GTA V Online users to get compensation as a result of problems after launch


If you’re amongst the many who have had problems with GTA online, you’re in line for a windfall in the game

Given some of the recent technical issues during the first days of GTA Online, it’s understandable that a few people have been annoyed, but the lads at Rockstar have decided to hand out some free cash in the game to make up for it.

They’re hoping that there won’t be any further problems with the latest update, and then they will be dropping a cool half a million GTA$ in the GTA Online bank accounts of all players this month, starting as early as next week.

The money will appear in the form of two deposits of $250,000, so that you don’t spend it all in the one place, of course.

For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in the first days of GTA Online, Rockstar hope that the pile of GTA$ will help to facilitate a fresh start or make your life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet.

Here are the main details that you need to know about the cash:

1) 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.
2) Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which is expected 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 Rockstar will provide the cash to players.
3) Keep an eye on the Rockstar Newswire to see when each deposit is made.
4) 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.
