GTA 5 Special Edition, Collector's Edition up for preorder - full details of the goodies here

Includes a remote control blimp, exclusive GTA Online content

Let's take a moment from marvelling/railing at Xbox One to consider a little game called Grand Theft Auto 5. Rockstar has just released details of the GTA 5 Collector and Special Editions, which are available for preorder now from participating retailers.

Get the full breakdown below the image. Nice inside box coverart, innit? I'm quite a fan of the cap, too. The SE will retail for $80 in the US, while the CE goes for $150 - prices for other regions are still to be confirmed. Preorder and you'll unlock the Atomic Blimp for in-game shenanigans. As Rockstar puts it, "with every pre-order, players gain the ability to pilot the most iconic and leisurely aircraft in the Los Santos skies".


Special Edition
- Collectible steel-book with exclusive artwork, featuring custom colour and metallic treatments
- Blueprint Map; a 21" x 27" map which displays a blueprint view of Los Santos and Blaine County
