Delivering the epic, action-packed experience of Grand Theft Auto V and the ever-evolving online universe of GTA Online to the latest generation of consoles for new and returning players, Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online for PlayStation® 5 and Xbox Series S|X debut with a host of new and improved features, making both games more player-friendly and easier to access than ever before.

New graphics modes allow players to tailor their gameplay experience. Fidelity Mode is tuned for the highest visual quality and targets 30-FPS.

In addition to seeing Los Santos and Blaine County in greater detail than ever before, the massive and unrivaled experience of GTA Online — with 8+ years’ worth of gameplay additions delivered across over 40 unique updates — will continue to evolve with the power of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, while new player-friendly features will allow players to quickly jump into activities that interest them most from a redesigned Main Menu, offering quick access to Story Mode or the latest and most popular content from GTA Online.

New and returning players will also have the ability to create a new character through GTA Online’s new Career Builder, which guides players through the selection of one of four Criminal Careers to get started, plus a GTA$4,000,000 windfall to use on a select property, a powerhouse vehicle, and the necessary firepower to kickstart their enterprise.

Furthermore, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players eager to continue their journey on the newest generation of hardware will be able to transfer both their Grand Theft Auto V: Story Mode progress and their current GTA Online characters and progression with a one-time migration, complete with special rewards including a free Karin S95 fully converted by the experts at Hao’s Special Works, plus an HSW racing suit and a highly sought-after set of Chameleon paints made available to all vehicles.
