GTA 5 Update: Patch 1.04 coming this week with more bug fixes

Publisher Rockstar is to rollout a new GTA 5 update this week, with patch 1.04 set to bring a raft of new bug fixes to address continuing issues with the game.

Although last month’s GTA 5 release date smashed all day one and early sales records, the much loved game has been troubled by a number of issues since launch, with the recently introduced GTA Online platform further compounding a number of bugs.

Following last week’s introduction of the third GTA 5 update, the publisher has confirmed that patch 1.04 will be rolled out in the coming seven days. Although confirming an imminent arrival, Rockstar has yet to unveil a precise GTA 5 update release date.

Similarly, although a full list of bugs that are to be addressed has yet to be released, Rockstar has stated that the next GTA 5 update will “fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss.”

Confirmation of the latest GTA 5 update comes after Rockstar revealed it would rollout a range of in-game monetary compensation packages for gamers affected by the continuing GTA Online problems.

“Given some of the recent technical issues during these first days of GTA Online, and now that things are starting to look much smoother (touch wood!), we are planning to provide a special stimulus package for all who have played or will play Grand Theft Auto Online this month,” the developer announced in a recent statement.

“We will be dropping a cool half a million GTA$ in the GTA Online bank accounts of all players this month, starting as early as next week.”

With the rewards set to appear in player’s in-game bank accounts soon, Rockstar has revealed that it will issue the payments in two $250,000 deposits, the first expected to drop next week and the second before the end of the month.

Rockstar get a grip, millions of us are sick of these problems with the online mode, great game and a great deal of frustration aswell. Theses bastards who have exploited the game with hacks make me phisically sick, cant you set an example with these scumbags and close or ban them from joining in what is turing out to be one of the greates GTA experiances ever made? Cmon its not fair. Fantastic opertunitys are to be had with us honest players. Carrots27.

“fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss.” You guys need to stop complaining about losing money, cars or ammo, there are many of us who don't even have them because we lost our CHARACTERS.

i feel you. while i'm working me ass off the gain some money. are some peeps only killing others for fun. but then still i would say ok if you enjoy it, go on!... but just like my first day in GTA online. was hell... i started in the midle of the town whit no gun whatsoever only some bucks in me account. so i turned passive mode on and went (atleast tried) to get to a ammo shop. first i got killed while in me car driving to the ammo shop. found out later passive only works on food... still didn't gave up and tried it again... secs later that guy hits me whit hes car hit hes brake... and again death... atleast now you start whit a gun. but then still how can you survive as you low lvl 1 whit only a hand gun vs someone in a car whit a uzi.

If you look, update 1.04 has dropped today, they have STOPPED paying out on missions. So on the one hand they are giving you money, on the other hand they have stopped one of the incomes. It's swings and roundabouts. Some of the missions give you 10k, 9K... etc.. not any more. I bet (though not checked) that the armoured vans will appear less often now too, and the delay between being able to sell cars will have increased. So are we really winning with this pay out from Rockstar??? you decide.

Yea so what, my friend and I both lost our characters, we accepted it and restarted, plus patch 1.03 fixed that so you should have no reason to complain, especially with the XP glitch so easily available.
