Last week we reported that Grand Theft Auto V is getting a new Version from the Grand Theft Auto V Premium Online Edition for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Priced at $80 (approximately Rs. 5,310) in the US at retail and $85 (approximately Rs. 5,650) digitally it would be safe to say you’d be paying around the exact same amount for the game in India. Nevertheless this doesn’t seem to be true on PS4 and Xbox One at the least. GTA V Premium Online Edition India price is Rs. 4,499 with a release date of April 23.
And while Rs. 4,499 may seem steep once you consider that normal, standard variations of GTA V retail for approximately Rs. 2,750 on PS4 and Xbox One, keep in mind that it includes a lot of content related to GTA Online, GTA V’s multiplayer mode. There does not seem to be a physical PC version of GTA V Premium Online Edition, so if you’re trying to pick this up to play on PC you are restricted to a digital download right now.
Grand Theft Auto V Premium Online Edition contains the full Grand Theft Auto V narrative experience, the evolving world of Grand Theft Auto Online, and most of existing gameplay upgrades and content including The Doomsday Heist, Gunrunning, Smuggler’s Run, Bikers and much more.
Along with the, Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition also has the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack. Rockstar claims it is “the fastest way for brand new GTA Online players to jumpstart their criminal empires with the most exciting and popular material and $1,000,000 bonus money to invest in GTA Online – over GTA$10,000,000 in value”.
A digital version of Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition is expected “next week” based on an announcement from Rockstar. That said, the present physical release appears to have a Rs. 500 savings versus buying it not too bad at all if you are the sort who is seeking to get the most from GTA V outside its superlative single-player experience.
