GTA Online players will receive the first of two 'stimulus package' deposits of in-game cash this week, Rockstar has said.
Rockstar previously announced plans to provide every GTA Online player with in-game cash as compensation for the issues that have plagued the online game since its launch on October 1.
Each GTA 5 owner who plays the game within the month of October will be gifted half a million GTA$ in two deposits. That's equivalent to a real world offering of 6.75, the price users can opt to pay to purchase a Bull Shark cash card worth 500,000 GTA$.
The first $250,000 deposit will turn up in players' in-game bank accounts "this week", Rockstar has confirmed.
The second deposit is planned to happen "by the end of the month".Check here for more information on how it will all work.
We said in our GTA Online appraisal: "With Rockstar planning frequent DLC and updates, and user-created missions on the way, GTA Online could have a long shelf life. The only let-downs at the moment are the lack of co-op heist missions, a slightly bloated interface, and some strange design decisions like being unable to tag stolen high-end cars and make them your personal vehicle. Otherwise, this is a supremely fun online toy box with a remarkable amount of variety in its missions - if you can connect, that is."
