Two New Grand Theft Auto Games For the Price of One
Grand Theft Auto Online is so much more than we could ever hope to expect from the multiplayer component of a game as large as Grand Theft Auto V is. GTA Online is a completely separate game from GTA V, a living, breathing entity that shares the map, engine and polish of GTA V, but is much more than a co-op mode.
GTA Online is a second, full-length campaign with new and unforgettable characters. It’s a separate full game, completely voiced and animated with story-driven multiplayer. In true Grand Theft Auto style, however, if you’re not so enchanted with a rigid, structured story you can go anywhere and do anything with anyone in the game world; form an online gang and steal from every bank, compete in races and deathmatches all over the map, or become a lone wolf and become the most-wanted enemy among every player you meet. One interesting suggestion from the trailer was a freeform event in which a group of players rode their dirtbikes to the top of a peak in the Los Santos hills before accelerating off the cliff to gain enough momentum to parachute down to land.
If you’re afraid things might become stagnant after completing the main scenario, worry not. GTA Online comes with a content creation engine in which players can create their own races, deathmatch configurations, or entire scenarios for others to play and share their own. Grand Theft Auto Online is the game we’ve been waiting to play, the game that never ends.
GTA Online will launch on October 1, 2013
Grand Theft Auto Online comes with every purchase of Grand Theft Auto V. GTA V will launch on September 17, 2013 and GTA Online will launch two weeks later on October 1, 2013.
