GTA 5 Online Patch Released For Xbox 360, PS3
Rockstar Games has released a new patch for Grand Theft Auto V to fix the problems ailing its multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto Online. The patch went live for PS3 early Friday and was released for Xbox 360 overnight.
GTA Online allows up to 16-players to run amuck in Los Santos together and perform all manners of criminal activity. For example, they can perform heists together or challenge each other to races. Along the way, players earn money to spend on apartments, weapons and more. Players also have the option to spend real-world money to get this cash quicker.
That was what GTA Online was supposed to be in theory, anyway. The game simply wasn't working when it launched this week. Many players were unable to connect to the game. On the off-chance they logged onto the game servers, they'd get stuck in the tutorial. On the even more remote possibility that they got past the tutorial, their progress was abruptly wiped out from time to time.
To make matters worse, the title update to GTA 5 that unlocked GTA Online was causing issues with the single-player campaign. After trying to connect to GTAO and failing, some players found that the character swap wheel was missing in the single-player. Others found that their single-player saves were now corrupted.
The latest patch aims to fix all of these problems, though. Here's the full list of fixes from from Rockstar:
