Great news for GTA Online players, as Rockstar have just announced that they are now starting to deposit the sum of GTA$500,000 in to players accounts.
People who will qualify for The Stimulus Package are those who played the game in October of this year and may have experienced some initial issues with the game when it was first released. The company behind the massively popular Grand Theft Auto 5 game have said that they expect that it may take up to 2 days for everyone who qualifies for the money to have it deposited in to their online accounts. People who have recently logged in are reporting that the GTA$500,000 has been paid already, so you might want to check now.
Below are the ways of how you may have qualified, which Rockstar first announced last month:
- 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.
[Update] Just checked my account and I have had the deposit of GTA$500,000 placed in to my account. Note that if you haven’t logged in for a couple of days, you will have to install a small update for your console first. The update is 59MB on the Xbox 360.
