Rockstar Games recently revealed the online multiplayer portion of GTA V titled as “GTA Online”. The developer showcased first ever gameplay footage of GTA Online which was well received by critics and GTA community.
Today Rockstar Games Director Leslie Benzies has shared more details about GTA Online. According to Leslie Benzies, GTA Online features over 700 missions.
3DJuegos recently asked (via GTA Forums) Leslie Benzies: How many missions have in GTA Online?. To this Leslie Benzies replied: “I think they are about 700 missions at this time. We hope you have a 500 always available, and are renewed continuously. You can also go to the Rockstar Social Club and get off more missions. So you can connect and download any player missions to populate your world online, both from friends and from other users.”
700 missions is a massive number and it can get any better than this for GTA community. GTA V is schedule to launch on September 17 for PS3 and Xbox 360 whereas GTA Online will launch a little later on October 1.
