Prove your status as a big game hunter in the new Wild Animal Kills Challenge. Accept an invite to this new Free Roam Event to pit yourself against other sportsmen with weapons and offensive attacks against other players disabled – so the focus of this Free Roam Event is squarely on the hunt.

Points are awarded based on the size of the animal, with small animals worth one point, medium size worth two, and large animals worth three. As the challenge unfolds, prized and especially dangerous predators like wolves, cougars and bears will emerge… take them down for bonus points.

Also live today is Head For The Hills, a new Showdown Mode where players take turns making a last-ditch run across no-man's-land to their safe house, while opponents have only one objective: to hunt you down. Stake out the high ground, hide in the shadows or stalk your enemies out in the open, but don’t let them get to safety. We will also add two more new Showdown Modes over the next two weeks - stay tuned for details on Public Enemyand Sport of Kings coming in the weeks ahead.

No indications of addressing common bugs / glitches / exploits but then again, I saw a couple things being addressed as hotfixes on their end.  

EDIT:  There is a 150 MB patch today though (thanks for pointing it out @The_Liquor).

I played about 2 hours and I didn't see the new Hunting Free Roam mode pop, I'm eager to check it out

Can anybody find patch notes for 1.10?

I found this on a website.  It's not from an official source mind you:

Quote

RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 UPDATE 1.10 PATCH NOTES

• Added fixes for exploits with Red Dead Redemption 2 version 1.10.

• Fixed crashing issues players facing after the last update.

• Added fixes for stuttering/lag issues.

• RDR2 update 1.10 has fixed few glitches.

• Added fixes for framerate drop and freezing issues.

• Added performance and stability improvements.

I'll keep an eye out to see if I can get my hands on the real McCoy.

 

btw, these sources indicate that these are just the initial details but R* will be publishing official patch notes soon.  I guess we'll see.  Usually you'll see them mentioned here:

Just let me or another mod know. That's one of the reasons I didn't remove it and instead just closed it when you asked.

I'll also check in why you're not able to send me a msg. I just a couple yesterday from someone else so not sure.

fyi...  I checked my PM inbox /settings and couldn't find any reason why you shouldn't be able to send me a msg.  No one os blocked.  Might have just been a fluke?
