It seems so far, online issues are starting to smooth out for millions of gamers. The developers over at Rockstar want to verify all crimps are ironed out before rolling updates and stimulus packages for every buyer. One exciting new update arriving is the Beach Bum Pack update for early November. The pack will thrill gamers who will have an expanded array of weapons and vehicles. Gamers will be able to use the features for the GTA V online play or Story Mode.
Details of the Beach Bum Pack
The value of this update will be shared with online gamers and those who prefer offline play. What items will be included in the Beach Bum Pack? Read on to find out:
- The update will be free which is always a winner.
- New races will be introduced and with these new races;
- New vehicles aimed at beach racing will be introduced.
- A brand new selection of tattoos will be available for gamers to sport a new beachy attitude.
- A new selection of clothes and hairstyles will be uploaded as well for optimal selection.
Gamers had a hint the pack would be released but offline gamers had no clue and are thrilled at the prospect of being included. Earlier last month, Rockstar faced a backlash from Android/Windows users who were severely delayed from the iFruit app. The app was formulated and accessible only on iOS devices. It seems the Beach Bum Pack releasing in November will be sharing the GTA V love.
What’s Up with that Promised Stimulus?
Rockstar is well aware gamers are po’d about the online issues. Sure, the gaming giant made some big promises and did not quite deliver once GTA V went live. The company does deserve some props for remaining communicative with gamers and promising the stimulus. Once gamers started reporting they were losing GTA$, Rockstar held off on sending the stimulus to avoid gamers losing it in a glitch.
The first payment was estimated to arrive a week or so ago and that did not happen. Rockstar updated their site (remember, gamers can subscribe to updates, this gamer did!) advising the stimulus is still in progress. Rockstar wants to verify that all online problems are ironed out prior to releasing the two installments, totaling $500,000 in GTA credit per affected gamer. Gamers who played online in October will be the people compensated with the stimulus. That kind of money can go a long way in the newest update. The below video discusses the Beach Bum pack.
Being part of a few Facebook groups sounding off about that problems also revealed something else. Gamers love their GTA V and are willing to stick by Rockstar through thick and thin. From upsets, disappointments, issues and revelations – gamers pride themselves on being able to face it all. Rockstar acknowledges that and the company continues to keep a line of communication open between their gamers and the updates.
Speaking to a member of a new crew, he showed his love for the Rockstar brand and stated he overcame a lot of disappointment to start enjoying the game.
We gotta band together! No joke, we got enough people out there already slamming this game. Pimping out their theories on why it’s bad for me and my friends. It’s a cool game, I play it cause I enjoy it. I also have no drive to go shoot up places, if you crazy a game isn’t going to make you crazy. I told my boys online let’s simmer down the hate towards RS and keep rolling. Rockstar gets much love, I’m in my mid-30’s and after a long day at work, this is my time to relax. I know these issues will be fixed in no time.
There you go, gamers. A fellow gamer who has identified the issues and overcame the frustration to enjoy what he can until Rockstar irons out all problems. With the Beach Bum Pack update arriving in November with the stimulus, it seems Rockstar will be make amending in several ways. In addition, Rockstar will be releasing the Online Content Creator and Social Club Event weekends. Look forward to a renewed love in GTA V gaming next week. Looking forward to the update?
