If Grand Theft Auto 6 Features Co-Op, it Should Also Offer Players the Opposite End of the Coin
Grand Theft Auto 6 is one of the most-anticipated games ever, so it's not surprising that talk about it is so popular. Many people have made guesses about what the game will be like based on what they've heard about it, either from the fans of the series as a whole or from the recent leaks of information about the game that has gotten a lot of attention.
Obviously, Grand Theft Auto 6 will have to add a lot to what came before it in 2013. One of the most obvious ways it could do this would be to make its main story more involved. Grand Theft Auto 5's story mode could only be played by one person at a time. This gave GTA 6 the chance to add an extra co-op part to its own story. If this is true for the much-anticipated game, Rockstar would do well to add a more competitive element to online play for the story mode, giving players a taste of both sides of the game.
The Potential For Co-op in Grand Theft Auto 6
Story mode co-op play has never been done in the GTA series before, so it's easy to see how innovative and ground-breaking it could be in Grand Theft Auto 6. Even though the GTA series is known for having multiple main characters in single-player games, new leaks about GTA 6 suggest that the game will have a more personal two-protagonist approach, which is great for co-op play.
This could let players take on the game's story with a friend, each controlling one of the game's two reported main characters in co-op mode. Even though this would be a great choice to add to Grand Theft Auto 6, Rockstar would be making a mistake if they didn't also make story mode co-op more competitive and hostile if they add it at all.
The Other Side of Grand Theft Auto 6's Co-op
Grand Theft Auto's online mode has become very popular in recent years, mostly because of Grand Theft Auto Online and how well it has been doing. One of the best things about Grand Theft Auto Online is that it gives the player a lot of freedom. In most game modes, the player can choose between team-based co-op play and head-to-head PvP.
In this way, Grand Theft Auto 6's possible co-op mode should follow the same rules as GTA Online, giving players the full PvP vs. PvE experience. Grand Theft Auto 6's co-op mode could be made more competitive by having players race against each other on the street as part of the game's story. Players could also choose to fight against each other for control of different parts of the city, with lucrative rewards for the winner.
Teams of co-op partners could also go up against each other in things like heists, where they could try to sabotage other teams or steal their loot. This would give optional co-op play a more real level of risk vs. benefit. Even though dedicated story mode co-op might seem like a risky move for Grand Theft Auto 6, the success of GTA Online and its effect on the franchise's character make it the next obvious step for the series to add this kind of co-op play.
