Rockstar has announced a pair of limited editions for Grand Theft Auto 5, each featuring a variety of exclusive digital and physical items.

The GTA 5 Special Edition features a copy of the full game, alongside a collectible steelbook, a 21.5" x 26.75" map of Los Santos and Blaine County, and various digital items, including a boost to each character's special ability boost, Stunt Plane Trials, bonus outfits, extra tattoos and additional weapons.

Meanwhile, GTA 5's Collector's Edition includes all of the above, plus a 10.75" 'security deposit bag' (a wallet, in other words), a Los Santos cap, classic GTA characters for use in GTA 5's online multiplayer and additional vehicles.

Neither edition has yet been priced for the UK, but in the US, the Special Edition will retail for $79.99 and the Collector's Edition for $149.99.

Meanwhile, players who pre-order any edition of GTA 5, including the standard retail edition, will be offered access to the Atomic Blimp - an in-game flyable blimp.
