Rockstar is all set to provide a “stimulus package” to those who have invested some time in Grand Theft Auto Online this month. The money will come in the form of two, $250,000 in-game deposits. The first should be arriving by the end of next week while the second one should be here by November.
The developer says that the point of the deposits is to keep things balanced and to help gamers “facilitate a fresh start.”
Check out their full statement below:
“In order to keep the current worldwide in-game economy balanced, we will be providing this GTA$ to players via two deposits of $250,000. We will announce specific dates as soon as possible,” said the developer. “For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in these first days of GTA Online, we hope this GTA$ helps to facilitate a fresh start or makes your continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet.”
For exact details on who’s eligible to receive this generous offering, see below:
- 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.
This is yet another example of Rockstar taking care of their fans, like they always do. I love seeing how concerned they are with patching up the online world and they really have done an excellent job at taking care of all the problems that Grand Theft Auto Online presented when it first launched.
Hopefully things will continue to stabilize in the coming weeks as I definitely want to put this newfound fortune to use.
