For a limited time, GTA 5 was available for a discounted price for PlayStation 5 and Xbox One S, thanks to a “special introductory pricing”(opens in new tab). Rockstar’s famous crime ’em up, GTA V, is now half off at $19.99 / £17.49 / AU$29.97 on Xbox One. Meanwhile, PlayStation owners may get the game for $9.99 / £8.75 / AU$14.99 with a 75 percent discount.

You can also get GTA Online for free if you’re a PS5 user who has already played GTA 5’s multiplayer on PS4. Xbox players can’t take advantage of this deal, but they can get the multiplayer component for half price if they choose to play it separately.

After June 14, the post-launch discount period will no longer be available. GTA 5 will return to its full price of $39.99 / £34.99 / AU$59.95 on both systems after that date. In addition, the PlayStation 5 version of GTA Online will be priced at $19.99 (£17.99) or $19.99 (AU$30.95).

In order to take advantage of the discount, you must purchase GTA 5 on the PS Store directly through your console if you have Sony’s newest hardware. You cannot take advantage of the discount on the PS webstore. As a result, people without a PS5 will be unable to purchase the game at a discount to save for a later date.

Xbox users, on the other hand, may purchase the Xbox Series X|S model on the Xbox store’s website.

Is next-gen GTA 5 worth it?

Second time GTA 5 has been released on a new console generation. – GTA 5 Considering how long ago the game was launched, is it truly worth the money? When the price is right, of course, and this post-launch discount surely fills the bill.

Improved visual choices and three play modes for each platform are included in the next-generation edition. The most advanced, Fidelity, has ray tracing and 4K resolutions, but can only run at 30 frames per second. When in Performance mode, elaborate light reflections are sacrificed for a 60fps ceiling, but ultra-HD resolutions are kept; in Performance RT, 60fps with ray-tracing is maintained, but only upscaled 4K images are displayed.

Our experience with the game was enriched by its transformational lighting engine and speedier loading times, which we found particularly impressive. Furthermore, there are a number of new PS5-specific elements that make Los Angeles seem even more authentic thanks to DualSense haptic feedback and adjustable triggers.

That’s a really good deal for $10. It’s a good idea to pre-order Rockstar’s critically praised open-world shooter if you plan on playing it at some time in the future and already own a next-generation system. It’s best to take advantage of the deal while you can.
