Starting with the story mode, patch 1.04 fixes several issues, such as the loading issues that occur after Country Pursuits and The First Shall Be Last missions. More general issues that would freeze the loading process at 90% after loading an autosave or manual save have also been fixed. Lastly, an issue that could make players lose access to weapons and equipment in the weapon wheel after completing a mission replay in Guarma has been remedied.

As already mentioned, this latest patch also brings fixes for Red Dead Online. Alongside general stability improvements, the update fixes an issue that could make your temporary horse "Scrawny Nag" appear when whistling if the player had removed an injured horse without healing, another problem where players were getting stuck in the house in the Love and Honor mission, and several others.

Full patch notes can be found on Rockstar Games' official website.

While the patch notes seem exhaustive enough, it seems like there are several undocumented changes introduced by the new update.

According to reports from players on Reddit, fishing in Red Dead Online has been tweaked, with the catch rate of "good" fish which you can sell for relatively high amounts of money being decreased. It also seems like it's much easier to find stagecoaches and wagons following the patch, as showcased in the video below.
