Grand Theft Auto V special editions have some fan service


Niko Bellic can be your dad in GTA Online

Rockstar has a blog post up discussing the special and collector's editions of Grand Theft Auto V. It's the usual stuff, as far as digital content is concerned -- a couple of weapons, some vehicles, and more cosmetic options for the three protagonists. Then there's stunt plane trials and a 25 percent boost for the characters' special abilities which include slow-mo shooting and driving, and a fit of rage, in the case of Trevor. This extra, however, caught my eye:

"GTA Online introduces a new spin on traditional character creation with the hereditary-based creation system. Select your character’s appearance by choosing your parent’s heritage, then use the gene dominance meter to dial-in which parent your appearance favors more. Additionally, you'll customize your character's daily activities -- everything from family time to illegal work and sports to couch potato hours all have an impact on your character’s appearance and skill set (and you can always rank up your skill stats more via gameplay). As part of the Collector’s Edition package, you'll get Niko Bellic, along with both Claude and Misty from Grand Theft Auto III to use as parent options within the character creation system."

Mighty strange. The special edition of GTA V is $79.99 and the collector's edition is $149.99. Physical bonuses include a blueprint map, a cap, and a security deposit bag. Order here, if you have that kind of money to spend on such things.
