Patch Update 1.19
There is an update available now on all platforms:
- PS4: 620MB
- Steam: 95MB
- R* Launcher: 725MB
- XB1: 3.2GB
We'll provide any further details/patch notes when available.
Further down in the thread we can see comments from the community stating that there are now fewer animals in the game.
"Still sparse animal appearances, even less random encounters. Been too long since I was worried a bear, wolves, or a cougar would jump me." - u/phead80
There have also been difficulties installing the update on PS4, with complaints about framerate.
Clearing your cache should solve the problem, according to Reddit user u/puffbringer:
"9 out of 10 of complaints here aren't new bugs. You either haven't been playing the game the last couple of months, or you're very unobservant. I guess I should mention what I do with every update. This is for PS4 players (not sure how this works on other platforms sorry).
"Every time there is a new update:
- install it
- turn off your console for at least 5 minutes
- turn it back on
- launch the game
- after the splash screen, press and hold L1 + R1
- keep holding it through all the R* logos and text as the game starts up
- when you reach the messages about the new roles and stuff you know clearing cache worked and you can release the buttons
