • I thought BioShock 2's online mode would finally pull me in to actually, consistently doing some online play. It didn't. This just might.
  • GTA V online sounds like it will be a complete blast.
  • Thing that I liked the most was that you can have your own apartment. The “good thing” about waiting 2 weeks for the online is that I can actually have a chance to finish the story on GTA V( I never finish the story in gta iv because my friend keep always inviting me to play mp)
  • OMG!!!!

  • OMG!!!!

  • Multiplayer subs confirmed!!! RED OCTOBER STANDING BY...
  • My goodness. It's beautiful. Not till Oct 1st? no problem. Not too long to wait. Plus I'll be busy enjoying the hell out of single player.

  • This game is going to suck.
  • Sounds interesting. I might try it.

  • Shooting while you parachute! Sweet! Can't wait to play this game. MP looks badass too.

  • Now the game just screams "PC Port"

  • Move over 'The Last of Us,' there's a new contender for game of the generation.
  • That multiplayer looks 10x better than GTA IV's multiplayer. R* has learned a whole lot this gen, I can't wait to see what they'll do next gen.

  • I wish all of that character customization could be in the single player! Looks awesome!
  • this is gong to be so !@#$ amazing

  • Got damn, I cannot wait for this.
