GTA V special and collector’s editions revealed
Rockstar Games has revealed the two booty-filled editions that will accompany the standard edition of GTA V in September.
Revealed via an announcement on the Rockstar Games Newswire, GTA V will be available in a Special Edition and glitzy Collector’s Edition – both of which are available for pre-order from today.
The content-heavy editions will include the following (as revealed on the Rockstar website):
“The Grand Theft Auto V Special Edition includes:
- Full retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V
- Collectible SteelBook with Exclusive Artwork – This special SteelBook features double-sided, never-before-seen artwork of Michael, Trevor and Franklin. Custom color and metallic treatments bring out the detail of the artwork created exclusively for this SteelBook.
- 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.
- Special Ability Boost – Michael, Franklin and Trevor each have a unique special ability. With this boost, the special ability bar will generate 25% faster.
- Stunt Plane Trials – Single player Stunt Plane Trials let you take on additional aerial challenges spread throughout Los Santos and Blaine County.
- Bonus Outfits, Tattoos and More – Michael, Franklin and Trevor get bonus outfits in their wardrobes, character specific tattoos at tattoo parlors, and special deals from shopkeepers across Los Santos and Blaine County.
- Additional Weapons – When visiting Ammunation stores in single player, merchants will have special weapons in their inventory available for free: the Pistol .50, Bullpup Shotgun and melee Hammer.”
The Collector’s Edition, however, will feature the following (again, as presented on the Rockstar Newswire):
“The Grand Theft Auto V Collector’s Edition includes all the contents of Grand Theft Auto V Special Edition as described above plus:
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.
Grand Theft Auto V New Era 9FIFTY™ Snapback Cap – This exclusive New Era 9FIFTY™ cap features an embroidered Los Santos logo on the front, a stitched, black Rockstar Games logo on the wearer’s left side, a Grand Theft Auto ‘V’ logo applique on the opposite side, and snapback closure for an adjustable fit.
Custom Characters for Grand Theft Auto Online – Get classic Grand Theft Auto characters to use within the Grand Theft Auto Online Character Creation System.
Unique Vehicles and Garage Property – Players will instantly receive a garage to store custom vehicles. In single player, the garage will be stocked with the 1930’s style Hotknife hotrod and the CarbonRS sports bike. In Grand Theft Auto Online, players will get the high-end Khamelion electric car.”
The Collector’s Edition will also come in a nifty black box that’s “foil embossed” with a “matte, scuff-resistant film lamination”. Who says Rockstar don’t know how to party, ah?
And, for those that pre-order GTA V (including the Special, Collector’s and standard retail editions), you’ll get access to the Atomic Blimp vehicle as well. Rockstar also confirmed that any pre-orders made prior to this announcement will also receive access to the blimp vehicle.
Grand Theft Auto V will release worldwide on September 17. You can pre-order your copy of GTA V via the Rockstar website, but expect retailers to have their own links (no doubt with additional exclusive content) up in due time. Looking for more GTA goodness?
