If there is anyone here that picked up Grand Theft Auto V on either the PS3 or Xbox 360 then you may want to read on.

Rockstar have created "an array of exclusive items" specifically for these players, and each of them are connected to activities designed for you to experience the new and updated world in new and exciting ways.

  • New events and rewards

Encounter new events happening all across the world, and complete the challenges they present to unlock exclusive new vehicles like the menacing Imponte Duke O’Death and that veritable GTA classic bird of flight, the Dodo seaplane.

  • Murder Mystery

As Michael, follow a trail of cryptic clues to unravel a grisly murder mystery. Put the clues together and you'll unlock two Noir Style Filters, which will give your Story Mode gameplay and Snapmatic photos the feel of a gritty old school crime classic.

  • Weapons: The Rail Gun & Hatchet

Obliterate your adversaries with the high-powered, high-velocity Rail Gun. This piece of experimental military technology also has its own set of Shooting Range Challenges at your local Ammu-Nation shooting range. Or hack and slash foes up close and personal with the brutal Hatchet melee weapon.

  • Wildlife Photography Challenge

There are new species of animals across Los Santos and Blaine County, and the LS Tourist Board needs someone to document them. As Franklin, catalog unique animal species scattered across the map to unlock the special Kraken Sub.

  • Stock Car Races

Win a series of new Stock Car Races to earn unique custom Muscle Cars adorned with logos from some of the companies that made this country great.

  • Monkey Mosaics

A mysterious street artist is tagging walls all across town with his simian-inspired silhouettes. Track down and photograph them all to earn new monkey outfits (available to all players) and a special Go Go Monkey Blista exclusively for returning players.

  • New Vehicles and More

Grind up the Los Santos freeways (and over anybody in your path) with the Cheval Marshall monster truck and take to the skies in a faster and more maneuverable Blimp, compliments of Xero Gas.

There will also be a bounty of content for all players, new and returning, to discover - including a fleet of classic GTA vehicles and a few more surprises we've got planned that you’ll have to discover for yourself come game day. And as previously announced, current GTA Online players on PS3 and Xbox 360 will be able to pick up where they left off, transferring their characters and progression seamlessly to their choice of PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC (Social Club membership required).

Rockstar have also revealed that anyone who pre-orders the game will receive GTA$1M, split half and half between single-player and GTA Online.

They have also answered some questions that they've received over the last couple of months.

Those of you that bought the collectors or special editions last year will receive the items automatically when you upgrade to the PC version.

You will be able to transfer your previous character from the PS3/Xbox 360 to the PC version and still be able to use them on both systems. The progress won't be linked.

The new updated version of Grand Theft Auto V won't be able to run on the PS3/Xbox 360 but there are planned updates to GTA Online for all platforms.

Previously created jobs will also be transferred over to the new platforms as well as the ability for 30-man GTA Online sessions.
