Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online arrive for PlayStation 5 today with a host of new improvements for new and returning players — plus, GTA Online is free* exclusively on PlayStation 5 through June 14 — meaning there’s never been a better time to experience all that GTA Online has to offer. From the new Career Builder’s Criminal Careers through to GTA Online’s latest adventure, The Contract featuring Dr. Dre, as well as the game’s 40+ massive updates since launch, there’s something in GTA Online for everyone.

GTAV and GTA Online with the power of PlayStation 5
Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online go further on PlayStation 5 with a host of features that take special advantage of the PlayStation 5 console.
The power of PlayStation 5 delivers new levels of fidelity and performance, allowing for the new graphics modes to deliver up to 4K resolution, up to 60 frames per second gameplay, HDR lighting options, ray tracing, texture upgrades, and more.
Jump into the action faster thanks to PlayStation 5’s SSD, with improved loading times allowing the world of Los Santos and Blaine County to load in faster than ever before.
Feel every moment of the action through the DualSense wireless controller’s adaptive triggers and advanced haptic feedback, giving players the ability to experience new sensations such as changes in the road surface texture, additional sensations from specific weather effects, directional damage, feedback from explosions, and more.
Hear the action with pinpoint precision with Tempest 3D AudioTech — the throttle of a stolen supercar, the rattle of nearby gunfire, the roar of a helicopter overhead, and more.
Story Mode and GTA Online Character Transfers
Kickstart your criminal Career
It all starts with the new Career Builder. For new players, or anyone who’d like a fresh start, the Career Builder helps you get set up with the equipment you need to kick off your rise through the criminal ranks across Los Santos and Blaine County.
You begin by choosing from one of four criminal career paths in GTA Online: Executive, Gunrunner, Nightclub Owner, or Biker. From there, you’ll receive a cool GTA$4,000,000 to invest in crafting your illicit business, starting with a business property, a vehicle, and a weapon — with enough spare change for some upgrades and maybe a little left over.
Once you’re comfortable with your choices, head straight onto the streets of Los Santos to take on the missions and get your business established. Of course, you can expand your business at any time and take on new careers as you progress up the city’s criminal food chain.

Continuing your journey on PlayStation 5
If you have been working to build up your career over previous generations, continuing your journey on PlayStation 5 is easy. If you already have a Rockstar Games Social Club account, you will be able to migrate your GTA Online character progress from a previous generation console to PS5 upon loading up the game. This one-time migration includes any Characters, GTA$, Progression, Stats, Vehicles, Properties, Weapons, Clothing, and Player-Created Jobs***.
PS4 and Xbox One players will be able to transfer both their GTAV Story Mode progress and their current GTA Online characters and progression to PS5 with a one-time migration.
Players can transfer their Story Mode progress by uploading a save to the Rockstar Games Social Club. To begin this process, enter GTAV on your current PS4 account and go to the Game tab of the Pause Menu. From there, select the Upload Save Game option. Please note, you can only store one game save per platform at a time and saves will remain available to download for 90 days.
