Grand Theft Auto V's online mode looks sweet, but won't be available on launch day

1886b5048d02d0def387241bd3416537Rockstar has released a new trailer for the online mode in Grand Theft Auto V called Grand Theft Auto Online. A hub which seems to be similar to Red Dead Redemption - 16 players roaming around the city of Los Santos GTA style, and pretty much whatever the hell they want. Excited? Cool, but the online component won't be available on release day.

Grand Theft Auto online will be available on October 1 as a free download to all players with a copy of GTA V. No real reason why it won't be available on launch day but hey, Michael, Franklin, and Trevor escapades will be enough to keep us busing until release.

 Grand Theft Auto Online trailer Before the release of the trailer, I was curious to why they bothered calling it Grand Theft Auto Online, instead of saying GTA V multiplayer. Now it makes sense, since Rockstar plans to constantly update the game just like any other online game.

Grand Theft Auto V will be available on September 17 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360.

If you haven't yet, don't forget to register in our first ever giveaway. One lucky viewer will get a copy of GTA V and it's on us. Check out the details here.
