Grand Theft Auto Online’s Stimulus Pack is Going Live

The Stimulus Package, which takes the form of an in-game $500,000 cash deposit, acts as an apology to fans who lost the progress of their online avatars due to early game stability issues.

$500,000 is enough to purchase some of the best cars and equipment in the game, hopefully allowing new and old players alike to quickly catch up with the current GTA Online kingpins.

Rockstar noted that it might take some time for the money to appear for every player: “We expect that it will take up to 2 full days for the Stimulus Package to be fully delivered to the entire player base from October 2013, so please be patient if you do not see it appearing in your in-game bank account just yet. We will update this post on Friday when we expect all the GTA$ Stimulus Package deposits to have been completed.”

Addressing the slightly-shaky launch of Grand Theft Auto Online and looking towards future updates, Rockstar said: “Thanks go out to everyone for their continued patience and understanding while we worked through these issues, and we can’t wait to bring more into the world of GTA Online. On that note, stay tuned for more details on the Beach Bum update soon along with upcoming Social Club event announcements and more here at the Newswire.”

Despite the issues, GTA Online has been hugely popular here at Ready Up, with Tony dedicating an entire podcast of discussion to the new game.
