Is GTA+ Actually Worth It?

Rockstar Games sold over 195 million Grand Theft Auto V copies as of December 2023, according to an official Take-Two report. Not only that, but the entire GTA franchise has crossed the 420 million units sold threshold, making it one of the most valuable IPs in media entertainment history. With GTA 6 on the horizon, we can only guess how it will perform 10 years after its 2025 release.

GTA Online is a behemoth of a game in terms of exposure and reach. It's like it was tailor-made for almost every category of gamer out there: streamers, content creators, roleplayers, or casual people who just want to chill at the end of the day and have fun while trying not to get run over by some 13-year-old with a sports car or a tank.

GTA+ is an online monthly membership for players who want exclusive GTA Online benefits. It was first introduced in March 2022 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Since then, Rockstar Games has added a ton of stuff for members. For instance, this week, the developers are offering the Ocelot Jugular. The 4-door sports sedan is available at the Vinewood Car Club or the Legendary Motorsport website, which you can access on your in-game iFruit phone.

The Jugular was added as part of the Diamond Casino & Resort update in October 2019. If you're not a GTA+ subscriber, it could set you back a whopping $1,225,000. However, you could get it discounted at $918,750 if you finish the Diamond Casino Heist Finale mission as a leader with this vehicle selected. Provided the devs haven't removed this feature.

The Ocelot Jugular is inspired by the real-life Jaguar XE SV Project 8. This baby donned Jaguar Land Rover's 5.0-liter Supercharged V8 that produced 592 hp or 600 ps. It has an 8-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive transmission system. With a 200 mph or 322 kph top speed, it can go from 0-60 mph (97 kph) in 3.3 seconds or reach 62 mph or 100 kph in 3.4 seconds.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, you're also getting the Soft Pink Pearl Chameleon Paint and Pink Prismatic Chameleon Wheel Paint to spruce up your ride and take your date to a romantic location like the casino.

GTA+ members who flirt with Lady Luck at the Diamond Casino & Resort and take on missions will receive twice the GTA$ and RP. Also, the Casino Penthouse is 40% off.

Lastly, benefits include access to special GTA+ Shark Cards with an extra 15% GTA$ bonus and a monthly half-a-million bonus. There are more things to take advantage of, like exclusive taxi services, the Gun Van, free vehicle requests, more garage storage for your rides, and free CEO/VIP abilities.

But the most exciting thing is that you can play GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition on Xbox and PlayStation, and GTA: Liberty City Stories and Chinatown Wars on iOS and Android. GTA+ is $6 a month, and it doesn't sound like such a bad deal. But you'd have to be a passionate fan of GTA Online to get everything out of the experience.
