The small teaser that says a lot!

Rockstar has finally given a reveal date for the highly anticipated multiplayer component of GTA V. So far, details have been scarce on Grand Theft Auto Online, Rockstar have played their cards very close to their chest and, as yet, we still know very little – all that is about to change!

On August 15th, Rockstar have promised ‘Gameplay Video & Previews’ will be revealed and we’ll finally have some concrete information on the multiplayer aspects of what stands to be one of the games of the year.

Though no details have surfaced yet, many theories have been presented of what GTA: Online might include. Some feel we could see fairly standard set-ups involving: Gang warfare linking to Franklin’s story; capture the flag/ briefcase scenarios that may link to Michael and races using both cars and airborne vehicles (loosely linked to Trevor). Others feel we’re going to see something completely different and original. It’s fair to say that so far the online component of GTA games has been, perhaps, one of the weaker areas of the franchise – so my money would be on them taking it in a new direction.

Granted, this is a mock-up, but that looks like there is room for one more!

One theory I have heard – and that makes sense to me – is the fact that online play will be integrated into the main game as seamlessly as possible. The games’ heads up display (HUD) on the screenshots we’ve seen would certainly suggest that players can swap between the 3 protagonists – but there is clearly a fourth, as yet unused, spot on the character wheel that appears in the bottom right-hand corner.

Whatever the reveal shows us, Twinstick will bring you the full scoop – including images and videos as soon as the news breaks! Be sure to check back on August 15th!
