On Thursday, the trailer for Grand Theft Auto Online was released. Grand Theft Auto V will be released on September 17th and GTA Online will be accessible to those who buy GTA V. You won’t be able to play it right away though. From what I read on the website, it will be available on October 1st.
The Grand Theft Auto games have always been a guilty pleasure of mine, I love them. GTA Vice City is my favorite so far, who doesn’t love the 80’s and Miami? When I heard that there was another GTA coming out I was really excited. I definitely enjoy sandbox games and that was something that really drew me to Grand Theft Auto IV. Sometimes, I would just drive around the whole map and find some secrets instead of playing the story missions.
Compared to the previous game, the online concept has been redesigned to give you endless possibilities within the world. On the previous game, you were limited to choosing a game mode (Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Turf War). There was a Free Mode though, where you could roam around with your friends with no rules. Now, you will be able to do missions, buy properties and vehicles and be able to choose the way you want to play. I think this is absolutely wonderful, especially when this seems to be the biggest map of all the GTA games. Exploring (which is one of my favorite parts within a game) will be so much fun.
I’m really excited for this game and I can’t wait to play it and have access to Online. I pre-ordered my copy for the PS3 and I will definitely write a review of the game and Online once I play it.
