Rockstar has announced any PS3 or Xbox 360 gamers who currently own Grand Theft Auto V and opt to pick up the new versions on PS4, Xbox One or PC will gain access to a wealth of exclusive new activities and rewards, Rewards included some of the best vehicles and guns Rockstar launched yet for the GTA 5.
New events only available to those who have previously owned the game and opted to return will grant access to vehicles like the Imponte Duke O’Death and the classic Dodo seaplane, while a new Michael-centric mission will task you with following a series of clues to solve a murder mystery. Successfully doing so nets you two Noir Style Filters for use in Story Mode and Snapmatic photos.
Franklin will get his own set of activities to participate in via the Wildlife Photography Challenge. New species of animals across the land need to be documented and, as a reward for doing so, you’ll be gifted with the Kraken Sub to use at your leisure. New Stock Car Races, meanwhile, will offer the chance to unlock unique custom Muscle Cars.
Souped-up versions of Los Santos and Blaine County include being able to pick up the experimental Rail Gun, replete with its own set of Ammu-Nation shooting challenges, along with the gory Hatchet melee weapon. On the costume front, tracking down and photographing monkey-inspired graffiti around Los Santos will unlock new Monkey Outfits for all players.
The Cheval Marshal monster truck and a new and more maneuverable Blimp will be available. There’ll also be plenty of classic GTA vehicles and some other surprises for new and old players alike, but Rockstar isn’t planning on revealing them before launch day. Which now we can’t wait for.
All of the above content will be available for returning players regardless of whether they had the PS3 or Xbox 360 version, and they pick up the PS4, Xbox One, or PC editions.
All in-game content given to those who purchased the Special or Collector’s Editions for PS3 and Xbox 360 will be able to carry these bonuses across to the new versions, while anyone who didn’t can purchase them with in-game cash. Created Jobs will carry over to the new systems and, as previously announced, you’ll be able to transfer your GTA Online character to the platform of your choice as long as you have a Social Club account. A word of warning though: this can only be done once.
