Developed ter tandem with Grand Theft Wagen V, Grand Theft Automaat Online wasgoed conceived spil a separate practice to be played te a continually evolving world. [Two] Up to 30 players [a] loosely wander across a re-creation of the single-player world and inject lobbies to accomplish jobs (story-driven competitive and cooperative modes). [Three] The Content Creator toolset lets players create their own parameters for custom-built jobs, like racetracks and deathmatch weapon spawn points. [Five] Players may plakband together ter organised player teams called crews to finish jobs together. Rockstar Games Social Club extends crews formed te Max Payne Trio ‘s multiplayer mode to that of Grand Theft Automaat Online. Players can create their own crews and join up to five total. Crews win multiplayer matches to earn practice points and climb online leaderboards. 
Te Grand Theft Wagen Online, players create a fresh character specific to the online world, which shows on the screen’s Switch Wheel alongside single-player characters Franklin, Michael, and Trevor.  The player-characters are designed by a genetics-related process.  Greater control is given to the character’s clothes and hairstyles. The mute player-character online avatar arrives te Los Santos by plane and is picked up by Lamar Davis, who gives the character a gun and a car. An hour-long tutorial introduces the player to the various spel modes, driving, fighting, and spel progression mechanics.  The story is not central te the multiplayer, however it serves spil a prequel to the single-player story, where characters from the single-player are woven ter. 
Similar to single-player, players can level up their character’s attributes such spil driving and stamina. Sensational to GTA Online is a system of earning practice, usually by successful completion of activities. Accumulating enough practice to level up unlocks weapons, clothing, car customizations, and more advanced activities (such spil parachuting and aircraft). Once unlocked, items need to be purchased with in-game currency, which can be earned or purchased with real money. Players can circumvent an activity’s level requirements by joining a spel with others of a sufficient rank. There are options to play alone or with friends, and an option for “Passive Mode”, which makes the player immune to other players. 
Aside from the open world, there are three main types of set activities: racing (by car, bike, air or boat), Deathmatch (team or free-for-all), and objective-based Voeling Missions (simplified single-player-like storyline jobs, usually cooperative). Online uses lock-on aim and emphasises stealth ter firefights. “Adversary Mode” adds several asymmetric variations on thesis activities, including “Siege Mentality” where one team is besieged by another, and “Hasta Schuiflade Vista” where truckers pursue down cyclists (reminiscent of the truck/motorcycle pursue ter Terminator Two: Judgment Day). “Survival” pits a team of up to four players against ten flaps of enemies, similar to the Zombies mode te Call of Duty: Black Ops. The Heists Update released on Ten March 2015 adds five co-op elaborate multi-part missions, each mission having several setup jobs leading up to the finale crime which is a high-profit job. The player who is the heist leader has to unlock each heist ter order and pay the upfront costs, while receiving the largest payoff (at the end, if successfully finished) and getting their progress saved, while other players (the squad members) can join any setup/finale jobs without prerequisite and get paid a cut for each mission passed. The heists, all requiring four players except the very first which is two-player, often assign specific roles to players such spil driver, gunner, etc. and/or may split them chic, and a headset is recommended for communicating with other players.

The spel includes a content creation contraption that lets players make automobile races and deathmatches.  Players can choose the location, begin and spawn points, and weapon and voertuig drops ter deathmatches, and the location, route, wedren type, and player count te air, land, or sea races. Creations have to be tested against computer-controlled players before the mode is available online. The creations can also be published for others to use.
