GTA Online is one of the most expansive and rewarding online multiplayer experiences that successfully captures the essence of the single-player mode.
The game is not a standalone title and comes along with a copy of GTA V. Therefore, no further purchases are required to play GTA Online.
There isn't a huge learning curve involved with GTA Online, but it can look daunting at first. Several game modes, match types and activities are available to the player from the start.
After a somewhat barebones Tutorial, the player is thrown into the world of GTA Online, and one that is rampant with high-powered weaponry and vehicles.
GTA Online is an online multiplayer experience like no other, and the fact that it doesn't require a purchase makes it a must-play for a lot of players.
