The creator of Grand Theft Auto 5, Rockstar Games, announced Friday October 18, the latest patch for GTA Online. The update is now available for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platform.
The GTA 5 version 1.04 will address certain issues that cause player vehicles modifications to disappear due to problems with the cloud servers.
The automatic title update also comes with the following fixes as listed on Rockstar’s official blog:
- Fixes numerous issues that were causing vehicle loss and/or loss of vehicle mods

Rockstar also encouraged GTA V fans to drop by the game’s support website or contact them through the company’s support Twitter account in case they are still having technical problems. We earlier reported about the GTA V stimulus package to makeup for the hiccups experienced by gamers while playing online. So, installing the patch will also make players receive their share of the first half of the GTA$500K stimulus. According to Rockstar Newswire, the first payments will be delivered to all qualified player accounts within the coming week.
The company also announced the availability of GTA V on the Games on Demand marketplace for those using Xbox 360. The digital version of the game, which has been available on PlayStation Store, comes as a monstrous download of 16GB.
