Red Dead Redemption 2 is due in less than 24 hours – get yourself fully prepared for the biggest release of the year.
It’s pretty common for games of this size to have a Day One patch and Red Dead Redemption 2 is no different. Fixing a few last minute bugs and making some late adjustments, we recommend downloading and installing this update before you launch the game.
The patch is 3.30 GB on PS4 worldwide (3.02 GB for Japan) and 3.2 GB for Xbox One worldwide (2.9 GB for Japan).
“The Day-One Title Update includes a range of across-the-board improvements and bug fixes for optimal performance,” said Rockstar. “We strongly recommend making sure you have downloaded the Title Update before launching the game, to ensure the best possible gameplay experience.”
To double-check you’ve got the right updated version of Red Dead Redemption, hit the Settings menu and look for Build 1116.8 in the bottom left hand corner.
