Grand Theft Auto Online is live now on Xbox 360, VideoGamer.com can confirm. The PlayStation 3 version is also reported to be live.

Players can access the online multiplayer mode by downloading a 59MB Title Update for GTA 5 and selecting the fourth character on their character selection wheel.

GTA Online is a 16-player multiplayer mode that lets players team up to take on heists, challenge others in races, or engage in shoot-outs.

Players are also able to purchase properties, vehicles and weapons using in-game money, or purchase microtransaction cash packs to boost their bank balance.

Rockstar has previously warned that players should expect to find "crashes, glitches and crazy bugs" in the first few weeks of launch while it tweaks the service.

Rockstar is working around the clock to resolve GTA Online launch issues.

Tried several times through the day but each time my session just times out without seeing any gameplay at all. Giving up now, ill try again in a few days, i still have plenty of story to be getting on with anyway.

I did manage to create a character but the menus and the ideas for doing this are pretty rubbish tbh.

Keeps telling me to start the race but the blue circle isn't there so I can't start it. So I just start trouble then run from the cops, levelling my guy up for now.

On 360 it works erratically, initially the Rockstar cloud save server couldn't be accessed, after that it seems to be pot luck whether missions will instantly fail after starting them, but if you just want to steal a car and do a few stickups all that side of things seems to be working fine. I'm sure it'll eventually get better.

Just tried getting on and, unsurprisingly, no success. I created my character and then I continued to time out. I'll try again later, but I'm not expecting success.
