For the last week or so Red Dead Redemption 2 players have had the opportunity to delve into the super rich world of Red Dead Online. Sitting in Beta form, the whole idea of this is to allow Rockstar to gather up enough information and ideas to ensure that the full release will be at its optimum. Today full details of the first set of amendments to Red Dead Online have been confirmed.
Feedback is crucial to Rockstar in regards Red Dead Online and after one weeks worth of game time, they are in a position to make a few little changes which should see the overall experience improved. Balance is essential for the whole Online community to receive the most fun and starting today we are seeing the first set of adjustments made. The Red Dead Online Week 1 update amendments include:
- Increasing the cash and gold payments across a number of different activities including Free Roam Missions, Free Roam Events, replays of A Land of Opportunities Missions, Showdown Series modes and more.
- Reducing the prices of most weapons in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue and Gunsmiths. For players that have already purchased weapons at the previous prices, we will automatically deposit the difference to player balances starting today – please look for an alert message the next time you log in to the Red Dead Online Beta to notify you of this change, refunds may take up until Monday, December 10th to reach all eligible players.
- Balancing the values of select pelts, skins and fish as well as horse reviver and pamphlets.
Rockstar are continuing to monitor how Red Dead Online Beta plays out and are still working on a variety of fixes for numerous bugs, including that which kicks players from their sessions. They hope to have that solved by next week, but in the meantime, as a thank you for playing Red Dead Online Beta, they’ll be rewarding everyone that has joined in to play the Red Dead Online Beta at any point through midnight PST today with a gift of RDO$250 and 15 Gold Bars. Gifts should start arriving today and will hit all eligible players by Friday, December 14th.
