GTA 5 PC's release on 14 April was sadly bogged by certain issues hampering the game installation on PC. Error messages greeted many players leaving them annoyed.

But Rockstar was quick enough to suggest workarounds for issues that allowed players to install and go ahead and play the popular game that had faced numerous delays before its eventual launch.

Nevertheless, as previously promised by the company it has rolled out its first patch titled Patch 1.01, which has already gone live on PC platforms.

Players of GTA 5 on PC will be happy to note that the new update has patched issues like the crashing of GTA 5 Launcher, drop in framerate, sudden changes in character's facial features when undergoing PC transfer, issues in Rockstar Editor, Windows usernames causing Launcher failure, garage replacement issue and prepares ground for iFruit support.
