Grand Theft Auto Online will be sharing the gameplay features, geography and gameplay mechanics with Grand Theft Auto V but will expand and evolve after its launch with new content created by Rockstar Games and the GTA community. According to Rockstar Games, the upcoming online play that allows up to sixteen players will take the fundamental Grand Theft Auto concepts of freedom, ambient activity and mission-based gameplay and makes them available players in a detailed and responsive online world. In other words, think of this upcoming Grand Theft Auto Online as a mini-MMO since it will only allow up to sixteen players.
Another interesting information that Rockstar Games released today is that players will have freedom to explore alone or with friends, work cooperatively to complete missions, band together to participate in a plethora of activities or compete in the game’s traditional modes, all with the personality and refined mechanics found in Grand Theft Auto V.
