Grand Theft Auto 5’s Special Edition bonuses
Rockstar Games’ Indian game distributor—e-xpress Interactive—has announced the pre-orders for the Special Edition of Grand Theft Auto V. The Special Edition contains a steelbook, exclusive artwork, a blueprint map and some in-game goodies like ability boosts, vehicles, side-missions and weapons. Pre-orders are available from online shopping website Flipkart and brick-and-mortar store Game The Store, and costs Rs 3,299 for both consoles.
The exclusive artwork in the special edition is a double-sided, never-before-seen artwork of the main characters of the upcoming game—Michael, Trevor and Franklin. The Blueprint Map is a 21.5 x 26.75 inch map that shows a blueprint view of the city of Los Santos and the surrounding Blaine County. It also has markings that indicate fast cash and other points of interest for up-and-coming entrepreneurs.
