Well, it’s official. Grand Theft Auto Online is now available for download. After a year of rumors, speculation, and eager anticipation from gamers, the day has finally come. Rockstar Games has officially released Grand Theft Auto Online. So, what is the big deal? Let’s begin by taking a trip back in time to see how we got here. …
The Early Years
It all started way back in the 1980s, when a man named Sid Cohen invented the first video game console. It was an incredible advance compared to previous video game consoles at the time because it had the processing power to handle graphics and sound. He called it the “Sid Cohen Mega-Console.” The concept was so groundbreaking that it actually made its way to the United State Patent office, where it was granted the patent number 4,663,866 on February 5th, 1987.
Video game consoles evolved a great deal over the next few years. By the early 90s, game consoles had more or less settled down to two major versions: the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis. In 1994, the first true mass-market video game console was released, and it changed everything: the Nintendo 64. It was the culmination of everything that came before it. The Nintendo 64 had the power of a roomful of computers packed into an easy-to-use, easy-to-store console. As a result, it became the golden standard for video game consoles for the next several years. The industry even gave it a name: The Golden Era.
The Revival Of Compact Consoles
In the middle of the 2010s, people started noticing a strange phenomenon. Gamers were starting to buy smaller and smaller devices, both mobile and otherwise, to play their games on. The move made complete sense. Mobile game development had become so incredibly accessible that even small teams with limited budgets could create full games that looked and played almost exactly like the big budgeted consoles from the 2000s. Naturally, this led to an entire market of boutique game consoles that catered to the shrinking audiences of mobile gamers. The Xbox One S, PlayStation VR, and the Nintendo Switch are just a few examples of how the market reacted to the shrinking device size gap.
The Epic Saga Of Grand Theft Auto Online
It was a golden era for video game fans. For the first time in years, the market offered gamers a range of devices that fit comfortably in their hands. Mobile gamers had their consoles, and traditional gamers had their big-budgeted consoles from the previous generation. What they didn’t have was a new game to play on their devices. Rockstar Games saw this as a perfect opportunity and decided to cash in. In April 2018, Grand Theft Auto Online was officially announced for the Xbox One. The release date was set for October 18th, 2018.
Grand Theft Auto is widely regarded as one of the greatest games of all time. It’s been a staple of the popular culture and is often credited with creating a new gaming sub-genre: the MMO. The game introduced players to a world where they could explore a massive open-world and do whatever they wanted. The world was filled with cars, trucks, and other motor vehicles, and players could steal them all and use them to their heart’s content. Naturally, this made the game incredibly popular and lead to many copycats and spin-offs, the most notable being Horizon Zero Dawn and Red Dead Redemption.
What Is Grand Theft Auto Online?
Grand Theft Auto Online is a massively multiplayer online game that was initially released for the Xbox One and later made available for the PS4. It is the culmination of everything that came before. The game features all of the elements that made Grand Theft Auto one of the most beloved and popular games of all time: massive open-worlds, heists, robberies, and fights with other players. In addition, it features competitive and cooperative gameplay, allowing players to team up and compete against other teams or work together to accomplish common goals. It also features a range of different characters to choose from, each with their own set of skills and abilities, as well as numerous story missions and side-quests. What’s not to love?
