In a blog post, Rockstar has outlined how returning players will be rewarded. The Rail Gun aside, there are unique cars, activities, a brutal-sounding hatchet and a cool one million GTA dollars to be had (though odds are if you're a returning player, you're flush with cash already). Find a full breakdown at the bottom of the page, plus some screenie-weenies.

Players who import their save files will also be able to transfer any Jobs they've created for GTA Online, though you'll have to leave behind your old leaderboard placings, Snapmatics, playlists and bookmarks. Purchasers of the original Special and Collector's Editions will find all their edition-exclusive gear ready and waiting for them on Xbox One; those who didn't invest will be able to acquire these goodies by spending in-game cash.

There's a pinch more insight on how the versions differ at a technical level. The Xbox One version of GTA 5 supports 30-head Free Roam and competitive multiplayer - up from a 16-head limit on Xbox 360. Its "vastly enhanced graphics and many other gameplay updates" also mean that items designed specifically for the new version (such as the below) may not be doable on Xbox 360.

Will you take the plunge? I like rail guns, but I'm not sure I'm fussed about an Xbox One port of a game I wasn't hugely thrilled by to begin with.

New Events & Rewards
Encounter new events happening all across the world, and complete the challenges they present to unlock exclusive new vehicles like the menacing Imponte Duke O'Death and that veritable GTA classic bird of flight, the Dodo seaplane.

Murder Mystery
As Michael, follow a trail of cryptic clues to unravel a grisly murder mystery. Put the clues together and you'll unlock two Noir Style Filters, which will give your Story Mode gameplay and Snapmatic photos the feel of a gritty old school crime classic.

Weapons: The Rail Gun & Hatchet
Obliterate your adversaries with the high-powered, high-velocity Rail Gun. This piece of experimental military technology also has its own set of Shooting Range Challenges at your local Ammu-Nation shooting range. Or hack and slash foes up close and personal with the brutal Hatchet melee weapon.

Wildlife Photography Challenge
There are new species of animals across Los Santos and Blaine County, and the LS Tourist Board needs someone to document them. As Franklin, catalog unique animal species scattered across the map to unlock the special Kraken Sub.

Stock Car Races
Win a series of new Stock Car Races to earn unique custom Muscle Cars adorned with logos from some of the companies that made this country great.

Monkey Mosaics
A mysterious street artist is tagging walls all across town with his simian-inspired silhouettes. Track down and photograph them all to earn new monkey outfits (available to all players) and a special Go Go Monkey Blista exclusively for returning players.

New Vehicles and More
Grind up the Los Santos freeways (and over anybody in your path) with the Cheval Marshall monster truck and take to the skies in a faster and more maneuverable Blimp, compliments of Xero Gas.

There will also be a bounty of content for all players, new and returning, to discover - including a fleet of classic GTA vehicles and a few more surprises we've got planned that you'll have to discover for yourself come game day. And as previously announced, current GTA Online players on PS3 and Xbox 360 will be able to pick up where they left off, transferring their characters and progression seamlessly to their choice of PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC (Social Club membership required).
