Grand Theft Auto Online is an online multiplayer action game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. It was released on October 1, 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and November 18, 2014 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and April 14, 2015 for Microsoft Windows. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions are scheduled for release in late 2021. The game is the online component of Grand Theft Auto V. In the fictional state of San Andreas (based in Southern California), Grand Theft Auto Online allows 30 players to explore the open world and participate in cooperative or competitive games. The Update of Heists, which added five multi-game missions with large withdrawals requiring teams of 4 players, was a highly anticipated feature of Grand Theft Auto Online.   In addition to the Heists, the update also introduced opposing modes and several new weapons and vehicles. After numerous delays, the Heists update was released on March 10, 2015 and suffered initial technical difficulties due to increased user usage.  Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1, released on June 10, added new vehicles, clothing and weapon stickers.
Some gameplay features have also been affected, such as a redesign of in-game car sites, the addition of a first-person car hood camera in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, and the ability to bike targets using lock-on missiles, including minor modifications.  Ill-Dieu Gains Part 2, released on July 8, added vehicles and weapons. He also added the radio station The Lab, previously exclusive for the Windows version of the game, to all other versions. It was also the latest update for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, referring to hardware restrictions.  The Freemode Events update was launched on September 15 and added new modes and activities. In addition, the Rockstar Editor and Director mode, which was previously exclusive to the Windows version of the game, has been added to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions.  and I must say that I don`t even remember that in September 2015, Rockstar agreed to a licensing agreement that announced that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the online mode were no longer receiving additional content due to constraints on console capacity.  This was criticized by Forbes author Paul Tassi, who felt that Rockstar “decoupled a lot of potential customers” who continued to play on older systems, adding that the reissues on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One lacked additional content.  A standalone version of Grand Theft Auto Online will be released at the end of 2021 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. it will be free on the first for the first three months.
 In Grand Theft Auto Online, players create a new character that is specific to the online world and displays on the screen switch wheel next to the unique player characters Franklin, Michael and Trevor.  Player characters are designed by a genetic process.  The character`s clothes and hairstyles are more controlled.
