  • Fixed an issue where players could become stuck on loading screen when trying to restart game after completing the mission ‘County Pursuits’
  • Fixed an issue where players could become stuck at 90% when loading a save in Chapter 2, if they had set up camp near Horseshoe Overlook after completing ‘The First Shall Be Last’
  • Fixed an issue where players could become stuck at 90% when loading after loading an autosave or manual save
  • Fixed an issue where players could lose access to all weapons and equipment in their weapon wheel after completing a mission replay in Guarma

Online

  • General stability improvements
  • Fixed the issue where players removing an injured horse from the stables without healing it would result in the Scrawny Nag appearing when whistling for their horse
  • Fixed an issue where players could not exit the house in the Mission ‘Love and Honor’
  • Fixed an issue where players would be unable to load beyond 90 percent in the Red Dead Online beta unless they entered Story mode first
  • Fixed an issue where players could become stuck at a black screen after a Posse leader quit the lobby in the mission ‘Love and Honor’
  • Fixed an issue where players could crash to the Xbox Home screen when resuming from a suspended state after connecting to Xbox Live services
  • Fixed an issue where players could be kicked from Rockstar game services with error 0x99395004 after completing part 2 of the mission ‘Honor Among Horse Thieves’

In other words, the patch doesn’t do much beyond fixing a few random issues with the Red Dead Redemption 2 campaign and online modes. For example, those playing Red Dead Online have had trouble starting Stranger Missions, while lag and server disconnects remain a constant problem. Update 1.04 may not totally solve everything in those areas, but there are likely some worthwhile improvements worth testing out.

Interestingly enough, one issue that has yet to be fixed is the ongoing HDR blur effect that takes place across PS4, PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. While HDR is typically leveraged to enhance shadow detail and color depth on compatible displays, most players have found that the image quality is best with the feature turned off. That’s still the case after installing update 1.04.

This update arrives just a few days after the development team at Rockstar Games announced major changes to the controversial in-game economy of Red Dead Online. Since then, players have received free in-game gold alongside increased reward payouts for completing missions. With those tweaks adjusted on the server side, this title update cleans things up within the actual game files.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available on PS4 and Xbox One. Update 1.04 is live on both platforms.
