Rockstar Games revealed in a press release earlier today that an upgraded version of Grand Theft Auto V, one of the best-selling video games of all time, is on its way to Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on November 11th, 2021. The PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of Grand Theft Auto V will reportedly come with “new features and more,” as well as summer updates to GTA Online which will include auxiliary components for players with the next-gen updates.

Per the official press release:

The expanded and enhanced versions of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online are arriving on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S with new features and more, on November 11th, 2021. As an added bonus — this summer’s updates to GTA Online will include special benefits for players to take advantage of in these expanded and enhanced versions when they drop. Plus, in honor of the upcoming 20th anniversary of the genre defining Grand Theft Auto III, we’ll have even more fun surprises to share — including some specifically for GTA Online players.

As the above excerpt divulged, Grand Theft Auto V‘s online spinoff, GTA Online will also be making its way to the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X|S platforms with Rockstar promising “new opportunities for fans of performance and customization upgrades to get together with like-minded gearheads to test and show off their rides free from interference from authorities and other troublemakers.” Sony announced that the online version would be free for all PS5 owners during the first three months of the game’s availability.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
