GTA V patch addresses bag of problems

GTA V patch addresses bag of problems

Character progression, and more.

Ever since GTA Online launched on October 1st, people have been having problems with it. Be it losing their progress or being stuck in infinite loading, the game is far from playable for lots of players. Rockstar, however, released a new patch that is up today.

“Please always remember to save your game before leaving GTA Online, otherwise you may lose any progress since your last save – this can be done by exiting back to Single Player through the pause menu.”

“Until downloading the title update above and in order to minimize the chances of any further data loss, if at any point you receive the message ‘Rockstar Cloud Servers are unavailable’, please do not either select the ‘Retry’ option or create a temporary Character to play GTA Online. Instead, you should exit to GTA 5 Story Mode and try entering GTA Online again through the menu in Story Mode.”

The update is there for PlayStation 3, and should be for Xbox 360 as well by now. Rockstar Newswire lists some fixes, while a full list isn’t released yet:

  • Fixes multiple issues causing character deletion or other loss of progress
  • Fixes issues causing infinite loading, infinite sky cams, and missing interface options between jobs
  • Fixes an issue causing the “replay” option to be locked out on certain jobs
  • Fixes an issue where a player would become stuck in the mod garage when respraying a Sanchez motor bike
  • Fixes an issue where the Player became stuck inside Los Santos Customs during Online tutorial flow.
  • Fixes an issue causing the loss of guns and ammo
  • Fixes issues causing GTA races ending early because of players spawning too far ahead
  • Fixes issues in Last Team Standing where sessions would not progress past the lobby
  • Fixes issues with network errors when joining Last Team Standing using Quick Job
  • Added clarifications around when a player is using a temporary character in GTA Online during Rockstar Cloud server outages
  • Adjusts the monetary penalty for being killed in a One on One match

Have you played it, or are you affected by any of these issues?
