Red Dead Redemption 2 recently received a new patch, patch 1.06, which introduces new content for Red Dead Online, but it seems like the update also introduced a graphical downgrade for no reason at all.
Multiple users have noted how patch 1.06 removed ambient occlusion from the PlayStation 4 version of the game, making it look significantly worse than the Xbox One release.

As the removal of ambient occlusion doesn't seem to bring any performance improvement, this is likely unintentional. Rockstar Games has yet to address the issue, but we will let you know more about it as soon as the publisher makes an announcement.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is among the best open world games released in recent years, offering an incredible and epic experience.
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.
