Here's everything you need to know about the next-gen release of GTA 5 on PS5 and Xbox Series X and how you can preorder your copies now.

Next-Gen GTA 5 Pre-Orders & Price

You can now preorder GTA 5 on PS5 and Xbox Series X (and S), as of Tuesday, 8 March.

This upgrade will cost $10, and for PS Plus users on PS5, the order also includes 3 months of GTA Online for free!


GTA V Pre-Load


Pre-load for GTA 5 should be available on Xbox Series X as soon as you've pre-ordered the upgraded version of the game. For PS5, typically you must wait until 48 hours before release for pre-load to be avaialble.

This rule is sometimes bypassed and in the case of GTA 5, with the release being so soon after pre-orders go live, we may see this 48 hour period waived.

Transfer GTA V Story & Online Content

In the case of both story content and Online characters, the process for transferring them to the next-gen versions of GTA 5 is the same. You can upload everything to the Rockstar Social Club and it will sit there for 90 days.
