While many gamers out there have paid for GTA V a few times over already. Be it by purchasing the PS4 version or paying for in-game currency. It seems that Rockstar won’t make you pay for the game again when the GTA V on PS5 rolls around. According to a French retailer, the PS5 version of GTA V will be a free upgrade for owners of the PS4 version.
French retailer Micromania listed a bunch of games with their perspective upgrade paths into next-gen. This includes games we already know are getting free upgrades such as Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs, Borderlands 3 and even the non-upgradable Control. Along with the list includes GTA V with the wording “Free update to PS5 version if you have PS4 version”.
While this does not confirm the upgrade, it does give us hope that we might not be forced to buy the whole damn game again. Users can just use the PS4 version to experience the new changes. Keep in mind that this could simply be a mistake so don’t get your hopes up just yet.
The retailer also lists the frame rate and resolution of upcoming games and how they are set to run on the PS5. These details have already been confirmed by developers so there’s nothing new to see here. You can take a look at the full list here.
We know Grand Theft Auto Online is launching later this year and is free for all PS5 owners. However, the single-player campaign is only releasing sometime in early 2021. This version is said to boast some fancy new graphical updates to the experience. What these are, we don’t know yet. Of course, GTA V on PS5 will take advantage of the faster loading times as well as an increased resolution and more. Rockstar has yet to share exactly what this means for the experience. Perhaps the free Grand Theft Auto Online mode will be a sneak peek at the changes coming in 2021?
