Grand Theft Auto V is out on Xbox Series X|S next week, and pre-loading has just gone live! If you've pre-ordered either the full game, or GTA Online, you can download them to your Series X or Series S right now.
The game is about 100gb in size for either version, so you'll need some juicy SSD space to cram this thing onto. If you're not sure whether to triple dip on GTAV, Rockstar is offering up some pretty good launch discounts on Xbox, even if they're not as steep as the PlayStation offerings. Okay, we'll try and explain:
- Grand Theft Auto V Full Game is normally $40/£35 on Xbox Series X|S. However, a launch discount grants you 50% off, making it $20/£17.50.
- GTA Online is normally $20/£18 on Xbox Series X|S. However, a launch discount also grants 50% off, bringing it down to $10/£9.
- Both of these discounts run for roughly three months from launch, through June 14th.
If physical is your preferred way to play, that version launches in April. We've no idea if there's a launch discount for the physical version of GTAV on next-gen, as Rockstar still hasn't said much of anything about the disc launch.
If you do pick up online first and then want to upgrade, it looks like that'll be possible via the game's 'Story Mode' add-on. Pricing for this hasn't been revealed just yet, as players need to own GTA Online to be able to purchase Story Mode. Ah, that clears things up.
Will you be picking up GTAV on next-gen, given these discounts? Let us know below.
