May 21, 2007 - Not that any of us are all that surprised, but today Rockstar announced that a special edition version of Grand Theft Auto IV will be hitting store shelves alongside the regular version of the much-anticipated sequel. Come October 16 in North America and October 19 in Europe, fans of rampant crime-sprees can have their feast of felonies in two different flavors.
The Grand Theft Auto IV Special Edition comes inside a metal safety deposit box and contains a number of items besides the game itself. An exclusive art book will showcase production artwork used on the game and a soundtrack CD will highlight the music from "top artists" that is featured in the game. In addition, Rockstar fans will find themselves the proud owners of a Rockstar branded keychain and duffel bag.
Pre-ordering has already started for the Grand Theft Auto Special Edition, which will retail for $89.99 when it releases this fall.
