Rockstar Games has released a new version of Grand Theft Auto V. The updated version, titled Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition, bundles together Grand Theft Auto V with many of the expansion packs which have come to the online component of the game. It’s available now, both digitally and as a boxed copy.

Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition includes all existing gameplay upgrades and content including The Doomsday HeistGunrunningSmuggler’s RunBikers and much more. You’ll also get the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack, which Rockstar describes as “the fastest way for new GTA Online players to jumpstart their criminal empires with the most exciting and popular content plus $1,000,000 bonus cash to spend in GTA Online – over GTA$10,000,000 in value”.

The game is available both physically and digitally, with the boxed copy costing $80 and the digital one $85. It’s no surprise that the game is getting what is essentially a re-release, given that it has received steady content updates since launching almost five years ago. The game is arguably the highest grossing media product in history, having made over $6 Billion dollars in revenue (depending on how you define the term and limitations). A lot of this can be attributed to the game’s ever-popular GTA Online mode, which allows players to create their own characters and play around in the game’s huge open-world. It’s an incredibly versatile experience, in which players can do everything from joining motorcycle gangs, trade stocks, race, play golf or simply just hang out.

Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition is available now for PlayStation 4, and Xbox One(affiliate link). The game has been in headlines recently for some very strange news indeed. The long-running legal battle led by Lindsay Lohan accusing RockStar of using her likeness in Grand Theft Auto V came to an end recently when her appeal was dismissed by the court.
