GTA 5 isn’t just another game, it’s a world.  A world that is massive in size and scope.  Don’t believe me?  Jump in a helicopter and you’ll be floored with the detail as you hover above Los Santos, taking in the prison, water system, and the replica of downtown Los Angeles.  Or jump in a car and drive across the map traversing city streets, the highway or on wilderness roads that are littered with animals.  So it was only inevitable that GTA 5 would have bugs and issues, especially with their Online component dubbed Grand Theft Auto Online.

So, today Rockstar issued an update that is said to address many of the issues that have been plaguing gamers.  And to offset any ill will, they’ve promised to deliver two payments each in the size of $250,000 to those were stricken with such problems.

The update issued today is as follows:

  • 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
