RDR2 Getting DLSS Patch Next Week
Peter Donnell / 3 months ago
Next week will see another big update for Red Dead Redemption 2, with the release of Red Dead Online: Blood Money. While the update will focus on the online aspect, adding plenty of new content there, I’m most interested in the DLSS update to both the online and story mode of the game.
As Rockstar said in their recent press release, you’ll be able to leverage the power of compatible Nvidia graphics cards, basically, any RTX card, to gain a big performance boost in RDR2. That’s pretty awesome, especially since we know DLSS technology works really well, and given how hard it can be to upgrade your GPU right now, any performance-boosting technology is most welcome.
What Rockstar Had to Say
“As part of the July 13th update, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online on PC will offer NVIDIA DLSS support to all Windows users with eligible NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics cards. The newly supported feature boosts frame rates and generates beautiful sharp images.”
Right now, it’s unclear which version of DLSS Red Dead Redemption 2 will be using. It’s most likely that it’ll use 220.127.116.11, but keep in mind, some games have launched using an older version, such a version 2.1 being used on Doom Eternal recently. Could this also be the first game to feature the upcoming DLSS Ultra Quality Mode we’ve been hearing about? Again, we’ll have to wait and see, but I, for one, would like to see the latest DLSS and that new mode featured on this game!
The update launches along side the new content update on July 13th. Find out what else comes in this update here.
“Step into the burgeoning criminal underworld of Red Dead Online: Blood Money on July 13, and prove you are willing to get your hands dirty in service to some particularly notorious and well-connected members of Saint Denis society. There are whispers in the alleys of Lemoyne’s capital that Guido Martelli — right-hand man and underboss to the infamous Angelo Bronte — needs gunslingers of strong constitution. Martelli is seeking to recover a valuable commodity known as Capitale. Originally devised as a unique system of exchange for more sensitive business dealings away from the watchful eyes of the taxman, it’s since ended up in the hands of nearly every lowlife across the five states. Now, Bronte and Martelli want it back — if you can find and return it, Martelli will reward you with access to more worthwhile criminal opportunities. Martelli is purely focused on results – entry into this world of more civilized crime requires nothing beyond a trusty sidearm and the willingness to use it, and no upfront investment is required.”
