It has been well documented that the GTA V Online experience hasn’t gone as smoothly as gamers had first thought. Players have been having troubles getting into servers, data has gone missing and cars have vanished out of garages for no apparent reason.
Luckily, Rockstar feels your pain. The developer has decided to take the first steps in remedying the situation, by offering a generous cash handout with no strings attached. You have to have bought the game at launch or played throughout October, but other than that – you’ll soon be able to check your bank balance with a cool $500,000 deposit free of charge courtesy of Rockstar.
It may not go the full length into pleasing all of you, but it is certainly a nice gesture from Rockstar, given that some critics have been saying that money is too hard to come by in the online portion. But with an $500,000 cash injection available to you, you should be able to at least put a deposit down on that lush property that you have always been meaning to buy.
Rockstar has revealed the exact terms and conditions on their website. The $500,000 is going to be divided into two $250,000 payments in order to keep the game balanced among all players according to the developer. The first payment is due to go live at some point this week, although Rockstar hasn’t set an exact time when this will happen.
What we can tell you though, is that all players will first need to download the upcoming 1.04 patch, which is set to include functionality to make the $500,000 cash payments work successfully. The update will be going live on both Xbox 360 and PS3, and should fix up further bugs in the game to make your experience more pleasurable.
