There are a variety of opinions on Red Dead Redemption 2. The majority think that it is an outstanding game. There are some who go further and think it’s a masterpiece. Some people, including this writer, think it’s an incredible technical achievement but is a little dull. Others think that it is just a boring game. What you don’t tend to find are people who complain about the game being a mess or full of bugs. This speaks to the proficiency, prowess, and performance of the team at Rockstar. Just compare the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, or even Grand Theft Auto V, to that of the last few releases by Bethesda. Both Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 suffered with similar issues to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Gamers expect Bethesda games to be buggy. Rockstar Games don’t have that same assumption.
Despite launching in a solid state, Rockstar has continued to keep updating the game both with little fixes and new updates. Well, the latest patch for the game has arrived and it says a lot about the state of the game that it is such a small list. Seriously, here are the entire patch notes –
- General stability fixes and improvements
- Addressed an issue resulting in Posse members losing Moonshine bottles at the conclusion of Posse leader sell missions in Red Dead Online
Now, I’ll happily admit that there could be lots of things hidden in the category of “general stability fixes and improvements”. However, I very much doubt it and the fact that these are the patch notes are across all platforms (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia) just make it even more astounding. Credit has to go to Rockstar for crafting such a stable (because, you know, there are lots of horses) game.
