Do You Need PlayStation Plus to Play ‘GTA Online’?

Thankfully, you only need the PlayStation Plus Essential tier to play online with your friends. There are three different tiers to the subscription service now: Essential at $59.99 a year, Extra at $99.99 a year, and Premium at $119.99 a year.

GTA Online lets you play with up to 30 players in one online session — letting you roam San Andreas with many of your friends at once. Unfortunately, the title does not support crossplay, so you can only play with others who are also on a PlayStation console.
