It’s the same story day in, day out: there are some aspects of Grand Theft Auto V which just aren’t working too well, and a lot of them have to do with Grand Theft Auto Online, which launched last Tuesday. While Rockstar’s working on fixing the game’s online component from their end, the developer released a new patch today which should help some XP and money farming exploits.
According to a post on CVG, Rockstar’s patch 1.03 is live, and keeps players from repeating the same missions over and over, which some were using to unfairly farm money and XP, which, of course, kills the in-game economy pretty hard.
A post on Rockstar’s support page offers up this status report on the state of the patch:
“The latest title update for GTA Online [1.03] is live for PlayStation 3 and coming as soon as possible for Xbox 360. The patch notes will be available shortly.
We have received reports from some players who experienced losing characters, progress, items, and/or in-game cash. Please refer to this article for the latest information on this topic.”
And that, of course, was documented yesterday on our site right here. I’m sure that Rockstar will post the patch notes relatively soon, so we can know exactly what the new update fixes, and how close we are to an actually unbroken game. Until then, I will wait to finally boot up the online component.
Shit. It’s been, like, a couple weeks since I’ve played GTA V. What’s wrong with me? Why do I bother with human interaction and going outside and enjoying movies? I’M SUCH A FOOL. I should be done with this damn game already. It’s so good, even if the online bit is totally screwed up.
