Whether you’ve had a chance to play it or not, you’re probably well aware of the issues GTA V players have been having with online multiplayer. Bugs, crashes, and mysteriously disappearing save files have plagued Rockstar‘s latest title since day one.
The company has chiefly declared these issues an unfortunate side effect of GTA V‘s record-breaking influx of players at launch, and has yet to fully resolve the strain on its servers. In an attempt to offer reparations, it’s turning to a new tactic: giving players $500k of in-game money to get them back on their feet.
On its official website, Rockstar writes: “We will be dropping a cool half a million GTA$ in the GTA Online bank accounts of all players this month, starting as early as next week. 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.”
To be eligible for the deposit, players must have logged into GTA V Online at any time during the month of October. They will also need to download patch 1.04, which is expected to launch next week.
