The improved version of Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be out on November 18, according to the game’s developer, Rockstar. The PC version will follow on January 27, 2015.
The new edition will contain new weapons, vehicles, activities, wildlife, and other technical advancements. Rockstar is promising at least 100 new radio songs, too!
GTA Online player limit is also being bumped up to 30 for PS4/Xbox One players, they say, though there’s still no word on when they’ll be adding the much-requested heist system.
GTA V came out September for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
“Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC will feature a range of major visual and technical upgrades to make Los Santos and Blaine County more immersive than ever. In addition to increased draw distances and higher resolution, players can expect a range of additions and improvements including:
– New weapons, vehicles and activities
– Additional wildlife
– Denser traffic
– New foliage system
– Enhanced damage and weather effects, and much more
Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC will also feature enhanced radio selections with over 100 additional new songs and new DJ mixes from returning DJs across the game’s 17 radio stations.
All players who pre-order the game will get $1,000,000 in-game bonus cash to spend across Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online (GTA$500K each for your Story Mode and for your GTA Online in-game bank accounts).
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.
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.

As good as the game looked on PS3 and Xbox 360, a way better-looking version of the game that would be designed for the newer PlayStation and Xbox as well as the PCs was long expected. That version was announced this past June at the E3 gaming trade show.
