PC Multiplayer - What will it be like (POLL)

Ok, so as i have read r* have expanded the multiplayer feature of the game on the pc version so its a lot better due to general pc users having a better internet connection than console gamers. (Makes sense)

Thing is though what will the number be this time... i doubt it will be 34 i even doubt it will be 50 i would say about 60 but forget about that until the time comes though...

the thing im getting at here is what will you prefer to play on?

A SAMP like unofficial multiplayer scene with roleplay and possibly more players and commands etc; or the offical on with less commands and the standard free roam which takes place on the console editions...

I personally think that a chat function is in order for the pc release, just like samp has, also i think i will be play the official multiplayer until someone creates an unofficial mod which will make it better...

I dont know its all in the air at the moment with the ecstasy of the game coming to pc but i really dont know what do you think the multiplayer will be like?

Will it be better than the console versions, worse .

It would be good to have multiplayer on pc but to me i think the multiplayer on the consoles and pc is the same thing except the consoles you can use controller's samething for pc except it's a mouse.

You gave very bias options. Personally I would have included a "I think they'll be the same/similar" option.

Haha, yeah! Thats what I thought as well.

Edit: I vote for still unsure as that is the only reasonable unbias option.

Ash and ChandlerBing: no need to try to provoke people like that. Even though california6066 has a history with IV bashing, your comments were uncalled for in this thread.

As far as my stance on this topic goes, I voted "still unsure". On the one hand, you have the theoretical PC-amounts of people on one server, on the other hand you have the possibility of R* fucking up the netcode causing 64-person PC multiplayer to run like ass and console multiplayer to be preferable. Then there's also the possibility that a bad job is done optimising the performance of the game for PC, and not many people can run the game as well as on a console to begin with.

I think it will be as good as the consoles. I don't think they would make the PC version way better without updating the consoles.

Well they will be the exact same I think. Only difference I could see happening is them adding a game filter and server selection. That will really be the only difference.

It has been officially announced that multiplayer will be expanded for the PC version. To what degree, we can only guess, but since it's the only thing we know for sure about the PC version right now we can be sure it's at least something.
