De problemen van GTA Online met constant niet werkende servers was natuurlijk erg vervelend, maar het lijkt erop dat alles nu verleden tijd is en weer naar behoren werkt. Om je een beetje tegemoet te komen zal Rockstar twee stortingen maken aan elke GTA Online speler van maar liefst $250.000, dat is dus $500.000 in totaal.

Dit maakte Rockstar bekend via haar Newswire op de website. Men hoopt de eerste storting aan het eind van deze week rond te hebben, zodra men zeker weet dat het kwijtraken van personages verleden tijd is. Ze hopen dat dit virtuele geld de pijn van het niet online zijn van de servers een beetje verzacht.

Om kans te maken op het geld moet je GTA Online gespeeld hebben in de maand oktober. Een nieuwe update 1.04 wordt snel verwacht en zal de laatste problemen gaan oplossen.

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.

Below are a few more details on how it will work. Stay tuned for tips on how to make the most of GTA$ cash, info on ways and places to earn more cash fast, as well as updates on all the new GTA Online content additions we’re working on for this fall and beyond.

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.

Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV 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.

We will announce at the Rockstar Newswire when each deposit is made.

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. Beyond downloading the forthcoming title update mentioned above, there should not be any additional special action required by eligible players to redeem.
