The next generation versions of Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online are now available to pre-order on the Xbox and PlayStation stores ahead of its digital release on March 15th.
Pre-order and pre-load info
If you pre-order the game you can download it right away to your console to be ready for when it releases. The store listings confirm the game will unlock at midnight at your country’s earliest local time zone.
GTA Online is now free to claim for PS5 players on the store too. If you claim this within the next 3 months it will be free to keep forever meaning you do not need to purchase the online portion.
Xbox players can also pre-load the game without pre-ordering if they want to by finding the game on the Xbox mobile app and pre-loading the game that way.
These “new versions of GTAV and GTA Online introduce high-end PC visuals to the console experience with new graphics modes featuring up to 4K resolution, a frame rate of up to 60 FPS, improved texture quality, HDR options, and ray tracing — as well as utilizing the technical advancements of the latest console hardware for faster loading times, immersive 3D audio, support for platform-specific features, and more.” Rockstar Games said via their newswire.
Fans are eagerly waiting to play the GTA V Story all over again and GTA Online at 4K with Ray Tracing but also the option to play at 60FPS with reduced resolution.
The next gen versions of GTA V and GTAO will also benefit from the faster loading times thanks to the new consoles. Los Santos and Blaine County will also see “increased population and traffic variety, increased vegetation density, improved lighting quality across shadows, water reflections, and other elements. Improved anti-aliasing, motion-blur, highly detailed new explosions, fire, and much more are also part of this new package.”
