GTA 5 PS5 PlayStation 5 1

We already know that the PlayStation 5 version of GTA Online will feature a new location at the LS Car Meet, which will allow you to upgrade select cars with performance improvements that will make them faster than was possible on the PS4. And now Rockstar has confirmed that anyone who transfers their character from the last-gen console to Sony’s new-gen system will get a free car, specifically souped up with some of these console exclusive improvements.

“Those eager to continue their journey on the latest generation consoles will get a fully converted Karin S95 souped up by the experts at Hao’s Special Works, along with a Hao’s Special Work Racing Outfit, and set of new Chameleon paints usable on all vehicles,” a Rockstar Newswire post explains. We’re fascinated to see just how fast these new rides will go, and how they’ll compare to the Fastest Cars already available in the game.

Will you be transferring your progress across, or starting over with the new Career Builder? Remember, GTA Online will be free to claim on PS5 for three months, and if you want the single player campaign it’ll only cost you $9.99/£8.75 until 14th June. All this, alongside a free souped up car and smaller file size footprint, is making this return trip to Los Santos look better and better.
