In a world where RPG is constantly changing form, GTA 5 TSRP has quickly been earning a name for itself in gaming communities. Mixing a well-loved game with RP is proving to be a massive success; with viewership constantly climbing.
Following in NoPixels footsteps, TSRP is an inclusive and collaborative effort amongst some well-known Twitch partners/streamers, Thundershot, LordBalvin, and Vicken52 (you can also find updates on The Squad on Twitter).
The open World GTA 5 TSRP server, played through FiveM, opened up officially on the 24th/25th of April 2021, and was again open on May 1st/2nd, 2021. Players apply through a Google doc currently (linked below), and are expected to remain in character when playing. Initially the server was open Friday through Sunday for ‘Hard Roleplay’ (streaming allowed) and available during the week for ‘Soft Roleplay’ (No streaming or “cannon”). Currently, as of July, 2021, the server is now open Thursdays as well for ‘Hard RP’.

Set in the GTA city of Los Santos, viewers can watch live streams, or vods, from the perspective of the player created characters that do stream on Twitch or upload clips to YouTube, as they navigate the map and interact with other player created characters. From finding a job or buying your first car, to robberies, heists, kidnappings, friendships, mafia, informers, law enforcement, aliens, demons, weddings, funerals, and moles… and any shenanigan you can think of, there is a lot to see and most of it is highly entertaining. The random and off the cuff one liners are guaranteed to make you laugh. And you may even catch the odd touching bro moment.
