Released as part of GTA Online patch, Xbox 360 and PS3 update promises fixes for various issues in Story mode.

The new Grand Theft Auto V title update released today not only opens access to Grand Theft Auto Online, but also promises a fix for numerous Story mode issues.

Rockstar Games published a list of prominent fixes to the Rockstar Newswire today. Among other issues, the update promises to fix the vanishing vehicle bug.

  • Fix for interface issues when using Internet on the cell phone after completing the game, or during a mission replay
  • Fix for the Vanilla Unicorn occasionally becoming locked
  • Fix for issues where the character’s money could drop below zero and become stuck there
  • Fix for the Epsilon Program missions not progressing properly after delivering some cars
  • Fix for issue where the Atomic Blimp sometimes does not appear as a phone contact for Collector’s Edition owners
  • Fix for issues with saved vehicles going missing, or losing their upgrades
  • Fixes for several map escape and collision issues along with other various bug fixes

Grand Theft Auto V launched earlier this month, generating $800 million in 24 hours and $1 billion in three days.

Still can't get my head round the mandatory pvp race at the start of GTA Online. If they knew there would be problems at least make it accessible in solo mode but one bright spark at Rockstar thought it would be best to open it with a mandatory pvp race just to ensure it's fully blocked to play...

You sould blame EA. Everything is their fault (according to GS community)

Likewise but we all knew there'd be problems when this launched but I do agree with 6orange6 on the character creation it is pretty lame, I was expecting something a lot more from Rockstar for the online component.

been on it for an hour. First impressions;

Lag is horrendous during title sequence, it streams objects off the net and you are not getting texture pop ins, more like entire street pop ins.

Character creation has the most lame system I have ever seen in my life. You have to mess about with tiny pictures on screen of 4 grandparents, which generates your parents, then you. All the avatars look like each other, with mexican/black features dominating. Nothing wrong with those races, just more choice would be nice.

In game the streets sort of have life in them, but its about 20% of the people and cars in the single player game.

In short, 1billion + people trying to login at once. RockStar mentioned  that there would be problems on first day of launch. Most gamers are still idiots not to realize how things really work.

protagonist, well, now you can – albeit as a mute avatar as opposed to a
fully fleshed-out character."

Still think GTA Online will be amazing. Can't wait till this issue is resolved

What???? "an invitation-based anti-griefing system so players can show off their homes and vehicles without fear of having them stolen or destroyed."

Now you know how they are going to protect the noobs who waste their money buying in-game cash. This defeats the purpose of the game. GTA Online went from sounding like the best thing ever to a huge, steaming pile of shit. 

Good job Rockstar for ruining the experience. It is not only Pay to Win with fancy houses, cars, and overpowered guns that they never earned, but now you create a mode to protect these sissies. Well you won't get a dime from me.

The dumb thing they have done is in solo play they have made it so the first thing you have to do is compete with others,  they should have made it so you can play solo and not force you to have to connect with others from the word go just allowing you to do the solo things for the time being

I guess this is the future of gaming? Always online, in other words wait a few weeks after the "Launch date" to be able to play!

Among the issues that the developer is looking into is an error message saying cloud servers are unavailable, freezing on the first race with a message saying "waiting for other players", a "failed to host" message, problems with the first race marker not showing correctly, matchmaking time out errors and general issues tied to the Social Club.

 oh ya....cloud gaming....always online....perfect world...ya right. 

this is once again why i prefer disc games. more drama with online shit. LOL

Yea me too. I just spent an hour punching chicks at the beach for money because they always go down in one punch and the guys take several. Saves time. Misogyny = more cash in less time.

Yea but that's just making excuses for them. They knew how huge this was going to be based on pre-orders alone and they still weren't prepared. Even their iTunes app didn't work right and still has issues. It's disappointing coming from Rockstar and I'm a huge fan of theirs. I currently am also unable to log on due to time outs. I was hoping to play today but now I'm wondering if it's going to happen any time soon. It's not like all of those people are suddenly not going to want to play. So how long do we have to wait until enough people get mad and quit trying before we can actually log on? Who knows?

@MAGIC-KINECT It will be years before the cloud is perfected. It's good on paper but just not very practical today.

@Dasim64 "It's not like all of those people are suddenly not going to want to play."

Not at the same time they won't. Apart from launch day/week, the numbers are going to decrease 3-4 times, just like it happens with any MMO or other popular online game. 

Of course Rockstar were expecting these amount of people logging in at start. But the time and resources needed to setup all those new servers are just not worth it. They're going to take them down in a couple of days anyway, so what's the point.

All the gamers are already expecting the servers to be overloaded on launch. And for those living under rock Rockstar will issue a short apology thanking them for their support and saying how they didn't expect such a large amount of people to like their product. Maybe give away a free skin for your character for all the trouble.

@WantYouBad @Xx_DemonSoul_xX It sounds like there a ton of connection issues. Hopefully they will fix for you guys. What a crock! They had all this time to be ready and still isn't working.

@shadowhunter0

Yes which forces you to compete with others straight away and you can't so you can't play in solo play

@WantYouBad @Xx_DemonSoul_xX  Dude, its easy to guess thats what happened,saying Heists arent available on release date but fucking Currency cards are, How the fuck are Legit players going to make money while the rich fucktards who are ruining this industry will simply spend money on the game to unlock everything early.   

GTA 5 was my first and last rockstar game also fuck this industry its seriously turning to utter shit.
