THE GRAND Theft Auto 5 remake is finally here, bringing Rockstar’s hit to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
To celebrate its release on Tuesday, the American gaming giant is offering GTA Online for free to play on the PlayStation until June 15.
GTA: V Enhanced Edition gives the crime simulator a fresh coat of paint almost a decade since the original release.
It boasts major upgrades to the graphics, including gameplay at up to 60fps and improved textures and draw distances.
The latest version of the game also has faster load times, immersive 3D audio, and platform-specific features like enhanced haptic feedback.
Perhaps the biggest change, however, is that GTA Online has been separated from the single-player campaign.
If you own a PS5, you can download a new standalone version of the game’s hugely popular multiplayer mode for free.
This version comes with next-gen improvements but does not include the single-player campaign.
To get it, just fire up your PS5 console and search for GTA Online in the PlayStation Store.
You can add the standalone version to your library at no additional charge until the sale ends on June 15.
That means Rockstar is following in the footsteps of Activision, the developer of the Call of Duty franchise.
In recent years, they’ve separated each of the top Call of Duty games from Warzone, a free-to-play, indie multiplayer version of the shooter.
GTA: V remake was announced in 2020 with the promise of enhanced graphics and improved performance.
This will be the third iteration of the game after launching on Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2013 and later remade for Xbox One and PS4.
Despite its age, GTA: V remains hugely popular, with tens of thousands of players regularly flocking to its multiplayer mode.
The game is set in the fictional state of San Andreas – which is inspired by Southern California.
The story follows three criminals who carry out robberies against a backdrop of organized crime and corrupt government agents.
More importantly, GTA 5 also comes with GTA Online – a fairly popular multiplayer experience.
It’s set in the same open world, but you get to live out your crime fantasies alongside other players in real time.
