GAMES COMPANY Rockstar has released a fix for what we assume are long running problems with the online aspects of Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5).
We have lost count of the number of times that Rockstar has issued updates for its couple of weeks old game, but this one, which applies to both Sony Playstation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 consoles, looks comprehensive.
It certainly promises to fix a load of issues, and anyone who is still suffering GTA Online gaming problems would be well advised to apply it.
"The latest automatic title update for GTA Online is now available for both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. As promised, this update addresses the remaining issues where some people's vehicles or vehicle modifications were disappearing due to a cloud save failure," said Rockstar.
Some people might still be having problems, and if you are one of them Rockstar still wants to hear from you.
"Of course, if you're still experiencing any other technical problems, please visit our support website and subscribe to the GTA Online Launch Status article," it added.
For now, a range of problems should be fixed. This includes what has become a perennial issue with lost cars and lost car upgrades. Basically it fixes either specific issues or multiple issues, with everything from long load times to job setups getting a polish.
Rockstar is well aware of the problems and has already lined up a sweetener for people that either want to play it and can't or people that have and have not been pleased by what they saw.
Because of a blocky gaming experience Rockstar has promised to give all players $500,000 in virtual cash. Anyone who accessed GTA Online during October should expect two cash deposits of $250,000. µ
