Seeing as though today is the day, and I was removed from it yesterday, I assume my Non Disclosure Agreement has now lapsed and can say that I was on the Friends and Family Beta for the last couple of weeks.
I won't say too much in case I still get in to trouble and also wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone, but once any inevitable glitches are ironed out and servers are full, everybody looking forward to this will not be disappointed. At least I don't think so, I had a great time on it when I had spare time away from the fantastic single player.
It takes the best elements of Red Dead multiplayer and goes far beyond them, it adds a great structure to the multiplayer world which was missing from GTA IV, and it eases you in to it quickly but relatively gently, though I will say if playing on a public server be prepared to go 'passive', at least until you know the ropes.
It's such good fun and Rockstar have masterfully made the multiplayer feel very much like an extension of the single player, in that there's still plenty to do / fun to be had even when playing solo.... of course it's much more fun with a few people in there with you.
