I’m not sure what the total line-up of vehicles looks like for GTAV  yet, but I sure as heck would love to take a leisurely cruise around the city in a blimp. Today, developer/publisher Rockstar Games announced two pre-order packages for the game: Special Edition and Collector’s Edition.

The Special Edition will include (as listed in the press release):

The Collector’s Edition will include all of this good stuff, but it will be packaged in special box with the GTAV logo on it.
