GTA V will receive a day-one update that will be filled to the brim with various “tweaks and optimizations,” Rockstar Games has announced.
In a new post on Rockstar Newswire, the developer stated that the update is mandatory for a proper experience and which will be applied automatically once you’re connected to the web.
Patch notes however were not mentioned and will probably arrive close to the launch day. The developer is currently wrapping up launch preparations for GTA V.
Even the heightened success from last year’s release has not deterred this company from listening to its consumer base.
Rockstar noted that while it has tried fully to give players an impeccable launch day experience, technical online issues such as the ones that plagued GTA V last year could happen.
“We need your continued help, and, maybe, just a little patience if there are any teething problems around the launch on the new systems,” Rockstar said.
“We have, of course, tested the game extensively but there is no way our several hundred testers can be quite as comprehensive as millions of players! Please bear with us should any issues arise–we will be working hard to fix any problems that arise, and generally ensure this launch is as smooth as possible.”
Additionally the developer also shared some new GTA Online screenshots to show off the game’s new 30-player support on the PS4 and Xbox One, the new character creation screen, and first-person point of view.
GTA V releases for current-gen consoles on November 18. The PC version will release next year in January and will come with support for 4K resolutions.
