Rockstar has implemented a new title update for Grand Theft Auto Online
this morning. The patch, available on both Xbox 360 and PS3, cleans up a few lingering issues.
, the free multiplayer companion to GTA 5
, has unexpectedly been wiping players' progress since launch. While many of those bugs were addressed in a previous patch
, today's update tries to stop vehicles and vehicle mods from disappearing. Rockstar says that this particular problem was due to cloud saves failing.
The patch also tackles many other sticking points in the game. For example, players weren't able to pay the utility bills on their in-game homes, join crews, or start the tutorial race. Those problems, along with general stability issues like black screens or long load times, should be less of an issue once you download the update. Here are the full list of changes in today's patch:
- Fixes numerous issues that were causing vehicle loss and/or loss of vehicle mods
- Fixes an issue where the incorrect car is replaced when choosing to replace a car in a full garage
- Fixes an exploit allowing players to sell the same vehicle multiple times
- Fixes an issue that caused personal vehicles to be duplicated
- Fixes an issue where some players were unable to pay utility bills on an owned apartment or house
- Fixes an issue where players were not getting Crew invites in-game
- Fixes an issue where the starting point for the tutorial race was not appearing
- Fixes issues with joining Jobs from within a player-owned garage
- Fixes issues with players getting stuck while using playlists
- Fixes additional issues causing black screens, long load times, and players getting stuck in the sky cam
- Adds details in the UI to clarify that characters created while Rockstar cloud is unavailable are temporary (non-saved)
- Adds changes to the character creator to make better-looking default characters with the “random” option
- Players now only lose a maximum of 500 GTA$ upon death in Freemode
Rockstar announced last week that they're going to give players two deposits of free GTA$
as compensation for GTA Online
's launch problems
. GTA$ is the in-game currency that allows players to purchase cars, weapons, apartments and more within multiplayer. Rockstar says that the first deposit could arrive in your character's bank account in a matter of days.
"We're aiming to make the first deposit of $250,000 in all players accounts early next week once we've confirmed that any remaining game progress issues have been fixed for the community in this latest title update," the company said. "Thanks for understanding and stay tuned to the Newswire
for more details."
In the meantime, if you're still encountering issues with the game, you can contact Rockstar through their customer support twitter
