Rockstar Gifting $500k In Online Money To Apologize For GTA 5 Online Gameplay Issues
Rockstar Games, developer of the fantastic GTA 5 have often apologised for the technical issues that were involved with GTA Online’s launch. They are now extending that apology and giving gamers who were attempting to play GTA Online since day one 500,000 GTA dollars.
The stimulus package is an “I’m sorry” gift from Rockstar Games for the cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters during the first days of GTA Online.
In order to keep the current worldwide in-game economy balanced, we will be providing this GTA$ to players via two deposits of $250,000. We will announce specific dates as soon as possible, but are currently hoping to be able to make the first deposit by the end of next week (after we’ve confirmed that issues causing game progress loss have been fixed) with the second installment to happen by the end of the month. For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in these first days of GTA Online, we hope this GTA$ helps to facilitate a fresh start or makes your continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet.
Before receiving your GTA Online cash, though, gamers are instructed to install the upcoming GTAV title update (1.04), which will allow Rockstar Games to provide the GTA$ stimulus cash to players. It will also fix vehicle purchase loss issues, and gamers can expect to see it next week.
There’s a couple of pre-requisites for receiving the cash donation. You need to have logged in and played GTA Online at some point this month (October 2013).
