Rockstar Games have unleashed an unexpected update to Red Dead Redemption II on all formats, PS4, Xbox One and PC. The file size ranges from around 600mb on PS4 to 3GB on Xbox One but unfortunately Rockstar have yet to release the patch notes.
However, it does seem this is a small patch so will be mostly bug fixes and general stability fixes and improvements. Previous updates included a a photo mode which is a great addition since there are some very good looking vistas in the not so Wild West, plus new Bounty Hunter Missions, new Gang Hideouts, and new weapons.
The game was hit with a big recently when lady horses started to grow testicles. Much was made of the anatomically correct male horses when the game launched but the appearance of dangling bits under mares was clearly a glitch in the game which was made even more curious by the fact that some players could see them and others could not.
