Though Red Dead Redemption 2 arriving on PC is great news, that doesn't mean the launch went off without a hitch. In fact, the PC port was downright unplayable for some. Luckily, a new Red Dead Redemption 2 PC update is here to fix many of those issues, including the game-breaking crashes that have been running rampant. 

According to Rockstar, here's which issues were addressed outside of the usual stability tweaks:

  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when changing Windows audio devices/settings while the game was running
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when launching the game after switching between Vulkan and DirectX 12
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when graphical settings were changed and applied while close to the VRAM limit
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash during loading screens when launching Story Mode or Red Dead Online
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when attempting to quit the game
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when switching between several input devices
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash during gameplay when using keyboard and mouse controls
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when transitioning between Story Mode and Red Dead Online
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash when entering Photo Mode while the player was in cinematic camera mode
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a crash during certain weather conditions on systems with multiple graphics cards
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in graphical errors and other instability when using Vulkan with multiple graphics cards
  • Improvements to address an issue that resulted in a random crash during gameplay when using DirectX 12
  • Improvements to address issues that resulted in random crashes during gameplay in Story Mode and Red Dead Online

I didn't experience the photo mode problems myself, but definitely was hit with the audio swap crash more than a few times. The game's message boards were alight with many players experiencing the above issues, so it's good to see that the team has addressed them in bulk with smaller updates rolling out in the future. 

As for the game itself, Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Happy hunting!
