GTA Online is one of the most popular multiplayer games, but do you have to pay for PS Plus to play?

GTA Online was released in 2013 and has maintained popularity for almost eight years. While fans of the franchise are begging for GTA 6 news, Rockstar Games continues to update the online service.

New cars, weapons, missions, and more are added regularly through content updates. And with the newfound love for role-playing servers, streamers have kept a broader interest in GTA Online.

Players will have to purchase the GTA 5 base game to access GTA Online, which is regularly on sale on all platforms. However, those playing on PlayStation might have to pay the premium online service fee.

Can you play GTA Online without PS Plus?

The majority of online games on both the PS4 and PS5 require subscriptions to PS Plus to play. However, there are very few exceptions like Fortnite and Rocket League.

Does GTA Online require a PS Plus subscription? Sadly, yes. You won’t be able to access any of GTA Online’s services without the premium online services.

Those playing on an Xbox console will also have to pay for an Xbox Live subscription. Meaning, all console players have to subscribe to their console’s premium online services. Yet, PC players don’t have to worry about any additional online fees.

With more games avoiding these premium service fees, it’s a wonder that GTA Online still requires them. However, many of the role-play servers that streamers play on are PC only. This is due to the ability to mod GTA 5 on PC.

Regardless, GTA Online is becoming more like a service and will likely live beyond the release of GTA 6.

As such, PlayStation users will continue paying for PS Plus unless Rockstar works something out to where the service is not needed for players to experience the world of GTA Online.
