GTAV Midnight Launch Details

Posted on September 13 2013, 12:35pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

If you're in North America or the UK use our official Midnight Launch Locator below to find the retail store nearest you that is hosting a midnight launch event for GTAV.

For fans in the NYC area, we'll be hosting a special midnight opening at the GameStop location in Union Square.  Stop by and check out the custom Bravado Banshee, score some limited GTAV promo gear and of course get your hands on a copy of the game promptly at midnight.

We'll also be visiting GameStop stores in and around New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle & Boston. If you pre-ordered at a 24 hour Walmart location, get a Grand Theft Auto V logo keychain (while supplies last). Best Buy will be giving out exclusive character posters at their midnight launch events (while supplies last). Additionally, locations across Canada, the UK, and Europe will also be hosting midnight launch events. For details on special midnight launch events in your area, check with your local store for more info and be sure to let us know in the comments.

      Hope this page will also be running for the coming GTA 5 PC-Release mid of April 2014 ;)
      A midnight-event for PC would be a cool thing as well.

            Please do not add micro- payments for GTA V online because it's just going to ruin the whole experience and for the people who don't have the money to get micro- payments they are going to be feel left behind. There would be no point in even playing the missions then because you already have the money you need to buy better apartments / houses, fast cars and the best guns.

                  Please give us a clue on the releas of Android iFruit app. I hate the fact on release day I got popups telling me to download the app and I still over a week have no update. It is like the whole thing is being ignored.

                    would love to know when the ifruit app is coming to android. would love an answer other than "soon" too. not to be that guy but this is kinda ridiculous....most people use android phones and it's only been released for apple products. any chance of this coming out before we all finish the game and defeat the purpose of the app?

                      Please get rid of the microtransactions, and fix the freezing issues for singleplayer.

                                I'm a lil pissed the blueprint map was folded. It's also made of cheap paper. I was hoping for a decent quality, rolled up blueprint, I was gonna have it framed and love it forever.

                                        @viper1744 Not sure what you mean, mate - but you're certainly permitted to promote and link to your Crew here, so long as you're not spamming the same message over and over. Good luck!
