Mark your calendars

Ever since that delightful tease at the end of last month’s Grand Theft Auto V trailer, we’ve been dying to learn more about the game’s multiplayer mode, Grand Theft Auto Online. Fortunately, we’ll be finding out a whole lot on 15th August, when Rockstar Games is set to deploy a new video dedicated to the hotly anticipated feature.

Additional details are unsurprisingly scarce at this stage, but judging by the aforementioned footage, we’re expecting some kind of MMO-esque option where you can wreak havoc with dozens of friends in the sandbox setting of Los Santos. While this was possible in Grand Theft Auto IV to a degree, the whole experience felt a bit flaky.

What are you hoping to see this week? Do you want co-op, standard deathmatch modes, or both? Let us know in the comments section below.
