GTA V 1.04 update live, doesn’t add money or Heists yet

If you are currently playing the PS3 version of GTA V, you may want to stop what you are doing and restart the game. Within the last hour, Rockstar has just gone live with their promised 1.04 update. For those asking though, it doesn’t bring the first payment of the stimulus package yet, or that of the GTA V Heists content that players are badly after as well.

What it should do though is fix up a lot of existing bugs that are still present in the game. By Rockstar’s words themselves, the main purpose of this patch is to give the game the functionality to receive the $500,000 stimulus package at a later date.

For now, we can confirm that the GTA V 1.04 update is live on PS3. Xbox 360 users may want to check their games too to see if the update has been pushed at the same time. There isn’t an official change log or bug fix from Rockstar yet, but we’ll add it below once details of the 1.04 title update has been fully disclosed.

For starters, install the update for yourselves and see if you have noticed any major changes in the game that you want to tell us about below. Rockstar also specifically mentions that 1.04 should fix up any issues that caused vehicles to disappear in the game – let us know if you are still seeing this.

Regarding the free $500,000, it looks like Rockstar may be planning to make this payment available via the Social Club, once everyone has installed the 1.04 patch. We’re also hearing that some players who already have the update are having issues connecting to friends in the game – due to incompatibility issues for those that have 1.04 and those that don’t.

With this in mind, you may want to start running the latest version as soon as possible to avoid this problem. Sadly, there’s no word on the incoming Heists DLC yet, but hopefully Rockstar are not too far off from a release as they know everyone wants to play it asap.

What have you noticed after installing the 1.04 patch? We’ll update this as necessary when more information comes.

Doing the vineyard survival on wave nine all my ppl but one died an once this happened it said failed. An that we abandoned the match. When that happened none of the people got any rewards. But in the same you lose all the money you half to spend on the ammo an armor. An with 1.04 still no money stimulus. An not using glitches its kind of hard to get money now BC u get half money an rp. Its bs. Bought a great game that turned out to be a load of sh*t

Nice that in their patch notes, they forgot to mention the RP and cash payouts for jobs got cut in half. Not only that, but I’m still getting randoms showing up in invite only games when they weren’t invited. Happens a lot when I’m playing invite, friend, or crew only games. Also, after successfully completing a mission in an invite/friend/crew only game, my invitee/friend/crewmate and I will select freemode, and one or both of us will be dumped into a public game. We also get random people showing up in the mission planning screen to go on the jobs, in… Read more »

For those praying R*, you are either glitched already or level 30+. For those of us who had issues we are now screwed since we can’t get the same XP or money awards. Thanks R*, once again the game is being balanced on the backs of the people who have tried to play by the rules! or were screwed by bad code and servers.

everyone complaining about the missions being nerfed, i dont think they are trying to make you buy microtransactions but instead they want you to earn your money through doin heists for when they become available, once the heists come out everyones not gunna complain about the nerfed missions anymore

I’m a UK player, this is my sixth attempt to play online after the update, and still cannot play it. Every time I join a lobby, I get kicked out, because “I’m not signed in to PSN”. Other problem I have is that after 7PM my time, I cannot connect to the cloud server. This been happening since the online came out. I think this update make things worse. Hope you are happy now Rock Star…

So the game went from completely unplayable to tedious and Boring . Wow Rockstar,you really suck !! I’m done ,on to COD ,stick your game up your arses !!

I think its to easy to make money in GTA, $25000 for base invaders and it takes like 5 minutes with two people. I’m glad they’re making it harder, it will make people appreciate the money you earn more, making the missions worth doing. I hate the fact that you end up playing the same missions over and over just because you know that its a high earner. The in game economy is screwed due to farming and glitcher’s has anyone thought that Rockstar are trying to stabilise this to improve things for the future? As for the in game… Read more »

They keep making the game worse with each update its already hard enough to make money now for the missions that use to give 9 and 10k they only give half this is becoming garbage very fast and then the player sometimes glitches during a mission and doesn’t want to get in the car at the worst time (while being shot at) and then to top it off everything is more expensive online

fluffyacorn

Well, all that update did was nerf the already nerfed missions. Everything 9,000+ has been cut in half. They are reeeeeally trying to make it difficult to make money in this game so we buy their money.

Base invaders income cut in half… Looks like cockstar is really pushing mucrotransactions. I thought this company was different, but they’re just like the rest. Golden pool’s next winner right here

Just did Los Santos Connection and Extradition with some friends on PS3. Los Santos Connection gave 2 of my friends $16000 and me $8000. Me being level 52 and the other 2 being 19 and 47. Extradition gave me and a level 21 friend only got $10000. Don;t understand how it decides who gets what. But whatever they did, if they are trying to push for the currency purchases this hard, the game will die quick.

Lots of nerfs to NPC jobs. I did Check Out Time (now $5,000 and 650 RP) and Out of Court Settlement ($4,500 don’t remember the RP, maybe 600) for Martin and both had their cash and RP values cut in half. They’re pushing hard to real money purchases.
