Red Dead Redemption 2 PC: Surprise update fixes Rockstar Games Launcher issues

Rockstar has issued a surprise update for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC as the game has seen some instability issues as it launched on the new platform earlier this week.

To play the game on PC, you need to download and install the Rockstar Games Launcher – this has been causing issues for some players that have been booted from the client (and the game) since it came to PC.

Rockstar has acknowledged the issues, and the legions of irritated fans, and sent out an update for the Rockstar Games launcher that should hopefully mitigate a few of the issues players have been experiencing.

Update v1.0.9.164 fixes a decryption bug that prevented eager players from accessing the game via a pre-load, and solves some issues players faced with Epic Games Store, too

You can check all the fixes included in the new download below.
