Rockstar: “We expect patch 1.04 to be available next week” – GTA V Update Awarding Players $500,000


Rockstar Games has just released a statement announcing that they are set to release  a second  update in as many weeks, 1.04, (1.03 update just  recently released) scheduled for sometime next week and includes some monetary goodies for players.

With Title Update (1.03) just being released that included various fixes and already Rockstar  is announcing a follow up. It seems in the wake of the online  multiplayer technical issues, (players having trouble getting into matches etc) Rockstar decided to award a half a million in virtual cash ($500,000)  calling it the “Stimulus Package” for spending in the online portion of GTA V.

A quote for Rockstar Games:

“For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in these first days of GTA Online, we hope this GTA$ helps to facilitate a fresh start or makes your continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet.”

 Here are more details regarding Title Update 1.04:
  • 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$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.
  • Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.
  • We 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.

So there you have it!  Two title updates in two weeks! Hopefully this will make your online multiplayer visits more pleasurable with a huge wad of cash to spend to boot.
