Rockstar Games finally revealed the launch time for Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto Online, on Monday and long with details on its relation to the PS3 and Xbox 360 game's story mode.
Grand Theft Auto Online will launch at approximately 7 a.m. EST on Tuesday, Oct 1 when a title update for the game becomes available via Xbox LIVE and PSN. Once the update is downloaded to your system, you'll be able to jump into multiplayer by choosing the bottom slot on the character selection wheel in-game.
As for when Grand Theft Auto Online takes place in comparison to the story line of GTA V, Rockstar Games confirmed that it takes "a few months" prior to the events in the story. How that relates with various in-game characters such as Lester and Lamar will have to wait as Rockstar Games plans to constantly add to the number of jobs that will be available to take on.
