Rockstar has commented on the 32-player rumor, confirming that “GTA Online will support 16 players.”
Despite Grand Theft Auto V’s online portion of the game, GTA Online, being just a few days away until its October 1 release date, it appears that information regarding game modes and player count has been recently leaked.
According to Cinemablend, Rockstar will be bringing back fan-game modes to GTA Online like Cops and Crooks, Free For All, Races and, of course, a Team Deathmatch mode. Although these game modes’ return should come to no real surprise, seeing as they were featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, it looks like the folks over at Rockstar will be giving the player cap a slight bump.
GTA Online is billed to host 16 players at once as they indulge in various game modes and activities, including some of the 500 missions that Rockstar has already created once GTA Online is available. However, some of the configuration files for these game modes hint at a possible 32 player cap.
Don’t get your hopes too high though, as the 32 player cap could simply be for the alleged PC and PlayStation 4 versions of the game, for which coding and assets have been found within both the game itself and in the companion app “iFruit”, available now for iOS devices and soon for Android devices.
Speaking of those 500 missions, some tid-bits of info have surfaced, claiming some of the missions will have you assassinating another player while it’s up to the cops to try and stop this assassination from happening.
Additionally, it seems that the Cops and Crooks game mode will be featuring some interesting improvements such as cops being able to use scanners to check license plates to see if the vehicle is stolen. That, in turn, can alert the police to any suspect and assign a squad car to come and arrest them.
Grand Theft Auto V is available now for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, which GTA Online soon to follow this October 1.
