The second major title update for Grand Theft Auto Online was released today on PlayStation 3, aiming to address lost game progress issues and technical bugs, among other things. Rockstar Games expects the patch to be available on Xbox 360 by tomorrow, October 10, "at the latest."

"This title update will resolve the cause of players losing their gameplay progress except for some specific instances where players purchase a vehicle and the save does not occur due to a cloud save failure," Rockstar Games said on its website. "A fix for that particular issue is being worked on and we will provide an update as soon as we know when this will be resolved."

A full list of issues that the title update aims to address is below.

  • Fixes multiple issues causing character deletion or other loss of progress

  • Fixes issues causing infinite loading, infinite sky cams, and missing interface options between jobs

  • Fixes an issue causing the "replay" option to be locked out on certain jobs

  • Fixes an issue where a player would become stuck in the mod garage when respraying a Sanchez motor bike

  • Fixes an issue where the Player became stuck inside Los Santos Customs during Online tutorial flow.

  • Fixes an issue causing the loss of guns and ammo

  • Fixes issues causing GTA races ending early because of players spawning too far ahead

  • Fixes issues in Last Team Standing where sessions would not progress past the lobby

  • Fixes issues with network errors when joining Last Team Standing using Quick Job

  • Added clarifications around when a player is using a temporary character in GTA Online during Rockstar Cloud server outages

  • Adjusts the monetary penalty for being killed in a One on One match

"We apologize for the problems some players have been experiencing with lost characters or game progress due to this issue," Rockstar said. "Please stay tuned for updates as we continue to investigate this."

In the meantime, Rockstar said players should remember to save their game before leaving GTA Online, or else they run the risk of losing progress made since their last save. This can be done by exiting to the single-player menu.

"Until downloading the title update above and in order to minimize the chances of any further data loss, if at any point you receive the message 'Rockstar Cloud Servers are unavailable,' please do not either select the 'Retry' option or create a temporary Character to play GTA Online," Rockstar said. "Instead, you should exit to GTAV Story Mode and try entering GTA Online again through the menu in Story Mode."

GTA Online's first major title update was released last week.
