GTA Online Players to get Half a million in-game cashRockstar Games

Rockstar Games will give every online player of the Grand Theft Auto V a stimulus package of 500,000 GTA dollars in October.

The gaming company has decided to dole out half a million dollars in order to make-up with the players who went through a list of in-game problems and server connectivity errors.

"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," Rockstar said in astatement.

The money will be delivered in two instalments of $250,000 each so that the in-game economy is not affected. According to the company, the first deposit will be made around 20 October and the second one by the end of the month. 

"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 instalment to happen by the end of the month," the company added.

Some pointers given by Rockstar regarding the in-game cash include:

-The player should have to play GTA Online at any point of time in October to get the $500,000 in-game cash.

-The players would have to install the upcoming GTA 5 title update, which is expected to arrive by next week. The title update (1.04) is said to fix the vehicle purchase loss and a functionality through which the amount will be given.

-The instalment of $250,000 should appear automatically in the bank accounts of the players

-The announcement for instalments would be given on Rockstar Newswire.
