Xbox Series X|S

On Xbox Series X|S, you can buy both GTA V's story mode and GTA Online for £17.49 / $19.99.

That price is higher becuase GTA Online isn't free to anyone. If you're not interested in playing the story again, you can buy GTA Online alone for £8.99 / $9.99. It's not clear how much Online will cost alone come June.
