We know that GTA V is going to feature the biggest world seen in a GTA game to date, but we have even more fantastic news to bring you now. Rockstar are certainly not going to rest on their laurels as we have confirmation that the GTA Online portion of the game will feature 500 missions to progress through – some of which are single-player only.
Just think about that for a second. You already have a massive single-player campaign to look forward to with Michael, Trevor and Franklin, but even more single-player missions to contemplate once GTA V is launched two weeks after the main September 17 release date.
It gets better as well. Details uncovered in the latest issue of Game Informer reveal that the missions in GTA Online are set after the events of the story in GTA V – meaning that your journey will essentially continue long after you have completed the main campaign.
It sounds amazing to us and yet another sign that Rockstar are unrivaled when it comes to going the extra mile to ensure that their fanbase are happy with the final product. Before you get worried about a potential cap after the 500 missions, we also hear that Rockstar plans to add new locations to GTA Online on a frequent basis – meaning that new content and missions are surely going to be added in as well gradually.
We’ve seen a lot of you ask whether GTA Online is a paid extra on top of GTA V, but just to confirm for you once again – GTA Online is free at no extra cost and comes included with every copy of GTA V. As highlighted above though you just have to wait for two weeks for Rockstar to actually go live with their servers.
It just gets better and better doesn’t it? The only danger that we can see is people rushing into GTA Online despite not finishing up the main GTA V campaign mode. Let us know how you plan to divide your time.
