Latest Red Dead Online Update Targets Player-Reported Issues
Rockstar continues to make improvements to Red Dead Online’s functionality in order to make it the social experience that fans of the western game have been craving. While a previous update targeted the title’s poor economy, this most recent one remains focused on bug issues.
The most recent update doesn’t bring with it any gameplay changes, instead it focuses fixing bugs and stability alterations. For example, some of the missions players could mosey on through were bugged, rendering them unable to be completed properly and therefore wouldn’t produce the proper rewards .
Title Update 1.04: Today we are rolling out some new fixes to the Red Dead Online Beta to improve stability and address some persistent bugs that have been causing players to be kicked from sessions.
