Exclusive items and activities announced for GTA 5 players upgrading to PC, PS4, Xbox One

Rockstar has announced Grand Theft Auto 5 owners who upgrade to the PC, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version will receive exclusive items and activities.

Here's the list straight from Rockstar:


  • New Events & Rewards: Encounter new events happening all across the world, and complete the challenges they present to unlock exclusive new vehicles like the menacing Imponte Duke O’Death and that veritable GTA classic bird of flight, the Dodo seaplane.


  • The Imponte Duke O'Death: As you might expect, when you first stumble upon this near-indestructible mayhem machine, trouble will follow. Deal with it judiciously and this beauty’s all yours.


  • Murder Mystery: As Michael, follow a trail of cryptic clues to unravel a grisly murder mystery. Put the clues together and you'll unlock two Noir Style Filters, which will give your Story Mode gameplay and Snapmatic photos the feel of a gritty old school crime classic.

  • Weapons: The Rail Gun & Hatchet: Obliterate your adversaries with the high-powered, high-velocity Rail Gun. This piece of experimental military technology also has its own set of Shooting Range Challenges at your local Ammu-Nation shooting range. Or hack and slash foes up close and personal with the brutal Hatchet melee weapon.


  • Wildlife Photography Challenge: There are new species of animals across Los Santos and Blaine County, and the LS Tourist Board needs someone to document them. As Franklin, catalog unique animal species scattered across the map to unlock the special Kraken Sub.


  • Stock Car Races: Win a series of new Stock Car Races to earn unique custom Muscle Cars adorned with logos from some of the companies that made this country great.


  • Monkey Mosaics: A mysterious street artist is tagging walls all across town with his simian-inspired silhouettes. Track down and photograph them all to earn new monkey outfits (available to all players) and a special Go Go Monkey Blista exclusively for returning players.


  • New Vehicles and More: Grind up the Los Santos freeways (and over anybody in your path) with the Cheval Marshall monster truck and take to the skies in a faster and more maneuverable Blimp, compliments of Xero Gas.

"There will also be a bounty of content for all players, new and returning, to discover - including a fleet of classic GTA vehicles and a few more surprises we've got planned that you’ll have to discover for yourself come game day," said the firm.

"And as previously announced, current GTA Online players on PS3 and Xbox 360 will be able to pick up where they left off, transferring their characters and progression seamlessly to their choice of PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC - but a Social Club membership is required."

In addition, those who pre-order will receive a bonus of GTA$1M. This figure includes $500k for Story Mode and $500k for use in Grand Theft Auto Online.

More details are available through Rockstar Newswire.

GTA 5 releases on PS4 and Xbox One November 18 and will release on PC January 27.
