GTA Online has grown in popularity since its release in 2013 and part of its success is undoubtedly due to the roleplaying servers that the gaming community has designed. YouTubers, streamers and content creators have contributed a lot to making Roleplay in GTA Online a successful thing that is on everyone’s lips.

If you have ever wondered what this roleplaying is about or you want to try it, then in this post we will explain how to play it easily in a few steps and what to do to enter these dedicated servers.


What is and what is GTA Roleplay?

Before getting into the subject, for the most clueless (despite the fact that it is a phenomenon on the Internet), let’s explain what GTA Roleplay is and how it works. Roleplay is a style of game that basically tries to take the personality of a character and get into his skin to interpret him as if we were him or her.

  • In GTA Online Roleplay we assume the identity of a charactercreated by us or not and live his life within a fictional context with other players (either by text or, much better, by voice chat to give it more credibility).
  • Thus, for example, we can inventthat we are an important businessman, a foreigner who does not understand the local language, a mafia woman, etc, etc. Anything we can think of.
  • In turn, the rest of the online players will also be role-playingtheir own characters.
  • The stories, plots and actions are created as we want, but always without leaving our rolesand respecting the rules.
  • This type of Roleplay takes place on dedicated servers for the PC versionof Grand Theft Auto V (GTA Roleplay cannot be played on consoles).

Summing up a lot, you could say that GTA Roleplay is a kind of theater . And since the game is a sandbox that offers thousands of activities, this is a style of game with almost infinite possibilities . It should be added that roleplay is not something that has been invented now, since role-playing is something that is inherited from old board games such as Dungeons & Dragons , but without a doubt it is something that GTA is perfect for.

It should be noted that Rockstar Games did not officially design the Roleplay for GTA Online, but rather it was something out of the imagination of the players and the mod community. However, the company does not prevent roleplaying within the virtual world of Los Santos, so you can play roleplay without fear of being banned .

How to play GTA Roleplay step by step

To be able to play GTA Online Roleplay, the first thing you will necessarily need is to have a copy of Grand Theft Auto V on PC . As you already know, the Online mode is inseparable from GTA V , so first buy the game (and we warn you, it is not worth pirating it or using cracks, it has to be original). The second step is to have a stable internet connection , of course.

Once you have an original copy of GTA V, in order to play Roleplay you will have to install at least the following 3 programs on your PC to have an optimal experience: Steam, FiveM and Discord . Here below we show you how to install them all.

Have a Steam account and be connected

An essential requirement to play GTA Online Roleplay is to have the Steam client installed on your computer . You may already have it if you bought your copy of GTA V from this virtual store. But, whether or not you have GTA V in your Steam library, you will need the program.

Why do we say this? Because Steam must be connected when you run the FiveM client , since these two programs communicate with each other in order to play GTA Roleplay. Therefore, the requirements are these:

  • Download and install the Steam client on your PC (if you don’t already have it).
  • Create a Steam accountand log in.
  • Keep your Steam session open at all timeswhile you have the FiveM client running.

We repeat, it is essential to have your Steam account open while you run or install FiveM, even if your copy of GTA V is running from the Epic Games Launcher or Rockstar Games Launcher client.

How to install FiveM on PC

FiveM is a free add-on client used to connect to modified GTA Online roleplay servers. In this case, we recommend FiveM for being one of the best (although there are other similar options).

In order to install FiveM on your computer, follow these steps :

  • Enter: this official FiveM link .
  • Click on the “Donwload Client”: boxto begin downloading the program.
  • A screen with the terms of service will appear:just click on “Sure, I agree!” to confirm that you want to download it.
  • Then it will open:your computer’s folder explorer so you can save the .exe file.
  • Once you have the file:double click on it to start the installation (with administrator permissions).
  • Follow the instructions of the installer:to download the program and install it completely on your PC.

When you finish installing FiveM, when you open the client for the first time, it will ask you to log in with your Social Club account . You should already have one if you’ve been playing GTA Online on PC before. If you don’t have it yet, you can create it from this link.

Use Discord for roleplay communities

Discord will not only greatly improve your role playing experience and will put you more into your role, since with this program you will be able to communicate by voice chat in the games, but you will also need Discord to be able to enter the GTA Roleplay communities and servers.

  • You can directly use:the web version of Discord .
  • You can also:download the Discord application for desktop, which will surely be more comfortable for you.
  • In either case:do not forget that you need to create a Discord account and be connected to it when you go to play GTA Roleplay.

How to enter GTA Online roleplay servers

Once you have installed the above 3 programs mentioned in this tutorial, you can open FiveM and log in with your Rockstar Social Club account. By doing this the client will launch the game and the FiveM main menu .

  • From the FiveM main menu you must go to the tab titled “Play”, which is at the top of the screen.
  • Here you will see the list of GTA Roleplay serversthat you can join.
  • On the left side of the screen you will find search filtersto find the one you like the most (for example, you can filter by language to enter only servers where they speak the same language as you).

When you find a server that you like, you just have to click on its title and its details screen will open. To be able to enter and start playing, click on the “Connect” button and you will be directed to the world of the server with the other players. As soon as you enter, the first thing you will do is customize your character and give him a role . Be resourceful and, most of all, have a good time!

Whitelist and Roleplay Server Requirements

An important detail must be mentioned and that is that not all GTA Roleplay servers are open to everyone. There are private ones, of course. But, in addition, in the titles of many servers you will see a label that says “Whitelist” . This means that the server administrators have to approve your joining the game before you can join the game.

  • Basically Whitelist is something of a pre-test.
  • It is a method for administrators to confirm in advance that you are going to comply with theserver’s rules . Some servers, for example, do not accept newbies.
  • If you want to join a server with Whitelist, when you try to connect to it, you will be redirected to the Discord pageof that community.
  • Once there you will have to send your requestto be able to enter the server and wait for them to accept you or meet the requirements imposed by that community.

Remember, be good . Many servers take roleplaying seriously, so it is generally important to have good writing, respect for others, abide by the rules, and be active. Everything is to keep fiction alive and everyone can have fun.
