GTA Online Micro Transactions, Updates, and More

Rockstar has confirmed that online micro transactions WILL be a part of Grand theft Auto Online which is set to launch next week. The good news for us gamers is that we are not required to spend any of our real money to obtain anything in the game. Guns, cars, clothes, and property can all be obtained by using the in game methods of making money. However, for those that want to get things a little quicker or a little easier, the option to purchase items with real money is available to us as well. “There is no in-game paywall and nothing that should disrupt the balance of the game. You don’t have to spend real money to attain the cars, guns, clothes, flash, and style of a high-roller in Los Santos, but can if you wish to get them a little quicker,” Rockstar Game said.
I really have to tip my proverbial hat to Rockstar for this because it would be easy for them to nickle and dime the shit out of us especially considering how much they spent making this game in the first place. Rockstar also gave the fans a small glimpse at what updates they have planned in the near future for GTA Online. Some of these updates include the Content Creator where players can create their own customized death matches and races, The Beach Bum Pack which features four new vehicles and 300 items of clothing, and two new weapons. Also, coming to GTA Online in future updates is a Capture the Flag mode and Heist missions where players can work together to perform a number of jobs. The best part is all of these updates will be free.

Rockstar Games is doing their best to make this online experience as seamless as possible though they have warned that the first few days GTA Online goes live it will probably be a bit glitchy and have some over crowded servers. Rockstar Games said it is “working around the clock” to buy and add more servers to support the pressure of millions of players logging into the game.
