IGN’S GTA 5 Online Hands-On Preview

As a part of the IGN’s GTA 5 feature week, the second article, this time about GTA 5 Online Hands-on Preview, was published just now. The post revealed:

The IGN staff were the first non Rockstar employees to play the GTA 5 online mode.

  • Robbing Convenience Stores: He takes his friend outside of his home and they head to the store. While driving the crew member on the passenger seat changes the radio channel but he wanted to listen to Lazlow on WCTR and yells at him to change it back. Once in the front of the shop they get out and pull on the masks while rushing into the building. You can scream at the employee trough the headset in order to intimidate him and causing more stress makes him put the money faster in the bag. Back in the vehicle the time has come to loose the cops using a hideout in one of the skyscrapers garage. The friend can decide to give you only 10% but then he would risk to get killed or you can make 50-50.
  • Random encounters with your friends at races and chases: While racing with some selected friends with the police behind you, a situation can happen where other friends and the police they have behind them could cross your line causing mass trouble for you and your friends, like a roadblock thought for drivers of another race.
  • Full-o-airplane heist: This mission is already known from previous articles on the net, the “titan heist”. The player can attack a military base and steal a huge cargo plane, flying with escort from friends and land it on your own airstrip. Clicking the left thumb-stick opens the landing gears by the way.
  • Multiplayer mini-games: Tennis can be played by 2 players while golf can be up to 4 players. They are as good as standalone games.
  • House Party: Buy a luxury apartment and invite your friend to join the party where you can smoke ganja, drink, watch TV shows like Space Rangers, Moorehead Rides Again and the American Idol parody Fame or Shame. When a friend gets chased by the police, relax on your couch and watch them fighting with the police on Weazel News.
  • GTA 5 Online Missions: More then 500 missions on the launch of the multiplayer feature on October, 1st. Participation can vary from 2 up to 16 players. More will be developed and added with time. The missions that gets the most votes from the crew is up next. When a mission is voted down too much Rockstar will remove it so people can play their favorites more often. Revealed: The Bubble Up Mission.
  • Cinema: Up to 16 players can fill the movie theater and watch over 20 movies.
  • ATM’s: You do not need to carry a huge amount of cash with you to buy a house or weapons. Credit Cards are the most secure option to go shopping because when you get shot you will lose all cash that was on you but the card will stay untouched. Question: Will we need to use access codes?
  • Custom Missions and races: The creator tools at first will be made available only for deathmatches and races at the launch.
  • Strip Clubs: A “Make it rain” button available to use in strip clubs and if you touch the stripper more then three times, they will kick you out.
