It looks like Rockstar is trying to make good for the problems that GTA Online has seen since launch. Now that things are getting smoother for the online mode open world, a “Stimulus Package” is being readied for all players, and will contain $500k of GTA Online cash.
Starting as early as next week, Rockstar will begin dropping cash into the accounts of all GTA Online players with two deposits of $250k. Today though, Rockstar had no specific dates to announce. Said to be a compensatory action for the cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress during the first days of GTA Online, this cash will get you a large chunk of the way towards luxurious living spaces or high-end vehicles.
There are a few stipulations though:
- 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.
