With Rockstar Game’s jaw-dropping first look at GTA Online being officially revealed last week, more details have recently surfaced regarding what we can expect the ambitious online mode to include when it launches October 1.
In a recent interview with 3djuegos, Leslie Benzies, the director of Rockstar North, has revealed that GTA Online is expected to have 500 missions any given time which are renewed constantly, and 700 mission in total at the time of the interview. If that’s not enough to keep you satisfied and are craving even more missions, you can easily go download a few more off of Rockstar Social Club.
Additionally, more details of key features GTA Online will feature have emerged from this interview, which the folks over at the GTA Forums have outlined. Check them out below:
- The camera will zoom out and pan away to your online character seamlessly. During the animation, a matchmaking process will be in progress.
- Matchmaking will depend on which friends are playing and players that have ranks near your own.
- You can do almost anything you can do in single player in GTA Online.
- Each mission requires a rank depending on difficulty and complexity. The bigger your rank, the more difficult the missions will be.
- There are around 700 missions in GTA Online.
- Missions will be ordered randomly as you play Online.
- For certain heists you might need certain weapons, vehicles or characters such as a sniper or a driver. This will also depend on the mission creator if you download the mission from the Social Club.
- Some missions are so complex they need plenty of good communication.
- There will be descriptions to help each character on its heist function.
- You can change weather, time of day, time you want it to rain or to be a certain weather state, radio station to be tuned at the start of the race or mission in the Content Creator.
- There is something called “team lives”. If you have 4 team lives and 4 people, if everyone dies there will be 0 lives left, or if you die 4 times, the team will have 0 lives left, which means if anyone dies, it’s mission failed.
- You can watch races and deathmatches on your apartment TV.
- There are masks to hide from the cops.
- The Online will be run on the Social Club servers, data will be stored on the cloud. There are datacenters from NY to San Diego, and more Rockstar studios.
Grand Theft Auto V is set to release worldwide on September 17 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but feel free to check out the spoiler-free achievement list here.
