Rockstar announces a 500,000 GTA$ 'stimulus package' for GTA Online players

Gift to rebalance the game's economy

Rockstar is offering a rather hefty cash bonus for anyone who's played GTA Online in the turbulent launch period.

They will be dropping 500,000 GTA$ into the virtual accounts of everyone who has played GTA Online during October in two 250,000 GTA$ deposits.

The major cash injection is in part in order to balance the game's online economy but it is also in part an apology and compensation to players for the technical troubles experienced since it launched on October the 1st. Rockstar announces a 500,000 GTA$ 'stimulus package' for GTA Online players

As always there are some conditions to the gift and Rockstar will announce the dates of the deposits on the Rockstar Newswire soon. The conditions are as follows:

  • 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 500,000 GTA$ deposit in your in-game bank account.

  • Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTA V 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.

  • Each of the two 250,000 GTA$ 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.
