Creators from esports organisations S8UL and Velocity Gaming are looking to create content for their fanbases in a new GTA V roleplay server.
Rockstar‘s Grand Theft Auto franchise has long been one of the biggest and most popular titles in the gaming industry. Even though GTA V came out back in 2013 the game is still played by thousands. Following its initial 2013 release, the game then came out in 2014 for PS4 and Xbox One, April 2015 saw its Windows release and in March of last year PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions came out.
It was expected that GTA V would have a long life. However the title is fast approaching a decade since its first release. Despite all the years that have passed, GTA V still stands popular due to it being the latest instalment, although we now know a new game is in the works as leaks revealed character information last year.
More adventures in GTA V
A key aspect to the longevity of GTA V is its online mode where players can roam the map together, take on missions, or battle it out against one another. The mode has seen tons of updates and received additional content throughout its lifecycle. Roleplaying servers are also popular in GTA Online, these servers grant players the ability to join and fully commit to the role of a character.
There are already some popular roleplaying servers such Eclipse RP and MafiaCity RP, these servers allow the player to take on any role they wish and act as their character. This latest partnership from S8UL and Velocity Gaming will see the creation of a new combined server named, Soul City. The server will feature some of India’s biggest creators from both of the two respective squads
Lokesh Jain, Co-founder of S8UL commented on the new source of content creation saying. “We are extremely delighted to officially join forces with Velocity Gaming and kickstart 2023 with a bang. With both organisations boasting some of the country’s top creators this is undoubtedly a remarkable opportunity to produce jaw-dropping content for the fans to engage and excite. Everyone is now looking forward to this association and recording some interesting content together.”
Growing content for the India esports space
This new partnership is intended to boost India’s GTA community and contribute towards the growth of the game. The new server will be a significant step forward in expanding the GTA roleplaying scene in the country. Velocity Gaming contains some of India’s biggest creators such as Rakazone, Tbone, and Pinkcess.
Manoj Kashyap, founder of Velocity Gaming stated that “We have been enjoying our journey with GTA. This is yet another step from us to amp up our game. I am personally super excited about how this is going to unfold. SoulCity is all set to make some amazing content and entertain our audience in more ways than ever before.”
The esports scene in India is looking to see significant growth in the coming years. Despite some speed bumps with the likes of big-name games such as PUBG being banned.
