The first pricing details for the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 versions of Grand Theft Auto V have been revealed, with the game set to release with an introductory 50% discount.
While Rockstar hasn’t officially communicated new-gen pricing details ahead of the game’s release on March 15, pre-purchasing is available from March 8, which has now arrived in Australia, revealing how much the title will cost there.
As with previously released versions of the game, GTA V on Xbox Series X/S and PS5 includes access to Grand Theft Auto Online. However, the game will also be released alongside a new standalone version of GTA Online.
UPDATE: PlayStation 5 owners will only have to spend £8.75 / $9.99, whereas Xbox Series X/S owners will have to spend double at £17.49 / $19.99.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: On Xbox Series X/S, the Xbox Australia website lists GTA V for 50% off at AUD $29.98 ($22 USD / £16.50) until June 14, when the price will increase to AUD $59.95 ($44 USD / £33).
And the Xbox website lists the new standalone version of Grand Theft Auto Online as being “on sale” for Xbox Series X/S for AUD $15.48.
While the PlayStation website page for GTA V has yet to be updated with pricing details, it’s likely Sony will offer a similar discount considering it has a promotional deal for Grand Theft Auto Online, which will be available free for three months from launch exclusively for PS5 players with a PlayStation Plus subscription.
One social media user in Australia has claimed the PS5 version of GTA V will be priced at AUD $14.99 at release, with the special introductory price available until June 14.
VGC has contacted Rockstar to ask about GTA V and Grand Theft Auto Online pricing ahead of US and European pre-orders going live on March 8.
Rockstar provided new details about the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of GTA V last week including three graphics modes for players to choose from.
They include Fidelity Mode for the highest visual quality, a Performance Mode designed to offer the most responsive gameplay experience, and a Performance RT mode billed as a hybrid of the first two modes.
The studio also confirmed in February that Grand Theft Auto 6 is currently in development.
