Red Dead Redemption receives big title update


Red Dead Redemption did a lot of things really well, but it was a game that was full of glitches and bugs. With so many other well executed game elements though, it was easy to look past them and enjoy the game for it’s great narrative, characters, believable open world and the inexplicable appearance of zombies.

Rockstar is looking to correct at least some of those bugs by releasing a title update. The update is for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and is available to download for free right now.

The update affects all original Red Dead Redemption game modes and all of it’s DLC, including Undead Nightmare. Check out all of the updates below, straight from the Rockstar Games website.

Red Dead Redemption:
    •    The game no longer reboots when switching from MP to SP, or from regular SP to MP. Going to the main menu from any mode or leaving Undead Nightmare single player mode will still reboot (except Japan).
    •    Lasso will now retract properly when thrown while riding fast on a horse.
    •    Removed display message saying "This horse is now your trusty steed" when you hitch a horse that you already own.
    •    Re-enabled world-wide multiplayer compatibility with Japan.
    •    Fix for failing and retrying the mission You Shall Not Give False Testimony, Except for Profit where attempting to shoot the skull prevents John from using his gun until switching to an unarmed state and back.
    •    Fix for Land Grab multiplayer mode where occasionally the match will start with the timer at 500 and the game doesn’t end and no XP is awarded.
