Grand Theft Auto Online Update and $500K Stimmulus Package Coming Soon

Grand Theft Auto 5 will likely go down in history as one of the best games ever created. I got it midnight launch day and was disappointed that the online functionality was not ready at launch. So when Grand Theft Auto Online launched I was super excited! That is until I actually tried to use it. Anyone on Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 will tell you that GTA Online had and is having a very rocky start. Things have stabalized a bit but it can still be buggy. Many people have lost their created characters and game progress, some even mutlitple times. Rockstar has been working hard to fix these issues and get GTA Online stable and the patch to fix this could be coming as soon as this week.

Also coming this month is the Beach Bum Pack DLC containing new beach-themed vehicles and weaponry that can be used in GTA Online and Story Mode. The Beach Bum Pack will also include more customization options for GTA Online characters, including tattoos and hairstyles. New Jobs will also be added across Los Santos and Blaine County.

Rockstar is still working hard to release GTA Online Content Creator sometime this fall, which will allow players to create, publish, rate, and play custom Deathmatch and Race jobs. Rockstar will designate certain player created content as "Rockstar Verified" and will feature it on the Rockstar Newswire as well as part of upcoming GTA Online Social Club events (weekend events where players can earn special rewards and bonuses). The Beach Bum Pack and Content Creator will be free.

Finally, Rockstar has said there will be a $500,000 (GTA$'s of course lol) stimulus package deposited into the accounts of all players affected, presumably those who played or tried to play during October, in two $250K installments. These deposits will take place once GTA Online has been patched and stabalized and all game progress is successfully being saved. I have already been riding around looking at new houses waiting for my check. How will you spend your stimmulus money? Houses, cars, boats, clothes, weapons? Maybe invest it in the stock market? How many of you will be making it rain and paying some young digital girls tuition? Let us know below in the comments.

Update (11-7-13): Looks like the bonus cash should be rolling out to accounts over the next few days starting now!
