  • Increased bonuses on business-type features

One-off PC Update

This isn’t the first update of the week however, as Rockstar also dropped a surprise PC update.

It’s strongly suggested that this update is aimed at fixing some of the issues that have arisen over the last few weeks surrounding the Rockstar Launcher.

It’s a small update of only 78MB, so we know it won’t be revolutionary in what it’s aiming to address.

Head here to find out more about the new PC update.
