Grand Theft Auto V

Game have announced their exclusive special edition of Rockstar’s widely anticipated Grand Theft Auto V,  which hits stores country-wide on September 17th.
Atomic Blimp
The special edition includes an exclusive collector’s SteelBook with never before seen artwork of the title’s main protagonists, as well as a blueprint style map of the city of Los Santos, as well as the wider ranges of Blaine County, the game’s setting. The map’s due to contain ‘cryptic markings’ which denote the location of various fash-cash points, as well as other ‘points of interest for the up and coming entrepreneur.

The special edition’s digital content is set to include stunt-plane trails, a unique special ability boost for each protagonist, additional weapons and bonus outfits, tattoos and discounts from shop keepers. You’re also guaranteed the Atomic Blimp in game vehicle, which we have to admit looks like it’d make for a diverting hour or two.

Special editions have disappointed in the past (hello Arkham Asylum) so we’ll hold onto our reservations until we’ve had a hands on look, especially at the price of £59.99.

I don’t see how this is any different from the regular special edition, I really think that they are just misusing the word “EXCLUSIVE” like it so often is.

I’ve not yet seen what’s in the regular special edition, Ace. I’ve been distinctly unimpressed by special editions in the past.

Here is the Special Edition *and* Collector’s edition according to Rockstar Games

I too have been unimpressed with special editions as of late. It seems that special editions are no longer about giving the customer something cool and functional, but about making it as cheaply as possible so that the profits are that much higher.
