UPDATE: Rockstar has revealed more about its Red Dead Redemption 2 update plans for 2019.
Red Dead Redemption 2 fans can expect brand new anti-griefing measures, as well as new modes and content updates.
“We have been poring through incoming community input and suggestions and are working on updates for early 2019 to address many popular bits of feedback including some new anti-griefing measures in the works and other updates to improve gameplay balance,” reads a Rockstar post.
“We are also working on lots of new features, modes and additional Red Dead Online gameplay content updates that we are very excited to share more about in the new year.”
ORIGINAL: Red Dead Redemption 2 Online has been given another new update on PS4 and Xbox One.
Red Dead 2 update 1.05 must be downloaded if you want to continue playing the game online.
Fortunately it shouldn’t take too long to download the update, which weighs in at 830MB on PS4 and 1.3GB on Xbox One.
Rockstar has also released patch notes for the new update, although there’s not much to go on.
According to the 1.05 patch notes, the update makes “general improvements to fix game stability, save data and to address exploits”.
There’s no mention of any specific bug fixes, and some fans have even complained of new issues cropping up since installing the patch.
One fans tweets: “Rockstar Games your new update for Red Dead had made my free roam glitchier than ever. Thanks @RockstarGames, I know you guys are working hard & that this is only the beta.”
Another posted the following: “Rockstar Games hay rockstar for some reason I can’t launch red dead? I just installed an update for it and ever since then it just won’t open? What should I do? [sic]”
“Can’t play Red dead redemption 2 due to stupid update screwing stuff up!! Thanks alot @RockstarGames.”
With Red Dead 2 Online in beta, expect more updates to be released in the coming days and weeks.
The news comes as fans speculate about potential single-player DLC in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Without wishing to enter into spoiler territory, the voice of a character from the original Red Dead Redemption appears in the sequel’s epilogue (via Gamingbolt).
It’s been speculated that Rockstar could be planning to release some sort of Red Dead Redemption remaster.
Either that, or a new single-player expansion featuring a character from the first game.
With the original map also found within the game files, it’s possible that Rockstar has something big planned for Red Dead Redemption 2.
