The intensity of roleplay varies with the server. While some servers are dedicated to hardcore roleplaying, where players can’t even ask for gameplay tips or button functions, others may be a bit more lenient.

Who can play GTA V RP?

GTA V RP is accessible to anyone with a PC copy of GTA V, but it varies significantly from the standard multiplayer mode integrated into Rockstar’s celebrated title. To play this mod, you also need a modified game client, like FiveM or Grand Theft Auto Multiplayer. After installing this, you can join an RP server.

Certain communities also require an invite, which players can earn by demonstrating their roleplaying skills (or gaining recognition in the streaming space). Typically, you’ll need to begin on a ‘prove yourself’ server, but once you excel, you’ll be upgraded to the major leagues.

How to join a GTA V RP Server

Joining a server isn’t overly complex. There are several open servers, but they can be quite chaotic. It’s the invite-only, high-level RP servers that most players aspire to join. To get into these, typically, you have to sign up on their forum or website and then join them in GTA V.

NoPixel runs one of the most popular GTA V RP servers. Due to an overwhelming influx of new players, they’ve closed applications, except for donors. Even for donors, gaining access might take up to a month.

Other high-level servers like TwitchRP, Mafia World, and SSB are also difficult to enter. However, if you prove yourself as a ‘good’ RP player (i.e., maintaining the character and not disrupting others), you should gain access quickly.
