Touting improved graphics and performance, as well as “enhanced gameplay,” GTAV’s next-generation update is coming in March of next year across Xbox Series X|S and PS5. It will, of course, include the game’s wildly popular multiplayer mode, GTA Online. Check it out below.

Sony’s PS Blog highlights some additional information GTAV players should find interesting regarding bonuses for the game’s multiplayer mode in the build-up to launch:
