If you've been patiently waiting for the Grand Theft Auto Online Title Update (and even if you haven't), you'll be happy to know that Rockstar has pushed it live. You can grab your patch for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 right now.

There are a number of fixes included in the update. One of the most significant is a reduction in the death penalty from $2,000 to $500. Here's the full list:

  • Fixes numerous issues that were causing vehicle loss and/or loss of vehicle mods
  • Fixes an issue where the incorrect car is replaced when choosing to replace a car in a full garage
  • Fixes an exploit allowing players to sell the same vehicle multiple times
  • Fixes an issue that caused personal vehicles to be duplicated
  • Fixes an issue where some players were unable to pay utility bills on an owned apartment or house
  • Fixes an issue where players were not getting Crew invites in-game
  • Fixes an issue where the starting point for the tutorial race was not appearing
  • Fixes issues with joining Jobs from within a player-owned garage
  • Fixes issues with players getting stuck while using playlists
  • Fixes additional issues causing black screens, long load times, and players getting stuck in the sky cam
  • Adds details in the UI to clarify that characters created while Rockstar cloud is unavailable are temporary (non-saved)
  • Adds changes to the character creator to make better-looking default characters with the “random” option
  • Players now only lose a maximum of 500 GTA$ upon death in Freemode

We should be seeing the first of the "stimulus package" deposits today, too.

Our Take
Hopefully this will clear up the remaining issues that players are having with GTA Online. Just remember to check your bank account later to get your first $250,000. Don't spend it all in one place.
