Grand Theft Auto V Introduces Crew Hierarchies

With Grand Theft Auto Online continuing the Social Club Crews you may or may not have formed for Max Payne 3, Rockstar has announced 'Crew Hierarchies', which will give you the chance to whip your Crew into shape by enabling Crew Leaders to assign special ranks for their members based on a number of factors.
Leaders can have their most loyal members assigned to the role of commisioner, while underlings will fall under other tiers, like lieutenant, representatives and muscle. Here's how it all breaks down:
- Commissioners: The Crew’s most trusted member(s) - that essential right-hand man or woman that the Leader relies on for Vice Presidential advisement and executive action. Commissioners have the power to manage and administrate all aspects of the Crew on behalf of the Leader, including the ability to promote members internally or invite new members in.
- Lieutenants: Made members with specific privileges to keep the Crew in check and hand out promotions or demotions amongst sub-ordinate ranks. Crew Representatives and the mob of Muscle would be wise to keep their Lieutenants (and above) sweet.
- Representatives: A tier of Crew members who have shown and proved their commitment to the clique - whether with ace performance in competitive modes, or just by rocking their Crew's emblem faithfully since day one. Crew Leaders can assign these special players as Representatives who will have basic permissions to aid recruitment efforts.
- Muscle: The rank-and-file mob of Crew members who are happy to play their position of causing some havoc Online, doing their Crew's emblem justice and fighting for its good name. Muscle-level members may not have nor want any administrative power but they're often the heart and soul of what makes your Crew fearsome. Ambitious Muscle who are looking to prove themselves to the Crew Leader and rise up the ranks may even prove a threat to their Crew superiors, if any are deemed to be slacking on their responsibilities or performance.
Crew Leaders and Commissioners can assign as many members as they like to which ever tier in the Crew they want. All they have to do is head to the Crew Management page on the R* Social Club site, and click on 'Hierarchy'. Your rank within your Crew will be represented by the length of a coloured bar visible in GTA Online. The longer the bar, the higher your standing. You can set the colour of the bar on the same Crew Management page.
In other Grand Theft Auto V news, the leaked soundtrack reveals that the game will contain 15 radio stations with over 240 tracks, with a dynamic original score that will kick in at key moments during the story. And finally, a new Grand Theft Auto V trailer will debut later today, at 11AM Eastern. You'll be able to get it here.
