Some would argue that aspects to GTA Online have become a little over the top; but it’s success cannot be questioned. Not even in 2017, four whole years after launch.
GTA Online is as playable and content packed as its ever been. Gamers still keep coming back for more. Similar to FPS shooter Destiny, GTA Online has amassed a cult following of loyal fans who spend hours upon hours of game time playing through all the modes, both new and old.
Some of the new online modes GTA Online will have to offer are Transformation Racing, which for the first time will allow players to switch between air, water, and road during the course of a single race.
The foundation of GTA Online’ success has come from periodic releases of new game modes.
GTA Online: Changing The Game For Rockstar
The concept of GTA Online was favourable to gamers and was met with a ton of positivity following its original announcement. When GTA V launched in September 2013 (can you believe it’s been that long!?), gamers had two weeks to get familiar with the game prior to the online component releasing.
In 2013, and perhaps even before then, Rockstar had seen the writing on the wall. Online was the future for gaming; developers could no longer just rely on a jam-packed campaign mode. Gamers finish the core single player component of a game quicker than ever, and with that, they want more ‘bang for their buck’.
GTA Online not only gave gamers just that, it changed the course for future Rockstar games.
