    Default GTA Online Discussion

    This is the Official GTA Online Discussion Thread which will be the home for any official news, reviews, information or discussions on anything GTA Online.



    What is GTA Online?

    Grand Theft Auto Online is a dynamic and persistent online world for 16 players that begins by sharing gameplay features, geography and mechanics with Grand Theft Auto V, but will continue to expand and evolve after its launch with new content created by Rockstar Games and the Grand Theft Auto community.

    How do I get GTA Online?

    01-Oct-2013 - Update - The title update for GTA 5, which will activate the multiplayer component, will be available October 1, 9pm Eastern Australian time.
    Access to Grand Theft Auto Online is free with every retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V.

    When will GTA Online be available?

    30-Sep-2013 - Update - Grand Theft Auto Online Launches in Australia on October 2
    GTA Online will be available 2 weeks after the launch of GTAV; the date is currently set for October 1st.

    How do I avoid losing my charcter when Rockstar are having server issues?

    This info comes from Rockstar Support, courtesy of SuperlapS15:

    Note: When the Rockstar Cloud Services are unavailable, you are given the option to still play online on disc-based content (rather than R* Cloud content). You are asked to confirm before entering Multiplayer whether you would like to play on a temporary character, without the ability to save. If you confirm this option, please note that none of your old characters will be available for that play session, and the temporary character you create will not be saved. If you want to make sure the characters you create are saved, you should not proceed into GTA Online when the R* Cloud Servers are unavailable. Even if the services come back up while you are playing on a temporary character, that temporary character will not save -- you would need to return to Single Player and re-enter GTA Online to load your non-temporary characters and resume playing with the ability to save progress.

    Note: When exiting GTA Online, please pause the game and choose to return to Single Player. This will trigger a save and ensure that progress since the last auto-save is recorded. If you purchase items and immediately power the console off or exit through console system menus, those items may not be saved.
    Source

    Note that there seems to be a bug (supposedly fixed in 1.02, but still being reported) where temporary characters will overwrite existing ones. If you get the message that cloud servers are not available, the safest course of action is not to play multiplayer until they are back online.

    GTA Online Overview

    Grand Theft Auto Online is a dynamic and persistent online world for 16 players that begins by sharing gameplay features, geography and mechanics with Grand Theft Auto V, but will continue to expand and evolve after its launch with new content created by Rockstar Games and the Grand Theft Auto community. Grand Theft Auto Online takes the fundamental Grand Theft Auto concepts of freedom, ambient activity and mission-based gameplay and makes them available to multiple players in an incredibly detailed and responsive online world.

    In Grand Theft Auto Online, players have the freedom to explore alone or with friends, work cooperatively to complete missions, band together to participate in activities and ambient events, or compete in traditional game modes with the entire community, all with the personality and refined mechanics of Grand Theft Auto V.

    Players can invest in their character through customizing their appearance, improving their stats, owning customized vehicles, purchasing personal property, and taking part in missions, jobs and activities to earn reputation and cash to open up new opportunities to rise through the criminal ranks. The world of Grand Theft Auto Online will constantly grow and change as new content is added, creating the first ever persistent and dynamic Grand Theft Auto game world.

    Access to Grand Theft Auto Online is free with every retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V and launches on October 1st

    GTA V Online (use of Crew tags) - added 24/3/15

    The traditional use of AUF tag rule is relaxed on crew tags in GTAV, thus that the interchange of crews is allowed discretionally.
    However members are expected to rep AUF tags when playing with other AUFers, including on AUF organised nights.

    • This crew tag exception applies ONLY to Grand Theft Auto Online
    • If members are found to abuse or take advantage of this allowance, they risk expulsion from AUF and removal of this privilege for everyone else.
    • Madmin reserves the right to modify or terminate this rule at any time.

    I'd recommend you use Safari to browse the forums on the iPad then, at least until they allow BBCode settings on TapatalkHD or release a new plug-in that supports authentication from older clients.

    safari is actually worse, can't see the picture either..



    clicking the little blue box does nothing.

    it really means the only option is to browse on a computer or do what I do, stick with the ipad and accept much of this site is missing.

    Looks good Lt.

    I don't have high hopes for this day one, I predict this having the same problems all MMOs have on the first day, which is a gross miscalculation in how many people will want to access the servers at the same time. I'd say the servers will either crash like Diablo 3 or be incredibly laggy for at least the first and maybe second day.

    In the screenshot you're seeing everything you're meant to. Can you adjust zoom/text size in Safari on the iPad to help with the layout slightly (text wrap and borders)?

    Doesn't bother me one bit. There should be plenty of money available from the amount of missions we can do.

    Also, apparently the most expensive property will be $400,000 but weapons, weapon mods, vehicles and car mods will be more expensive online so they're out of reach when you first start playing.

    There will be a lot of cash coming our way without needing to pay real money for it.

    Article - Some More Details on Grand Theft Auto Online - By Rockstar


    Interesting Points:

    The Launch of Grand Theft Auto Online:
    From launch, up to 16 players can enter the world together to partake in everything from:

    Open-World Crime and Chaos: Go on your own or round up your friends to explore the open world together – catch a movie, go mountain biking, hit the shooting range and much more. Want to test the law? Knock over a convenience store, take down a gang or rob an armored truck for easy cash and Reputation.

    Jobs: Los Santos and Blaine County are ripe with opportunity for the ambitious and criminal minded. Take on Missions and an array of other Jobs as a lone wolf, team up with your Crew or join fellow mercenaries and degenerates to pull off a wide range of robberies and illicit activities together.

    Races: Everything from classic street competition and off-road tracks to boat racing on the open ocean, or take to the skies in aerial events. Jump into the madness of a GTA Race, or try out a brand new race type, Rally, where driver and co-pilot work together to navigate treacherous courses at high speeds

    Sports: Join your friends / any random stranger for a game of tennis, a round of golf or go base jumping and more, all for cash and Reputation.


    They also mention that all content updates will be free... no mention if they will release DLC for a price...

    These are the free updates they have planned for the first few weeks after GTA Online is released. Loving it!


    The Content Creator: The Content Creator will launch with tools to tailor and publish your own Deathmatches & Races.

    The Beach Bum Pack: Featuring 4 new amazing beach fun vehicles, over 300 new items of incredible down tempo leisure wear and 2 new but not remotely relaxing weapons.

    Capture the Flag: GTA Online’s take on the classic CTF mode including the ability to make your own using The Content Creator.

    Heists: This update will introduce full-on cooperative Heist missions that will require careful planning, teamwork and sharp execution – along with the Heist Planning Board for your apartment.

    CTF sounds fun, wonder if you can take it to the sky or under water.

    Heists of course are the main attraction, From what I hear they are relatively small in number in the main game, online will make up for that.

    If you can betray your team mates it would be interesting, perhaps even allow players to take the role of the Police to catch the offenders and deal out the sweet harsh punishment.

    So many possibilities for mayhem and fun, I look forward to being that guy who fucks up the heists by flipping the getaway vehicle on it's roof ha ha.

    I suspect there will be huge heists and small heists ranging from 2-16 recommended players.
