Since its turbulent launch, Grand Theft Auto Online has suffered from a host of issues, most of which were remedied within the first 48 hours. In addition to the payment of $500,000 that Rockstar has promised players, they have also updated the game, and have patched numerous bugs that have plagued gamers worldwide. There are however, still some lingering issues; notably, “issues where some people’s vehicles or vehicle modifications were disappearing due to a cloud save failure.” Below is a complete list of the fixes:
- Fixes numerous issues that were causing vehicle loss and/or loss of vehicle mods
- Fixes an issue where the incorrect car is replaced when choosing to replace a car in a full garage
- Fixes an exploit allowing players to sell the same vehicle multiple times
- Fixes an issue that caused personal vehicles to be duplicated
- Fixes an issue where some players were unable to pay utility bills on an owned apartment or house
- Fixes an issue where players were not getting Crew invites in-game
- Fixes an issue where the starting point for the tutorial race was not appearing
- Fixes issues with joining Jobs from within a player-owned garage
- Fixes issues with players getting stuck while using playlists
- Fixes additional issues causing black screens, long load times, and players getting stuck in the sky cam
- Adds details in the UI to clarify that characters created while Rockstar cloud is unavailable are temporary (non-saved)
- Adds changes to the character creator to make better-looking default characters with the “random” option
- Players now only lose a maximum of 500 GTA$ upon death in Freemode
