In September 2013, Rockstar launched GTA 5. Two weeks later, they surprised the gaming community once more with GTA Online, an online alternative to GTA 5.

In this article, let’s learn all about GTA Online and how you can level up your gameplay.

What is GTA Online About?

GTA Online is a multiplayer game based on GTA 5 that allows you to complete missions, races, heists, and more with friends and other players. This is like an extension to GTA 5, allowing you to create your own story once the main story is finished.

There are also many DLCs released exclusively for GTA Online, which will give you limited items, businesses, missions, and more.

To fully enjoy GTA Online, you can try role-playing with friends and mods. FiveM is a popular alternate online server that allows modding.

What Can You Do in GTA Online?

There are a lot of things you can do in GTA Online: play with your friends, go to heists, buy properties, customize your cars, earn money, level up your reputation, etc.

1. Player Creation

Initially, GTA Online allows you to create a customizable character and lets you progress through the game.

By completing missions, earning money, and increasing your reputation, you will be able to acquire new items for your character, such as clothes, hairstyles, beards, masks, and more.

Not to mention all the limited items and freebies you will get every time Rockstar releases a new weekly event.

2. Weekly Events

GTA Online gained popularity due to its continuous updates. For gamers who enjoy collecting limited items, these updates provide endless opportunities to grind and stay engaged.

The game offers various activities, from traditional missions to more competitive modes like races, heists, and other team-based objectives.

Players can also buy properties, vehicles, and weapons using in-game currency earned by completing missions or engaging in various activities.

If you feel you’re lagging behind your friends in progress, especially if some of them already own numerous properties, you can accelerate your progress by purchasing in-game money through Shark Cash Cards.

You can also try getting the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack to help you boost your progress and climb up the ranks faster.

4. Earn GTA$ and Level Up RP

To become a criminal mastermind in GTA Online, you need to have RP and GTA$. No need to worry, though. You can earn both at the same time while playing the game.

That being said, there are numerous ways to earn money in GTA Online and several methods to level up your reputation, known as “RP.”

Checking the income in GTA Online

You can also earn money by owning many businesses in GTA Online. However, it would be best if you had some savings to buy one because it requires a lot of cash.

RP can be leveled up in many ways, such as going on missions, participating in events, spinning the wheel at the casino, getting a wanted level, killing a player, etc.

When was GTA Online Released?

GTA Online was released on October 1, 2013, approximately two weeks after the release of GTA 5 on September 13, 2013.

The release of GTA Online was not that impressive. In fact, some players are reporting a lot of bugs and crashes, such as connection issues, freezes on the load screen, and problems with character progress not saving.

Because of these reports, Rockstar fixed the issues with a patch on October 5, 2013. They also released another patch on October 10 and gave players GTA$ 500,000 as compensation for the inconvenience.

As of today, GTA Online still experiences occasional bugs and crashes. However, their response time and ability to quickly fix these issues have significantly improved.

After 10 years, GTA Online remains one of the best games in history, thanks to its constant updates, events, and freebies.

Will GTA 6 Have Its Own Online Version?

It’s still unclear whether GTA 6 will have an Online version, but people are already talking about it on Reddit. We’ll just have to wait for Rockstar to make an official announcement to know for sure.

Gamers are worried because they’ve put a lot of time, effort, and money into GTA Online. Some of them are freaking out about what’s going to happen with their GTA Online account, GTA$, and RP when GTA 6 drops its own online version.

On the one hand, some gamers wish for GTA 6 Online to offer a fresh start, while others hope to transfer their files from GTA Online to GTA 6 Online.

It’s understandable for gamers to worry about the safety of their online accounts, especially when they’ve spent 10 years building them.

For now, it looks like Rockstar is going to put all their attention into releasing the GTA 6 trailer on December 5th, 2023.
