The pandemic has dampened spirits the world over. Trapped within our homes with limited physical contact with the outside world has been rough on not only individuals but also governments at large. Everyone has had to change how they do things to accommodate the new world order.
In such a situation, it is not unusual to want a taste of the normal. In this situation, the world of Grand Theft Auto Roleplay really shines. More than usual, too. And in this article, we will be taking a look at why it’s so rewarding and how you can get into it. So, without further ado, here we go again!
GTA Roleplay is a multiplayer mod that allows a large number of users to join in and play together at the same time. If you download and install this mod, you will be able to play as one of the many people who inhabit the city of Los Santos.
This is appealing for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is the opportunity to witness the development and evolution of your own character as you play. It’s similar to the video game The Sims. Just a little bit better, and with guns and automobiles.
It’s referred to as GTA Roleplay since players are encouraged to act out the lives of their fictional characters in GTA Online. They establish friends, go out, purchase houses, drive vehicles, and make decisions from the point of view of their respective personas.
These actions then have an impact on the larger world of Los Santos as a whole, granting the players a great deal of agency and power. GTA 5 Grand is so popular because it allows individuals to live out a very specific form of fantasy during these difficult times. This is why the game receives so much traffic.
It should be quite evident now why people are so taken with this mod. In a world beset by restrictions, Los Santos offers everyone playing a chance to be free. The GTA games have always been about player agency and the ability to finish objectives in many ways. GTA V, in particular, is the perfect representation of this.
In the single-player version, you can take control of three characters to do heists and other story missions. In the RP, you can still do all of this, with the added dimension of also having a life. Create your own crew or gang, rob banks with your friends, get into shootouts. The sky is the limit. So long as you have fun without hampering the gaming experience of others, you are doing your job.
It is not difficult to join a server. There are a few open servers, but they can act as if they’re in the Wild West. Everyone wants to get onto the whitelist, high-level RP servers. These are the ones that require invitations; you usually begin by signing up for their forum or website, then join them in GTA V.
NoPixel runs one of the most popular GTA V roleplay servers. Because of the large number of new players, they’ve closed the application process, and it’s still closed unless you’re a donor. Even then, getting access could take up to a month.
TwitchRP, Mafia World, and SSB are among the others. These are still high-level servers that are difficult to gain access to. However, if you demonstrate that you are a “good” RP player (i.e., stay in character and don’t ruin it for others), you should get in soon enough.
However, if you don’t want to wait in line for however long, then you can always pay to get in. Depending on what tier of play you want to get into, there is a separate price. Below are listed the prices for joining NoPixel’s GTA RP server:
- Tier 1: 30 USD
- Tier 2: 100 USD
- Tier 3: 250 USD
- Tier 4: 500 USD
- Tier 5: 1,000 USD
Paying yourself to play will not be for everyone, but the option is still available for those who want it badly enough. This should give you an idea of what it is likely to cost to get into other servers as well. Depending on this information, you can decide which server is most worth it.
GTA RP is a wonderful social experience, allowing people to live a life they cannot live otherwise. It is freedom of the kind that beckons and entices, and it is always worthwhile to accept this invitation and allow yourself a distraction during these trying times. Whatever you decide to be in Los Santos, just make sure you have fun!
