Rockstar has revealed the pricing for the new-gen versions of Grand Theft Auto V, which will hit PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S next week on March 15.

Alongside the pricing, the digital storefronts also reveal that there are no free upgrade paths for owners of existing versions of GTA V.

Here’s a look at the costs: 

PlayStation 5

  • GTA V will be 75% off for its first three months after launch, meaning it will cost you $9.99. After that, the price will jump back up to $39.99. Buying this at launch at $9.99, or sometime after three months for $39.99, will get you both the single-player campaign and GTA Online. 
  • GTA Online on PS5 will be free in its first three months. After that, the standalone version of GTA Online, meaning the version that does not include the single-play story campaign, will cost $19.99.
