The current-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V is now available for pre-order on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S ahead of its March 15 release, and Rockstar Games is offering up to 75% discounts for a limited time. The game’s full price will be $39.99 once the promotion ends, but PlayStation 5 players can currently get it for just $9.99.
Due to a marketing deal between Sony and Rockstar Games, PlayStation 5 players can save $30 off the full Grand Theft Auto V package that includes the single-player Story mode and GTA Online. The latter will also be free for the first three months for PlayStation 5 players with a PlayStation Plus subscription.

If you’re on Xbox Series X|S, the GTA V Story Mode bundle that also includes GTA Online is currently priced at $19.99, but GTA Online can be purchased alone for just $9.99. If you played GTA V on Xbox One or PS4 before, you’ll also be able to transfer your Story Mode and GTA Online progression at launch, though this one-time migration won’t work across PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
GTA V is one of the best-selling games of all time, and there’s no doubt that this new current-gen version will also sell very well. Rockstar Games has implemented new graphics modes with up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second, texture and draw distance upgrades, HDR options, and ray-tracing. Other updates include faster loading times, 3D audio, as well as haptic feedback support on the PS5 DualSense controller.
If GTA V will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year, Rockstar Games confirmed last month that developers have already started working on the next Grand Theft Auto game. “With every new project we embark on, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we have previously delivered — and we are pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway,” the company said.
