GTA V PC Has a Day-One Mandatory Update, Requires Social Club Account

After years of wait, Grand Theft Auto V on PC is finally close to a release. The game is expected in four days time on April 14. Players are eagerly waiting and many have pre-ordered the game to secure a copy.

Those who pre-ordered via Steam or Rockstar Warehouse can now pre-load the game. Keep in mind that you will need to have at least 65GB of free space on your HDD. Install size of the game is reported to be over 60GB. On top of that, a user reported that GTA V PC comes with a day-one mandatory patch.

Thankfully, the patch is only 50MB so it won’t strain your internet connection like the base game.

We don’t know anything about the patch but considering its size, it most probably includes minor fixes, tweaks and balancing. It’s unlikely Rockstar will reveal more about this minor update. Also, you will require a Social Club account to access the game.

Speaking of Rockstar, as I said, players can pre-load the game from Steam or Rockstar Warehouse. Unfortunately, some users who are downloading from Rockstar servers are having  speed issues. In some cases, speeds are going as low as 14Kb/s so it could take days before GTA V is downloaded.

Rockstar hasn’t yet made a comment on this but we’ll let you know as soon as they do.

Lastly, GTA V players on PS4 and Xbox One reported graphical issues after an earlier update. You’ll be happy to know that Rockstar has fixed the problem by releasing a new patch for PS4 and Xbox One versions of GTA V.

  • Fixes graphical issues on PS4 and Xbox One introduced after Title Update 1.08.
  • Corrects an issue where some players’ character appearances would change periodically
  • Fixes an animation issue where another player aiming on your screen would not play the correct animation
