Because of all of the technical issues during the release of GTA Online, Rockstar is planning on compensating players in a pretty nice way. A stimulus package will be given for all who have played or will play GTA Online this month. Starting from as early as next week, players will obtain half a million GTA$.
However in order to keep the in-game economy balanced, Rockstar will be providing the GTA$ to players “via two deposits of $250,000.” The actual dates will be announced as soon as possible, but Rockstar has stated that they hope to make the first deposit by the end of next week. The next installment should happen by the end of the month.
Here are the details:
- You must play or have played Grand Theft Auto Online at any time during the month of October 2013 in order to qualify for the GTA$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.
- Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.
- We will announce at the Rockstar Newswire when each deposit is made.
- Each of the two GTA$250,000 deposits will be made by Rockstar and should automatically appear in the in-game GTA Online bank accounts of eligible players. Beyond downloading the forthcoming title update mentioned above, there should not be any additional special action required by eligible players to redeem.
