Share And Comment

Rockstar has released the latest 1.04 update for GTA Online for both PS3 and Xbox 360. The primary purpose of this update is to set things up for Rockstar to implement the first part of their Stimulus Package which will see players receiving a total $500,000 GTA$, the first half of the payment is supposed to be in by the end of the week, so it should be dropping today or tomorrow if they stay true to their word.


This update does a lot more than just that though, it also addresses several other outstanding issues that players have been experiencing, one of the biggest being the ridiculously high $2000 death penalty, that has been reduced to a maximum of $500. Check out the full list of additional fixes in this update below.

  • 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
