Rockstar Patches Red Dead Redemption Invisibility Glitch

Yesterday we posted about an invisibility glitch that was vexing players of Red Dead Redemption, particularly during online play. Today Rockstar has a patch ready to make horses, riders and weapons appear as intended.

Relief is in sight for the invisibility bug that made such a buzz yesterday among players of Rockstar's newly-released Red Dead Redemption. Yesterday the developer promised a fix as soon as possible. That fix is now live, according to a Rockstar representative, who issued the following statement to Kotaku:

"We have just deployed a fix that should address the issues some people have been experiencing in Red Dead Redemption online multiplayer. This fix should address 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."

To apply the patch, simply make sure you're signed into your consoles respected online services with a valid username before booting up the game. Both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions will update automatically.

If for any reason that doesn't fix your problems, feel free to contact Rockstar using the information provided below.

"If anyone still needs assistance, players should feel free to contact [email protected] and be sure to include their platform and online ID."

    I picked up my copy of Red Dead yesterday arvo. Not sure who broke street date, but I got to play it last night, which was awesome. I was looking forward to playing Split Second last night, but the release date has been pushed back for that one, so getting Red Dead a day early was a huge bonus.

    Have only played a couple of hours so far, but it looks amazing, and plays really well... a lot like GTA4, not surprisingly. Can't wait to finish work today so I can go home and play all night!

    Fixed already? Amazing. Some companies/IW take months to fix anything.

      Just don't hold your breath for PC support from Rockstar.

    Now that is some quick patching. I picked up red dead this afternoon, will be a busy weekend I think :)

    THEY NEVER PATCHED IT, JUST MADE IT HARDER TO DO, NOW THEY MADE IT EASIER AFTER PATCHING ALL THE HOUSES. OH YEAH THERE IS A NEW GLITCH GOING AROUND WHERE PEOPLE CAN FREEZE YOUR SCREEN IN MULTIPLAYER. THANKS ROCKSTAR!
