  • Fix for Land Grab multiplayer mode where occasionally the match will start with the timer at 500 and the game doesn’t end and no XP is awarded.
  • Fix for player becoming stuck indefinitely when sitting at a certain Liar's Dice chair in Casa Madrugada.
  • Fix for the host entering an unresponsive loading screen when client opts to join another session as the lobby timer reaches 0 seconds.
  • Fix for picking up opponents bag at the same time as it is returned to their chest, during a game of Grab the Bag.
  • Fix for issue that causes multiple mine carts to appear when replaying Gaptooth Gang Hideout.
  • Fix for selecting private Free Roam during a barker countdown, which was causing a constant load.

Undead Nightmare DLC:

  • The Gunslinger Achievement/Trophy now recognizes zombies as enemies.
  • Fixed a disparity in the headshots and undead headshots stat when shooting zombie animals.
  • Fix for meter not advancing during Undead Overrun when one player leaves the game in progress.
  • Fix for player occasionally bonding with undead horses and the Four Horses of the Apocalypse.
  • Fix for occasional crashing or freezing in the Las Hermanas area & during the mission Mother Superior Blues.

Liars & Cheats DLC:

  • Fix for player becoming stuck indefinitely when sitting at certain Liar's Dice chairs.
  • Fix for issues when a user is removed from a Liar’s Dice session due to connection issues with other players, but the camera remains in the dice game while the player is returned to Free Roam or chooses other game modes.
  • Fix for issues with obtaining The Big Bluff Achievement (Xbox 360 only).

        R* You guys know everyone would love a zombie freemode so what are you waiting for?

          Peaple demand that Rockstar changes Undead Overrun back to exactly how it was. The only way I would go for a compromise is for it to be changed back the way it was when your in a private session

              undead ---htmare weapons in main campain plz that would be fun lol and cheats that are added with dlcs like with gta iv super punch for example is added with gay tony could do the same for red dead redemption dlcs like zombie gun set super throwing weapon range low gravity forever lasting phosphorous (like with guns blazing) spawn zombie and maybe even add preorder features like golden guns and war horse to undead ---htmare and apocalypse horses would be good in main campain too thanks

                Can you please change Undead Overrun? I don't see the fun in dying within 10 seconds of Sudden death and the maps that have been shortened. Which is more fun?
                Holding off on a roof wasting ammo, then doing laps around the map with your teammates, then running into the horde with a Torch and Dynamite? - The normal Undead Overrun Sudden death
                Or : Rushing to the coffin, not having time to mess about because in Sudden Death Retchers have amazing accuracy and powerful vomit, and running in a 50 meter map? - The new Undead Overrun Sudden death
                Please, we payed for this game, and we enjoyed it ALLOT, and now it's ruined. Since we are fans of Rockstar, and we did pay for the game, will you please change Undead Overrun back to the way it was? Nothing else, just back to the way it was. Thanks

                  Rockstar, I have been playing RDR for almost a year now. I have enjoyed myself thoroughly even without the DLCs and I have to say, this is the most impressive game I have ever played :) Now, I don't know what the other guys have said about Undead Overrun sudden death and all, but if you could correct the update that would be super. Plus, I hope this isn't too much to ask, but can you have an undead ---htmare free roam? That would be so cool, and so many more players would want to play it due to how addictive zombie games can be :) I have friends in school who keep saying CoD or Minecraft is better. I don't wanna judge them, but if you added an undead free roam you'd seriously catch the attention of gamers worldwide. I hope you take this into consideration. XD Add me RyanNg96: young but good gamer :D

                    Did you patch the funny glitches to get out of the Map like via the railway tunnel at hen---ans sted ?
                    We loved it !! . now you end up in a load Screen and respawn somewhere.
                    Was there Complaints ? I doubt it . these little glitches bring lots of fun exploring the Outside map an they do no harm to anyone.

                      The changes to Undead Overrun are lame, it's no longer fun to play and I've not touched it since, it's now dull and boring.
                      Why not have two modes? A normal mode and a 'Quick' mode, because that's exactly what it is now, too darn quick.
                      Rock*, please restore Undead Overrun to it's former glory.

                        Hey rockstar I was playing the poker and liars dice i love it i just feel as though the 100$ buy in is too small to be the max wager an update ragarding the max buy ins would be much appreciated as i dont feel as though im gambling much having over 3 grand just dulls the experiance. I dont feel the intesity no more and in some ways gets boring maybe having 1k games or even 10k high stakes poker/liars dice! haha it would be a major improvement for the gambling addicts lol jokes but in all seriousness if it isnt a problem it would be much appreciated. Thank you.

                          Just change Undead Overrun back to the way it was, please. No one likes the new version at all.

                            hey guys i havent played rdr since new years, i put it into today and was just baffled by the undead over run. we get into sudden death and i just explode, then the other 2 guys explode. i know why you did this but its dumb. and it really wasnt that big of a problem waiting for others to die. you should of put a timer to stand on the roof if someone has no movement at all then he explodes if thats the problem you wanted to get rid of. anyways i dotn think ill play undead ---htmare anymore. and the fonts at the posts looked weird i think there changed. before i got to wave 34 and over 500 kills when sudden death was over running for my life with the little bit of ammo i had left with my heart pounding rolling and everything i could do, now i just die. the maps are already very small and not many maps as there is and now i hear its limited?

                            thumbs down i dont like the changes sorry and i will not recomend undead ---htmare anymore to anyone

                              I already posted this in semi-reply to another comment on another thread, but since it's so far off topic there, I am reposting it here.

                              I think the suggestion of adding another island or furthering the expanse of an existing area via DLC is an incredible idea. The idea of adding characters from other existing IP (elves from Family Guy? Come on.) is likely impossible and somewhat absurd. Although, to spin that basic idea around and work with what R* has already established within continuity, I believe that the addition of the Jersey Devil in a new area North of Tall Trees or the Skunk Ape in a new are Southeast of Thieve's Landing would be sheer genius. I would happily pay as much as I did for the existing DLC if I could mount-up against other cryptozoological creatures in expanded areas!

                              Edit: I would also like to make a humble suggestion - Please release an update that will stop John/Jack from automatically pulling the knife after skinning an animal. He should revert to the weapon he was using before the skinning is initiated. I cannot count how many times I have been shot or attacked after skinning an animal because I pulled the knife instead of the gun and didn't have time to switch weapons.

                                i have seem to be having problems with undead overrun multiplayer for the past few days. its really glitchy, i have experienced it crashing on one or two occassions, and the maps have seem to gone smaller ? and to mention the undead seem to stand around so you have to go hunting them. and the most annoying part is that when i get to sudden death every 1 blows up within like a few seconds.i dont no if there is an update i need for my xbox. but to me this is unplayable. and i have never had these experiances in the past with this game. i hope this can be fixed. so for the mean time i guess im going to have to stick with call of duty black ops zombies.

                                  Hey R*-
                                  I sent you guys an e-mail about an issue... I'm just wondering if anyone else is noticing a difference in the look of the game after the update?? The world is kinda grainy and surroundings take longer to fully load... It doesn't look as realistic.

                                      Hey R*. I know this is off topic and all but please don't delete it. I hear there's going to be a red dead movie and if this is true i think y'all should do everything in your power to assure that Viggo Mortensen gets the role of John Marston. Just saying

                                        hey Rock Star, Could you guys add an undead ---htmare free roam?? It would make free roam so much more fun if you could run around hunting down zombies with friends. Also could you add trains in free roam? With maybe bank/train robbery missions. Just a thought, thank you.

                                          Rockstargames ,
                                          And yet the disappointment continues....no changes to Undead Overrun. Over 300 comments on the Social Club comment boards and 97% are negative regarding the update. What more do you need to make the changes. Here is another fact while playing with 2 of my posse mates( needing a forth) last ---ht from 8 pm set till 1am
                                          We could not get a forth player and we did try other Undead sessions , it was like this all weekend . No one is playing because they do not like the changes. I even tried finding sessions on my own and still never got anyone to play with but my own posse mates. Please do give me a the company line your looking into it, that's not cutting it any more, do something or lose your game playing audience , my posse and I have our next game lined up and will use Red Dead Redemption as a trade in for that is how disappointed we are.

                                          The fix is easy give us back the full maps and the ability to make a last stand on roofs and mountains during Sudden Death and maybe spawn one TNT spitter for each player who makes it to a last stand. Be proactive and honest the update did not work or please anyone and now more than ever we are losing connections ,wagons have no wheels or are buried in the ground, the drivers are outside the wagon. The update in my opinion for the modes I play has been a ---htmare. I can no longer sit by and watch and play a game that is pro forming as badly as this when it was fine before the update. I have logged in over 900 hours and up until this update enjoyed myself greatly, me and my posse are all fifth legends and have created new game tags so we can level up again because we enjoyed it the first time so much. Listen to the people. Return Undead Overrun to it former greatness and I'm sure we will be playing for another 900 hours.

                                          Thank you,
