Grand Theft Auto Online Microtransactions, Reputation System Detailed

Posted on Wednesday, September 25 @ 12:51:48 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Rockstar Games has revealed a handful of new details on Grand Theft Auto Online—the multiplayer component that will be coming to GTA V on October 1st.

According to a post on the studio's Newswire, GTA Online will include a microtransaction system for those that want to get rich quick.

You will have the option to purchase GTA$ through the in-game Store. 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 paywall and nothing that should disrupt the balance of the game. 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.

In addition, GTA Online will have a reputation system which monitors all of your accomplishments online and rewards you accordingly.

Reputation is earned from all your online exploits in everything you do in GTA Online – and will help you rank up, providing access to new features, weapons and criminal contacts. Spend cash you’ve gained on cars, clothes, guns, properties and much more. You can either quickly accumulate cash through profitable activities like knocking over armored cars, winning street races, doing stick-ups or a host of other cash-making endeavors.

Of course, the true promise of this ambitious online experience won't be realized to its full potential on day one, as Rockstar has so much more planned once the experience is made available. Expect GTA Online to evolve in the coming months. In fact, here's a look at some upcoming free content to look forward to:
  • The Content Creator: The Content Creator will launch with tools to tailor and publish your own Deathmatches & Races.
  • The Beach Bum Pack: Featuring 4 new amazing beach fun vehicles, over 300 new items of incredible down tempo leisure wear and 2 new but not remotely relaxing weapons. 
  • Capture the Flag: GTA Online’s take on the classic CTF mode including the ability to make your own using The Content Creator. 
  • Heists: This update will introduce full-on cooperative Heist missions that will require careful planning, teamwork and sharp execution – along with the Heist Planning Board for your apartment. 

What are you looking forwarding to doing most when GTA Online launches next month? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
