Mo’ money, mo’ problems! Internet sleuths have discovered files indicating that Grand Theft Auto V’s online multiplayer feature will offer in-game cash for real-world money. As detailed in this Reddit discussion, while the in-game Store feature is currently disabled, the public files on Rockstar’s servers (accessible with a bit of work) show four “cash card” DLC items that can be purchased to add funds to your online character’s account. The cards offer $100,000, $200,000, $500,000, and $1,250,000.
“Cash is king in this town. Solve your money problems and help get what you want across Los Santos and Blaine County with the purchase of cash packs for Grand Theft Auto Online. All purchased cash is automatically deposited into your character’s bank account. Spend wisely, cash therapy is fleeting.”
The prices for the in-game cash is unknown at this time. The offer of in-game cash purchases would seem to suggest that the multiplayer component of Grand Theft Auto V will make acquiring and spending money a focus. Hey, those disappearing car mods don’t pay for themselves! Grand Theft Auto Online releases for free to all owners of Grand Theft Auto V on October 1st.
