New Red Dead Online Update Released, Here Are the Patch Notes and New Content

A new Red Dead Redemption 2 Online update is live on PS4, Xbox One, and PC alongside new content and some official patch notes. Unfortunately, the update -- titled 1.23 -- is a bit on the light and inconsequential side, however, it does add a brand new mission to the game involving a legendary animal hiding in the swamps of Saint Denis.

"Harriet Davenport has received word of an untamed beast older than time itself nesting outside Saint Denis," reads an official blrub about the mission. "The cold-blooded Legendary Banded Gator has a taste for human flesh - as well as the teeth and temperament to satisfy such a craving. Maintain a safe distance and sedate the primordial creature for Harriet or bring its unique skin to Gus to craft an imposing coat for wear."

Below, you can check out the full patch notes for the update:
