The second best-selling game of all time is coming to the next-gen consoles very soon. Grand Theft Auto 5 has been released on 2 different generations of consoles since its launch, and it's about to be three. First debut in 2013, seven years and 130 million copies shipped later, GTA 5 (and GTA Online - its multiplayer component) is still going strong. Rockstar Games now even plan to publish the game on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X with GTA Online Expanded and Enhanced.

1. GTA Online Expanded and Enhanced for next-gen consoles

Thanks to backward compatibility, you can always enjoy the original GTA 5 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. But what's new in that? You don't just buy the latest consoles to play a 7-year-old game, do you? Well, Rockstar Games know that and they're planning to do something about it.

GTA 5 and GTA Online are coming in hot for next-gen consoles.

The game developers and publishers confirm that a new and improved version of GTA 5 will launch on November 11, 2021. According to Rockstar, this version will be next-gen console exclusive, with "new features".  In addition, the company also announced a standalone version of GTA Online for PS5 and Xbox Series X. It will be free exclusively for PS5 players until February 2022.

So far, we still have no idea what Rockstar Games will include in this version of GTA Online. From what we heard, it's pretty much a remastered version of GTA 5 for PS5 and Xbox Series X. In terms of what new features are coming, little clues were leaked other than the trailer of GTA 5 expanded and Enhanced.

But we do know this. If you own the GTA Online Expanded And Enhanced version, you will receive something special in the Summer DLC - Los Santos Tuners. We have to wait and see how the future will turn out!

There's one thing for sure, though. The car collection will only get bigger in the new version.

Despite everything, PlayStation owners are the ones who enjoy this the most. Players who play GTA Online on PS4 will get GTA$1 million every month until the PS5 version launches. And when GTA Online's standalone edition arrives on PS5, owners of the console will have three months to claim it. Meanwhile, Xbox Series X/S owners probably have to pay for everything.

2. GTA Online Expanded and Enhanced release date

Rockstar Games has announced that GTA Online Expanded And Enhanced edition will launch on November 11, 2021. PS5 and Xbox Series X owners can start upgrading to this version then. However, we don't know if there will be a paid upgradation for those who own the game on PS4 or Xbox One, or it will be a full purchase.

Will GTA Expanded and Enhanced be on PS4?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. This version of the game is exclusive to next-gen consoles, meaning PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Players who own PS4 or Xbox One consoles cannot enjoy this edition.

These are only speculations. Rockstar Games hasn't confirmed any detail about the upgrade.
  • Polish and revamp old content to create new ones, worthy of the next-gen consoles. Rockstar Games also went back to enhance gameplay mechanics and the story mode missions to suit VR.
  • New content added to story mode. Players can unlock new missions exclusive to the Expanded and Enhanced version. There will also be exclusive cars, weapons, or outfits.
  • 100 new licensed songs will be available.
  • The Cayo Perico map may also be available in Story mode in the GTA Online Expanded and Enhanced version.

Again, we have to stress that these are speculations made by the community. None of the features above are confirmed by Rockstar Games. We cannot say with absolute certainty that any of this will happen. Only time can tell what's actually coming in this November.
