Rockstar Games recently announced an update for Red Dead Redemption on the PlayStation 5 on their Twitter handle. This made many fans happy as they would be able to enjoy RDR in the most optional settings for the PlayStation.

Although the post received a lot of comments celebrating the update, many fans, as usual, were focused on the release of GTA 6. While many players updated the game for the clean 60FPS experience, others seemed to be done with the game and anticipating the next title in line.

With the update, the game also brings in subtitles. Players will get to experience captioned cutscenes as they progress in the game. However, fans have welcomed the update despite prior criticism of performance and the $50 price. The lack of multiplayer and a PC release has also led to some disappointing responses from players.

Fans’ reaction to hearing about the new update

Take-Two defends the $50 price point, considering players get the base game and Undead Nightmare. Many fans have been calling Rockstar out on their laziness of not releasing a new game. While most comments hinted towards the anticipation that awaits GTA 6, some players were genuinely happy about the update.

There was also an addition from the original poster correcting their statement and mentioning that the 60FPS toggle will also be available for players playing on the PS4 Pro.

One concerned fan asked the original poster if the high FPS comes with a resolution drop. To which they received a reply saying the game runs at 1080p or higher but asked for a second ear to clarify this.

A PC gamer mentioned that the change doesn’t affect them, but they found it interesting that Red Dead Redemption has introduced the 60 FPS toggle for the PlayStation 4 Pro.
