GRAND Theft Auto V, the second-best selling video game of all time, is going on sale again – for a bargain price.
Starting on March 15, fans can jump back into the lawless world of Los Santos at a discount.
For months, gamers with new consoles have been playing a version of GTA V made for the previous generation of consoles.
The discounted game is the same product, but programmed for gameplay on the newer Playstation 5 and Xbox X and S consoles.
The updated game will feature quicker loading times and 4K resolution.
Depending on the console, savings may vary.
On the Playstation 5, GTA V is available for preorder for the modest price of $9.99.
According to The Verge, the purchasing link is buried deep in the PS5 store.
Hover over the PS4 version of the game, click the button with three dots, select “View Product” and then preorder the game by selecting “Grand Theft Auto V (Playstation 5)” to take advantage of the 75% discount.
Twitter users have provided a guide for navigating the download in the slightly convoluted PS5 roll out of GTA V.
GTA Online, the game within the game, is available for free for PS5 users.
On the Xbox Series X/S, users can preorder GTA V, with GTA Online included, from the Microsoft Store for $19.99.
GTA Online can be preordered on the Xbox Series X/S for $9.99.
The game requires over 85 gigabytes of space on both consoles.
However, with over 500 gigs available on the PS5 and Xbox Series S and a whole terabyte on the Series X, storage shouldn’t be a problem for gamers with well-managed hard drives.
GTA V was released in 2013, back when Playstation 3 was the hottest console. Two Playstation generations later, fans are still tearing up the streets of Los Santos.
Steamcharts reported that in February 2022, there was an average of over 92,000 playing the online version of the game.
The sale will continue up to June 14, after which the game will return to it’s full price of $39.99 for story mode and online, and $19.99 for just the online version.
With GTA VI rumored to have a 2024 release, fans of the franchise have plenty of time to sharpen their skills by playing the next generation update.
