Rockstar Releases Red Dead Patch On PS3 And 360

A much anticipated patch for Red Dead Redemption was released by Rockstar Games this morning.  The patch addresses several multi-player issues as well as integration problems with the Rockstar Social Club.  Now the 100% progress tracker should update properly.  A “Hardcore Free Roam” playlist has also been added to the game but will not be immediately available.

An automatic title update (version 1.02) is now available for Red Dead Redemption on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. You will be prompted to download the title update as soon as you sign into PSN or Xbox LIVE. The main issues fixed by the title update are as follows:

  • Resolved various NAT incompatibility issues (Click here for tips on how to optimize your firewall settings)
  • Improved connectivity to multiplayer for users with slower connections
  • Improved reporting for Shootout and Gang Shootout games
  • Fixed instance where Mo Van Barr would not appear as a bounty
  • Fixed multiplayer titles not appearing for some users in the outfitter
  • Fixed instance where lawmen stopped responding even though the player was wanted
  • Fixed Issue with hogtied victims disappearing when ragdolled
  • Fixed crash in Free Mode when cooking dynamite and going into the water
  • Fixed audible glitch at the end of some cutscenes
  • Fixed Solomon’s Folly Action Area not ending after posse leader teleports in late
  • Corrected Social Club 100% Tracker so stats update properly
  • Various multiplayer issues addressed including load screen hang-ups and UI glitches
  • Eliminated miscellaneous game crashes

Additionally, this update includes support for a new playlist by popular demand, Hardcore Free Roam supporting only expert aim. This playlist will be released once this title update has time to propagate on both consoles. We will update this post with the word as soon as that playlist is confirmed as functional.

  • David

  • Glad to R* keeping on top of the issues.

  • Pieter

    I still have problems with connecting Free roam public…


    i took the update today and it froze on me at the end of the install and now everytime i go into play red dead its FROZEN before any game menu comes up !!!!!!!! what bullshit!

      What platform are you using? Were you having issues prior to the patch?

  • Chris Forbis (mensadad)

    I’ve been playing RDR daily since it was released (check my profile on Raptr) and I have not experienced any of the multi-player issues. Are those of you that are having issues on PS3?

    • Mike Bishop

      just got patch on PS3 and cannot meet for online private match with my brother. Had no problems up to this point.

  • Alistair

    this is unbelievable – I bought the game on day of release, and have been playing it on and off (only on single player) and yet even with this update the game still messes up during missions! this just isn’t acceptable! my game will stop playing music, then i access the pause menu and nothing comes up. exit out of the pause menu and things start disappearing and the game basically grinds to a halt!

  • Sean

    I own Red Dead Redemption on ps3 and I have no problems at all. It works just fine. Maybe it has something to do with your internet connection.

  • awesome

    i caled them about an hour ago, stating that i was having issues before the game came out and even after the patch. The foreign man told me that since the patch was just released today there is a bunch of people downloading and playing that it may not work properly. Also to change my DMZ on my router to enabled.
    haven’t had a hance to play, but damn i hope it gets fixed.

  • Fuchswagen

    x and o button mix up for Asian ps3s is still not fixed. Game is broken for our sp experience.

  • Kai

    They should change the way cooking a dynamite occurs, cause lighting it while aiming seems weird in a shooter, when you could just hold down the trigger to start the fuse.

  • james

    i hate patches. i had no bugs when playing it but as soon as i have to download patches i get heaps of bugs online and off. this happens to me in every game, its fine until i have to download a stupid patch. ROCKSTAR fix your online section.

  • jack

    I try to download patch but at like 4% it stops and I get signed out. Now I can’t even play online. This sucks.

  • Chris Forbis (mensadad)

    Earlier this year I was having strange problems with my Xbox but only in one game. It was freezing up, dropping connections online, etc.
    I went through a process to clear out the cache and ALL the game updates that had been downloaded. It solved all of my issues.

    Use at your own risk – mileage may vary.

  • Troy

    The game was fine until after the patch, where now I find empty rooms with areas half loaded.

    I use a PS3.

    However, my 360 friend told me there’s even more glitches on the Xbox for him, and after the patch he now has horrible connection issues where he disconnects constantly, and has the X/O button issue still.

    Seems there’s more graphical bugs on 360 and more connection issues on PS3. Maybe Rockstar should see if there’s a reason or if it’s just a weird coincidence.

  • stone315

    did the patch help anyone’s with ps3 posse connection i’ve connected 1 time but my posse was invisible (literally) to me.

  • Fireglyder

    even if i already downloaded the patch, i’m still having problems with being kicked because of “connection issues with other players”. i joined an rdr event and it just kept on fucking kicking me!!! its so fucking annoying!!! dammit rockstar!!! fix this shit!!!!!!! pls help

    • Chris Forbis (mensadad)

      Could you detail how your console is connected to the internet? This sounds like a internet connection issue. Include as much detail as possible. (Brand and model of router / cable modem / other equipment connected to your network /etc.)

    • wakka95mga

    I am really interested in how the systems are setup that are having problems. Please provide me as many details as possible.
