Returning GTA V players will receive exclusive content

GTA V next gen Screen rewards 1

Rockstar Games has revealed that players returning to the next gen versions of GTA V will gain extra items and activities.

The latest news update from Rockstar Games has detailed some exclusive content available to those who upgrade from the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of GTA V to the next gen remasterings.

Rockstar say that the rewards are items and activities which are 'designed for you to experience the game's massive world in new and exciting ways.'

Here are some of the extra items and activities offered from Rockstar:

New Events & Rewards

Encounter new events happening all across the world, and complete the challenges they present to unlock exclusive new vehicles like the menacing Imponte Duke O’Death and that veritable GTA classic bird of flight, the Dodo seaplane.

Murder Mystery

As Michael, follow a trail of cryptic clues to unravel a grisly murder mystery. Put the clues together and you'll unlock two Noir Style Filters, which will give your Story Mode gameplay and Snapmatic photos the feel of a gritty old school crime classic.

Weapons: The Rail Gun & Hatchet

Obliterate your adversaries with the high-powered, high-velocity Rail Gun. This piece of experimental military technology also has its own set of Shooting Range Challenges at your local Ammu-Nation shooting range. Or hack and slash foes up close and personal with the brutal Hatchet melee weapon.

Wildlife Photography Challenge

There are new species of animals across Los Santos and Blaine County, and the LS Tourist Board needs someone to document them. As Franklin, catalog unique animal species scattered across the map to unlock the special Kraken Sub.

Stock Car Races

Win a series of new Stock Car Races to earn unique custom Muscle Cars adorned with logos from some of the companies that made this country great.

Monkey Mosaics

A mysterious street artist is tagging walls all across town with his simian-inspired silhouettes. Track down and photograph them all to earn new monkey outfits (available to all players) and a special Go Go Monkey Blista exclusively for returning players.

New Vehicles and More

Grind up the Los Santos freeways (and over anybody in your path) with the Cheval Marshall monster truck and take to the skies in a faster and more maneuverable Blimp, compliments of Xero Gas.

The news update also mentions 'a fleet of classic GTA vehicles' as well as more surprises that'll be discovered when the game launches on 18th November on PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version of the game is due for a 27th January 2015 release.

Xbox 360 and PS3 players can transfer their GTA Online progress over to any of the next gen and PC versions too, with those who pre-order receiving a total of $1 million of in-game currency split between the single player and Online modes.
