Red Dead Redemption has landed! …and not without some drama. We hear from Rockstar Games that many players have been experiencing an impressive invisible glitch as they try out the multiplayer element of the game on console. Not one to dilly-dally, the developers have sorted out a fix which should clean up the issue, regardless of which box you’re gaming on.
This fix addresses a specific issue that was found where the player’s multiplayer avatar, their horse or their weapons would occasionally not be visible in multiplayer games as well as an issue that some players were experiencing where they would lose connection to the various multiplayer modes.
…I hear it’s really difficult to try and shoot bears with an invisible gun…
Anyway. If you’ve got the game on PS3, here’s the deal:
You must be signed into a valid PlayStation Network ID and be connected to the PlayStation Network before starting the game up. If those two conditions are met, your PS3 will automatically download the update in the background and the game will apply the fixes when you start or join a multiplayer session.
You must be signed into a valid Xbox LIVE Gamertag and be connected to Xbox LIVE before starting the game up. If those two conditions are met, your Xbox 360 will automatically download the update in the background and the game will apply the fixes when you start or join a multiplayer session.
…if you’re still not there, or suffering other dramas, drop the devs a line at RDRsupport@rockstargames.com, mentioning your platform and online ID.
The game’s developers from Rockstar Games will be playing in random online matches – despatch their character and you’ll go in the running to be featured in upcoming DLC as a unique multiplayer character!
