Red Dead Redemption 2 has a new update out. The patch, which brings the game up to Version 1.03, is six gigabytes heavy. Of course, the reason for this size is that it introduces to Red Dead Online Beta to the game. Depending on whether you’ve purchased the Ultimate Edition of the game, you might want to get to downloading the update ASAP.
A new update is now available for Red Dead Redemption 2. The update is one that you’ll absolutely want to download as soon as you possibly can. Why? Because this patch is the one that brings the Red Dead Online Beta to the game. The update, at least on the PlayStation 4, is six gigabytes big, so plan your hard drive space accordingly. It might take a little while, depending on your internet speed, so, again, start the download soon, so that you can dive into the Online Beta as soon as possible.
Of course, you won’t be able to access the Red Dead Online Beta today if you haven’t purchased the Ultimate Edition of the game. You’ll have to wait until later. If you’ve played the game on October 26th (according to their data), you’ll get access to the beta on Wednesday. If you’ve played between October 26th and October 29th (again, according to their data), you’ll get access on Thursday. Lastly, if you haven’t played before October 29th, you can start the Beta on Friday, November 30th. That’s just how the cookie crumbles; the more money you’ve spent on the game, the earlier you get access.
Oh, and the Red Dead Online Beta is not the only thing that the update brings. It also includes “a range of miscellaneous improvements and bug fixes for optimal performance.” The description really doesn’t reveal much when it comes to content, but let’s be honest, that’s not what you care about.
If you end up getting stuck at another point, you might want to check out some of the other guides we have. We've written about mysteries like the missing person Gavin, the Rhodes Gunsmith prisoner, the locked door at Valentine doctor. We also have instructional guides that show how to rob stores without getting bounty or where to sell jewelry and gold bars. If it's collectibles or key items you're after, we've found all the Penny Dreadful comic books, Chick's treasure map location, or that famous pipe for Dutch. Finally, if you don't care to explore the map yourself, you could take a look at our Watson's Cabin and Catfish Jackson's Homestead locations guides. In the latest Red Dead Online Moonshiners Update you'll have a chance to find Navy Revolver and Best Shack Locations.
