Bottom Line: Just two weeks after the release of current-generation versions of Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online, Rockstar has unveiled a premium subscription service for the game. It will feature monthly drops of exclusive in-game content and bonuses and will launch at the end of this month.
Beginning March 29, GTA Online players on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles will be able to sign up for GTA+. For $5.99 per month, they receive monthly bonuses of in-game currency and the ability to claim unique features, vehicle upgrades, and cosmetics.
After signing up, subscribers immediately receive $500,000 in in-game money and receive that amount every month again. The benefits for the first month, ending April 27, include a car with a free upgrade, a hunting upgrade, multiplied rewards for races, extra bonus money from ‘GTA+ Shark Cards’ and more.
The PS5 and Xbox Series versions of GTAV and GTA Online were released on March 15 with improved graphics and discounted prices valid until June. The PS5 version of GTA Online is free to keep until then, so this could be seen as a way for Rockstar to get some quick revenue from players on that console.
According to reports from last year, GTA VI — assuming the next main title will be called that — isn’t expected before 2024 or 2025. Last month, Rockstar confirmed that the next GTA is in active development, but didn’t share any other details.
