Red Dead Redemption 2 update 1.04 went live earlier today, promising to bring new bugfixes to PS4 and Xbox One versions.
And now that the patch notes have been released by Rockstar Games, we know exactly what has been changed.
Split between both Red Dead Online and Red Dead Redemption 2 single-player mode, there’s plenty of good tweaks being made.
The single-player patch notes confirm that Rockstar has followed up on their promise of removing bothersome bugs.
These mostly include problems connected with the auto-save feature, as well as issues with weapons disappearing.
It’s quite a moderate list but will no doubt prove popular with gamers who have been affected by these problems.
RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 SINGLE-PLAYER PATCH NOTES
Fixed an issue where the player could become stuck at 90% when loading an autosave made immediately after the mission ‘Country Pursuits’ if it was the only open mission.
Fixed an issue where players could become stuck on loading screen when trying to restart game after completing the mission ‘County Pursuits’.
Fixed an issue where players could become stuck at 90% when loading a save in Chapter 2 if they had set up camp near Horseshoe Overlook after completing ‘The First Shall Be Last’.
Fixed an issue where players could become stuck at 90% when loading after loading an autosave or manual save.
Fixed an issue where players could lose access to all weapons and equipment in their weapon wheel after completing a mission replay in Guarma.
For those who are getting stuck into Red Dead Online, this latest update does not contain any extra content.
Most of the changes are focused on removing bugfixes, some more troublesome than others.
One bizarre glitch that saw injured horses being replaced by Scrawny Nags after leaving the Stables has been removed.
As mentioned above, today’s Red Dead Redemption 2 update has been primed to deal with issues with bugs.
The good news is that Rockstar Games are likely to add more content to Red Dead Online in the near future.
GTA 5 Online just saw a new update go live, and if Rockstar is going to keep to their alternating patching plan, that should mean something coming for RDR2 Online next.
