Looking For GTA V On Your PS4? The Day-One Patch Is 1.14GB Big, Pre-Load Now

Rockstar Games is gearing up to release Grand Theft Auto V to PlayStation 4 and XBox One systems tomorrow (November 18, 2014), both of which will benefit from immediate patches. The size of the Xbox One patch hasn't yet been confirmed, though if you're rocking a PS4 console, be prepared to download a 1.14GB update if you want the best experience.

The size of the patch became public knowledge after GTA V was made available to pre-load over the weekend. If you're planning to play the game tomorrow, pre-loading isn't a bad idea, especially if your Internet connection isn't all that fast to begin with.

In a blog post earlier this week, Rockstar Games described the patches for both platforms as containing "some last tweaks and optimization fixes for game day. In order to experience the game properly, please make sure you install this Update before playing." The developer also asked for patience as it works out inevitable bugs that creep into GTA V's online mode.

"Whether it’s letting us know what you like and what you don’t like about the new features, reporting any technical issues you may experience during the early days of GTA Online’s next generation launch, or any other suggestions for improvements and tweaks whatsoever – we need your continued help, and, maybe, just a little patience if there are any teething problems around the launch on the new systems," Rockstar Games said. "We have, of course, tested the game extensively but there is no way our several hundred testers can be quite as comprehensive as millions of players! Please bear with us should any issues arise - we will be working hard to fix any problems that arise, and generally ensure this launch is as smooth as possible."

Rockstar Games promised an enhanced experience on the PS4, Xbox One, and eventually the PC (GTA V releases to PC in January). In addition to better graphics, GTA V on these newer platforms will also boast new vehicles and weapons, new features, and a first-person mode.

On a related note, Sony revealed that it will be offering a pair of PS4 bundles on Black Friday, one of which will come the 500GB console plus GTA V and The Last of Us for $400.
