Red Dead Redemption 2 Day One Patch Confirmed by Rockstar | Gaming News
As if it needed to be said, Red Dead Redemption 2 is easily one of the most highly anticipated video games of fall 2018, and it won’t be much longer before players will be able to dive into the upcoming open world western release. Now, in order to prepare fans for the title’s launch, Rockstar Games has officially confirmed that RDR2 will have a Day One patch so as to make sure that the game’s stability is as top notch as possible.
Rockstar Games stated that the Day One patch for Red Dead Redemption 2 has been carefully crafted in order “to ensure the best possible gameplay experience”, and the developer recommends that fans have it downloaded before playing. That said, though, the studio also acknowledges that due to RDR2‘s rather large size and scope, the update likely won’t catch every issue at launch, so there’s a good chance players could encounter unforeseen bugs.
In addition to Red Dead Redemption‘s Day One patch, Rockstar also briefly mentioned the game’s official companion app, which ought to be available for both iOS and Android users once the title has finally hits store shelves. However, the developer has yet to offer any specifics regarding the RDR2 companion app, but if it’s designed similarly to other existing companion apps, players should expect to be able to use it for such things as customizing characters, tweaking in-game features, exploring lore, and more.
Players who want to be as fully prepared as possible for Red Dead Redemption 2‘s release and Day One patch this Friday would do well to have the title pre-ordered so as to start the pre-loading process, as the game itself has some hefty download sizes for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. And with the countdown to launch getting closer by the day, it will be interesting to see just how significant of an impact RDR2‘s Day One patch as on gameplay on the title’s first day of availability.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to release on October 26, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
