GTA V Xbox 360 owners to get bonus content for Xbox One game upgrade

If you own an Xbox 360 copy of Grand Theft Auto V and you also own an Xbox One, you may be wondering why you should get the upcoming HD port of the hit open world action game for Microsoft's latest game console (besides the obvious graphical improvements). Today, Rockstar answered that question by revealing loads of exclusive content that can only be accessed by players of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions of the game who trade up for the Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions.

Much of the extra content will be available to players when they finish specific missions and challenges, including vehicles like the Dodo seaplane, the Kraken Sub, and the Xero Gas Blimp. There will also be exclusive weapons like the Rail Gun to play with. And anyone who preorders the Xbox One or Playstation 4 versions will get $1 million in GTA in-game cash to spend. That'll buy a lot of guns!

Rockstar added:

"There will also be a bounty of content for all players, new and returning, to discover - including a fleet of classic GTA vehicles and a few more surprises we've got planned that you'll have to discover for yourself come game day. And as previously announced, current GTA Online players on PS3 and Xbox 360 will be able to pick up where they left off, transferring their characters and progression seamlessly to their choice of PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC."

Grand Theft Auto V for the Xbox One and Playstation 4 will be released on November 18 while the long awaited PC version will follow on January 27. If you own the Xbox 360 version, will you be trading up to get the Xbox One upgrade?
