It's no secret that Rockstar's new online service, Grand Theft Auto Online, has been experiencing some issues and major glitches. Rockstar has admitted that these glitches do exist and has promised to help correct the issues very soon. Many players are experiencing issues as bad as characters going missing which means that all of their hard-earned money and experience is all lost and cannot be retrieved, others are seeing glitches within the game such as invisibility for certain players, and others are having issues connecting to Rockstar's cloud service.
To make up for this, Rockstar has been kind enough to give players, what they call, a Stimulus Package. You can read more from their official blog the Rockstar Newswire by clicking here.
According to the blog, players will receive $500,000 in the upcoming weeks. As Rockstar has said, there are a few things that players must remember.
You will not automatically receive this money the next time you log on. Rockstar is setting up dates for when they will release this money to the public. On the blog, Rockstar says that this will happen sometime after a fix is made for the bugs.
Players will not receive one large lump sum of $500,000 either. Instead, Rockstar has said that they will do two separate Stimuluses of $250,000 so that players don't screw too much with the local economy within the game.
There are some requirements as well. Of course, you will need to own a legitimate copy of Grand Theft Auto V (or a downloaded copy) and have played online within the month of October 2013.
So to anyone who doesn't have the game, I suggest you get a copy right now before this special offer goes away.
Rockstar says that the patch should be released sometime by the end of this week, that being the week of October 13, 2013.
There is still no official word on a PC version at this time from Rockstar reps. However, many have speculated, based on previous GTA releases, that a PC port will be arriving sometime in April or May 2014. There is no official word from Rockstar as to whether PC players will receive this Stimulus Package either. It's doubtful as this seems like something designed for players who have been experiencing issues. The PC version will be less likely to experience these same issues when it is released.
