Cant play Offline now either

Since the update and after trying multiple times and failing to play online, now I cant even play offline either. I cant switch characters, I hit down on the d-pad but nothing happens. I cant do missions because if I get close to them it makes me freeze and i cant drive my car, get out of it or do anything but change the radio station. Game is completely unplayable for me right now.

This is happening to me too. I can't access any of the characters other than Michael. The D pad pressed down doesn't work trying to switch it just zooms the map out. I can't access the only mission I have with Michael which is to buy the Tuxedo. When I try to go over the mission marker outside Ponsonby's it doesn't work.

The Update/Connecting Online has broken our savegames, I've just loaded an old savegame (78% on autosave to 7.7% on a manual save and now the missions are working again).

I had the same problem, but after I did something of which I don't know what it was (probably either die or finish some side mission) I can switch characters again. Relax a little :-)

I am also stuck with trevor right after the kidnapping of the mexican wife. Cant do anything because the only mission is in the city and trevor cant go to the city. Cant switch characters either.

I got the same problem.
I cannot load my last savegame. Unfortunately my only other savegame was after the update, too.
I can start a new game from the beginning and this works just fine. So the savegame must be damaged by the patch or something. At the moment i cannot play online and thanks to GTA Online i cannot play my savegame in offline story mode... It would be very kind if Rockstar would answer shortly that they are aware of this situation as many other players share this problem with me. Thanks

@tobyboy05: PS3 // @FSimond: yes, I didn't reload any old savegame or anything. Must say that I've already finished the story though, I'm in freeplay doing side missions, races, and misc stuff, so I can't speak to the topic of storyline missions.

I'm having the same issue. I'm stuck as Trevor, and I'm currently supposed to intercept a military convoy for a heist I'm working on, every time I get anywhere near the convoy the symbol disappears from the map and there are just a bunch of empty military trucks sitting on the road. I went to a Strangers and Freaks marker on the map and nothing will work there either. Can't switch characters... can't do anything but drive around basically! Super frustrated.

I can't play at all either. On 360, pristine disc that worked just fine last night 4-5 hours before online went live.

I done this now a few times: deleted the game, removed my saves, cleared cache, reinstalled the game and the update, and I'm still at "loading story mode" for HOURS until I turn it off in frustration.

I managed to get into the game once by hitting A when the game's first loading for online mode, make a character, then get told it can't connect due to server problems, and then it apparently dumps me into story mode, but it's all ...weird. No radio, hardly any other cars, cars themselves drive...differently somehow (hard to explain), and so on.

All of this seemed to start when I updated and decided to just go into story mode first; I didn't see the "press A for online" when it was loading up, and I was assuming I'd have to go online from the menu once I was already in the game anyway...

So I'm in story mode, and I go to change characters, but I choose the bottom character slot--which has no character in it--accidentally. The screen goes black and just sits there. No response to any button presses. I had to reboot, and it was all downhill from there after that, as previously described.

I'm confused why the offline mode was so affected by the online mode. I guess I expected the two to be a bit less intertwined.

Anyway, I could play just fine last night in story mode, and today--all day, and still tonight--I haven't been able to play at all, online or offline. I hate to think I'm going to lose all my offline progress. It wasn't THAT much (20%?) but it represented a lot of time to me.

Hoping for a fix. Also, saw this page:

http://support.rockstargames.com/hc/en-us/articles/200483683-Being-stuck-on-Loading-Story-Mode-load-screen-in-GTA-V

And nothing there seemed to work at all. Help! (and thanks)

Thats so true, I was on my second go of doing GTA5, about 48% and then I get the option for an update for GTA5 on my PS3 and then I can no longer progress in my story mode, tried reloading it, restarting it, nothing. So I figure that the patch, like many others of you have had the same problem! Im wondering if I start a new story is it going to be the same again? I cannot progress with the single story mode! I;ll check again later, but I hope its back to normal, otherwise thats really bad!

Unplugging my ethernet cable from my 360 allowed Story Mode to load normally. I didn't try loading any of my existing saves, but it let me play, create a new save... and seemed OK.

I know that's not a fix, because you're totally, totally offline... but if you really just want to play at ALL, then it might be SOMETHING to do for now while we wait.

I guess I got lucky on that part. I could do the mission and. Every thing else. But I did notice during the online I got sent down frombthe sky and all off a sudden there were like 300 cars maybe more crashing and ppl running down the street for there lives. It so looked like the screen in independence day when every one was running so I get out of that mess and only reason I way going that way is my 780.000.00 bookstore with mike was under attack and that was block's and blocks away from that mess. And I roll around the corner here is like. 30 gang members with big ass guns shooting up my place and never saw that gang by mikes house ever. Luckey I had that chain gun.killed them all.but I still played from 10am to this 4am. Only other problem was did freeks and geeks mission with mike at the sub doc for sub parts are I'm.75percent done all money was spending and collecting stayed big and bright in the top corner. I could switch back and forth between all three. I did see all the stocks in the one all droped big and.Only one working was pisswiesser and I for git had money on it from two days ago.and here I had only 600 shares at like four bucks on it. It gave me like 290thousand.I Cased out. And did notice all those cars you spend lots ofcash
On and disappear when you put in you main house garage this week.
