Pre-load GTAV and GTA Online on PS5

Plus details on the new GTA Online Career Builder.

Pre-loading for Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online is now available for those who’ve pre-ordered digitally through the PlayStation 5 console store. Players can get GTA Online for free* exclusively on PS5 for the first three months from the game’s launch on March 15.

These new versions of GTAV and GTA Online launch on March 15 and feature new graphics modes including up to 4K resolution, a framerate of up to 60 frames per second, improved texture qualities, HDR options and ray tracing, faster loading times, immersive 3D audio, and more.

Plus, you can transfer Story Mode progress from your PS4 or Xbox One now by uploading a save to the Rockstar Games Social Club, and you’ll be able to migrate your GTA Online character** on March 15. Those eager to continue their journey on PlayStation 5 will also get a fully converted Karin S95 souped up by the experts at Hao’s Special Works, along with a Hao’s Special Work Racing Outfit and set of new Chameleon paints usable on all vehicles.

The Career Builder

As mentioned last week, GTA Online on PlayStation 5 will feature the Career Builder. This is designed to give new players — or anyone who wants to reset their character and get a fresh start — a helpful leg-up in the criminal world of Southern San Andreas. 

With the Career Builder, you’ll enter GTA Online with a business property, a vehicle, and a weapon — with room to add useful upgrades and a little extra GTA$ to begin.

Choose from a selection of the most popular criminal career paths in GTA Online: Biker, Executive, Nightclub Owner, or Gunrunner. From there you’ll receive a GTA$4,000,000 bankroll to put towards acquiring the essentials. Picking one of these four careers will ensure you have a business property and a huge range of missions and gameplay to embark upon immediately — and you can of course expand and dabble in new careers as you progress.

After selecting a career, use your newfound GTA$4M windfall to acquire start-up essentials from across a wide range of properties, vehicles, and weapons. You can select from the basics — a non-upgraded business property, alongside a simple weapon and vehicle combination — or you can opt for business properties complete with upgrades and customizations, high-end vehicles, and enough weapons to fill a Gun Locker. It all depends on how you want to spend your dispensation, and you can bring a maximum of GTA$1,000,000 from this with you into GTA Online.

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online will be available digitally on March 15 through the PlayStation 5 console store, with a physical release coming in April. Stay tuned for more details.

*Offer available from March 15, 2022 until June 14, 2022. Download from PS5 console store. PlayStation Plus required to play (recurring fees apply).
**For GTA Online platform migrations, purchased GTA$ can only be transferred between platforms of the same family (PS4 to PS5). All earned GTA$ will transfer regardless of platform.

  • So is there any way I can use the the PS Store to get this before I get a PS5 (since those are still very hard to come by) or will I need a PS5 to take advantage of this by June?

    • Pretty sure it’s one of those lame situations where you have to use the PS5 store. PS5’s are pretty easy to get and have been for a long time. Just join a stock alert group. Also if you have a friend with a PS5 just login on theirs to do it.

    • Yes, you can. Just buy from PS App, just like you do with claiming PS5 games for PS Plus.

    • I went on PS app and it wasn’t there, searched and PS5 one wouldn’t come up. Had to do it on my PS5.

    • You will have to at least sign into a 5 with your account, then sign into the psn app, it will prompt you to choose a console, 4 or 5, at which time you will have access to the P5 store and the free version on the 15th.

    • so glad i got a ps5 and this game preloaded dabs all over this page

    • you can only buy this on the PLAYSTATION 5 store not the website someone else said 🤣🤣

    • It’s only in the PS Store on the console. I was looking online for it and in the app since I wasn’t at home and couldn’t find it anywhere. There were articles with links to it for both Xbox and PlayStation and neither link worked. Tried it from the store on the PS5 and it went right to it. May work from the store on a PS4 as well, not sure.

      It’s a pretty bad way to promote something. Offer a discount for a certain time period, but only when purchased from a platform that is extremely hard to get ahold of, and most who don’t already have one probably won’t within that time period.

      Hopefully it’s just for preorders, and when the game actually goes live you will be able to purchase it online/from the PS app.

  • Pre-Ordered! Excited to play this masterpiece again!

  • Already Downloading gta v story mode + GTA Online :) can’t wait march 15

  • I’d like to know, if we upgrade to the PS5 version; will we be able to still play with people who only have a PS4? I don’t want to upgrade if I can’t play with my friends…

    • No you can’t play with ps4 player because ps4 can’t handle the new graphic modes 4k and fps 60 with ray tracing

    • It will connect to the same server and have the same players. Ignore the other guy. The games graphics have nothing to do with who you can play online with.

    • Not only that, the games will never sync, as they will be on 2 totally different updates. This is exactly the same as when we merged over to the P4 from the P3 people. No different.

    • NAQ is 100% wrong.

    • Whether or not Naq wants to realize or admit it, once he or his friends merge, whomever gets left behind on P4 will NOT be playing with those on P5, PERIOD!. End of story. So choose wisely. If you have multiple accounts, choose which one to bring over at this point. If you don’t, get on your homies to upgrade.

    • Can’t find anything concrete saying they’re separate, but you’re probably right. They talk about various upgrades being exclusive, and some faster vehicles. So it does sound like 2 separate servers.

    • Okay, follow up question–Is there any way to upgrade just the story version, and still play the unupgraded GTAV online?

  • I do not have a PS5 but I want to buy it. How come it is not on the webstore?

  • Online looks fun

  • I tried finding it on the PS5 store and couldn’t. Only the PS4 version. Where is it?

  • I’ll be getting the Physical Copy on April.

  • Surely you didn’t copy paste the trophy list into the rubbish offline/online mixed list and actually decoupled the two of them…

  • Heyy quick question I was wondering if I upgrade to the ps5 version of gta will I still be able to play with my friends online who are on a PS4

    It’s been working now since it’s still the PS4 version of the game

  • So what about the player’s level? I got 2 characters, one is 456lv and one 219lv, can I transfer the levels as well?

  • six six six

  • Can’t wait for this on Saturday. $10 is nothing really :)

  • jonathan_d_smith

    Hi. Can anyone confirm that players playing the PS5 version can still play with friends/ crew members playing on PS4? Thanks

  • lmMisterMeeseeks

    Is it legal ? Tons of promises, cheap price etc… BUT still no actual images of those promises nor gameplay. I preordered but if we get a cheap product like the trilogy you’re going down

    • nothing about this is even remotely illegal. nobody is forcing you to buy it before release. if youre not convinced, wait

  • I only play online. If I get one now after 3 months can I still able to play it? Or need to buy one?

  • I got it free without ps plus how?

  • Make it redeemable through the website or app, please for those like me having issues finding or affording a ps5. Like many, it’s going to be awhile before they have access to a ps5, allowing Playstation users using their login info to buy the online upgrade at no cost will go a long way to rebuild some bridges. Also, please don’t separate us from ps5 players, allow ps4 and ps5 player still play together. There has to be a way.

    • not gonna happen its playstation 5 store or not at all thats what rockstar games told me

    • Switch to Xbox like I did. Just got fed up with ps taking advantage of loyal customers and actively going out of their way to block functionality. This is just another example in a very long list. £70 games is another big reason.

  • glad i pre ordered this and got ps plus when i did – and for everyone asking – you can only buy this on the playstation 5 store not the internet store – this ps5 version will be way better then the ps4 port they put on the pc :D not long left now woop

    • @richyawesome007
      I know the PS5 version is currently only purchasable from a PS5 console, but I suspect this is only the case during the preorder period. Once the game is released, it should be available in the mobile app as well, just like all other PS5 games. And this makes sense since the above post’s text is specifically referring to preloading. If you are correct, then GTA V will not be purchasable at all (PS5 or PS4) from the app until the promotional period ends in June, at the earliest. I doubt this is the case, especially for a game that has consistently been a best seller since it first released. Why would Rockstar make their best selling product impossible to buy on the app for 3 months? This would be unprecedented if it turns out to be true. From where did you get information that indicates otherwise?

  • Wasup

  • So I until recently only played on xbox one GTA v online now that i have a PS5 i want to play on it exclusively. It seems as if i can upload my data to social club and then login on my PS5 and it work wondering if anyone else is trying to do the same? Is it possible the article doesn explicitly state you cant switch platforms does it i didnt see it.

  • I downloaded the PS5 GTA Online but I can’t find where to purchase the PS5 GTA V itself. Also how do you migrate your save before the digital release?

  • I have a profile on XBOX, as well. Can I retrieve my character from the XBOX and use it for PS5?

  • Обычные граждане России ни как не отвечают за действия своей элиты, за что вы отключили доступ, как вернуть деньги за подписку?

  • As I would like to start the story all again on the ps5, would I be able to get all the ps5 trophies for it? Or does it auto pop my ps4 ones?

  • r__xv-189

  • Does anyone know how much will be the store price for the game, is it the same $9.99 or it’s different. I just want to make sure to buy digital version of the game for PS5 or wait for a disc version, thanks

  • Also when is the release date for the store, is it the same March 15th, 2022?

  • What a good day to have a ps5 i only care about the specs and the new cars and mission but I want to know if I’m able to play with my ps4 friends while I’m on this version of gta 5

  • I’m done waiting. Definitely not going to pay scalper prices. VERY Happy with the new Xbox X. Very impressive machine. Definitely USA friendly:(… Really kinda sad

  • my love grand💕

  • It’s 4AM here and I’m still awake to see if I can get GTA Online for free as promised.

    But still I can’t find it.

    Please respond this comment with a link to the store page.

  • Grand theft Auto online ps5

  • I have a dumb question to ask. I have a ps5 but I have the ps4 version of the game installed and I was wondering, can I still get all the new features that come with the update?
