Rumor/Leak/Unconfirmed: GTA: Online 32 players online...

Recommended Posts

Karoi

As you know, the GTA V Online mode was not available when the game launched and it is expected to remain like that at least for 15 days until October 1st. This delay has been reportedly used by Rockstar to improve this mode and add features such as the doubling of the player count (from 16 to 32) and the classic games modes inside of it.

This is what a leaked report says:

Scouring through the network configuration settings shows a number of administration tools and options that will be available. Given that this is the Xbox 360's configuration settings it surprised me to see that the game will support a max number of 32 players, even though the box indicates a max of 16 players. For those of you who have the “common” folder you'll find it in an XML for the network options – you can look through the files if you need verification.

In addition to player limit, the game will feature a “Freemode” for one through 32 players and no team options.

A co-op mode is also available, it only supports two-players and I assume this is for the GTA Online story mode. But I don't know, so don't quote me on co-op only being for story mode, it could be like Saints Row where it's just a limit of two-players and you can just run around and do stuff... I don't know.

A free-for-all “Deathmatch” or “DM” mode is also present. Again, it supports up to 32 players – or so, that's what the configuration file is showing.

A “Team Deathmatch” or “TDM” mode is also present. It supports 32 players and a max of two teams.

A “Races” mode is available, again, 32 players.

There's a reference to a multiplayer test bed, but I don't think it's an actual game mode. I could be wrong, though.

A “CnC” or “Cops and Crooks” mode is also present. It looks like there are two gang options and a cop option. It also shows support for up to 32 players. However, I'm almost under the impression that this is the max threshold and that there will be other limitations put in place so that all 32 players aren't actually playing. Then again, who knows, maybe Rockstar found a magical way to host that many players on the current gen home consoles?

The last option from out of the lobby menu is for the mission creator launcher.

You have more info in the link.

This would change my stance entirely on a lot of things that I am unhappy with.

 

When I heard of this massive world and the online for it, having not played 4 online I expected the player count to be higher otherwise the world would feel somewhat empty and not have that true chaotic feel to it. I mean it would literally be your crew and one other, how boring. But if it comes out as 32 players you can have several groups of friends hanging out, you can have lots of different things going on in the map instead of 2-3.

 

Nothing but good could come if this is true, but I shall keep my hopes in the gutter so as to not be disapointed :p

it's impossible to have more than 18 on current gen apparently. so, they may either increase it for pc if it comes out for pc, or on next gen they might increase it.

MAG is 128vs128. SOCOM games are 16vs16. Battlefield(on consoles) is 12vs12.

 

I really don't know where you got 18 from(probably CoD) but there are plenty of games that have more than 18 players this gen.

Having 32 is completely possible look at games like Defiance that was an Open World MMO look at upcoming Destiny from bungie which is suppose to have an open world co cop experience of course they can do 32 players

They can barely handle the Snapomatic feature. I'll be surprised if 2 people can actually play together much less 16

It won't be 32 players, they've already stated that it will be 16 players. If it was going to be bumped up I'm sure they would announce it, but we all know it won't since they did the testing a long time ago and were content on staying at 16 because that's what worked best without causing problems.

Hopefully 16 can do anything they want smooth as silk on decent connections. But with all the things this game lets you do, 32 is a guarantee lag city even if all 32 players were running high speed cable internet.

16 players is supposedly the max amount that will allow us to have an experience similar to SP - without sacrificing performance.

I feel like this would've been an official announcement, if it were true.
That'd be a major selling point, I'd think.

its been confirmed that it is 16 players. on ps3 and xbox 360. http://www.cinemablend.com/games/GTA-5-Online-Mode-Support-16-Players-Says-Rockstar-59344.html

Even this source stated in one of the first paragraphs that it is going to launch with 16 players. Doesn't that lead you to believe that Rockstar could just want to see how it runs with 16 on both console and server side before the 32 cap is possibly introduced later?

If you think 16 players only on a server will be rubbish and awful then don't play, simple. I for one think 16 will be great for now.

Everyone is forgetting that Rockstar may use a dynamic system like in TDU2. So even though you're playing with 15 other people it'll feel like you're playing with hundreds.
