Update 1.14 for Red Dead Redemption 2 is here and live for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Red Dead Redemption 2 got off to a bit of a rocky start for PC players who dove in over the last week. I myself was unable to launch the game for several days. It seems that Rockstar is slowly getting a handle on things, though, and has recently pushed title update 1.14 for Red Dead Redemption 2 out to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Title Update 1.14

Have a look at the full patch notes for update 1.14 below, which includes a laundry list of fixes for PC players experiencing trouble.

Graphics & Performance Fixes

  • Added an additional launch argument (-cpuLoadRebalancing) to rebalance workload on the CPU cores and avoid hitting an edge-case in certain NVIDIA graphics card drivers that causes significant stalls on 4-core and 6-core CPUs

That’s a lot to dig into, and you’d be forgiven if you didn’t read them all. Most of it is boring technical stuff the average user wouldn’t concern themselves with. I think the biggest takeaway here is that Red Dead Redemption 2, while it has problems on PC, is headed in the right direction. It’s one of our favorite games at Guide Stash, and every new patch gets us a bit closer to maximum stability and more of those precious frames while riding around on Ultra settings.
