Rockstar Games, who are the company behind the incredibly successful Grand Theft Auto V, have just announced that they will be giving every GTA V Online player a whopping half a million GTA$ as of next week.
The company have stated that this Stimulus Package, is their way of saying thank you for being patient with the initial issues related to the Online version of the game going live last week, which suffered from cloud server errors, connection issues, lost game progress and characters in these first days. If you were one of the many thousands of players that tried to play during the first few days, then you will know exactly what they mean. Happily though, most of these issues have been dealt with and online game play is now pretty smooth and a hell of a lot of fun.
Players will get the money transferred directly into their Online accounts in two instalments of GTA$250,000 with the first coming as early as next week, but will have to first download a new title update first which will also be coming sometime next week.
Read the points below to make sure that you qualify for this:
- 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.
Spend it wisely people.
