Many people are still struggling like heck to get in to a game of Grand Theft Auto Online. I’m one of them; I just can’t get past that first tutorial race. I hate having to do the exact same thing over and over in games, so I’m not even going to bother until it’s all sorted and settled. For those of you desperate to jump in to an online game and kick it in Los Santos, help is at hand.
Rockstar’s suggested a few ways for you to try and sort out your online woes. On their support site, they say the first thing you should do is delete the title update that enabled GTA Online, and download it afresh.
Here’s how to do it, via Venturebeat
- On PS3: Navigate to “Game Data Utility” from the game menu. Select “Grand Theft Auto V” (not ”Grand Theft Auto V Install”). Press Triangle and select “Delete.”
- On Xbox 360: Select “Settings” from the Home menu. Select “Storage” and then “Hard Drive.” Press Y and select “Delete System Cache.” This will delete the game update, but bear in mind it will also delete updates for other games.
If that doesn’t work for you, Rockstar’s suggested that you select “Swap Character” from the Online tab within the single-player pause menu, delete the created character that was unable to get into the tutorial, and then create a new character. Lastly, if you’re still unable to connect or get past the tutorial, they suggest “trying again.”
If you’re impatient, they might help you get in. If you’re like me though, you’ll just wait until it actually works…mostly because you’re still busy with the single player…because you just can’t find the time to game just as much as you wished you could.[Thanks to Admiral Kempff for the Tip]
