GTA 5 will be getting both a special edition and collector’s edition full of extras, Rockstar announced on the official company blog.

The Grand Theft Auto 5 Special Edition includes a retail copy of GTA 5, collectible double-sided steelbook featuring never-before-seen GTA 5 artwork, a 21.5 in. by 26.75 in. blueprint map of Los Santos and Blaine County with special markings for fast cash locations, a special ability boost to generate each characters’ special ability bar 25 percent faster and the single-player Stunt Plane Trials set of aerial challenges.

Also included in the special edition of GTA 5 are bonus outfits, tattoos and deals from shopkeepers for use in-game. Players will also be able to add the Pistol .50, Bullpup shotgun and melee hammer to their in-game arsenal of weapons for free by visiting an Ammunation store.

The Grand Theft Auto 5 Special Edition will be priced at $79.99.

All of the same content from the special edition will be included in the Grand Theft Auto 5 Collector’s Edition, plus more.

Included in the GTA 5 Collector’s Edition are a GTA 5-branded security deposit money bag with logo key and a New Era 9Fifty Snapback Cap featuring “Los Santos” embroidered across the front, a Rockstar logo on one side and GTA 5 logo on the other side.

The Grand Theft Auto 5 Collector’s Edition will also include classic characters from the GTA franchise for use within the Grand Theft Auto Online Character Creation System and instant access to unique vehicles. Players will have a 1930’s style Hotknife hot rod and CarbonRS sports bike in their garage for single-player while also getting the Khanelion electric car for online use.

All the content for the collector’s edition comes in a premium outer box featuring an embossed GTA 5 logo and scuff-resistant lamination.

The Grand Theft Auto 5 Collector’s Edition will retail for $149.99.

Additionally, gamers who pre-order either the special edition or collector’s edition of GTA 5 will get access to the Atomic Blimp in-game vehicle. The blimp is GTA’s take on the famous Goodyear blimp. Players will be able to pilot the machine high above Los Santos. Anyone who pre-ordered the game before today will also get access to the blimp.

Pre-orders for both editions of GTA 5 are launching worldwide at participating retailers now.

GTA 5 is set to release Sept. 17 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. For more GTA 5 coverage, click here.
