GTA 5 Online Mode Supports 32 Players, Multiplayer Activities Listed

Gaming Blend "Scouring through the network configuration settings shows a number of administration tools and options that will be available. Given that this is the Xbox 360's configuration settings it surprised me to see that the game will support a max number of 32 players, even though the box indicates a max of 16 players. For those of you who have the “common” folder you'll find it in an XML for the network options – you can look through the files if you need verification." (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I thought so because in the first trailer in the end how they show the GTA online they show 32 people all around. Can't wait for GTA Online :D

PVP is gonna be lame with auto-aim. Just freaking turn it off for multiplayer mode!

^ like gta iv, im pretty sure it wil have both modes to choose from.

The auto aim pvp is actually pretty deep in other rockstar games like red dead and max payne. The trick is to free aim towards the head after you lock on, also you can still hit a enemy when he's outside your auto aim range by free aiming.

Personally i like the auto aim pvp cause its a nice change of pace from other shooters which al use free aim

while 32 to players is great, the back of my xbox and ps3 disc case says 8-16.
Maybe 32 to for PC?
KiLLeRCLaM  +   590d ago
If BF3 has 64 players PC version of GTA can do that as well, no??
r1sh12  +   590d ago
Doubt it, not to say that its impossible but 64 players on an entire city.
BF3 does not have anywhere near the graphical complexity of GTA V
FlyingFoxy  +   590d ago
Better if the game lets us select the amount we want, rather than a fixed amount.

32 should be the minimum, 64 max and after that it should let us go higher if the server creator so chooses.. with a map like V has, it needs a lot of players in it.

I mean even SA-MP's 200 player servers still don't use up the whole San Andreas map, but it is a lot of fun with that amount of players.
ThanatosDMC  +   590d ago
It's 32 for the PS3 and 16 on 360 according to neogaf. I doubt it but there you go.
lex-1020  +   589d ago
It's different. GTAV is trying to load an entire city. BF3 is only loading one map at a time where the only things moving are the players and whatever they interact with. GTAV has thousands of things moving all the time. So imagine trying to upload and download thousand of moving objects every second while you're connected as well as trying to constantly upload and download 64 players that are interacting with those objects and making them behave outside of the normal programmed routines.

32 is solid.

Can we steal other people's cars and sell them ?

Don't think we can in the single player, which is my only complaint of this awesome game so far.
Pintheshadows  +   590d ago
It'd be waaay to easy to farm money that way. Considering that there are many luxury cars all over northern Los Santos.
3-4-5  +   590d ago
Not really, you could put other things in the game to balance it out.

If you steal a really good car you automatically get 4 or 5 stars on you so it makes it that much more difficult to get away.

Steal a crappy car that sells for 5k, and maybe you get 1 star.
Pl4sm4  +   590d ago
it could go 32 because the single player renders so much

though im not sure if the framerate would hold stable if everyone shot rockets and explosions around
porkChop  +   589d ago
Actually if you count in the first trailer there's only 14 players I think. Definitely not 32. Anyway, just because the XML file says that the *max* is 32, that doesn't mean that the game will actually support 32. That could just be for the inevitable PC and next gen versions. 32 on PS3 and 360 sounds very unlikely.

Hmmm....still...I doubt my old ass PS3 can do more than 16 players in this vast open world.
Koyes  +   590d ago
You mean your internet
Shuyin  +   590d ago
??? Wtf you on 'bout?
My net's just fine.
And ppl still agree with that coment...
Koyes  +   590d ago
What I meant was, all PS3 consoles are the same (hardware wise) irregardless of model and so it would be a slow internet that would limit you online. I did not mean anything bad by it, apologies if I came across like that
XB1_PS4  +   590d ago
Dust slows them down. You have a 6 year old machine. Sometime that'll cause hiccups.
Shuyin  +   590d ago
And by "my old ass PS3" I mean every PS3. Might've described it wrong. But oh boy the hate is strong in this one..lol
Koyes  +   589d ago
Hate? I have nothing against you
0pie  +   590d ago
Have you ever heard about m.a.g?

it clearly has nothing with your ps3 if it can hold more than 16 players or not, even in starhawk you were able to get 32 players online at the same time.
MizTv  +   590d ago
Same with kz2
FragMnTagM  +   590d ago
M.A.G. didn't have anywhere near the strain that GTA 5 would put on your machine while multiplayer gaming.

Everything was bland and undetailed. There was hardly any physics, certainly no traffic algorithms, no pedestrian algorithms, and so on.

M.A.G. had to be toned down very much to support that many people.

The only place that will support more than 32 players for GTA will be PC. I doubt if the consoles will go over 16.
lex-1020  +   589d ago
What are you going on about? If they want 32 people to be playing at one time on your ps3 they are going to make it so 32 people can play on your ps3. The only thing that would prevent you from being able to would be your internet.
GrandpaSnake  +   590d ago
so i should buy this game now right?
Fil101  +   590d ago
lol serious ???
TrevorPhillips  +   590d ago
should've bought it from the start my friend
TheGrimOfDeath  +   590d ago
You got 130$ on you? That's the price for the Standard Edition in Saudi Arabia because it's banned here.
XB1_PS4  +   590d ago
@TheGrimOfDeath If this game was somehow $130 in the USA. I probably would've still bought it, and said it was worth every penny.

Not trying to disagree with you, that's just my opinion.
sAVAge_bEaST  +   590d ago
you should of bought it yesterday.
die_fiend  +   590d ago
LiQuiZoN  +   590d ago
No. Wait on the definitive ps4 version like me!
TheSaint  +   589d ago
No, you should have bought it Tuesday.
Drainage  +   590d ago
i might buy it just for cops n crooks. thats the only fun thing about the last gta4 game. i dont give a crap about all the other tennis or golf shit
TrevorPhillips  +   590d ago
The overall game is awesome my friend. Buy it!
sourav93  +   590d ago
How's the overall exploration factor of the game? I loved games like Skyrim where there were tons to explore. I've owned every single GTA since Vice City, but I've never finished a single one. Usually the story isn't good enough to make me want to finish it, or I get distracted with cheats. But I'm hoping GTA V would be different.
Swiggins  +   590d ago
GTA V is very different from the previous Grand Theft Autos.

For one, missions are actually fun to complete now, i.e. you do more than just drive and kill dudes. The heists in particular are incredibly fun and you're gonna wanna keep playing the campaign just to see what happens next.

There's also a tremendous amount of potential for mayhem and destruction. One of my favorite things to do is to hijack a Buzzard from the military base and then reign terror down on those lousy beachgoers!

Easily the best GTA ever, I highly recommend it.
XB1_PS4  +   590d ago
Tennis and gold, while being awesome, are not even close to this best parts of the game. The best part is getting attached to the characters' stories. All the while heisting the biggest banks in Los Santos.
CaptainPunch  +   590d ago
Will there be poker?
TrevorPhillips  +   590d ago
There will be strippers
KwietStorm  +   590d ago
The best form of poke her.
waltercross  +   590d ago
Have the stripper do lap dances get the Like meter up and you can take her home to her place. ;)
PickAShoe  +   589d ago
Poker + Stripper = Strip Poker

PC 64 players ^^

chinlu  +   590d ago
lol what?
SirBradders  +   590d ago
@chinlu san andreas is still being played right now with like 4000 players simultaneously playing on a server on the same map its crazy.
Obamanationn  +   590d ago
prolly right , im thinking GTA Online is the ground work for a GTA MMO
DoomeDx  +   590d ago
I think the PC versiom will have 32 players actually..just like gta iv for the pc.

If the game box says 16, it is 16.

Same counts for Cinema Mode the article talks abouf
DoomeDx  +   590d ago
Lots of typo's!
Sorry I just woke up and typed that on my cellphone.

Translated version:

I think the pc version will have 32 players. Just like GTA IV for the PC.

If the game box says 16 players, its 16 players. Why would rockstar show a lower number then the actual game supports?

Cinema mode was a PC exclusive for GTA IV too. This is due to ram limitations. Im sure next-gen GTA's will have this feature too with the 8GB of ram (Yes, IMO the ram is perfect for gameplay. Stop talking just about graphics with the 8GB N4G :) )

nope111  +   590d ago
Hoping a next gen version comes out with 32 player support.
maximus1985  +   590d ago
thats what im thinking, im guessing itll be 16 on current gen and 32 on next gen.
waltercross  +   590d ago
Either way, R* will not bring out a completely new Online version for along time, According to R* they are gonna build onto GTA Online.
mcknight8279109  +   590d ago
Hopefully they release a patch soon for all the people with the freezing problems. I'd hate to be online in the middle of a heist and the game crashes...
kingduqc  +   590d ago
Framerate was crap singleplay, with 32 players cause chaos it's gonna be unplayable.

It was dipping into 15-20 alot of time
kingduqc  +   590d ago

You guys seem to disagree with me.


You can't deny facts. Dipping into 10's is unplayable and not acceptable.
RE_L_MAYER  +   589d ago
Framerate is fine compare to how slow gta 4 was-this is as good as it gets on ps3 and 360....it drops a litlle in some areas but almost always smooth as butter
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   590d ago
I'm debating buying GTA 5 or Wind Walker HD...
RIP_Cell  +   590d ago
hoping this will be good
RE_L_MAYER  +   590d ago
Im like at 30-35% of game finishing-its awesome
jocomat9  +   589d ago

I thought the game was unrestricted, instead there are modes.. in SA-MP, in a mod like Cops n Robbers everyone does what they please, and with a lot of players this is best.

It kind of sounds like GTA V is going to be restricted like IV was to one mode, i hope when it comes to PC that everyone can do their own thing like in SA-MP and it is not restricted.

If it is.. well, back to the 200 player CnR servers of SA-MP and R* fail again in the multiplayer department.
