"Starting at midnight PlayStation 5 players will be able to redeem GTA Online on PS5 for FREE on the PS5 Store. No PlayStation Plus is required to download, you’ll only need it to play the game. It’s free to keep forever."


GTA Online upgrade to the PS5 version is free to keep to anyone who already owns the PS4 version of the game, no PS+ required.
There has been a lot of confusion since Sony revealed back in 2020 that GTA Online will be free to PS5 users. Their original announcement came in the form of a video where fans got the impression that you will need a PS+ subscription to grab a free copy of GTA Online on the PS5.
Now that we’re just two weeks away from the release of GTA Online and GTA V on the PlayStation 5, Rockstar has finally come out to set the record straight. On a blog post on the Rockstar Games Newswire, the game will be free to keep for anyone who owns a PlayStation 5 when the game launches on March 15. Players don’t need to own a PS4 copy of GTA V or GTA Online, nor do they need a PS5 copy of GTA Online. While the game is free to keep, players will still need an active PS+ subscription to play the game and connect to online servers.
There’s a catch though – the game is only free to keep to anyone owning a PS5 within the first three months of release. That means anyone trying to redeem GTA Online for free on the PS5 won’t be able to do so when the date starts reading June 15. That’s a very long period covered, if you ask me, so anyone who has access to a PS5 shouldn’t miss the opportunity to catch a free copy of GTA Online on their pristine next-gen console.

Is this free to play, or do you have to already own the PS4 version?
The online version is free if you claim it, using ps5 store, and only playable on the ps5. You can claim it, but you cant play it on the ps4 i think.

Dude, you're gonna shit when you see everything they've added. It's a ridiculously immense amount of content.

Its not available yet. It will go live on midnight.
It is midnight here :p

But let’s how it works because PS5 free exclusives can’t be purchased without a PS5 because it doesn’t show in PS App or PC Store.

I can access it easily.

You need to click on ps5 games to purchase it.
? I’m not sure what you are trying to say.

I can access the PS5 Store on PC or PS App… without need a direct link.
GTA Online probably wont show there but in PS5 console store.

Ghostwire is not free either.

Try to find GoT PS5 free edition… it is free to anybody that has a PS5 but you can only purchase it if you use the Store inside the console.

Only ps4 users cant access it, since you need actual ps5 store for the console. Mobile/pc is easy, since its browser.

I couldn't find it on the PS App or Web store. Found it easily in the store on a PS5.

You need an actual PS5… only accessing the PS Store via PS5 you can find it.

Unless you can share a link in PC web store the case is like I said… it is already available on PS5.

Why would they allow you to redeem this early? Isn't it out next week?
So 10 million people downloading on PSN doesn't slow things down on launch Day. Space them out.

Anyway delighted I'm on past and get the online free. €10 for the single player way better then I expected also.

More peeps to milk for those GTA bucks. I played it on PC long time ago, back then there were people who had money guns that would just shoot millions around. Good times.

I am terrified of Microsoft and am always concerned about them.

So gta online is free but gta V is not? Or are they linked somehow?
They were linked until now (GTA Online was the online multiplayer game mode of GTA), but seems they are separating them as if they were two different games. Now there will be standalone SKU for GTA Online and another one for the GTAV story.

The GTA Online one will be free on PS5 during 5 months. They also have giving $1M of GTA Online money every month to the PS Plus users since the announcement of the next gen version until the release. But I never played GTA Online, I assume you had to play every month to claim that money, I don't think that if you log in now for the first time you'll get all that money there.

That is what I’m saying… you can’t.
You can only see it on PS5.

I can be wrong on that but it shows on PS5 but not on PS store on App or PC.

That is what App shows.



Free games for PS5 only doesn’t show in PC or App Store… PS5 Store is different.
GtaV would be the exception. The regular version doesn't exist, only the premium edition. Which is why we can't see the online version on the app.

Astrobot is still available on mobile or PC.

I think he means free games in the ps plus collection, not a ps5 native game like astrobot.
