Rockstar has officially confirmed the existence of paid-for cash packs in Grand Theft Auto Online but wants to assure players that even with a cash packs that the game game has been balanced so that they are not necessary to progress. Though you’ll be able to acquire in-game content sooner. Any in-game money acquire can be earned through online play and ranking up, or by purchasing with real-life currency. But any total amount of money will not transfer over to the single player campaign.
A number of upcoming content additions that can be purchased in the future with in-game currency, such as a Content Creator, which was meant to be part initial release, will allow you to design your own death matches, races and a Capture the Flag mode. Other content will be Beach Bum Pack that contains “four new beach vehicles, 300+ items of leisure wear and two new weapons, and Heists – full-on cooperative missions that will require planning and teamwork to succeed.”
The paid-for cash packs will cost you between £1.99 and £13.49 where you’ll have four options of “GTA Online currency cards.” These prices aren’t set in stone and may go through some changes before the official release.
Eurogamer explains that even though GTA Online and GTA5 exist in the same virtual world, in-game pricing does some variations between them.
A car that costs $1 million in the game’s single-player mode can be bought for much less in Online – more like $150,000. Properties are also cheaper – the most expensive you can own is $400,000.
And you can only own a single property. When you trade houses you get a rebate on the place you’ve moved from, so you can re-use your in-game credit to some extent.
But while some things are cheaper, others are more expensive. You’ll pay more for weapon and car mods, and most are initially out of normal financial reach. Yet any potential access to these items can only be unlocked when your character ranks up.
GTA Online will allow up to 16 players to run wild within Los Santos and truly explore a living, breathing world where players can do jobs, missions, races, sports, and customization options. GTA Online will be released next week on October 1.
