More Details on GTAV’s Special Editions Revealed


Rockstar has revealed more information about the Special Edition and Collectors Edition of their upcoming game, Grand Theft Auto V, revealing extra bonuses that gamers will receive for both the single player game and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Owners of the special editions will have access to three exclusive weapons, featuring their own unique skins, upgrades and attachments – the .50 Caliber Pistol, Bullpup Shotgun and the Hammer. Each of these weapons will be available through the Ammu-Nation in-game shops throughout the city of Los Santos.

What good criminal doesn’t enjoy spending their hard-earned money on clothes? Come on, even crime lords need to look good. Each of the main three characters; Michael, Franklin and Trevor, will receive special clothing options. Each character will gain an additional outfit, a special article of clothing (shirt, hoodie and jacket) a unique hair cut, facial hair and tattoos. In addition to those wonderful wardrobe additions, each character will also receive a 20% discount at all clothing stores in the game.


Finally, each of the main characters will receive a 25% boost to the regeneration of their special ability, allowing you to cause even more havoc on the streets. Trevor can be sent into a rage where he is able to deal out double the damage and will only receive half damage while he is in rage mode. Franklin can slow down time while driving to take sharp turns at high speeds and dodge through dense traffic. Michael is skilled at shooting all things and he is able to slow down time to make it easier to dispatch with his enemies.

Fly through the country side of Blaine County and the city streets of Los Santos in five different Stunt Plane Trials that are exclusive to the special editions. Race against your friends to see who can achieve the best times, all vying for the top spot on the leaderboard.

On top of the single player bonuses, ownership of one of the special editions of the game will also give you special benefits in Grand Theft Auto Online.

Creating your own unique character within the Grand Theft Auto Online universe just got a lot easier with the inclusion of the special edition exclusive custom character creation tool. Create your character based on your parent’s nationality and even decide on which genes are more dominant. On top of that, you will also be able to dictate how much time in a day your character devotes to various activities, like; family time, crimes and running amok. If you have ordered the Collectors Edition, you will be able to select past Grand Theft Auto characters as your parents – Niko Bellic (GTAIV), Claude (GTAIII) and Misty (GTAIII).


Finally, Collectors Edition owners will also receive unique vehicles and garage property in Grand Theft Auto Online. The CarbonRS sports bike will be made available in your garage as well as the Hotknife – an open framed ’30s hotrod.
