Rockstar Games is giving gamers that already own GTA 5 for the PS3 or Xbox 360 more reasons to get the game again for the PS4, Xbox One or PC. Its lure? Exclusive content in the form of new weapons, activities, rewards, and more.
Keep in mind that in addition to the exclusive content available to eligible buyers, the Xbox One, PS4 and PC version of GTA 5 also benefit from better graphics (in particular, a hugely-increased draw-distance), many new songs, new animals, a bumper version of GTA Online and many other enhancements.
The long list of exclusive content includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- New Events & Rewards: Encounter new events happening all across the world, and complete the challenges they present to unlock exclusive new vehicles like the menacing Imponte Duke O’Death and that veritable GTA classic bird of flight, the Dodo seaplane.
- Murder Mystery: As Michael, follow a trail of cryptic clues to unravel a grisly murder mystery. Put the clues together and you’ll unlock two Noir Style Filters, which will give your Story Mode gameplay and Snapmatic photos the feel of a gritty old school crime classic.
- Weapons: The Rail Gun & Hatchet – Obliterate your adversaries with the high-powered, high-velocity Rail Gun. This piece of experimental military technology also has its own set of Shooting Range Challenges at your local Ammu-Nation shooting range. Or hack and slash foes up close and personal with the brutal Hatchet melee weapon.
- Wildlife Photography Challenge: There are new species of animals across Los Santos and Blaine County, and the LS Tourist Board needs someone to document them. As Franklin, catalog unique animal species scattered across the map to unlock the special Kraken Sub.
- Stock Car Races: Win a series of new Stock Car Races to earn unique custom Muscle Cars adorned with logos from some of the companies that made this country great.
- Monkey Mosaics: A mysterious street artist is tagging walls all across town with his simian-inspired silhouettes. Track down and photograph them all to earn new monkey outfits (available to all players) and a special Go Go Monkey Blista exclusively for returning players.
- New Vehicles and More
- Grind up the Los Santos freeways (and over anybody in your path) with the Cheval Marshall monster truck and take to the skies in a faster and more maneuverable Blimp, compliments of Xero Gas.
DON’T MISS: Grand Theft Auto V Runs in 1080p on the PS4
Rockstar says the exclusive content will not be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game. Additionally, players will need a Rockstar Social Club account in order to transfer to the PS4, Xbox One and PC. It is important to note that you will only have one chance to make the transfer, so don’t mess it up.
Grand Theft Auto 5 releases on November 11 on the PS4 and Xbox One, and January 27, 2015 on the PC.
