32 Player Free Mode?

Recommended Posts

Homemade Dynamite

I seriously hope R* will be able to expand the number of players in Free Mode. Given the sheer size of the map, getting to other players would be a pain if we still only have 16 players.

 

Do you think it's possible to have 32 players in this game? With everything else in this game being expanded and with multiplayer being "revolutionary", I certainly hope so.

I think we'll get MMO scale in the PC version, consoles will probably have 24 max. Just my opinion, don't tase me bro.

How many was allowed in GTA4? was it 12? Red Dead it was 16. As _L1pE_ suggests it may well be 24, and if it is I can live with that. I think anything less than 24 would be a shame given the size and scale of the map.

 

Dammit R* give us some MP info already. biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

The question is would you take 16 players in freemode again if all the single player features were in this time? I think I would. But then again am getting the PC version as well which is likely to be 64 players. Shifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gif

hi folks!

 

anyone played test drive unlimited 2? the world actualy is very big and the way they did multiplayer lobby is a good concept i think. Even though it was a bit laggy...

 

 

So thats how TDU2 did it: The idea is to have always enough players around the area you are curently playing.

The game will look to other lobbys to find players, that are in the same area as you, an drop them all into one lobby.

 

(i try to explain it on a gta4 case)

 

1.) 10 lobbys of GTA4 freeroam games.

2.) You are playing around the ''Dukes'' area.

3.) The game now scans the other 9 lobby for people playing also in the ''Dukes'' area.

4.) All players around ''Dukes'' area will but together in one Singel Lobby'' SEAMLEASLY!!!

 

You can also connect yourself with other player/friends to stay together always, i think that could by a crew feature or something.

If they do it... It would be mindblowing. But always with the option of a prívate game and play with your friends

While that is a great way to do it I suspect R* will follow the same principle as they did for RDR where certain MP game modes will be dotted around the map and then players can activate those points and invite the lobby to join in, as well as joining MP games from the mobile phone/side menu.

Since R* will take a new direction with the multiplayer I predict there will be (way) more than 32 players on one map. They call it GTA Online.. sounds more like a MMO or something.

Eh they've had dodgy servers in the past, I couldn't ever find anyone on RDR. Taking the size of the map in question it would have to be like an MMO to be effective, imagine having 16 players over like 8 GTA IV's.

It'll be 32 for consoles. And if there is a PC version(I hope so), it'll be 64.

We'll have at least 24. At first, you'd say I sound optimistic, but it's actually realistic. They have to justify the map size. In RDR and in GTA IV, it sucked when players were all the way on the other side of the map and you had to travel all they way over there (which was made easier in RDR with Transport). Just imagine in GTA V. You're in the city... And everyone else is all they out in the f*cking desert.

This is going to be either really amazing or really disappointing with the online pop limit. I don't think (depending on what you do) 16 is enough...neither 24.

 

unless they section the map.. but even then that's a dreadful idea. It's going to be interesting but I defo think its going to be a marmite situation.

 

Personally... as long as I can play with my mates and have unlimited ammo - or atleast start with max ammo and all guns I don't mind what they do.

MAG on PS3 had what, over 100 players???? so its possible....i just dont know if it will work in a game like GTA5. they should stick with 10 and play it safe, 32 players would be a DIZASTER.

I think we'll have to wait for PC or next gen release for that tbh. Anyways, me thinks they'll but all the focus on having fewer players for heist type multiplayer games.

Why the hell would they lower the player count in Free Mode just because of a separate heist multiplayer mode?

So in GTA 4 Free Mode could you play with 15 other players on the map?

If GTA V's map is indeed more than twice the size of RDR's map, then they'll definitely have to expand on the number of players. Even with 16 players, it felt like too little in RDR's map imo.
