The $150 Collector’s Edition of Grand Theft Auto V comes with a hat, a security-deposit bag, and a blueprint map of the fictional Los Santos county the game takes place in, but that’s just the physical stuff. In a post on its blog today, developer Rockstar detailed the digital goods that come with the Collector’s Edition and $80 Special Edition.

Those premium packages, which are due out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Sept. 17,  will give players access to additional weapons, outfits, tattoos, and more in the open-world crime title. The in-game gun shops will always have a .50-caliber pistol and a shotgun in stock with unique customization options and attachments. The bonus content also includes a hammer that players can use to wreck faces in melee combat.

Players can also customize their characters with clothing bonuses. The Special Edition digital content ensures players get a 20 percent discount at any store and includes unique clothing items.

The three heroes of GTA V also have unique abilities that they can activate once a special meter fills up. For example, Franklin is a skilled driver who can slow down time. The bonus content that comes with the Special Edition version of the game enables the characters to fill their special meters 25 percent faster.

Rockstar is also including custom characters for Grand Theft Auto Online in the $150 Collector’s Edition only. Those characters include Grand Theft Auto IV hero Niko Bellic and characters from Grand Theft Auto III.

Finally, the developer will offer a special Stunt Plane Trials mode that features five unique challenges for players to swoop through a maze of checkpoints in the game’s agile stunt plane. Players can compete on leaderboards with their friends.
