It marks a major addition to the service which also recently saw The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Untitled Goose Game added to the line-up. Earlier today, Grand Theft Auto Online was updated to add the Rune Zhaba vehicle as well as giving events double and triple rewards. In addition, Game Pass Ultimate and Gold subscribers can access Dirt Rally 2.0 during the Free Play Days promotion that will be running until January 5th.
If you are yet to play Grand Theft Auto V, a game that hasn’t left the charts since its release, then you can check out what Peter thought in our review from 2013.
GTA V doesn’t break new ground. It’s not going to change the world. It is, after all, the fifth numbered title in a well loved series and for the most part it is simply delivering more of what the developers must know the fans want to see. To expect otherwise is idiocy. But it is engaging, compelling, interesting, clever, funny and packed with things to do and see. It’s a personal story, or several personal stories, set in a magnificent world that ebbs and flows with thousands of people who all seem to be living their own personal stories. It’s a genuine landmark event in the history of videogames and it’s one that you definitely shouldn’t miss.

The amount of time GTA V has spent in the top half of the sales chart I reckon just about everyone in to gaming will have the game.
