The second day of IGN's week-long coverage of GTAV brings us a great hands-on preview of what to expect in GTA Online. IGN's Ryan McCaffrey is the first person outside of Rockstar Games to play the "shockingly ambitious" standalone multiplayer mode, and he has described 10 "crazy, awesome" things he saw and did in it.
 
Have a read of the hands-on preview yourself, Ryan says GTA Online "is everything you’ve always dreamed an online GTA should be. It even has elements of persistence, though it’s definitely not an MMO." The preview also included 11 screenshots.

Thanks for posting it, Chris. Even though I didn't care for GTA IV's multiplyer (or GTA 1's multiplayer, or SAMP), this looks like it'll be a blast  :awesome:

Looking even better! I don't care for the hanging out in the apartment/house/mansion etc but everything else looks good.

The variety in this game looks utterly insane. Vehicles, Missions, Characters, Landscapes, Guns -  everything. I can tell i'm going to sink a ton of hours into the online if it hits PC. Probably won't go for an awful lot online on the 360, though.

Was it just me or does the cul-de-sac hint of a nod to SA's Grove Street?

Yup, its now Ballas territory. That picture I linked to matches up with the one posted above. Same lamp posts, and yellow fire hydrant.

I wonder if some of the old characters will be mentioned from time to time in radio or something like Tommy Vercetti, Claude and Joey was in SA..

Not likely. They don't exist in the GTA IV Era.
