Here’s some more information to help get everyone ready for the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online. You can also look forward to plenty of GTA Online game tips and other community support features to roll out at the Rockstar Games Social Club website later today as well – expect tutorial tips to be updated regularly as new content is added to GTA Online.
Some people who’ve been playing through Grand Theft Auto V’s Story Mode have been inquiring how the narrative of GTA Online correlates or crosses over. Grand Theft Auto Online is set a few months prior to the events of Grand Theft Auto V’s single player story.
GTA$ and Fair Play
To allay some concerns we’ve heard on this subject, we can assure you that the game is designed such that the option of purchasable GTA$ should not disrupt the playing field – and there are a few mechanics in place to help ensure that. All players still have to rank up with Reputation Points (RP) in order to get access to purchase high-end items. No one can begin GTA Online and simply spend a lot of money out of the gate to get a leg up. You will have to earn your stripes and play to unlock access to the aspirational clothes, guns and other items. Please also remember that in GTA Online, hustling to afford the finer things by earning GTA$ doing robberies, stick-ups, winning races and other profitable activities is a fun gameplay experience rather than ever being a ‘grind’. As we mentioned on Wednesday, we will constantly tweak all areas of the game to make it play fairer and iron out any balancing problems (while fixing all the other problems we encounter!), but we really need your help in figuring out what those issues are. So please work with us on that!
An Ever-Growing Collection of Jobs
Grand Theft Auto Online is a long-term GTA experience that you can expect to be built-upon, to grow and to evolve in many ways in the coming weeks, months and beyond. As part of that, there will be a massive amount of Jobs available to play over time as we will be regularly adding new ones for you to enjoy. Additionally, you will soon be helping to add content to the game world yourselves, by creating custom Race and Deathmatch Jobs through the Content Creator tool which we plan to release this fall. Grand Theft Auto Online is a collaborative project between Rockstar and all GTA players worldwide, so expect that we’ll effectively be working on it together from day one. As a very small example, the Crew Hierarchies feature that was introduced a few weeks back on Social Club was a direct result of popular fan feedback from last year – and we’ll be looking at the GTA Online community’s feedback, input and ideas constantly to help inform how the game itself will grow and evolve. As mentioned last week, we’ll be looking closely at your feedback emails sent toGTAOnline@rockstargames.com and in the GTA Online Suggestion Box board at the forthcoming Social Club Forums. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming you as active participants in the world of GTA Online starting tomorrow.
The Character Creation System
The hereditary-based character creation system of Grand Theft Auto Online allows for a multitude of options to create your avatar that will then inhabit the online world of Los Santos & Blaine County. Choose your gender then decide on your mother and father. From there, you can choose to give one parent genetic dominance or leave them more evenly matched. The choice is yours. Next, you adjust a set of lifestyle variables which help determine your character’s appearance and starting stats. Decide how much sleep he/she gets, how much partying they indulge in, how much honest work versus illegal activity, and more. Essentially, you can adjust the genetics to wind up with a fresh faced lad or lass or a grizzled, haggard degenerate or anywhere in between! You’ll also be able to preview your end result in real time all throughout to ensure you’re satisfied before putting your character on a direct flight to LS. Of course, once you’re out and about in the open world, you can further customize your character with haircuts, clothing and accessories to suit your tastes.
Exclusive Social Club FeaturesIn
Grand Theft Auto Online, Social Club members get access to weaponry and vehicular unlocks, a whole new suite of Crew features to represent and coordinate with your squad, and special tools to get the most out of Rockstar Jobs and user-created Jobs when the Content Creator tool launches this fall. Check out the updated www.rockstargames.com/V/socialclub for an overview of GTA Online Social Club features including new Crew customization possibilities like Crew colors and Emblem vehicle decals, Crew messaging options, and Open or Closed Crew Sessions. Plus unlocks like the Sawed-Off Shotgun, the Annis Elegy RH8 and the John Marston Parent option to do the Marston family proud in the modern day West. Also stay tuned for info later in October about the very first GTA Online Social Club Events which will have special Event Playlists curated by Rockstar, reserved in-game license plate awards for top players, and more. So, if you haven’t joined, we recommend doing so!
After waking past my local Blockbusters and noticing their returns policy, a thought popped into my head about the GTAV multiplayer. Is the later release of the online component a really good move as it may well stop early trade in's of the game.The two week (or so) spilt between the single player release and the eventual online mode will make alot of players have to decide between, getting a guaranteed return value on their game or missing out on what appears to be Rockstar's ultimate multiplayer mode. Obviously the delay may just be trying to get the online world of Los Santos right, but it seems like this could really work for Rockstar as it may encourage the secondary (purchasing period) buyer's to purchase new copies as there may well be less used copies around.
Just a thought
After riding over the competition on the PS3, Vita and 3ds Tate Multimedia's Juulien Dupont inspired title has finally come to steam.

Konami Digital Entertainment Inc. has unveiled its covers and DLC content for the eagerly-awaited Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2014 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
As KONAMI is the exclusive holder of the UEFA Champions League competition, the game's global packaging will highlight Pro Evolution Soccer 2014's replication of the competition, rather than concentrating on players. PES embodies the aspirations, skill and determination that shine through in Europe's premier club competition, and the new packshot uses the globally recognised branding of the tournament.
In addition to releasing the UEFA Champions League packshot, KONAMI has also released its Latin American covers for PES 2014, showcasing the players and leagues that make up some of the most exciting soccer squads in the world.
KONAMI has also announced DLC elements for the new game, in addition to a number of pre-order elements. Fans who pre-order Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 from certain retailers will be given DLC codes to add classic Latin American and European kits to the main game. These include famed sides such as AC Milan (1989-90), Manchester United (1998-99), Santos (1968), Colo Colo (1992) and Boca Juniors (1997). Additional digital pre-order DLC will add current third kits for teams such as Manchester United, Inter Milan and Juventus. Roster updates, new kit elements and additional DLC will also be regularly available during Pro Evolution Soccer 2014's lifespan.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 marks a new beginning for the popular series, with its new FOX engine allowing for the most comprehensive advance in the PES franchise since its inception. For years, the PES Productions Team has looked at how matches ebb and flow to develop a new approach to football. As a result, PES 2014 will use Kojima Production's renowned Fox Engine at its core. It has six central tenets: M.A.S.S., TrueBall Tech, Heart, PES ID, Team Play and Core. They govern everything from the way the player receives and controls the ball, the physicality of play, and the 'feel' of match-day: the rush of euphoria or crushing lows that experiencing an important game can bring.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 will be available at retail stores throughout North, Central and South America and nationwide beginning Sept. 24, 2013.
