GTA Online: New Title Update Available and More

Posted on October 5 2013, 3:17am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Support, Social Club, Games

A new GTAV title update to address issues in GTA Online is now available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This title update addresses a number of issues that GTA Online players have been experiencing in the initial days of launch this week, including:
 
  • Fix to address the issue where players were stuck launching a session before the Mall or Nothing race in the online tutorial.
  • Fix to address an issue where bank & cash were deleted incorrectly in some cases.
  • Fix to address incorrect amounts of cash being dropped when the player dies in Missions and Last Team Standing.
  • Fixes an issue where the Character Switch Wheel would disappear after a failed load.
  • Fixes an issue where attempting to enter GTA Online via the Character Switch Wheel caused a black screen.
  • Fixes an issue where temporary characters were overwriting main characters.
  • Fixes an issue where players were losing apartments and the money they spent on them.
  • Fixes an issue that caused Story Mode missions to be missed in some instances.
  • Removes the autosave that occurred when transitioning into GTA Online from within GTAV Story Mode to prevent the chance of Story Mode saves becoming corrupted.
  • Several tweaks to GTA Online including improving overall stability.
 
Also today, we’ve launched the suite of GTA Online features at the Rockstar Games Social Club website including GTA Online player stats, ability to browse, rate and bookmark Jobs to add to your in-game queue to play, Job Playlists and updated Crew pages – as well as the GTA Online Guide which is a growing collection of tips and tutorials we’ll be updating frequently. Stay tuned for more GTA Online Social Club features that we’ll be creating and launching regularly in the weeks and months ahead.


 
You can also check out the newly updated www.rockstargames.com/GTAOnline for an overview of everything from the types of dangerous yet profitable Jobs to pull off to competitive and structured game modes to play and much more. Keep in mind of course that as an ever-growing, persistent and dynamic experience, this is just the start for what you will be able to do in Grand Theft Auto Online long term.

      GTA Online wil be great if there will be hiests, own signature skill like Trevor's rampage to upgrade, own businesses to protect from other gangs, a chance to work with the main characters, and A ZOMBIE MOD.

            I think it would be great if in the next update for GTA V rockstar added the ability for the sandking to shoot black smoke from the exhaust pipes, also know as "rolling coal" everytime you accelerate while driving the sandking.

            I think you should be able to be a cop in GTA V online. You should make the lobbies bigger and have 10 cops or something in each lobbie and the players that choose to be a cop wear Cop outfits and have unlimited ammo and have any cop cars , helicopters , boats and go round capturing online players but only if they have done a crime. Then take them to prison or a police station and they have to pay to a bit of money for the crime they have commit

              once when your online u should be able to make your own base and pick your own skill that your good at and be able to work with the military and any other business or service I think that would be super awesome

                    I think having a wanted level like in need for speed would be a good idea so the more robberies and murders you committed caused your wanted level to go up, until eventually there was a widespread manhunt for you and when you eventually got caught you were sent to jail for a set period which would depend on the wanted level you had. Then after you spent your time doing the mundane punishment for your crimes you were let out back into society with a clean slate. Although, you should be kept in jail for at least 4 hours of gameplay upto 80 hours in the highest wanted level, which would be few and far between. You should make it so you can escape from jail and go on the run and get false identities and things like that so you can evade the police, but make it difficult. You could also have bounty hunting jobs for other players to capture the escaped convicts, and take them in alive for more money.
                    Inside the jail, make it as realistic as possible with drug rackets and killings and gangs and make players take on the role of the prison guards and decide if they are dodgy or legit, helping the justice system or the prisoners escape, or get word out on the people they want a bounty on. I think the possibilities are endless with this, just with the amount of ways they could break out and who helps them if anyone does of course.
                    Definitely should be thought about!
                    Thanks for reading if you made it this far.

                      @RayJFoster I think that would be a very good idea. I read it like three times and hope they do something like that along with the bank heist. It would make the bank heist all that more fun with the threat of going too jail.

                          This patch as caused the issues that you stated it would be fixing, of which I haven't had before now. I'm currently stuck in my apartment unable to leave with my online character, but its displaying the offline map view with the special ability bar. My character isn't moving but on the map he is, the character selection wheel isn't displaying and it will not let me join any other game.
                          What makes this more annoying that when I inevitably restart the xbox and it takes ages to read the disk properly, I woukd of returned it for a new one but I thought it was my console; but after trying it ina different console it had the same problem, and I have friends who had this problem too!
                          I got xbox live solely for gta online but with all the issues we are having its really tarnishing a fantastic game.

                            @NickNickSonic I have exactly the same problem. Can't even kill myself as the game then freezes on a black screen with the loading circle. Although I'm able to play the game solo and join jobs fine.

                              I was classed as a ''Bad Sport'' for destroying vehicles of people who were attacking me.. This is Gta , the game where you are supposed to f**k s**t up without consequences.. Destroying cars should not be a criteria for being a bad sport...
