Red Dead Redemption 2 1.03 Full Patch Notes Revealed

Earlier this week, Red Dead Redemption 2 received a brand new update on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The main addition to the game included in the 1.03 update is support for the Red Dead Online beta, but it also includes a variety of fixes and improvements that should enhance your RDR2 experience.


Sadly, the original patch notes were incredibly generic, so there was no way to know if some of the game's major glitches were fixed. Today, however, Rockstar Games released a detailed changelog, and we now know what was fixed, exactly.


Other than support for the Red Dead Online beta, the Red Dead Redemption 2 1.03 update introduces some fixes for Game Menus and Options. Specifically, the Dynamic Kill Cams will no longer be triggered when killing animals even if they are disabled in the options menu. An issue that prevented players from studying animals while changing controller layouts with the binoculars out has also been fixed. As was another first-person auto aim issue that triggered when aiming behind a wagon.

Several Story Mode Companions fixes have also been introduced. The issue that made several members of the Van der Linde gang disappear from camp if the "retry from checkpoint" option was selected during the mission "Polite Society, Valentine Style" has finally been fixed, as are several more bugs than made characters disappear and players lose the ability to speak with companions.

The complete list of fixes is incredibly extensive (Rockstar has been busy) so we suggest you check them out in full on the Rockstar Games support site.

As mentioned above, the Red Dead Redemption 2 1.03 update introduced support for the Red Dead Online beta, which can be accessed by all those who have purchased the game at launch.
