GTA Online Update 1.05 arriving “sometime early next week” with GTA$ Stimulus Pack

Rockstar Games will be releasing the GTA Online Update 1.05 “sometime early next week” with the GTA$ Stimulus Pack arriving in the days following.

An incoming GTA Online update will soon bring GTA 5 gamers the eagerly awaited GTA$ Stimulus Package, with the compensation arriving before the end of next week.

The new GTA Online update will also fix issues with player progress loss and Rockstar Games has thanked its fans for their patience with all the GTA 5 problems.

“Thank you to everyone for joining in GTA Online through this first months of its release, for all of your awesome Online Snapmatic pics and Crew videos that we’ve spotted, for your patience and understanding as we’ve been working through the initial teething issues of launching an online experience like this, and for your excellent feedback to the official email address.”

After the title update 1.05 issues the “few more tweaks and fixes” Rockstar requires, the developer will distribute the GTA$ cash to players “before the end of next week.”

The first GTA 5 DLC will also be arriving sometime in early November as a free download. Named the Beach Bum Pack, the DLC includes beach-themed vehicles and weaponry to use in GTA Online and the main game. The DLC will also introduce more customisation options for GTA Online characters, including more tattoos and hairstyles.

Rockstar will also introduce new Jobs to take part in when playing GTA Online.

Sometime in autumn, Rockstar will launch the first part of the GTA Online Content Creator that will enable gamers to create their own Deathmatch and Race Jobs.

“We’ll be keeping our eye open for exceptional ones that we’ll be stamping as ‘Rockstar Verfied’ and will be featuring them here at the Newswire and as part of forthcoming GTA Online Social Club Events.”

Like the Beach Bum Pack, the Content Creator will be a free download.

The first GTA Online Social Club Event weekends will begin in November at some point, offering special rewards and bonuses for gamers. These will include limited edition Event Crate Drops to in-game discounts and a special live-stream show hosted by Rockstar.

“Stay tuned as we hope to have more information with more details and specific timings on these content updates as well as on GTA Online Heists and the new GTA Online Capture the Flag mode to share with you next week. We will also have initial details on more additional content coming for both Story Mode and GTA Online in the next few weeks.”
