Before you wreak havoc on the graphically-enhanced streets of Los Santos in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One re-release of Grand Theft Auto 5, you'll need to download "some last tweaks and optimization fixes," according to Rockstar Games.

The publisher broke the news in a recent blog post, which states the launch-day update will become available on Monday, November 17 in preparation for the game's November 18 debut. Rockstar Games urges everyone to download and install the update before playing to "experience the game properly," but also notes that as long as your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One is connected to the Internet, the update will be applied automatically.

As for what exactly the update contains, that's a mystery. Beyond that line about tweaks and optimization fixes, the publisher offers no details on the patch's contents, nor any word on how large it might be. On the upside, this update, like all Grand Theft Auto 5 updates, will be available at no charge.
