If you haven't watched the GTA V Online trailer already, go watch it! If you have, then I expect you are just as excited as me!
First things first though- some have been a little confused at the whole GTA V Online thing. The trailer has made it to sound like some kind of standalone game, but Rockstar have cleared things up. GTA V Online will be accessible from any standard GTA V and won't require a code, a subscription or any kind of money to access.
However, the online multiplayer portion of GTA V won't be available until October 1st. This means that if you get the game at launch or before October, you won't be able to play online with your buddies and will only be able to play single-player.
The reason for this is most likely that Rockstar wants to spend two more weeks truly polishing up the multiplayer experience so that it arrives in tip top condition for all of us to play how Rockstar wanted us to play it.
If you've watched both gameplay trailers, than you can see why this is definitely understandable and I think Rockstar deserves to spend the time they need to put even more love into the game.
Rockstar is one of my favorite developers because they don't release their games and tie them to any random publisher deals which means we won't be paying more for content and Rockstar even said that they'll be constantly updating the online world and making changes that we can access for free!
Stay tuned for our custom controllers themed around Grand Theft Auto V in the near future!
