For those curious about where their in-game deposit of $250,000 went, Rockstar has offered up a few new updates.
Rockstar originally announced earlier in the month that due to problems with GTA V: Online they would be depositing $500,000 (in two $250,000 chunks) into online player accounts to make up for the issues. The first was supposed to arrive a week after the initial announcement. Well, that has since passed. Rockstar hasn’t forgotten about it though. They announced that they weren’t going to deposit the money into character bank accounts until all bugs within the system were worked out.
This information is tied to the reveal that a patch meant to quell any issues in the server would anchor the first of the two deposits. Rockstar has announced today that at the earliest the first deposit would arrive next week. So players waiting for that influx of in-game cash will need to wait a little longer.
Rockstar also announced that the game’s first DLC would be released in November for free. Titled “The Beach-Bum Pack,” the new DLC will add updates and content. Players will now have more options in terms of customizing their online characters and upgrading weapons. Furthermore, the pack offers a slew of new beach themed vehicles and weapons. The new weapons and vehicles will also be featured in the story mode as well.
No word about the second installment of in-game cash, but we’ll see if Rockstar follows through and resolves all the problems by next week.
