With just hours remaining until the initial launch of Grand Theft Auto Online, rockstar games released some more information to help get everyone ready for tomorrow.
Access to GTA Online
Access to Grand Theft Auto Online will be free to everyone who owns a copy of Grand Theft Auto V. On October 1st there will be a small downloadable Title Update released on PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE. Upon installation of that Title Update, direct access to begin GTA Online will be unlocked in your GTAV game menu. You will be able to jump right into GTA Online via the 4th (bottom) slot in your GTAV character wheel.
When does GTA Online Take Place
Grand Theft Auto Online will be taking place a couple of months prior to the GTA V single player story.
Home and Garage Security
There’s plenty of havoc and treachery you can cause out in the open world of course, but in order to prevent some really annoying “griefing”, rockstar designed house party to be a friendly social affair where players can visit each other’s pads without fear of having them ruined or losing their hard-earned vehicles in the process. If someone invites you into their property, then it is considered a friendly visit and you will not be able to shoot up their place or steal their cars from their garage.
An Ever-Growing Collection of Jobs
New content and jobs will be constantly added to the game by rockstar. Additionally, palyers will soon be helping to add content to the game world yourselves, by creating custom Race and Deathmatch Jobs through the Content Creator tool which we plan to release this fall.
The Character Creation System
The hereditary-based character creation system of Grand Theft Auto Online allows for a multitude of options to create your avatar that will then inhabit the online world of Los Santos & Blaine County. Choose your gender then decide on your mother and father.
