Rockstar Releases Fifth Grand Theft Auto V Patch; Addresses Ongoing Save Issues


Rockstar has confirmed that the fifth title update for Grand Theft Auto V, which is designed to address the save issues in the game’s online component, is available to download through the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 from today. The latest patch was announced through the studio’s website, which also teased that the delayed stimulus package will arrive within the next few days.

Here’s three of the primary fixes that update 1.05 addresses:

– Built in measures to prevent users from losing their progress when there is a cloud outage
– Built in a number of measures to protect players’ cash balances even if there are network problems
– Fixed an issue where on rare occasions during network problems the player could lose their Online vehicle or mods after exiting GTA Online

From cloud synchronisation to wayward vehicles, Rockstar has assured that the new update will iron out much of the in-game problems that players have been experiencing since Grand Theft Auto V released back in September. What’s more, it seems likely that the studio will launch the microtransaction system in GTA Online once these residual kinks have been corrected.

In terms of the much anticipated stimulus package, though, Rockstar stated that it will implement the compensation funds over a period of twenty four hours. Therefore, don’t be alarmed if your online partners in crime get their hands on the cash before you do. Additionally, the supplementary Beach Bum content pack will be released later this month free of charge, which will add over 300 items, four new vehicles and job creation tools into Rockstar’s online sandbox.

Given the tumultuous launch of the online component, the studio has set up a support thread that allows players to report any further technical issues that they unearth during their playtime.
