Set to launch October 1st, GTA Online is GTA V’s persistent online multiplayer mode which will feature up to 16 player co-op missions, races, heists, deathmatches, sports and other shenanigans. GTAO will also feature “single-player features” too (I’ve got my fingers crossed that this means what I hope it means).
