Starting this month and lasting until the eventual release of Grand Theft Auto 5 and Online natively on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, Sony and Rockstar Games are offering players the chance to add some free cash to their in-game wallets, provided they are an active PlayStation Plus subscriber.
Members of the premium subscription service can now access a monthly bonus of GTA$ 1,000,000, completely for free - there is a kicker, though. This bonus isn't an automatic grant that you'll receive simply by being a subscriber, but requires some extra steps and needs to be manually claimed each month.
Basically, there is a new listing on the PlayStation Store that is a separate "purchase" of GTA$ 1,000,000, except it is exclusive to PlayStation Plus members and doesn't have a price. Here you need to hit the big download button as if this were some kind of actual DLC to then access the new funds in-game.
It isn't clear how long this bonus will be available, since we don't yet have a release date for the new ports of GTA 5, but chances are there will be several months when you can redeem it, meaning a couple of free millions before the big day rolls around.
We don't even have any credible leaks regarding the release date of the ports, so there isn't even a ballpark estimate in play - though the likeliest scenario paints the end of 2021 as the most likely season when we can expect the PlayStation 5 version of GTA 5 to launch. Hopefully by then the stock issue will be resolved, giving every fan a chance to get the new console.
While you're going to burn through a million quite fast in the current GTA Online economy, having a free stimulus like this kicked your way each month definitely makes catching up with new content easier. For everything else, we've got the best money guides around. Remember to download the bonus whenever it's available if you are a subscriber!
