Rockstar Games announced this morning both a special edition and collector’s edition of their forthcoming heist-focused game, Grand Theft Auto V. Each edition varies in both price and content, but both ensure the inclusion of a variety of physical and in-game goodies… including a (digital) blimp no less.
Grand Theft Auto V Special Edition
The GTA V Special Edition will run you a slick $79.99 and includes a copy of GTA V, a steelbook case with exclusive cover art, a physical blueprint map of Los Santos and Blaine County, a boost for special in-game abilities (see our preview here for more information), the ‘Stunt Plane Trials’ aerial challenges for single player, as well as bonus outfits, tattoos and weapons like the Pistol .50, Bullpup Shotgun and melee Hammer.
Grand Theft Auto V Collector’s Edition
The GTA V Collector’s Edition is pricey, but contains the contents of the Special Edition in addition to some other fancy goodies.
With this edition, you’ll net yourself a security deposit bag with a key, a “snapback cap” (or hat for those less-inclined to use such a word in public), the ability to unlock classic GTA characters and customize them in the Grand Theft Auto Online character creation system, and unique in-game vehicles (1930’s style Hotknife hotrod and a CarbonRS sports bike) and garage property (for storing said vehicles).
The GTA V Collector’s Edition comes packaged in a massive box with cover art-embossed foil covering the top. There were others words like “matte-finish” and “scuff-resistant film lamination” included in the press release, but I don’t think you guys are as into unboxing porn as the rest of the Internet is. But if you are, there’s always this.
All Pre-Order Bonuses
And if you pre-order either of these two editions or the standard retail version, you’ll gain access to the Atomic Blimp vehicle in-game. It’s “the most iconic and leisurely aircraft in the Los Santos skies,” Rockstar says.
Guess you’ll have to pre-order and find out. You have until September 17 to make a decision between an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 copy, dudes and dudettes. Or you could not buy a copy at all… even though it looks freaking boss.
