Will online on GTA V be free for PC do you think or know?

And would there be alot of people playing on the online for PC like there is on xbox 360 guessing by there's usually not as many people playing on PC than consoles on most console to PC games?

Free with microtransactions like it is on consoles. There will be a lot of people playing unless they do squat against cheating like they did with GTA4.

What do you mean by free?

It'll probably be like any other casual game. The first month will be full and popular; then it will die down. They also need to set up some form of anti-cheat. Maybe a colab with Valve and release it with VAC3 enabled.

Free as in free to play but with microtransactions and then large nerfs to all money gains to force people to buy packs of cash.

You know, just like what happened to the 360/PS3 version.

I just had to ask because it is such an ambiguous question. Asking if it is free-to-play makes it sound like there are misconceptions to what Grand Theft Auto Online is. It makes it sound like it is an MMO or something people can play without owning Grand Theft Auto 5.

To the people that haven't played it, it's just a slightly fancier, but still boring, Grand Theft Auto 4 multiplayer mode. Try to lower your hype for it or else you'll be burned.

depends on how the stop the cheating. if they actually stop it then it will be fine but if theres no anticheat then it will be a lot worse than it currently is on the consoles. another thing is a lot of people will be transferring saves from the consoles so will start day 1 with all the weapons and fancy cars and tanks.

If GTA V uses Steamworks, then it will have VAC support. Most people won't want to cheat if that is there as that effects their whole accout.
