‘Grand Theft Auto V’ Is Ready for Next Gen, So Mark Your Calendars
The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game is coming out Nov. 18, but PC players will have to wait until Jan. 27, 2015. GTA broke records for the fastest entertainment franchise to reach $1 billion in sales; it reached the billion-dollar mark in only three days.
According to Rockstar Games, the new versions include not only improved graphics, but also new activities, weapons and vehicles in the city of Los Santos — a satirical parody of Los Angeles — and more wildlife in the surrounding rural Blaine County. Rockstar also said there will be 100 additional licensed songs on the game’s iconic radio stations.
Players will be able to transfer their save files from the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions of the game to any next-gen platform, even if it is made by a competing console manufacturer.
Players engaging in Grand Theft Auto Online, the game’s multiplayer world, will receive $1,000,000 in in-game currency if they pre-order the game. GTA: Online servers will also boast larger player populations in the next-gen version of the game.
Rockstar released a new trailer to coincide with the release date announcement.
