The release date for Grand Theft Auto V is just around the corner, and Rockstar has unveild a new trailer for GTA Online, which will be a hugely ambitious change for the franchise.

According to their press release, GTA Online will be able to support up to 16 players at once, allowing them to share geography, mechanices, and gameplay features of GTA V. They assure players that GTA Online will not just stay as-is after release—Rockstar plans on expanding the online content far beyond what it’ll be on release day.

From the press release:

In Grand Theft Auto Online, players have the freedom to explore alone or with friends, work cooperatively to complete missions, band together to participate in activities and ambient events, or compete in traditional game modes with the entire community, all with the personality and refined mechanics of Grand Theft Auto V.

Players can invest in their character through customizing their appearance, improving their stats, owning customized vehicles, purchasing personal property, and taking part in missions, jobs and activities to earn reputation and cash to open up new opportunities to rise through the criminal ranks. The world of Grand Theft Auto Online will constantly grow and change as new content is added, creating the first ever persistent and dynamic Grand Theft Auto game world.

GTA Online will be free, as long as you’ve already purchased a retail copy of GTA V, and it’ll launch on October 1st.
