Red Dead Redemption 2 is only a couple of days away and it has been confirmed there will be a day one patch and also, video streaming embargos will vary based on location.
Why can't they release the patch before launch? I mean the game's pre-loaded already. That means it can't receive updates till it's activated?
I agree they should release the day1 patch a day before launch for people who brought it digital
I don't buy digital but I approve that message lol
That’s why it’s called Day 1 patch.
It'd be cool if it was preloaded too so that the moment the game is available the patch is installed and the game is ready to go.
From what I understand it's a 3gb patch
That's quite a significant patch size. I will probably wait few weeks before purchasing the game. Games of this size always end up with some problems requiring numerous important patches..
@Sokol I understand your point but I have to say this is not a Bethesda or Ubisoft game with loads of immersion breaking glitches at release... you're missing out on the early fun!
3gb? That's nothing. Some games download updates way beyond 20+ gb
dang, ima just hardwire the ps4 for this
Broke ass bitches with shitty internet disagree
Just hope it's not one of those games you have to actually start up to download and install even more shit. Those piss me off the most.
I'm not too fussed. Just means extra polish and fixes. For those with crap connections & speed I feel for you don't get me wrong but this will (I presume) make the game better, even if it's subtle, though 3GB suggests otherwise :D
ok if you got a megabit a second download speed , if 50 gig , talking few hours here , be sleeping on it playing when i wake up n bake up :)
well, we still dont have to wait to install the full thing right? not like we gotta redownload 90gigs
Just hope it's a relatively small Day 1 patch.
Can't wait to test out those horse nuts physics!
Yay! I finally finished preloading RDR2! (Reads about Day 1 patch) ....well, shit.
From the article it states the day one patch is not required to start the game.
That would only work for physical copies. Anyways, moot point by now.
I download the digital version and I didn’t even see any update pop up when I start the game.
I feel you...lol!
Good lord more downloading
Almost 95 gb game needs 3gb patch? Its seems R* devs seeking to hits 100gb before week 1
a 3GB day one patch is quite small... but its still annoying...
YEAH!!! Gimmie your hot steamy patch! Deposit it right on these ample 2-discs. :D
Worked on a game for 8-years and still requires a Day1 patch? LAME!
Where are the reviews at? I'm gonna get it, but I'd still like to have an idea of what's up, going in. Are they doing a hardline day one embargo or somethin'?
what is it with embargos? you only do embargo if you got something to hide. Red Dead game is fantastic and I dont even like wild west cowboy type games. i played it through from beginning to end. This sequel I believe will be just as fantastic if not more. Dont be giving that excuse of so that it doesnt spoil it for others, well they shouldnt be looking at videos or streaming of the game then and its their own fault.
patch is fine, what annoys me is they allowing these scrubs on twitch to stream it while the rest of us have to wait
