GTA V’s stimulus package delayed, free DLC on its way 1

More bug fixing means no money for players hoping to take advantage of Grand Theft Auto V’s stimulus package this weekend.

Rockstar announced today the first half of the deposit has been delayed until next week due to a need for more repairs to the online mode.

“We of course want to ensure that game progress loss issues are sufficiently sorted before distributing the GTA$ to everyone,” Rockstar said. “We have a few more tweaks and fixes to make in a new title update that will hit sometime next week and then we will distribute the cash.”

Rockstar also announced today the Beach Bum Pack, which is the first downloadable content for GTA Online. The DLC comes out in November and contains new beach-themed vehicles and weaponry, both of which can be used in GTA Online and Story Mode. The Beach Bum Pack will also include more customization options for GTA Online characters like tattoos and hairstyles, combined with new opportunities for employment across Los Santos and Blaine County. Oh, and it’ll be free.

Rockstar also said they’re working on delivering the first part of the GTA Online Content Creator sometime this fall. Players will be able to craft, publish, rate, and play custom Deathmatch and Race jobs.
