GTA Online is giving away $2 million of in-game currency to each player who logs in during a set period of time.
From Thursday, January 30 to Wednesday, February 5, players simply need to log in to receive the first $1 million. Another $1 million will be handed out for all players logging in between Thursday, February 6 and Wednesday, February 12. A list of all weekly GTA Online updates can be found here, including information on new vehicles, discounts, and Diamond Casino rewards.

The announcement was made in a blog post on the Rockstar Games website celebrating December 2019 as the most popular month GTA Online has seen yet. More players logged on in December 2019 than ever before, topping daily, weekly and monthly records broken when the Diamond Casino & Resort opened in the game during summer 2019. 2019 was also the number one year for Grand Theft Auto V in YouTube video views, and an unnamed record was set for “engagement via likes and comments,” according to Rockstar Games citing Tubular Labs.
A similar promotion is currently in play for Red Dead Online as well. Players who log on to Red Dead Online will receive free weapons and hundreds of bullets of ammo for logging in the first week and a free license, bolas, and arrows for logging in the second week.
While PC users don’t have GTA V on Game Pass, they have this nice Vice City mod.
