GTA Online microtransactions: first details emerge

Prices and more information has been revealed about Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer microtransactions.

Eurogamer reports that Rockstar will be offering four GTA Online currency cards that will give users varying amounts of in-game wonga to splash on cars and properties.

The existence of these cash cards was first rumoured by a Reddit tip-off yesterday.

The cheapest option will be the £1.99 Red Shark Cash Card, which nets you $100,000. The £3.49 Tiger Shark Cash Card gives you $200,000, while the £6.99 Bull Shark Cash Card yields $500,000.

The most expensive is the Great White Shark Cash Card, which converts £13.49 into 1.25m Los Santos dollars.

Sources who have early access to the online multiplayer mode – due to launch via download on October 1st – also report that items that cost more in single-player are more affordable in GTA Online. A $1m car, for example, only costs $150,000.

Conversely, weapon and car mods will be more expensive in Online, but can be unlocked as your character levels up. So those who buy a couple of Great White Sharks won't instantly be able buy the best weapons.

It's also been revealed that you will only be able to own one property in multiplayer.
