Grand Theft Auto Online to Have Optional Microtransactions

by Prima Games Staff

With Grand Theft Auto Online five days away, anticipation is at an all-time high. We already listed our most wanted activities, and provided commentary on a recent video.

Yesterday, Rockstar Games clarified how Microtransactions work. If you prefer, you can spend a few dollars that you can turn around and buy more premium items, including cars, weapons and clothes.

On the company’s official blog page, Rockstar stated that if you’re the “completely instant gratification type, you can choose to buy denominations of GTA$.”

“You will have the option to purchase GTA$ through the in-game Store,” Rockstar revealed. Now before we go crying about pay-to-win, Rockstar promises, “The game and its economy have been designed and balanced for the vast majority of players who will not buy extra cash.”

“There is no in-game pay wall and nothing that should disrupt the balance of the game,” they explained. “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. The economy is balanced differently from the single player economy, and cash earned in one cannot be taken over to the other. Most players will earn cash much faster Online than in Story Mode.”

The game will launch on October 1st for Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, as a freebie to those who purchased Grand Theft Auto 5
