Mortal on playing GTA V: “I won’t feel comfortable playing it.”
After the government of India imposed a ban on PUBG Mobile in September 2020, a lot of content creators started to diversify their content by including various games. Likewise, MortaL also started playing different games to diversify his content. Although MortaL has played GTA V on numerous occasions, he did not play it much and often.
Since the past few months, especially after the suspension of Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) in July 2022, the number of concurrent viewers for BGMI-centric content creators has been decreasing. In a recent livestream, MortaL stated that he should try doing something new that his audience will like. Noting this statement, one viewer suggested to MortaL that he should move out of his comfort zone and play GTA V RP, which is a trending title in India. Responding to this, MortaL revealed why he does not play the game. “I won’t feel comfortable playing it; that’s the thing. Nothing is stopping me from playing it, but playing RP requires a different personality. That is something very different. RP is not made for me,” he said.
A viewer asked MortaL if he intends to play on the SOULCITY server, a GTA V RP server, which was created in collaboration between S8UL Esports and Velocity Gaming. Responding to this, MortaL clarified that he does not plan to play on the server anytime soon. l said, “As of now, nothing is planned. I don’t know about the future. As of now, I’m not planning to enter SOULCITY for RP.”
MortaL is one of the most prominent personalities in the India gaming community. MortaL rose to prominence with his gameplay videos of PUBG Mobile and later attracted more attention to himself by dominating the game’s esports scene in 2019. As of writing this article, MortaL has over 6.98 Million subscribers on his YouTube channel.
