Grand Theft V is finally coming to new-gen consoles and PC.
Rockstar Games will release the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game on November 18th, just in time for the holidays. The original game launched on PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 17th, 2013.
The PC version isn’t landing until January 27th, 2015.
Rockstar first announced the new-gen version at E3 this summer.
Grand Theft Auto V on PS4, Xbox One and PC will feature “a range of major visual and technical upgrades” according to Rockstar, as well as higher draw distances, denser traffic, a new foliage system, and enhanced damage and weather effects, among other improvements.
The game will also feature new activities, weapons, wildlife and vehicles.
Grand Theft Auto V for PS4, Xbox One and PC will come with over 100 new songs and DJ mixes on the game’s 17 radio stations. This is particularly good news since many of the funniest moments in the game take place on the air.
Returning players who purchased the game on PS3 and Xbox 360 will get some exclusive perks if they upgrade to the new-gen or PC version, including rare versions of classic GTA vehicles from earlier games including the Dukes, the Dodo Seaplane, and a better Blimp. They’ll also be privy to wildlife photography, new shooting range challenges, new weapons and more.
Meanwhile, if you preorder the game—which, as with the PS4 version of The Last of Us, actually seems like a pretty safe bet—you’ll get $1,000,000 in-game cash to spend in the online portion of the game, aptly titled Grand Theft Auto Online.
GTA Online will also feature some improvements, including increased player count from 16 to 30 players and prettier graphics.
Players can also transfer their GTA Online characters and progress from the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game to either new-gen console or PC.
The trailer—which was captured on PS4—really, really makes me want to play Grand Theft Auto V again. But I’m going to wait until it lands on PS4—I’m sure it will be lovely on both systems, but I’m accustomed to playing the series on PlayStation and have no reason to change now—play the heck out of it, and then possibly play it again when it comes to PC if there’s any distinct improvements to the PC release.
Here’s the trailer:
