GTA V Update 1.05 Finally Brings Stimulus Package

GTA V update 1.05 and stimulus package

Then next time you try to play your copy of GTA V (while connected to the internet) you will be prompted to download the latest free update 1.05. This update aims to finally fix problems with missing cars, cash, and other progress. This update also means that Rockstar is ready to give you your already postponed stimulus package you have all been waiting so long for.

Those that have been playing GTA V are likely aware of the detail and amount of work put into the game. With so much in the game and so much going on it is to be expected that gamers would have issues, especially with GTA Online. Some glitches and bugs in GTA V are random and not very destructive but others have of course have caused players to lose progress.

Those that have been waiting patiently are likely irritated with the constant push backs of the stimulus package, which comes as a gift from Rockstar for $500,000 of in-game money when playing GTA Online. The Stimulus package was anticipated weeks ago and has been pushed back multiple times because people playing GTA Online were losing their all sorts of things that shouldn’t have been lost. Rockstar wanted to ensure that gamers that received their stimulus package wouldn’t lose it because of technical issues.

This new update is said to fix three big problems. Problem one comes from issues with the cloud outage and progress being lost. Problem two comes from players losing their cash balances due to network malfunctions. Problem three comes from players losing online vehicles when exiting the game. Supposedly this new update takes direct aim at fixing all three of these issues which will greatly improve GTA Online.

With the problems of losing goodies having hopefully been dealt with, Rockstar finally begins to roll out the red carpet. Rockstar says that the stimulus package will arrive for all in a few days time. They also urge players to be patient because the payout will be taking place over the length of a full day, if your friend gets it and you don’t, just wait it out, you’ll get your GTA$. To find your money simply check your bank balance in GTA Online after being connected.

With the update 1.05 being live it is likely that the wait will finally be over and those playing GTA Online will finally be able to lavish themselves in money if they haven’t cheated the game or earned enough to do so already. Rockstar thanks the gamers by saying, “a big thank you to GTA Online players worldwide for your continued patience and understanding.” Rockstar is committed to fixing issues with the game and creating the best experience. If you have problems Rockstar highly encourages you to send them an email at because the feedback from players is what is pushing the game to new heights.

Will update 1.05 be the last piece necessary for fixing GTA Online? Rockstar seems to think so but they are still always working towards making GTA V and GTA Online even better. With the stimulus package on the horizon another push back would be exactly what the gamers as well as Rockstar hope to avoid.

    You don’t get 500k on 2 seperate chatacter bank accounts.. your characters all share the same bank account / money. If you spend money from Character 1 it also deducts from Character 2

    why was this game allowed to be sold before the online part was available ?
    surely this should of been reported to the advertising standards authority. misleading and false advertising. maybe if we all sued them, we would be celebrating instead of them lol

    I got my money but I had around 50K before the update. After the update I just had exactly 500K. Not sure if i should be angry or happy…

    Since the update latest update (1.05). I can no longer go online on gta as it says the servers are down and to try again later. Its said this for a couple of days now since the update so I phoned rockstar (I live in England) and they asked for my email address so they could send instructions on how to “fix” the problem. I was less than impressed to find the instructions was rather to get on xbox live itself describing trouble shooting, nat settings ect. I sent than a reply stating that there was nothing wrong with xbox live just this pile of crap of a game. I said since its release its been barely playable and that I will not be buying ANY game again from rockstar. I have put the game on ebay because its not playable and second, it is only a matter of time before this game is worth 20 bucks due to all the problems. SELL THE GAME NOW TO GET AT LEAST MOST YOUR MONEY BACK! This game is utter shambles and quite frankly I feel scammed. I would like to see the game go bust but they’ve already made profit which is most likely why they could not care less I mean c’mon they’re already making extras which you have to pay for! Are you serious Rockstar??!! Your game doesn’t even work! #SELLNOW
