Grand Theft Auto V is one of the best-selling games in history, but six years after its release, a new mod which allows roleplaying has taken the game to new heights. Here is how you can try it yourself.

What is GTA RP?

Roleplaying in GTA, more commonly known as GTA RP, involves players creating their own character, rather than playing out the lives of a story mode individual. The multiplayer mod, currently only available on the PC version of Grand Theft Auto, creates a whole new world on the Los Santos map.

Players are able to work as police officers, car dealership owners or even try their hand as criminal judge. On the other hand, gamers can take the risk of being thrown in prison by dealing drugs or joining a gang and engaging in turf wars with rival players on the server.

What is NoPixel?

NoPixel is currently the largest GTA V roleplaying server, used by the majority of top streamers due to its exclusivity – players wanting to join the server are forced to fill out an application before they are accepted.

Top Twitch streamers Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar and Tim ‘Timthetatman’ Betar have both tried their hand at GTA RP on the server playing the characters of Charles Johnson – a drug dealing street racer – and Dale Morris – a fried chicken shop regional manager – with hilarious results.

Eventually, they left the server after weeks of playing, but NoPixel still retains some of the best roleplayers in GTA today.

How to apply for NoPixel?

Applications for NoPixel can be sent through their official website. Though, given the popularity of the server, there is no guessing as to how long it will take to receive a response, with standard whitelisting currently closed.

It’s worth noting that people who donate to the website will have their application reviewed quicker, meaning if you’re serious about getting into RP, it might be worth helping out with some of the costs.

Players can join a motorbike gang and attempt to evade the cops.

How can I play GTA V RP?

With standard whitelisting currently closed for NoPixel, it’s definitely worth trying your hand in a different server to learn the ropes and see if roleplaying is for you.

After downloading FiveM – the mod required to play on customized servers – there are hundreds of places to get started for any types of players regardless of whether you’re looking for casual fun or serious roleplay.

Be sure to follow the rules of each server to ensure you don’t land yourself in hot water.

GTA Online October 29 update: Patch notes

Casino rewards vehicle

Rockstar Games
The Franken Strange will leave people for dead.
This week’s casino car is the ghoulish Franken Strange. Classed as a ‘Sports Classics’ car, this demon on wheels would normally cost you $550, 000.

According to the GTA Wiki website: “The unlikely product of Albany’s design team leafing through a vintage car magazine while in the depths of a masculine overdose. The Franken Stange will make you the envy of goths, emo hipsters and vampire wannabes everywhere. Don’t be fooled by what’s left of its old world charm; the steering linkage may be from 1910, but the engine has just enough horsepower to tear itself (and you) to pieces at the first bump in the road.”

So what are you waiting for? Go and spin to win!
