A week following the release of the Red Dead Online Beta, Rockstar Games released today a list of fine adjustments to the game including changes specifically geared towards creating a more balanced, fun, and rewarding overall experience, across all modes and missions.
For those who have been playing, many may have noticed that the game requires some work, hence why it’s still in beta. With Rockstar Games working around the clock to provide the best experience and satisfaction, they will be doing continuous patch to make it more balanced and fair for everyone.
Here’s an overview of the what is implemented today:
- 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.
Currently, Rockstar Games is currently working on fixes for some persistent bugs that are causing some players to be kicked from sessions, and they aim to have fixes for these live next week.
To give thanks to the fans who have been playing the beta, Rockstar Games is awarding everyone that joined in to play Red Dead Online Beta at any point through midnight PST today with a gift of RDO$250 and 15 Gold Bars. Players can expect the gift to start arriving today and will hit all eligible players by Friday, December 14.
Red Dead Online Beta is available now for those who have purchased Red Dead Redemption 2 for Xbox One and PS4.
