I see a lot of people talking features that rightfully SHOULD be in the single player game, but aren't available.

Well I'm here to let you know that every single feature you "think" should be there, WILL be there. Of course, it will only be available in GTA Online.

Insider info states that every single building in GTA 5, excluding ones you can already go inside of, we're designed as "shells." Shells, of course, meaning that the interior of the building can be designed and released at ANY time R* chooses.

Don't believe me? There's also hints to this ALL over the single player game. You know all the houses you see that say "for sale" on them? Well every single one of those is a shell, and when GTA Online launches you will be able to go inside of and ultimately BUY any one of them.

Same thing with the businesses. Ever see a business that had a "coming soon" sign on it? Well those will be open and available for missions in GTA Online.

Here's some more facts for ya to drool over:

1) Sky Scrapers will eventually be open upon release of DLC packs. They will contain high rise apartments that you can buy, and businesses that you can rob.

2) You will eventually be able to buy businesses in GTA Online that will earn you and your crew weekly and monthly revenue. Rival crews will be able to attack, and potentially destroy your businesses, so you have to keep your guard up. The stock market will port over to GTA Online, and if you own a certain business then Social Club members will actually be able to trade stock and invest in your business. But if you get too big and big hitter crews notice you, they can attack your business to ruin your stock. Depending on how much you invest in the success of your own business, another crew could potentially ruin you financially.

3) In GTA Online all your money needs to be stored in banks, via ATM deposits and withdrawals. Each of the 3 main banks in the game will all have a bank headquarters. If a crew successfully robs the headquarters of your bank then you risk losing SOME of your stored money. Although this one particular feature is unconfirmed, it is rumored that you will be able to choose which bank to store your money in, and that things like varying interest rates will change over time, making it more beneficial to store your money in one bank over another, but also makes it more risky.

4) The casino is slated to be open once GTA Online launches. Once available, you will be able to do typical casino stuff alone or with friends. You can bet on horse and dog races, play poker, play slot machines, etc. Poker will be playable much like in Red Dead Redemption, and there will be poker leader boards on the Social Club. Supposedly, the casino CAN be robbed by you and your crew, although it's supposed to be much harder than a bank job, but the pay out is greater.

5) If you lead a robbery with your friends or crew in the game, once the heist is completed YOU will get to choose how the money is divided up and who gets the bigger share. This is a great way to reward loyal crew members. But be careful, betrayal is a big part of GTA Online and once you complete a heist your crew members CAN betray you, kill you, and steal your money. This is a CONFIRMED feature of online mode.

6) The prison is slated to be a shell, as discussed above, that will be available later this year as a DLC pack. The DLC will contain new prison break game modes. In Prison Break, you and your crew attempt to infiltrate the prison and free another crew member or NPC.

7) Speaking of locked up, city jail will be a real thing. The only way to be locked up in city jail is to be caught during a robbery. If you are caught, you will have 4 options to get out. Either stay and serve your time, which is a preset amount of time, up to 10 minutes in real time I believe. Or you can pay "bail" money, which will cost more than the initial fine, but will make the police release you immediately. Alternatively, your friends and crew can attempt to break you out of jail by locating the police station you're at and attack it. If a crew member can reach a part of jail then there will be controls to open your cell so you can escape. It is also said you will be able to escape on your own, although he conditions in which you be able to escape will be randomized.

8) It is speculated the military base, not the "Area 69" base, will be featured in online mode some how. Although information on this particular feature is scarce, one rumor is that players will be able to attack the military base as a heist and steal military equipment and weapons, which once the job is done, get converted into a cash pay out for the crew.

9) One confirmed feature of online mode is the ability to make custom deathmatch missions. A player can host a party and customize the area in which the deathmatch will be played, giving the ability to place objects, weapons, and pickups anywhere.

10) One last thing for you wet your beaks on... BOUNTY MODE will be a feature of GTA Online. The only speculation at this point is whether or not it will launch October 1st and be a part of game right away, or if it will come later. Most people, however, agree it will be released immediately and built into the game just like in Red Dead Redemption. Much like RDR, you can have bounties placed on your head in multiple ways. One way is to kill enough civilians, in which you become a fugitive. Another way is to rack up a 5 star wanted level. Once you do this, you get listed in the game as a "most wanted" fugitive and other players are made aware of location so they can hunt you. Unlike RDR, if you the most wanted fugitive then people can not track you on the map as easily as they could in RDR. Instead, your whereabouts will be randomly reported via news and radio broadcasts. For example, if you are most wanted and are on the run, if you do something to draw attention to yourself such as kill someone or get spotted by police, then a radio broadcast is made to other players in the game that sounds like this, "Breaking news in Los Santos, the most wanted fugitive has been last seen near the corner of X Street and Y road. He is wanted for 'wanted reason' and is currently has a 'bounty amount' on his head. Citizens are advised to avoid the suspect as he is considered armed and extremely dangerous." Basically, it's a subtle hint to other players to tell them what direction they need to head in to find you. If a player finds you, the obvious thing to do is kill you and claim the bounty. However, you CAN be tasered or be engaged in a fist fight, and if you are subdued and detained instead of killed, then the bounty reward is higher. Supposedly, whether you are killed OR captured, the player or crew that got you must bring you to a random location in the world, usually a police station, in order to claim the bounty. If a crew, not just a single player, got you then ALL crew members must go together in order to claim the bounty, but much like a robbery heist only the leader of the bounty hunt is awarded the money, and it is up to him to decide how much each crew member gets. Other players can help crews with bounties, but if they weren't included in the hunt and/or don't go with the crew to claim the bounty, then no option is given to give them a pay out.


So... There's your BIG features you can expect in GTA Online. A lot of this has been confirmed by sources who demo played the Online Mode already, such as IGN. Other information, such as DLC links, are speculated based upon files copied off the XBOX console to a PC. These files are then "reverse engineered" and decoded to reveal hints and clues about locked game features that, obviously, will eventually be UNlocked.


Now, here's a list of SMALL features that will be available upon release of GTA Online.

1) Money will be able to be "gifted" to other players as you see fit.

2) Apparently, you will be able to take out loans from the bank to assist you with buying property. Rumor has it that bank loans will ONLY be available to buy property. The interest rates are high, and if you don't meet the requirements to pay the bank back on time, the bank can seize your property and anything inside of it, including cars in the garage, can be seized as well.

3) As mentioned earlier, stocks will be able to be traded among players via the Social Club. Real time stock quotes can be obtained via your cellphone and you can buy and sell shares of stock on the fly, which will have a positive or negative impact on your online financial status.

4) Jobs will be in GTA 5 and players can be "hired" to do many many different things. NPC's can randomly hire you as you explore the world, and you can make contacts and receive email offers for one time jobs, such as being a getaway driver for someone. Crews can also hire other players or crews to help them with anything. Not much is known about crew hires just yet. So we don't know if they're one time payments, or if it's contracted money that you get ONLY if you completed the job with the crew that hired you. This option allows crews to get professional help for jobs without compromising crew hierarchy and forcing you invite new players to your crew just to get something done.

5) Real estate will be an ever expanding part of GTA Online. Safe houses will be able to be customized. Even stuff like furniture can (supposedly) be rearranged to suit your style and taste. There WILL be online real estate websites designed specifically for online players to sell property they own. Property can be sold by owner or by agent. If sold by owner, there will be a special website for private listings. This way earns you the most money. If by agent, your property gets a "featured" listing on one of the real estate websites. This ensures your property is sold faster, but you make less money due to agent fees that the game takes from you. You will also be able to set your property in "open house" mode, but you must own another safe house already to do this. If your property is in open house, other players can go to it and go inside so they can see it.

6) Vehicles will be able to be sold at private auction. If you sell a vehicle you also sell its customizations as well, which the purchasing player will receive.

7) Pets can be purchased. At first, only dogs like Chop can be bought. But there will apparently be a content DLC pack that let's you buy other stuff as well, such as fish tanks for your house. The dog you buy can be trained like Chop and will assist you throughout the world, attacking players who attack you. If another player kills your dog, it does not respond and you have to buy another one and retrain it.

8) Your properties can supposedly be destroyed, although it's unclear as to how this work in the game. The best expert guess is that it will be like destroying businesses. If a player destroys your property you will be forced to sell it or renovate it. If your property is in "renovation mode" then you can not invite other players to your house until it's finished.

9) Radio will be customizable in 2 separate ways, but each way will cost you REAL money. One way is to purchase individual songs in an iTunes-like fashion. All purchased tracks will play on a custom radio station that you switch to. Purchased songs can not be transferred to other players, although there is supposedly a way to download a song you purchased so you actually own it and can use it at home, or put on your iPod or phone. At this time it is completely unclear as to what type of music will be sold. Due to license restrictions on music, most experts agree that the music that will be available will be from independent artists that give R* permission to sell their music. The other method is to purchase a feature that enables Internet radio. Once purchased, you can pick free Internet radio streams and listen to them in your vehicle. If you purchase this feature, then the music you listen to is synced with other players around you. So if someone gets in your car with you and you have Internet radio going then you all hear the same music at the same time.

10) Last, but certainly not least, will be the inclusion of Maryweather jobs. This will apparently be a DLC expansion coming later in the year, but will enable players to join other players as mercenaries. If you play as a mercenary working for Maryweather then you will have access to special missions and tasks available only to those players. Being a mercenary will be a playable class, meaning that it will have its own pros and cons. Some people will want to be mercy, some won't. One such example of this is that if you are a merc, certain heist jobs are unavailable to you, so you can never rob banks as a mercenary. However, an example of a positive feature is the ability to call for Maryweather backup. This gives you greater physical power over Street crews and greater protection in game. Calling for backup means mercenary NPC's and other online mercs will come to assist you in attacking other players. Like I said, this will be considered a game mode expansion and the Maryweather missions and ability to be a mercenary will have to purchased.

This all sounds really great and nice but without links or someway to back up these claims they're kinda useless...

 

Don't get me wrong.  I'm excited for GTA:O and these all sound great and do seem like things that would be put into the game but a lot of it I can't tell if you made up or interpreted an interview in your own way...

 

Links would do these claims justice.

Of course every single building in the game that isn't enterable is a "shell". The exterior is all that matters since that is all we'll be seeing. Yes, if R* wanted, they could give interiors to ANY building they wanted, but the same could be said for any game that has buildings... lol... and where are you getting all this DLC info? I call bullsh*t.

You can taxi-bug into banks/bars and other buildings and they all have complex interiors. Just the doors are locked.

Over half the stuff you mentioned doesn't have any back-up proof that it's in game. Especially that DLC you mentioned GTA Online isn't even out yet so why would R* be speaking of DLC yet? Stupid much?

Yesterday, companies like IGN released their first hands takes on GTA Online as they were invited by R* to try out online mode for the first time and report what they saw. Even IGN said that they were not permitted to video record their game play, but they could describe what they were able to do. Google it if you want and to will see.

As for the info on DLC packs. Any reference to a DLC itself is speculation. It is unclear if that mentioned DLC will be released for free with online mode launch or it will come later as a DLC that you must purchase.

Proof for certain features can not be provided as it is all ascertained by hacking game files. You can look in certain files, not just configuration files, and find a ton of clues to features that are currently hidden. If you find these clues, you can make best guess assumptions as to how R* will eventually include this code.

Showing you the code is not possible, so never ask. Hacking the game is illegal, and showing any part of the code is severely illegal.

Either take the word of the hackers or don't.

I also have from insider information (it's out there check for yourself) that you can get a job at Burger Shot (as all restaurants are shells) to get you easy money once your online character steps off the plane.

There's loads of mini-games like choosing the right cleaning spray to put on the tables, cleaning the bathrooms before your character spews from the smell and diffusing deadly situations when a customer orders two extra hot wings with his Heart Stopper and he only gets one.

I think one thing many people forget is that when GTA 4 first came out there were barely and buildings you could really go into but they opened them up with patches so I'm sure R* will open up more buildings in SP and MP as time goes by

Actually yes, and I apologize for not mentioning it. As crews are locked to the social club, the leader of a crew can not be ousted. Just like in MP3 though, there is a crew hierarchy and crew leaders can promote members from within the game. The crew leader can be killed, but can never lose his position as leader of the crew.

As for role playing, there is no sign of, or word on role playing actions. Obviously crews can RP all they want, and we've already seen crews dedicated specifically to being bounty hunters or police officers. This has been happening since RDR.

Way back in August I read in another forum that a R* employee leaked information about online mode, stating that there will be playable classes and factions and as such, players can have permanent jobs as police officers and uphold the laws of GTA Online.

Most people agree this made up and that a "cops and robbers" style game mode will be available, but your "class" itself can only be changed to Mercenary. Basically, you are always a criminal in this game.

Dude.. NO, Online won't have everything people expect it to have. It simply can't be done.

People like you are the same one's who praised the game to heavens before it was released, then said it sucks the moment they got it, and now you're building hype for GTAO again, only to be disappointed and spam the forum with ''GTAO SUCKZZZZ'' topics once it doesn't meat your silly expectations.

Normal people just knew what to expect and enjoy the game.

When has any online game had more features than the single player? You guys have retarded expectations and that's why you're always let down.
