PC Patch For Grand Theft Auto V Hones In On Rockstar Editor Issues


Those experiencing technical problems with Grand Theft Auto V, fear not, for Rockstar has debuted a new patch that will correct a number of issues within the recently-released port. Chief among those fixes is in relation to Windows Media Player, with some users being hit with downtime if they didn’t have the client. All should be right now, however, meaning you can continue wreaking havoc across GTA Online without ever getting stuck between matches.

Taking to Rockstar Newswire, the studio detailed all of the inbound tweaks, with the in-game Rockstar Editor – a video editing feature that made its bow alongside the PC release on April 14 – also being the target of these new-fangled fixes.
