Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V has been successful even after its release way back in 2013. A part of its lasting popularity after all these years is due to NoPixel, a huge community dedicated to GTA RP (roleplay) where gamers create a persona and act in-character within the game’s city.
NoPixel 3.0 brings all new features to the server, including venue changes, adaptive gameplay, and a more diverse way to earn cash while making your character’s name known in the city. Here’s the trailer for NoPixel 3.0 if you want the bigger picture.
Yesterday marked the release of NoPixel 3.0 and many gaming celebrities including xQc, Sodapoppin, and Shroud (among so many more) have been streaming the new NoPixel 3.0 GTA RP server, and if the hype is as big as it was when NoPixel first became popular, this will be sure to make waves throughout the gaming community. There was a peak of about 423,000 viewers on its launch on the Grand Theft Auto V Twitch directory.
Rockstar has been consistent in its history with choosing to not support its modding community (those who modify the game and add new creative ways to play). I’m interested to see if Rockstar may choose to finally embrace community-made additions to its most popular game, like offering modders developer tools to better create within the game, or if Rockstar will continue to turn a blind eye to what has been such a huge part of the games success all these years after its release.
As far as regular players looking to get into GTA RP, NoPixel is selective with who they allow into its servers, but there are sign-ups that allow gamers to explore the story which the community creates. Good luck on your applications, and until then—make sure to tune into the GTA RP Twitch streams to catch up on what stories are being created!
