GTA V: Premium Online Edition Announced, Includes $1 Million Bonus Cash

PS4 and Xbox One players can grab it now. PC players can get a digital edition next week.


Rockstar has continued supporting Grand Theft Auto Online since Grand Theft Auto V’s release all the way back in 2013, turning it into a sandbox flush with a diverse collection of experiences. If you’ve somehow not joined the many players building their criminal empires, you can do so with the Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online edition that’s in store now for PS4 and Xbox One. The digital edition is coming to PC players next week.

GTA V: Premium Online not only comes with the full base game and GTA Online, players will get all existing gameplay upgrades including The Doomsday Heist, Gunrunning, Smuggler’s Run, Bikers, and more. On top of that, the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack gives GTA Online players a jumpstart with more content and $1,000,000 to get your business ideas, legal or illegal, off the ground in-game.

One of the new experiences available is The Vespucci Job, a mode where two teams hit the streets as either the lunatics on the run in a new Issa Classic or as the squad cars chasing the new ride down. The update includes another new car as well: The Vapid Flash GT, a customizable American-style hatchback.

You can find GTA V: Premium Online Edition in stores now. No price was listed in the press release, but we’ll update as we find more information.

      I gave up on playing this game online. All the cool stuff either takes too much grinding or requires buying too much cash to get.

        Yup, the whole thing is based around trying to get you to buy shark cards to the point that nothign you do in game seems worth it. It's just a really bad balance. If they pulled back a bit on the in-game pricing of items I would probably still be playing it but I'm not paying $500K for a fucking seat cover.

        Yup. No effective ways to make money, especially when each new update is millions more than the last. Most expensive cars used to be ~1 million and were few and far between. Now a new update launches and the cheapest car before mods is 3-4. Dumb. I remember the same problem with RDR though. Rockstar has no intention of making progression easy or varied. Instead they'll make it a huge mindless grind so people are incentivized to buy the cards.
