Unsurprisingly, Rockstar and Valve are rolling in money after GTA V’s release on Steam, but it’s what everyone expected. It’s the same fantastic game, only much better and on the premier platform. They may as well start printing their own money. That said, and in spite of a few delays to polish and improve the game, GTA V released with a number of pretty serious issues. Patch 1.01 is here to the rescue.

Patch 1.01, according to a changelog released on Rockstar Games’ support page, fixes a number of key performance issues that plagued the game:

  • Fixed an issue where the GTAV Launcher would use an abnormally high percentage of CPU and sometimes crash.
  • Fixed an issue where frame rate would drop when left-clicking the mouse while driving.

Beyond that, the patch amended a number of issues and bugs, as well as making the odd improvement here or there:

  • Added a grid to the Golf mini-game to show the topology of the green while putting.
  • Fixed an issue where a character’s eyebrows or other facial features could change erroneously when transferred to PC.
  • Fixed an issue where a some players were asked to transfer their GTA Online character while a transfer was already in progress.
  • YouTube uploads via the Rockstar Editor will now correctly resume if Internet connection is lost during the upload and later restored.
  • Fixed a rare issue where the game could crash while using the Rockstar Editor.
  • Projects containing deleted clips will now load properly in the Rockstar Editor and warn the player of the missing clips.
  • Fixed an issue where birds were not recorded correctly in Rockstar Editor clips.
  • Corrected an issue where certain characters in Windows usernames would cause the Launcher to fail to load or other undesired game behavior. For details, see this page.
  • Fixed an issue where players with one garage would not be able to replace an existing vehicle if the garage was full and the new vehicle was purchased from an in-game website.
  • Additional fixes to prepare for iFruit support.
  • Crew Tire Smoke can no longer be purchased if you are not in a Crew.

Thanks to a report by VG247 and the unabashed curiosity of the modding community, modders have gotten into GTA V’s files and found references to all sorts of delectable details.

GTA Forums user GooD-NTS has published a number of screenshots pertaining to what they’ve discovered.

Horses? We doubt it has anything to do with Red Dead Redemption, so try not to get too excited.


We predict many a horse will be run over. Same may even attempt plane travel.

Ever since Undead Nightmare proved that Rockstar knows their way around zombie DLC, we’ve been keenly anticipating some sort of zombie infestation in GTA. It looks like GTA Online will be struck in the future.

GTA V - GTA Online

ZOMBIES! That is all.

There are a few other interesting discoveries, all of which can be seen on VG247’s post. We’re excited, even if zombies are about as generic as DLC gets.

Because there’s no such thing as too much GTA V:

GTA V on maximum settings on PC looks gorgeous
