Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition Now Available at Retail; Coming to Digital Next Week

A new iteration of Grand Theft Auto V is headed to stores, with the Premium Online Edition focusing on additional content for GTA Online.

April 20, 2018

Though it released nearly five years ago, Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V has showed little signs of slowing down as it continually has dominated the sales charts month-to-month, and now a new version of the game is out for those that somewhere, somehow don’t have the game yet.

Rockstar Games has announced that a new iteration of GTAV is headed to stores called the Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition. The new version of the game will be available in stores today for PS4 and Xbox One for $79.99, while a digital version will arrive for consoles and PC next week for $84.99.


Overall, the Premium Online Edition includes the “complete Grand Theft Auto V story experience,” while also featuring a host of extra content for Grand Theft Auto Online. Specifically, that includes “all existing gameplay upgrades and content,” with Rockstar mentioning that that would include The Doomsday Heist, Gunrunning, Smuggler’s Run, Bikers, and more. The new version also includes an extra $1,000,000 currency to spend in game on items and more, alongside the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack.

Essentially this collection seems like the “Definitive Edition” of Grand Theft Auto V, and given the roaring success of Grand Theft Auto Online over the past few years, it’s not too surprising to see Rockstar doubling down on catering towards the online mode with the new release that could potentially draw in new players.

Grand Theft Auto V is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
