GTA V 15th December update - How to play

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


As most of you are probably aware on 15th December 2020 a new GTA update will be released -



RAGE Developers will need time to update the client in order for it to be compatible with this new update.


Therefore you need to follow the below instructions to continue playing OwlV when the new GTA update is released!


Step 1: Head over to your GTAV Game Directory.  (Below are the most common file paths, unless you have specifically chosen to download the game onto a different drive, your files should be on one of the paths below!)


Steam: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto V

Epic Games: C:\Program Files\Epic Games\GTAV

Rockstar Launcher: C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto V


Step 2: Copy the following files from the directory:




Create a new folder called ‘update’ in the folder you are using for the backup, then just copy the update.rpf into that backup folder.

Your backup folder should then look like the following in the gif: https://gyazo.com/09b679f9b9cec7acfdd361752a55e793


What next?

On 15th December let your GTAV update go through as normal. Once it has finally completed, copy the files from your backup folder into your game directory, hitting replace files when prompted. (The files are GTAVLauncher.exe GTA5.exe and the update folder).


How do I go back to playing GTA with the update?

If you wish to check out the GTA update before the RAGE client has been updated, simply re verify your game files to revert the changes! Then when you want to jump back onto the server just follow the steps written under ‘What next?’.
