UPDATE: Megarom has confirmed both editions for South Africa. The Special Edition will set you back R899.00 while the larger Collector’s Edition will sell for R1, 699.00.
ORIGINAL STORY: Rockstar Games’ Twitter account has just unveiled two editions for upcoming GTA V: a Special Edition and a larger Collector’s Edition. Both editions are already available for pre-order in certain territories, but the South African region on Rockstar’s official pre-order page is yet to be updated. We’ve requested more information from local distributor Megarom.
The Special Edition of the game comes in the traditional SteelBook case and packs a number of digital goodies for use in-game. Things like bonus character outfits, extra tattoos, Stunt Plane Trials and additional weapons are detailed. Additionally, the Special Edition will come with a Special Ability Boost: each of the three protagonists has a special ability that can be activated once the ability bar is full – the Special Ability Boost fills the bar 25% faster. It’s not cheating; it’s a Special Edition perk! This edition of the game also comes with a blueprint map of the city and surrounding areas.
The Collector’s Edition comes in a nice large box containing everything in the Special Edition. You also get a Los Santos branded cap as well as a lockable safety deposit bag branded with GTA V and Rockstar logos. Hit the jump for full descriptions.
