GTA 5 RP Server: GTA World, a popular “text based roleplay experience”
GTA World is a roleplay server that has attracted a fair amount of attention lately, so some RP fans might wish to know more about it. It’s essentially an RP server that relies on text to communicate with other players far more than the usual voice chats. Everything still takes place in a GTA 5 engine, so it should still be familiar with players in the roleplaying scene.
This RP server boasts the following as its top features:
- Over 5,000 furniture items
- Over 15 types of businesses
- Over 30 active factions
- Over 50 hangout spots
Aspiring roleplayers will have to use Rage MP to play this game, and they must already own GTA 5 to play GTA World. For those that don’t know, Rage MP is a mod for enabling multiplayer, but it isn’t connected to GTA Online.

GTA World: An RP server heavily reliant on text
GTA World currently boasts over:
- 137,000 users
- 82,000 characters
- 30 active factions
- 1000 businesses
It features primarily English-based texts, and there are usually around 300 to 500 players online at any given time. The main draw it offers over other RP servers is the fact that it relies on text to communicate rather than voice chat. Thus, it might appeal to some players who:
- Don’t have a microphone or don’t want to use it for one reason or another
- Don’t want to hear other players talk (especially children or those with bad microphones)
- Want to try something different from the norm
- Can type quickly
It should be noted that the above trailer doesn’t highlight the text-based roleplaying. However, the following screenshot might give players a more accurate idea.
“Failing to roleplay a situation is strictly forbidden. You’re expected to be roleplaying at all times, If a player breaks the rule during the situation you must finish the roleplay and report later. You must also roleplay any injuries that occur to your character or any accidents that happen when driving, even if you are alone.”
Thus, GTA World is not for players who don’t like roleplaying and are simply looking for a server without an emphasis on voice chat.
As usual, other roleplaying rules apply here; players shouldn’t powergame, metagame, or do anything else that would classify as FailRP. There are a ton of specific rules for players to keep in mind, so any curious gamer should check out the official forums:
This RP server is an active and well-moderated one, while the core concepts are still familiar to fans of other servers. At the very least, some gamers might wish to check it out.
