Grand Theft Auto V Release Date for Xbox One, PS4 Announced [Update: New Trailer]

The long awaited PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Grand Theft Auto V will be arriving on November 18th, developer Rockstar Games has just announced.

Sadly, those eager to pick up the game for PC will have a little bit of extra waiting to do, as the open-world action game won't be available to the "gaming master race" until January 27th.

There's going to be plenty of incentive for those who've already played the game on last-gen hardware to pick up this new-and-improved version as well, thanks to a number of enhancements. "A host of new, exclusive content also awaits for players returning from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions including rare versions of classic vehicles to collect from across the Grand Theft Auto series such as the Dukes, the Dodo Seaplane and a faster, more maneuverable Blimp; activities including wildlife photography and new shooting range challenges, new weapons and more," Rockstar explained.

In addition, the game's online mode is getting some improvements, too. "Enhancements to Grand Theft Auto Online include an increased player count, with online play now for up to 30 players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. All existing gameplay upgrades and Rockstar-created content released since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online will also be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC with much more to come."

Will you be picking up a next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V when it launches in a few months' time? If so, for which platform?
