The rumours are true. Grand Theft Auto Online has micro-transactions, and they’ll cost between £1.99 and £13.49. This will buy you individual packs of in-game money.
Eurogamer has spoken to people with early access to Grand Theft Auto Online, and has the details. There will be 4 GTA Online currency cards, with the following UK prices:
– $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
With less than a week before the online modes go live, it seems unlikely that these details will change too severely.
The price of items will vary between the single-player game and Online. So a property that may cost several million in your own game will far cheaper in the Online mode. The most expensive property will set you back $400,000. Conversely, weapon and car mods will be more expensive online so that they’re out of reach when you first start playing.
So, buy spending your real world cash on in-game currency, a low-level player can get faster access to improved vehicles and weaponry.
We can expect full details about GTA Online to be confirmed by Rockstar very soon.
