A new edition for the 5 year old game.
Rockstar has announced a new special edition of GTA 5, seemingly aimed at bringing in new players – but don’t expect anything new for existing players.
Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition will be available on Steam, Xbox One and PS4, and comprises the full GTA V package (including the single player game and a fully-updated GTA Online) and a Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack bonus.
This pack seems to be aimed at bringing new players into the series as the Starter Pack gives GTA Online players weapons, properties, and vehicles as well $1,000,000 of in-game currency – a total of $10,000,000 of in-game item value.
The Premium Online Edition costs $79.99 USD / £59.99 / $99.95 AUD for a physical Xbox One or PS4 version or $84.99 USD / £67.99 / $110.34 AUD on Steam.
While bundles including the game and Criminal Enterprise pack have existed for some time, it appears that, on console at least, the Premium Online version is intended to replace the core version of the game by offering more for your money.

GTA 5 holds to the mantle of making more money than any film, book, or game according to an analyst and, as it turns out, is a favourite amongst some celebrities.
