Xbox 360 Update Coming "As Soon As Possible"
Rockstar has issued a new Grand Theft Auto Online patch on PS3 today, and plans to do the same for Xbox 360 players later today. As you'd expect, it's designed to get players through the tutorial bottleneck, and fix plenty of issues.
Also, Xbox Live Silver members, remember that Xbox Live Gold is free for all this weekend. Once you've snagged the patch, you might want to make the most of this.
The update comes courtesy of Rockstar's continually-updated support post, which currently identifies the following fixes:
- For PlayStation 3 users, a PlayStation Network server issue was detected that was limiting the amount of possible concurrent users. This was preventing most players from accessing GTA Online altogether and as of this morning, that problem was resolved.
- There is an issue that is preventing some players from getting through the first tutorial mission across both platforms. Many players have been able to get through this with repeated retries, and we are working on unblocking this for everyone as soon as possible.
- This morning, we experienced some instability across the GTA Online services which is affecting even people who have progressed beyond the tutorial mission. We are identifying these issues now and are working to restore stability for users as soon as possible.
