Players will see faster matchmaking and auto-invites with the recent update.
Want to attempt the latest heists in Grand Theft Auto Online but having troubles with matchmaking? Rockstar’s recently released patch 1.09 (aka patch 1.23 for current gen consoles) has recently received notes and aside from the previously revealed graphical improvements, it makes matchmaking and auto-invites faster for heists.
The patch also adds a few more UI options including allowing players to join a heist as crew member at the Planning Board. Simply hit left on the D-pad when an active heist is available. Heist leaders can also opt for open or closed matchmaking. Similar to job invites, this lets players who join a heist also invite their friends. If “Client Invites” is off, then only the host can invite other players.
Other issues and bugs have also been addressed in the recent patch including the aforementioned vehicle deformation issues. Sadly, it seems the downgraded parallax occlusion on PS4 and Xbox One is still to be addressed. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
