New GTA Online update available
Rockstar has been working diligently to fix the issue with GTA Online, and a new update is now available...
The ongoing issues with GTA Online have made for a less than smooth launch of the highly anticipated multiplayer mode for GTA V, with all sorts of server issues, tutorial mission problems and more. Rockstar has been working around the clock to fix these glitches, and taking measures to ensure the game is as smooth as possible and fair for all players.
Already, Rockstar has suspended microtransactions until the issues are solved, and now it's released update 1.02, which is available on PSN right now. The Xbox 360 patch is still incoming at the time of writing.
In an update from Rockstar, the various known issues the patch should resolve were detailed, which you can find below, along with a link to the dedicated support article for the online woes. So, if you're still one of the many who can't enjoy GTA Online, and have a PS3 copy of the game, hop on and grab the update.
Known issues with GTA Online fixed in update 1.02:
For PlayStation 3 users, a PlayStation Network server issue was detected that was limiting the amount of possible concurrent users. This was preventing most players from accessing GTA Online altogether and as of this morning, that problem was resolved.
There is an issue that is preventing some players from getting through the first tutorial mission across both platforms. Many players have been able to get through this with repeated retries, and we are working on unblocking this for everyone as soon as possible.
This morning, we experienced some instability across the GTA Online services which is affecting even people who have progressed beyond the tutorial mission. We are identifying these issues now and are working to restore stability for users as soon as possible.
For the time being and until we have been able to get everybody access to GTA Online and things are running smoothly, we have disabled the option of purchasable GTA$ cash packs. Players can however keep on earning GTA$ by pulling off Jobs and other profitable gameplay activities rather than purchasing cash packs.
