We all know that Grand Theft Auto: Online's launch hasn't gone exactly as planned. Crashing servers, deleted characters, progress lost... But don't worry Rockstar feels your pain, to the tune of half a million in-game GTA$ in the Grand Theft Auto Online: Stimulus Package
Now you won't be getting it as one lump sum however. Rockstar plans on splitting cash into two payments of GTA$250,000 each with the first arriving by the end of next week (after they're sure they've fixed the issues causing game progress loss).
- 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.
- Rockstar will announce via the 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.
