GTA Online is finally released and it is set to be one the biggest and best multiplayer experiences of all time – but can it live up to the hype.
GTA V Update Adds GTA Online
Gta Online will take place a few months before the events in Grand Theft Auto V’s main single player campaign.
By downloading a small update through your Xbox 360 or Playstation you should be able to unlock GTA Vs multiplayer option that you could previously see through the menu and in-game phone.
Rockstar have warned of teething problems due to high demand and massive popularity and have been frantically buying up extra servers to handle the situation.
GTA Online Will Have Safe Zones To Prevent Griefing
Rockstar have set house party invitations up in a way that is designed to promote a more friendly, social side of the game which means players won’t be able to attack, shoot or rob each other when invited to a property.
This should stop any worrying about who to invite around.
“If someone invites you into their property, then it is considered a friendly visit and you will not be able to shoot up their place or steal their cars from their garage,” Rockstar explained.
“By the way, in any given lobby, if you and another player own the same piece of property, you will each be able to enter your own personal instance of that property at any given time,” Rockstar continued. “You will also be able to enter each other’s instance of that property if you exchange and accept an invite. This way, multiple instances of ownership of the same property within a lobby can co-exist.”
Rockstar Calm Microtransaction Fears For GTA Online
For anyone worried that those rich enough to spend their spare money on in game money will have an unfair advantage – Rockstar have moved to quell those fears.
All player wills have to rank up like with Reputation Points in order to get access to purchase some of the higher end items .
They have also explained that gaining money and points will actually be fun and not a “grind” like so many others of a similar ilk.
” No one can begin GTA Online and simply spend a lot of money out of the gate to get a leg up. You will have to earn your stripes and play to unlock access to the aspirational clothes, guns and other items.
“Please also remember that in GTA Online, hustling to afford the finer things by earning GTA$ doing robberies, stick-ups, winning races and other profitable activities is a fun gameplay experience rather than ever being a ‘grind’.”
After all the waiting and all the talking GTA Online is finally here. Be sure to let us know what you think!
