GTA 5 On Xbox Game Pass: How To Download The Correct Version For Your Console

The incredible Grand Theft Auto V arrives back on Xbox Game Pass today, and this time Rockstar is even bringing us the next-gen version of the title, which means there are multiple editions included as part of the subscription service.

The question is, which version are you actually supposed to download for your console?!

Here's what we suggest. Firstly, you'll want to go to the 'Recently Added' selection of the Xbox Game Pass library on your Xbox One, Xbox Series S or Xbox Series X by following these instructions:

  • Go to 'My Games & Apps'
  • Scroll down to 'Apps' and hit 'Xbox Game Pass'
  • Scroll down to 'Recently Added'

In here, you'll see two separate versions of Grand Theft Auto V. One of them has a gold boundary and "Xbox Series X|S" in brackets, so this is the one you'll want to download if you're on either an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S. By downloading this version of the game, you'll get the most recent versions of both the Story Mode and GTA Online.

If you're on an Xbox One, you'll simply want to download the version that's called "Grand Theft Auto V", with no mention of any consoles in brackets. This will download the Xbox One version of the Story Mode along with GTA Online.

Update: If you're running into an issue where you're seeing "Get Game Pass" even though you're already subscribed to the service, you're not alone! This seems to be a Microsoft Store bug that multiple players are running into. To solve it, try restarting your console by holding in the guide button on your controller, followed by "Restart Console". Otherwise, you may want to try installing the game via the Xbox mobile app on Android or iOS, although we can't yet verify whether this is an effective solution.
