“Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition” is now available in stores for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and hits digital platforms, including for PCs, next week, publisher Rockstar Games announced on Friday. The game will cost $84.99 digitally and $79.99 for the physical version.
The game includes the complete “Grand Theft Auto V” story, “Grand Theft Auto Online,” and all existing gameplay upgrades and content, including “The Doomsday Heist,” “Gunrunning,” “Smuggler’s Run,” and “Bikers.”
It also comes with the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack, the fastest way for new “Grand Theft Auto Online” players to jumpstart their criminal empires with the most popular content, plus $1,000,000 bonus cash to spend in “Grand Theft Auto Online” — over $10,000,000 (GTA) in value.
“Grand Theft Auto Online” — the multiplayer component of “Grand Theft Auto V” — went online in 2013. Since its release, “GTA Online” has become Rockstar’s chief money maker with more than 33 million people having logged in over the game’s five years. Rockstar Games’ continued support of “Grand Theft Auto Online” helped make “Grand Theft Auto V” the United States’ best-selling game. The game has shipped more than 85 million copies to retail.The studio regularly rolls out substantial updates, new items, and new modes for the game. Just this week, Rockstar released “The Vespucci Job” for “Grand Theft Auto Online,” a thinly veiled Rockstar take on the movie “The Italian Job.” In the free new mode, players either get behind the wheel of a Vapid Flash GT Sports Car, the Weeny Issi Classic (an in-game take on the Mini Cooper), or fly a Sea Sparrow helicopter. One team tries to flee through a series of checkpoints while the other group tries to stop them.
