Enhanced Edition

The enhanced edition was announced for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 9, 2014 with a trailer. On September 12 the game's re-release was announced and it was released on November 18 on consoles, with a PC release delayed until January 27, 2015. The enhanced edition features ingame Special/Collector Edition content as bonus features which players can buy via ingame cash (although original owners of the special/collectors will continue to get these for free).

On October 28, 2014 special content was announced for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 players buying the new version on any of the three systems. They include a new Submersible, a Dodo Seaplane (similar to the Skimmer from 3D Universe), a returning muscle car classic, the Stallion as well as a modified armoured version of GTA IV's 1969 Dodge Charger inspired Dukes, a modified monkey designed Blista, two new weapons; a Rail Gun & Hatchet and several new side missions to unlock the content, including a murder mystery and photography challenge.

For the first time, First-Person View on foot and in vehicles will be implemented and players are free to switch between this and Third-Person View on-the-fly. Characters from GTA Online in PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game can be transferred to the enhanced edition. The transfer is a one-time-only copy and the character can continue to be played on both platforms, but progress made after the transfer on the old platform will not be reflected in the new platform and vice versa.

Trivia

  • Although the Atomic Blimp is available to Standard Edition pre-orders, it is included with the additional DLC content in the Special Edition and Collector's Edition without the need of a pre-order.
