Grand Theft Auto V Special And Collector’s Edition Available for Pre-Order, First Multiplayer Details

After being tight-lipped for some time, aside from releasing handful of jaw-dropping GTAV screens a few weeks ago, Rockstar has recently revealed the special and collectors edition of their blockbuster sandbox game, Grand Theft Auto V, and has now put them up for pre-order.

What exactly will Rockstar will be including in these special editions you say? According to Rockstar, you can expect the following goodies to be included in your purchase of GTA V if you decide to drop the few extra bucks for it:

  • Blueprint Map
    This exclusive, additional 21.5” x 26.75” map displays a blueprint view of Los Santos and Blaine County. Cryptic markings indicate locations for fast cash and other points of interest for the up-and-coming entrepreneur.

  • Grand Theft Auto V Security Deposit Bag with Logo Key
    Inspired by the heists in Grand Theft Auto V, this custom 10.75” x 8.5” money bag features a pop-up style lock and laser cut logo key to secure important items. The reverse side features a pressed Rockstar Games logo on the security mount with a framed ID window.

Interestingly, the Collectors Edition mentions “custom characters for GTA Online.” It looks like we’ve got our first set of details regarding the game’s multiplayer:  “Get classic Grand Theft Auto characters to use within the Grand Theft Auto Online Character Creation System.”

If you’re not to keen about dropping some extra cash for bonus material without getting a glimpse of it first, Rockstar has released these  images, detailing the extra content:



As an added bonus, Rockstar is also offering the ability to get access to fly the Atomic Blimp (pictured below) if you pre-order any edition of GTA V, Including the standard edition.


The special edition of GTA V will be priced at $79.99 USD while the collectors edition will be available for $149.99 USD at participating retailers and will be available for pickup when the game releases on September 17 for the Xbox 360 and PS3.

    Looks like Rockstar’s pulling out some interesting in-game stuff on top of the normal physical goodies with the special editions, AND, as a bonus, the pre-order incentive doesn’t appear to be something incredibly stupid to have as a pre-order bonus. (Like Metro: Last Light’s Ranger mode, and it being claimed to be THE way to play Metro.)

    Any news on a PC release yet?

    • HelghastUser

      After seeing all the cool PC mods for the GTA IV I have to say that GTA V for PC looks like a good way to go…

  • Yawn

    Looks dumb.

    After seeing the new BF4 screenshots, I can’t see why any normal human being would still be interested in games like GTAV or COD Ghosts.

    • Lufamos

      lol that normal human being didn’t notice this is GTA and it is on current gen.

    • dude why come hate u make people who play BF look fucking stupid

  • leeroy_newman

    I am starting tot hink GTAV will be like Saint Row 3, a shit load of stupid DLC, i dont want to but it the first day anymore, i will wait until people tried it.

    • tot hink ?!!! I liked dude

      • leeroy_newman

        Sorry, english is not my first language, tell me if you see more english mistakes, it will make me learn.

    • DanDustEmOff

      SR3 was a great game.

  • meh the mehhammehd

    Not too bad, not too sure if i like the idea of these mini extras (i’m looking at you micro-transactions), but everyones going to be getting gta5, so why not squeeze some more out of some of us?

  • a snap back? throw in skinny jeans with the signature of lil wayne why don’t ya…

    • Joel Santana

      I actually don’t mind the snap-back cause its more comfortable to wear. At least for me it is, since regular hats are annoying cause of my long hair.

  • James K

    Who wants to fly a blimp anyway?

    • Zwabber046

      I would like to crash the blimp

  • FPS Hobo

    Cheat codes were the best thing about san andreas besides the rest of the gameplay. I just don’t want then to be cunts and lock the trophies if i use a code like they did in GTA IV

  • Zwabber046

    I’m not gonna buy it 🙁 I was hoping it to be on PS4, but probably not, I was gonna say maybe we here something on E3 about it but Rockstar doesn’t go to E3 🙁

  • Someone You Dont Care
