A Red Dead Online update broke the game and now another has been rolled out by Rockstar to fix it. Though, it has reverted things back to a pre-patch state. 

Shortly after the massive update for Red Dead Online on July 28, players very quickly noticed that there were countless bugs and glitches, some seriously impacting regular gameplay.


The list of bugs and glitches after the July 28 update was so extensive that the game’s subreddit made a dedicated thread for collecting known issues.

The Naturalist update was very long-awaited, but it’s not been smooth sailing since.

The most serious among them was a series of connection errors, stopping players on all platforms playing at all. Just as the community was starting to gear up again in frustration, Rockstar pushed out an update on August 10 to supposedly fix the errors.


However, in doing so, they appeared to have completely broken many other functions of the game, including the disappearance of NPCs, Animals, and Mission Givers. Countless bugs cropped up.

Popular RDO community Twitter page, RedDeadRDC, documented the plight of bugs and glitches.

Players immediately responded with reports and videos of the litany of bugs they had experienced. These ranged from bizarre horse glitches, to a recurrence of the connection errors the update was meant to fix.


Another player listed off all the game-breaking errors they had endured. “No NPCs, no animals, horse wagons drive themselves in Saint-Denis, NPCs that do spawn are unkillable, at some points myself as the player am invincible, auto-aim is broken, dead eye is broken, my horses go invisible or completely disappear randomly, lobbies only have 3-10 players at a time, NPCs disappear randomly.”

Again, another mega-thread for issues has been created on the game’s subreddit, with a laundry list of items.

New RDR2 update fixes game

Following on from this plague of problems, it has been reported that Rockstar have since taken action to resolve things. Well, actually, taking things back to a pre-patch state.


On August 13, TezFunz2 – popular Rockstar leaker – posted the following: “A new patch to Read Dead Online is available on consoles, which rolls it back to the previous state.”

Completely rolling back an update in this way could be a sign of further changes to come in the online game mode. It’s unlikely that the developers will roll out the same sort of update soon, although an improved one will more than certainly be in the works.


Next time, players and devs alike will be hoping things run a little smoother.


Red Ded Redemption cosplayers become real-life Arthur & Sadie Adler

Two incredible gaming cosplayers came together to create their own versions of Red Dead Redemption’s Arthur and Sadie Adler — and the photos look like they’re straight out of the game.

The first Red Dead Redemption game came out in 2010 and immediately earned mass appeal, with the 2018 prequel keeping the franchise alive and fans flocking to the servers of the Western adventure game.


As with every popular game, film or TV show, though, fans have all different ways of honoring their favorites, and cosplayers are no exception.

Arthur and Sadie are a favorite of Red Dead fans.

We’ve seen some incredible cosplays in our time, but this one is really something special, with ‘maul_cosplay‘ creating his flawless take on protagonist Arthur Morgan.


That’s not all, though, as he also recruited female cosplayer ‘msskunk’ as Sadie, bringing the fan-favorite couple to life.

“RDR2 is my absolute favorite game and I think Arthur and Sadie should spend more time together,” maul said in his Instagram post. “That’s what the photos are about. Arthur and Sadie enjoying life and spending some quality time together.”

Arthur and Sadie’s relationship was an important one in Red Dead Redemption, and it would have been interesting to see their story developed further, and fans are definitely interested in seeing what occurs between the two — and the cosplay really showcases that. Not to mention, the outfits and setting are literally spot-on, and it’s almost impossible to find any difference between this and the characters themselves.

Both the photos and the cosplays themselves came out looking incredible, as if the characters were lifted right out of the game. Heck, you wouldn’t be laughed at for mistaking this for game art rather than just a photo of two cosplayers paying homage.

This isn’t the first of maul’s cosplays to make waves, with some brilliant looks taken from the likes of Assassin’s Creed and Borderlands 3’s Zane.

If you’re looking for great gaming cosplays, maul and msskunk might be one of the best places to look, since their attention to detail is sublime.
