‘GTA V’ 1.04 patch goes live, first Stimulus Package arrives next week


GTA Online’s disastrous launch is slowly getting rectified by Rockstar, with the instances of disappearing characters and cars becoming slightly less numerous as Rockstar finds and stamps out the errors. The latest automatic title update, 1.04, is now out. 

This update rectifies the following issues:

  • 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


In addition, Rockstar has promised some compensatory in-game money to soften the pain of the game’s online woes. Each player that has been using the game will get a total of $500,000 in in-game money, with the first half to be deposited shortly. Rockstar posted on the comments board of the story:

Hey guys, in regards to questions about the first deposit of GTA$. We’re aiming to make the first deposit of $250,000 in all players accounts early next week once we’ve confirmed that any remaining game progress issues have been fixed for the community in this latest title update. Thanks for understanding and stay tuned to the Newswire for more details.
