Multiplayer Patch

#1 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

My TV is occupied currently, so I can't check, but Rockstar released a multiplayer patch a little while ago. It apparently fixes the invisible things glitches and the disconnecting.
 
So anybody who got the patch, can you confirm that they fixed these things?

@CL60: I just booted it up, and I didn't patch. I can't remember if it patched this morning, but I am mostly sure it didn't.
 
And just to be clear we are talking PS3 version?
 
Also I'm in Canada, so it might not have started patching up here yet.

The patch downloads in the background according to rockstar, and applies itself when you start the multiplayer. And it's both 360 and PS3.

Oh-ho! Sneaky hotpatching. And from the 40ish minutes I just put into the multiplayer, it seems fine so far. Although it froze up after I died, thus resulting in me turning off the game.

both 360 and ps3 versions are patched. just make sure you are signed into your account and online BEFORE you start your game and it should push the patch screens for both consoles.

@casualterror: 
sorry for double posting guys. but casual what your getting isnt a patchable issue. lots of people are getting this its simply because the servers are loaded with people as any game that has a large launch like this would be. it should be better in a few days when the initial blitz of the severs calm down.
