If you’ve been playing GTA Online since the mode was released this month it’s likely that you’ve ran into quite a few issues. It’s an incredibly fun mode, but players have lost their progress and characters causing quite the damper on the experience.
Rockstar understands that it has been a bit of a pain to start, and they’re about to make things much more pleasant for their fans. Over this course of this month, GTA Online players will receive a total of $500,000 in GTA$, the in-game currency, for their troubles.
The in-game cash will come in the form of two-deposits of $250,000. While specific dates have not been announced just yet, Rockstar is planning to reveal them in the near future.
Below, we’ve outlined how you can find yourself eligible for Rockstar’s stimulus package.
- 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.
