GTA Online fans have found a way to run the game on Xenia!
Ardent fans often come up with innovative methods to find their way around the limitations of a game. Fans of Grand Theft Auto Online might just have stumbled upon a way to play the pre-release version of the game on Xenia, which happens to be an emulator designed for playing Xbox 360 games on PC.
Most players would be aware of the fact that this tool made it possible to play GTA 5. Players, however, didn’t really succeed in configuring or running GTA Online through it. It must be mentioned here that the pre-release version of GTA Online does not feature any content sourced out from the Enhanced or Enhanced and Enhanced ports of the game.
Till April 22, 2023, the GTAV TU10 Online Patched made it possible for players to enjoy the classic version of GTA Online. The game’s official version was pulled out way back in December 16, 2021. There are still many fans who prefer the classic version of the game over its modern avatar.
