When Grand Theft Auto Online was launched last week, the service was so crowded that many (if not most) players couldn't actually play the game. Developer Rockstar issued a patch for the game within days, but players were still plagued by playability issues. Serious issues such as disappearing characters, network errors, and missing money or experience have been making the GTA Online seem like a mess for over a week.
Rockstar has now issued yet another update for the game, promising "technical fixes, tweaks, and enhancements" that should improve player experiences. Most importantly, Rockstar claims to have fixed the glitches causing characters to disappear. Other fixes include errors that prevented missions from completing, as well as issues that were causing the game to never load fully. The entire list of fixes from Rockstar's newswire:
The update has already been pushed out for PlayStation 3 owners, and should appear for the Xbox 360 sometime today.
In its blog post, Rockstar also issued an apology to players who had lost characters or progress due to the glitches. The developer also strongly suggests that players save their game before quitting by exiting to the single-player mode of Grand Theft Auto V.
