GTA Online March 16 update download size

The download size for this update depends on which platform you play the game on. For Xbox and PlayStation, the patch will be between 700MB and 1GB in total.

For PC, it will only be a download size of 400MB, so hopefully it shouldn’t take you too long to update the game.

What’s Included? Patch notes

Although this update didn’t include any new content for the game, it’s certainly improved the overall user experience for players. Here’s exactly what’s been added:

  • General network connectivity improvements (PS4/Xbox/PC)
  • Improvements to loading times on PC

Believe it or not, the loading times fix was actually developed by a GTA player who was rewarded $10,000 from Rockstar for their help.
