Rockstar Offers An Update On Red Dead Online’s Beta

by on December 6, 2018

Red Dead Online has been available for around a week now, and Rockstar has been listening to player feedback. Good and bad.

The first set of adjustments are being implemented according to this feedback, including:

  • 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.

Alongside this, Rockstar says that it aims to have a fix in place next week for a few persistent bugs that are causing some players to be kicked from sessions. If you’ve been playing the beta and have some feedback, the developer is encouraging you to step up and let yourself be heard.

Early players are being rewarded for participating, too:

As an added thank you for playing and helping us through the beta period, we’re also awarding everyone that 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.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with Red Dead Online’s beta included and ongoing.
