Applies to PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions.
'Grand Theft Auto V' is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One on November 18th, and veteran players have been clamoring for a reason to return on the new platforms. Today, Rockstar announced that there will be new content in the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions that are exclusive to returning 360 and PS3 players, presumably through the Rockstar Social Club. Equally important, Rockstar has also explained that owners of bonus content on the 360 and PS3, including the special edition and the collector's edition, will have get that content for free in the new versions. Other players can access that content, but must earn it in-game.
Another important note has to do with character transfers. For those players transfering their GTA Online character from the 360 and PS3, that transfer can only happen once. For example, if transferred to the PS4 or Xbox One, the character cannot then be later transferred to the PC.
While the following content is exclusive for returning players, Rockstar has also noted that there will be a "bounty of content" for new and returning players to discover.
Here's the exclusive content for returning players:
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.
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.
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.
