When does Red Dead blood money come out?

Based on previous releases, this week's Red Dead Online Blood Money update is expected to be released by 2pm BST on Tuesday, July 13, 2021. Rockstar Games doesn't normally share an exact release time, so we're not expecting any further updates on the subject. FortniteRed Dead Online update LIVE with RDR2 Blood Money patch notes

A new Red Dead Redemption 2 comparison video that has been shared online a few hours ago showcases the visual and performance improvements that NVIDIA DLSS brings to the open-world title by Rockstar Games.

The new video, which has been put together by Benchmark Lab, does a great job highlighting the differences between DLSS, TAA, and MSAA and the visual and performance improvements that DLSS brings. You can check out the video by heading over to YouTube.

Red Dead Redemption 2 received NVIDIA DLSS support on PC with update 1.27, which has gone live yesterday. The update also introduced new content for Red Dead Online on all formats, such as new jobs, crimes, clothing, and more.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Google Stadia. Learn more about the game by checking out Alessio's review of the Xbox One X version.

Red Dead Redemption 2 may not be perfect, but its minor shortcomings are like tiny blemishes on a stunningly beautiful face. In a way, they only serve as a reminder of how this world isn't made for perfection. Every single aspect of the game will put you into the very shoes of an outlaw roaming America with his gang as they try to escape the law long enough to make the money needed to disappear for good. It's an epic, memorable and engrossing tale which also elevates the open world genre to new heights with the brand new interaction system, a cast of unforgettable characters and a ton of high-quality content to play for a long time.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Finally Gets DLSS Support

Tom's Hardware 14 July, 2021 - 02:28pm

It's great to see Red Dead Redemption 2 finally getting Nvidia's image reconstruction technology. When the game launched it was notorious for being seriously demanding on GPU hardware, to the point where the then-flagship RTX 2080 Ti could not hit 60FPS at 4k resolution unless you dropped the image quality settings a bit.

Now with the DLSS update, you can expect your 2080 Ti to hit 60FPS in performance mode (according to Nvidia's testing) at 4K resolutions, at least with DLSS in performance mode, which is 1080p reconstructed to 4K.

Products from the Ampere lineup also fare well with the DLSS update, the RTX 3060 12GB can achieve almost 45FPS with the same DLSS settings and resolution compared to just 30FPS with no DLSS. If we jump up to Nvidia's current flagship (well, technically it's the penultimate Ampere, as there's still the RTX 3090), the RTX 3080 Ti can deliver around 85 fps instead of just 59 fps.

Luckily Red Dead Redemption 2 does come with the latest version of DLSS, version 2.2.10, which features noticeably better image quality than DLSS 2.0. Nvidia has been constantly updating DLSS since version 2.0 with several micro-updates, including revisions of DLSS 2.1 and 2.2. However, not all games update to the latest version of DLSS right off the bat, so it's nice to see Rockstar implementing the latest version of the algorithm for its first iteration of DLSS.

This shouldn't be a big issue, as you can manually update to the latest DLSS version yourself in any DLSS 2.0 supported game. If by chance Red Dead Redemption 2 ends up not running the latest version of DLSS in the future, or if you have another DLSS 2.x game that's lagging behind, it's potentially as simple as updating a DLL file yourself. (Nvidia makes no promises that will work, though in our testing so far it seems to do just fine.)
