It was well-known that the start of Grand Theft Auto V's online multiplayer aspect would lead to Rockstar's servers imploding from the amount of players tagging in to give it a try. Technical issues arose quickly, from missions not starting, characters being deleted, and in extreme cases having singleplayer saved games become lost. After nearly two weeks of stabilization attempts, Rockstar is going to grant a special stimulus package to players who have played or will play Grand Theft Auto Online this month.
Coming in the form of two $250,000 in-game money packages, Rockstar plans on having solid dates announced as soon as possible, with the first deposit possible the end of next week. There is some extra info for the stimulus packages that Rockstar wants to make known:
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$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.
Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which Rockstar expects to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which Rockstar will be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.
Rockstar 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.
