Some players have reportedly complained that their vehicles have been disappearing in the recently launched Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) that achieved record pre-order and launch day sales.
The vanishing vehicle issue came up after a vehicle was customized and a mission completed. Players said that their vehicles and upgrades stored in the garage were disappearing.
Rockstar Games said in its support page that it had received reports of such, "problems with cars and garages, particularly after upgrading and then completing a mission, and are looking into this now. Unfortunately, we do not currently have a workaround to recover a car if it is missing."
The studio also informed players that vehicles that are saved in the garage of one safehouse will not be visible in the garage of another safehouse.
It further updated, "This issue may occur if you drive another character's personal vehicle. We are looking into a fix to prevent this from occurring in the future."
"In the meantime, please try to avoid parking a car in a garage, driving one already in a garage, or getting in a default vehicle, when playing as a character other than the one with your upgrades."
Meanwhile, reports are circulating on the possibility of GTA Online introducing microtransactions. A Reddit user, 1880 has discovered a file from GTA 5's store section menu with a mention of 'Cash Cards,' GameSpot reported.
This particular file which is in XML format mentions the DLC from GTA 5's Special Editions and showcases four "Cash Cards" ranging from $100,000 to $1,250,000.
"Cash is king in this town. Solve your money problems and help get what you want across Los Santos and Blaine County with the purchase of cash packs for Grand Theft Auto Online," reads a description of the cards.
"All purchased cash is automatically deposited into your character's bank account. Spend wisely, cash therapy is fleeting."
The Reddit user however also explained that these "Cash Cards" might not be an indication that microtransactions will be coming to the game since these could be there only for testing or as prizes of some Social Club sweepstakes.
GTA Online will be launching on Oct. 1 as a free update.
