The rewards offered to subscribers will rotate monthly. You’ll need to claim them through the GTA Online web browser before the end of the month to permanently add them to your online profile.

Rockstar says GTA+ perks will be provided in addition to regular GTA Online events, which will continue to run as normal.

At $5.99 per month, the rolling cost of GTA+ won’t break the bank, but an annual subscription will set you back just under $72 / £54 / AU$95. It’s not cheap.

The recently released PS5 and Xbox Series X editions of GTA Online usually cost around $19.99 / £17.99 / AU$30.95, although you can currently pick up these editions for just $9.99 / AU$8.99 £ / AU$15.47 on a three-month contract. , post-launch discount period. If you played GTA 5 multiplayer on PS4, you can also claim the PS5 version of GTA Online for free until June 14.

This means that a 12 month subscription to this new premium service will cost more than triple the price of the base GTA Online game. Considering that it only includes additional in-game bonuses and perks, rather than new features, it’s relatively quite expensive. GTA Online obsessives might enjoy it, but regular players will likely only dive into it for a few months at a time.
