Rockstar is Working on GTA Online Problems


GTA V is now out for the PS4 and Xbox One, but if you’re one of the returning players who was eager to transfer your GTA Online progress and see how it plays on the new consoles, you might have run into some problems. For a lot of people, this hasn’t been an issue. Players who still logged into GTA Online from the PS3 or Xbox 360 on a regular basis were able to transfer their progress.

However, if you haven’t played GTA Online yet in 2014 and tried to transfer your progress, you might have received an error message saying, “No previous Grand theft Auto Online data is associated with your Social Club account.” If you tried to log in from the PS3 or Xbox 360, then, another error message refused you access.

Rockstar is on top of the issue. If you are a PS3 and PS4 user, you should be able to download a patch now or over the next few hours to enable character transfers. An Xbox 360 and Xbox One patch should be in place tomorrow. For more information and updates, visit Rockstar’s support page. We hope this situation is resolved for everyone soon.

Heists Included in First GTA Online Update After Launch


Following yesterday’s description of how Grand Theft Auto Online will run on the PS4 and Xbox One, Rockstar released some interesting statistics about GTA Online. To many players, however, more interesting than the game’s stats is a new promise about the ever-elusive heists.

“We know you’re all excited for more Updates to come and we’ve got some really exciting stuff in the works to continue adding to, expanding and evolving the world of Grand Theft Auto Online – including the highly anticipated launch of Online Heists which will be available for all four consoles as the first GTA Online Update to happen after the game launches on PS4 and Xbox One. We’ll have some details on that very soon as well.”

Yes, it is now confirmed that heists will be in the very first update GTA Online receives following the November 18 launch. Skepticism remains — some users are concerned this is no more a guarantee than when heists were first promised for the spring update, while others point to the unclear release date, as Rockstar promises to give details on the update “very soon.” Nevertheless, it looks like heists are on their way at last!

After that little reassurance, Rockstar went on to deliver GTA Online statistics from October 1, 2013 through October 31, 2014. In that time span, 33,384,423 people played GTA Online worldwide, across 224 countries. A handy infographic provides details on the number of jobs played and created, vehicles and weapons owned, the most popular items, and more.


This really shows just how popular GTA Online is, and it’s interesting to see how the data breaks down. Rockstar also added a comment to the post to explain where they get their country data from and provide a fun fact: there are 7 GTA Online players in the Vatican City, and one lone player in Antarctica.

On a separate note, the European PlayStation blog has provided an overview on how the PlayStation 4 Dualshock 4 controller will work with GTA V, as we briefly touched on before.

So, what do you think? Let us know if you believe heists are really coming soon or not, and if you’re one of those 7 people in the Vatican City or Antarctica’s sole player, give us a shout!

GTA Online on PS4/Xbox One


With the launch of Grand Theft Auto V for the PS4 and Xbox One next Tuesday, GTA Online will be available for the first time on new systems. Players of the original version will be able to transfer their characters and progression, and now Rockstar has released a post outlining some of the new GTA Online features.

The new GTA V first-person mode will be available in GTA Online as well, allowing you to experience multiplayer from a whole new perspective. It will also be much more chaotic than the current versions of GTA Online, because it supports up to 30 players.

Character customization has also been highlighted, because there are new options. You can either create a new character or change you existing GTA Online character to take advantage of these new features. On a different customization note, the Creator Tool will allow for twice as many props. Combined with 30-player gameplay, user-created Jobs will be crazier than ever.

A special Title Update will be available to PS4 and Xbox One users on Monday, to provide the final little changes needed to make the remastered GTA V the great experience it’s meant to be. Check out the official post for the full details about the PS4 and Xbox One GTA Online experience, along with information about how to get in touch with support if you run into problems.

But wait, there’s one more thing. Rockstar also mentioned in the same post that we should “get ready” for heists. Of course, most fans have been “ready” since spring, but this could be a sign that heists are imminent. The post also clarifies that heists will be available on all four consoles, to clear up any fears that only the new versions would have them. That wording has caused some fans to be concerned the PC version won’t have heists, but this probably isn’t the case. It’s more likely Rockstar means heists will release at once for all four consoles, and be available to the PC version from the start.

The PS4 and Xbox One versions of GTA V and GTA Online are almost here. Are you excited?

Rockstar Rep: Heists Are Almost Here


Well, it’s been 7 months since Rockstar first said GTA Online heists were on the way, and maybe this time they really are. According to Gamereactor, a Rockstar representative confirmed heists will come “shortly after the launch” of GTA V for the PS4 and Xbox One.

Some people thought the heists were delayed on purpose to coincide with the new-gen releases. As terrible as that sounds, maybe we should hope it’s true. After all, if the delay was deliberate, heists probably will come out soon. Right now, most fans are too jaded by Rockstar’s previous heist promises to give much credence to this claim.

November 18 is when GTA V releases for the PS4 and Xbox One, so perhaps GTA Online will see heists before the end of the month. We’ll keep you updated.

Double GTA$ & RP Deathmatch Weekend


Happy Halloween Weekend! Did you have a good holiday? Well, the Halloween fun isn’t over yet for Grand Theft Auto Online. All weekend long, you’ll be rewarded with double GTA$ and double RP for every Deathmatch you play.

As you enjoy this special weekend event, watch out for Crate Drops that contain Halloween treats like Fireworks Launchers, Miniguns, and vintage T-shirts. If you need a costume, GTA Online hats and masks are 50% off, as are orange weapon tints, parachute smoke trails, tire smoke trails, and ignition bombs.

Check out the full details and note that Rockstar has commented at the bottom that “exciting stuff” is on the way to GTA Online? Hmm… heists? They have to come eventually.

(Speaking of delays, we apologize for not getting this announcement out in time for the first day.)

Celebrate San Andreas With Double RP and More


It’s time for another special weekend event in GTA Online, as Rockstar continues to celebrate the anniversary of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Starting tomorrow, October 24, and extending through October 26, you’ll earn Double RP and Double GTA$ every time you play the San Andreas Throwback Jobs, which make up the Featured Playlist for this event.

These jobs will also be featured in a Twitch live stream tomorrow at 4 PM Eastern Time.

As you play, you’ll also have a chance to get classic radio station T-shirts, along with weapons and GTA$, by keeping a lookout for Crate Drops. All green clothing items will be 50% off, as will BMX bikes and bandanas. Lowered suspension vehicle mods will be 25% off.

Of course, you have a chance to win exclusive prizes, too! Take Snapmatic shots of your San Andreas celebrations and post them to the Social Club with the tag #GTASanAndreas. Five lucky winners will each receive a basketball, a bandana, a 10th Anniversary T-shirt, playing cards and poker chips, the Kubrick Box Set, and stickers, all with a San Andreas theme. Be sure to read the Official Rules before you enter.

Does this mean Rockstar might announce a San Andreas re-release? We can’t say for sure, but maybe we’ll learn something this weekend. In the meantime, enjoy the event! Check out the official announcement for the full details.

GTA Online Jobs: San Andreas


Next Sunday, October 26, marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Like last month’s Red Dead Redemption jobs, a series of fan-made San Andreas-themed jobs for GTA Online has been highlighted by Rockstar. These 10 games are sure to bring back some memories.

GTA V Heists Code Found – Launch Imminent?


Heists… where do we even begin!? The one year anniversary of Grand Theft Auto V’s launch recently passed and heists, a feature promised and touted by Rockstar as a major part of the game, are still missing from GTA Online.

We’ve have update upon update, and controversy after controversy in respect of GTA Online, and yet heists are still nowhere to be found… even with the launch of GTA 5 on the Xbox One and Playstation 4 coming next month in November, and the PC version following in January next year.

Are heists, finally, almost upon us though? User “funmw2″ from the GTAForums seems to think so and recently posted the code you can see below. Apparently it was added to the source code within GTA V as part of The Last Man Standing update that went live just a few days ago.

  • [0x02084EA9]
    GTA Online: Complete a Heist finale without anyone dying.
  • [0x02814D53]

  • [0xC8AA9219]
    You completed The Humane Labs Raid as Heist Leader or Crew.
  • [0xF59037BD]
    GTA Online: Complete The Humane Labs Raid as Heist Leader or Crew.

As you can see it appears to be a list of Achievements/Trophies that can be earned while carrying out heists. Given the code was literally only just included within the “live game”, does this mean that Rockstar Games are actually preparing to open up/launch heists publicly in GTA Online?

Let us know what you think… the crew here at GTA 5 Cheats think that heists will be launched some time this month, prior to the launch of the game on the Xbox One and PS4 next month in November. What do you think?

The Last Team Standing Update – Still No Heists


Public Service Announcement: First things first, there is no heists in this update. With that out of the way, let’s continue…

Increased firepower has arrived in GTA V and GTA Online with today’s release of the Last Team Standing Update. In addition to new jobs, weapons, and more, the update brought with it the Last Team Standing Creator Mode, so you can make your own Last Team Standing Jobs. You can add Rounds and Forced Weapons settings to Jobs you create, too. Rockstar outlines the whole thing for you here.

So, what new content does the Last Team Standing Update add to your game? Well…

  • 10 new Last Team Standing Jobs
  • Heavy Shotgun
  • Marksman Rifle
  • Additional Masks, Tops Pants, Bulletproof Helmets, and other outfits
  • Shitzu Hakuchou motorcycle
  • LCC Innovation motorcycle
  • Lampadati Furore GT

Reddit users like JustCallMeJoker have uploaded some great shots of the new vehicles.



For the full details, have a look at the official announcement.

Rockstar has also enhanced the way Job voting works, added lobby queues, and fixed dozens of other issues. Fans are especially pleased that you can now disable the Snapmatic Quick Launch being accessed by double-tapping up on the D-Pad. This and all the other changes are listed in the update notes.

Have a look and tell us what you think. A special Event Weekend is promised in the announcement, so stay tuned!

First-Person: What Are You Looking Forward To?

GTA V wallpaper 1

With the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of GTA V getting closer every day, it’s time to really start thinking about some of the new features. Although it hasn’t been officially announced, we have reason to believe there will be a first-person view mode. If true, that will really change the way you can look at GTA V’s world, especially with the graphical improvements of the remastered versions.

To no one’s surprise, some players are mainly interested in whether or not they’ll be able to enter sex scenes in first-person mode, or if the camera will revert to third-person on its own. Other players have different things in mind, such as one Reddit user who is excited about potential first-person submarine exploration.

Vehicles may benefit the most from the immersion of first-person, as being in a crashing helicopter, for example, will be a much different experience if you’re looking out from the cockpit than if you have an exterior view.

Right now, the official first-person mode for GTA V is still a rumor. The leak might have been faked, or it might have been an old idea that was cut. Assuming for the moment that it’s true, however, what are you most looking forward to seeing and doing in first person? Where do you most want to explore?
