Rockstar Games has released information on the upcoming exclusive content coming to players that have purchased a copy of Grand Theft Auto V previously for last generation consoles but are going to buy another copy for current generation or PC.

According to the Rockstar blog there will be new challenges and events in the world for the player to discover. A photography challenge called “Murder Mystery” will have the player looking for clues to solve a murder in order to unlock two noir style filters for the game. Another challenge called the “Wildlife Photography Challenge” will have the player documenting the sea life found throughout the region. Completed the wildlife challenge will reward the player with the Kraken submarine. The challenge called “Money Mosaics” will have the player tracking down a local graffiti artist to earn new money outfits along with a unique car.

“To reward loyal GTAV fans for coming back to the newer, more detailed version of Los Santos and Blaine County, we’ve created an array of exclusive items specifically for these players – with each of them connected to activities designed for you to experience the game’s massive world in new and exciting ways.”

The exclusive content will also offer many new vehicles including the Dodo plane from previous titles and a “Duke O’Death” version of the Imponte. There will be a new monster truck and a faster, more agile version of the blimp. There will also be a series of stock car races that will unlock special muscle car models. Included in the content is two new weapons, a hatchet and a rail gun. Despite all of these goodies Rockstar claims this is not the full list of content that will be included in the upcoming releases. One has to wonder if they will take a moment to consider finally releasing the heists promised for the original release of Grand Theft Auto Online. Hopefully there will be more details to come as the release day approaches.

Grand Theft Auto V releases on November 18th of this year for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PC release of Grand Theft Auto V is slated for January of 2015.
