Check over the latest bug fixes and performance tweaks offered in the Red Dead Redemption 2 update version 1.04 patch notes on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


Part of the modern game development equation involves an ongoing process of tweaking old features and crushing new bugs. Development studios like Rockstar Games make it a full-time effort to keep their games alive and well, and that's certainly true for the team's latest release Red Dead Redemption 2. RDR2 players may have already noticed their system downloading the latest update, and we've got the full list of Red Dead Redemption 2 update version 1.04 patch notes featured below.

Red Dead Redemption 2 December 2018 update 1.04 patch notes

The Red Dead Redemption 2 1.04 update itself looks to weigh in at around 1.4GB on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so players shouldn't have to wait too long for the download to complete before they can jump back into the game. Here's the full list of the Red Dead Redemption 2 1.04 patch notes as provided via Newsweek

  • Added fixes for crashing issues.
  • Added fixes for stuttering/lag issues.
  • Added fixes for framerate drop and freezing issues.
  • Added performance and stability improvements.
  • Gameplay improvements added.
  • Added other minor fixes and changes.

Judging by the patch notes, it looks like the 1.04 update is mainly concerned with general stability. Stuttering, lag, and crashing issues that had been bothering players have all been addressed, and the usual type of generic "gameplay improvements" and "performance and stability improvements" have also been included. No specific bug or crash issues seem to have been addressed in the patch notes, but RDR2 fans should hopefully at least notice their game running more smoothly — or, at the very least, no longer notice that it's not running smoothly.

After the recent release of Red Dead Online, plenty of would-be Western heroes are enjoying all of the latest that Rockstar's release has on offer.
