Rockstar has officially released update 1.01 for its highly popular Red Dead Redemption 2 game, which includes a patch for side character Molly disappearing from camp after a certain story mission. The update comes shortly after the beta release of the game's online-only mode, titled Red Dead Online, and aims to fix a lot of the game's small and big glitches alike.
Red Dead Redemption 2 released in October and has proven to be an extremely popular game for Rockstar and parent company Take-Two Interactive, shipping over 17 million copies since its release in October. Still, like any big gaming title today, Red Dead Redemption 2 was not without its technical problems and glitches in need of patching. Now, with Red Dead Online available for everyone who owns the game, Rockstar has finally released a new patch that addresses a lot of the game's biggest issues.
Released on November 29 and announced by Rockstar, Red Dead Redemption 2 received update 1.01. The biggest fixes from this update include a bug that would see companion Molly disappear from the camp after the mission "American Distillation," as well as a bug where multiple companions would disappear after players utilized the retry from checkpoint option during the "Polite Society, Valentine Style" mission. Alongside companion patches include bug fixes for various items, environment and story missions. Overall, there are dozens of various small and large bug fixes for the Rockstar title.
While some fans may have been concerned with the progress of updates for Red Dead Redemption 2 after there was no quick fix to a lot of the aforementioned companion glitches, it's clear that Rockstar was taking their time and fixing every little bug and glitch they could. Previous updates were much smaller in size and scope, making 1.01 the biggest for Red Dead Redemption 2 thus far. It should make things much easier for players who are still in the midst of the vast 60-hour single player campaign.
Regardless, it's definitely not going to be the last big update for the game, as Rockstar's Red Dead Online is still in its beta phase, and the company will more than likely look to address the problems and glitches with that mode before it goes into full release. This will more than likely include certain glitches that make earning money a little too easy, although Rockstar may want to offset this with a better in-game economy, which is arguably one of players' biggest complaints about Red Dead Online. Either way, with update 1.01, the single player portion of Red Dead Redemption 2 is now at its most complete and bug-free to date.
