When we found out about how the Grand Theft Auto Online Title Update was not only going to fix a number of problems within the Online world, but also throw tons of money at the problem, we were patiently waiting.
Here is the full list of the fixes the update will put in place. Probably the most significant is a reduction in the death penalty from $2,000 to $500. Here's the full list of fixes thanks to Rockstar:
- Fixes numerous issues that were causing vehicle loss and/or loss of vehicle mods
- Fixes an issue where the incorrect car is replaced when choosing to replace a car in a full garage
- Fixes an exploit allowing players to sell the same vehicle multiple times
- Fixes an issue that caused personal vehicles to be duplicated
- Fixes an issue where some players were unable to pay utility bills on an owned apartment or house
- Fixes an issue where players were not getting Crew invites in-game
- Fixes an issue where the starting point for the tutorial race was not appearing
- Fixes issues with joining Jobs from within a player-owned garage
- Fixes issues with players getting stuck while using playlists
- Fixes additional issues causing black screens, long load times, and players getting stuck in the sky cam
- Adds details in the UI to clarify that characters created while Rockstar cloud is unavailable are temporary (non-saved)
- Adds changes to the character creator to make better-looking default characters with the “random” option
- Players now only lose a maximum of 500 GTA$ upon death in Freemode
Players were understandbly irate when the launch of GTA Online didn't go as smooth as intended, but with these fixes in place, Grand Theft Auto Online may turn the corner and make us all the crime lords we're hoping to become.
