Rockstar Games have announced changes they are making to their legal agreements. The game maker also shared that an input will be required by players and a date when this will come into effect.
Late on Friday, Rockstar Support Tweeted the news and a link to a detailed support web page. They said in the tweet they will be consolidating the Terms of Service (ToS) and End User Licence Agreement (EULA). This is effectively merging them together to create a new terms of service.
The current ToS covers players’ use of Rockstar’s online services. Whereas the EULA is used for software and services distributed to the players in connection to how you use Rockstar’s various products.
When will this happen?
This new agreement will be able to be accepted when you sign into your Rockstar Games account from February 28th 2024.
Why is this happening?
Rockstar’s support page says they are doing this “to simplify and update the agreements that govern your legal relationship with Rockstar and your use of our products and services.” These two agreements are now one which is one less thing to sort out.
Many fans will be wondering if the terms will change much and Rockstar cover this. The company have offered some vague notes. The page says the new ToS “will also more clearly detail our expectations with regards to acceptable user generated content, communications, and behavior as well as our rights to moderate the same in order to maintain an experience founded upon safety, respect, and fair play.“
Some changes will also be made to “dispute resolution, governing law, and legal jurisdiction provisions and updated arbitration provision” which applies to those outside of the UK, EU, Switzerland, Australia, and New Zealand.
The new agreement will be viewable in full on January 29th 2024 at their Terms of Service page. The previous revision to the ToS was made back in July 2019.
