What is GTA+ in GTA Online? Cost, benefits, and more

Rockstar has found a new way to monetise Grand Theft Auto Online, but only for next-gen console players.
What is GTA+ in GTA Online? Cost, benefits, and more
Grand Theft Auto Online keeps racking up piles of money for Rockstar Games, and it looks set to continue that trend with the announcement of GTA+, a new subscription-based service that provides constant benefits for its users.

According to Rockstar Games, being a GTA+ will get you $500k in GTA Online money for each month you are subscribed, RP bonuses, member-only discounts, a chance to claim properties, and more. 

Benefits besides the guaranteed monthly $500k vary depending on when players subscribe. There are some caveats to GTA+, so let's get down to everything you need to know.

Who can subscribe to GTA+ in GTA Online?

GTA Online is available on a wide variety of consoles, from last-gen ones (PS4 and Xbox One) to current-gen hardware (Xbox Series X/S and PS5), as well as PC. The multiplayer component was even accessible on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 until this past December.

Sadly, for those playing on PC or last-gen consoles, GTA+ will only be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X players. 

GTA+ subscription cost

If you're eligible to join the GTA+ program, the cost will be $5.99 a month. No plans for annual fees were revealed by Rockstar at this time.

The only requirements on top of having an eligible console are to own a copy of either Grand Theft Auto V or GTA Online and a platform account with a valid registered method of payment for the platform on which you choose to purchase your GTA+ Membership.

To join GTA+, simply check the PS Store from your PS5 or access the Microsoft Store if you're an Xbox player, and pay the initial sign-up $5.99 fee.

GTA+ rewards and start date

  • The Principe Deveste Eight — along with a complimentary Hao’s Special Works upgrade for it before it is made available to purchase by the general public — plus the HSW Orange Trip and HSW CMYK Glitch Liveries.
  • The Auto Shop located in La Mesa, introduces an assortment of gameplay updates from Los Santos Tuners. Current Auto Shop owners can relocate to La Mesa at no additional cost.

  • 3X GTA$ and RP on Hao’s Special Works Race Series.
  • 2X Car Meet Rep on the Street Race Series.

Expect every month to feature new exclusive GTA+ rewards but don't worry if you're not interested or can't sub to the service: "all GTA+ benefits are provided in addition to our regular GTA Online events, which will continue as normal for all players."
