A couple of days ago Rockstar Games dropped the 1.04 patch for Grand Theft Auto V addressing some GTA Online issues including high payouts for plot-based missions that were being exploited (played over and over again in rapid succession). This was seen to some serious critical response from a small niche of gamers while the rest of us have continued enjoying the MMO-ish experience presented by this third person / open-world action game. One thing that most gamers will agree is a good thing though is that Rockstar has also added the ability for them to make the first $250,000 deposit in banks of all GTA Online players as the first half of their $500K Stimulus Package.
Rockstar has announced that players should expect this initial $250,000 payment to be directly deposited into their bank accounts some time this week. The exact date and time will be revealed right here on RealGamerNewz.com in our GTA V Articles Section. As previously announced by Rockstar, players won’t have to do anything to receive this money and instead will just log in to find that the money has arrived. As long as everything goes according to plan the second deposit will be made approximately 2 weeks after the first one.
Another good thing the patch did was limit the amount of money lost to just $500 when you’re walking around in Free Roam. In addition to the $500K Stimulus Package Rockstar will also release the following free content over the coming weeks:
“Four free updates are planned for GTA Online including the Beach Bum Pack which adds a couple of vehicles, two new weapons, and clothes, the Content Creator Mode which allows players to make their own Deathmatches, Races, and more, a Capture the Flag Mode, and of course the long-awaited Online Heists Missions which are set to be the icing on the cake for GTA Online and very well may determine the game’s longevity over time.”
