Even after more than eight years, GTA is one of the most popular games on Twitch and Co. and inspires numerous players from all over the world.

Additionally, Grand Theft Auto V has been one of the most popular categories on Twitch for many months now, and many players are now guaranteed to ask what is so special about such an old game and what makes it so popular. The reason for this is obvious. For example, well-known streamers play the game not as a standard version, but in the popular role-playing mode.

What is GTA RP?

Actually, GTA 5 stands for pure chaos and lots of action. Cheaters including flying motorcycles and also alien gangs provide a lot of explosive material and variety in Los Santos. Alternative role-playing servers, which have been available since the beginning of 2017, show that things can be completely different. On these servers, real life can be simulated. But for whom is the game suitable, what options are offered to players and what is there to discover?

GTA RP, or roleplay, is the multiplayer mod for the computer. This special mode can be accessed and played via a game client, for example. But beware, not all servers are freely accessible, so it may be that you have to register online first. There are servers with and without waiting lists.

Let's go

But what happens when it finally starts? In this case, a character is created with the appropriate background story. Players thus play one of the well-known NPCs from GTA V. For example, you can take on the part of a business manager, join the police or fire department, or be a cab driver to bring other players to their destination. There are hardly any limits to your own imagination and you can slip into a role that you have always found interesting. The development of the person in the game goes on and on. This is not only in the business area, but also in terms of relationships with other players.

However, it is required that you behave as you would in real life. In plain language, this means that fellow players should always abide by the rules and that the health and integrity of their own role is always in focus. In addition, you should also abide by the laws and not simply kill other players or harm them in any other way.

A good example is the car accident where you accidentally hit someone. So instead of driving on, the police are called along with an ambulance.

Our conclusion - variety guaranteed

If you want to build a second, virtual life away from the current reality, GTA RP is the right choice. Here there are so many opportunities to build up your very own role, meet new people and gradually develop. Here, players start as a "nobody" but can make a name for themselves, become rich and infamous, or build a normal life after all. Due to the many possibilities, we are sure that there won't be any boredom in this completely different GTA. Mods are available on all servers, which also integrate new professions and mechanics into the game.
