Following a report outing the details of Grand Theft Auto Online’s monetisation model thanks to a bit of a leak on Rockstar’s official site, Eurogamer has obtained further evidence to support the reveal after speaking with people who currently have early access to the online portion of Grand Theft Auto V.
According to Eurogamer’s report, Rockstar will be asking for between £1.99 and £13.49 from players to purchase in-game currency packs, which will then allow you to buy virtual items and properties.
Here’s the (unofficial) breakdown of the packs with the virtual currency and then real-world currency price:
- $100,000 Red Shark Cash Card – £1.99
- $200,000 Tiger Shark Cash Card – £3.49
- $500,000 Bull Shark Cash Card – £6.99
- $1,250,000 Great White Shark Cash Card – £13.49
Eurogamer notes that items like cars in the online version of Grand Theft Auto V’s world will cost significantly less than the same item in the campaign, so buying property won’t necessarily cost you an arm and a leg. Also worth noting is that certain items will need to be unlocked as you progress your character, so you won’t be able to simply buy your way to success in GTA Online.
Hopefully we’ll be able to get an official confirmation on these details soon, because GTA Online launches on October 1st.
