Red Dead Online Finally Getting New Update
After months of waiting, Read Dead Redemption 2’s online player base is finally getting a much-requested update to the online portion of the game.
In what Rockstar Games has described as a “massive update,” the update will reportedly feature “a brand new Frontier Pass,” with an “all-new Role, plus a new Outlaw Pass, tons of community-requested features and fixes, and much more to play and discover in the months to come.” The update will include many “highly requested” features, including musical instruments, the ability to run businesses through the Master Control Terminal, and more. It will come to Red Dead Online early next week, on Tuesday, July 28th.
The company added that more of fan’s suggested updates will find their way to the game through future updates “within the next few weeks,” suggesting that Red Dead Online may be receiving additional updates sooner rather and later. This is great news, seeing as the company has taken such a long time to add any updates at all, and this update appears to not just be a single isolated effort to improve the game: it seems to be more of a longer-term promise to continue a steady flow of new content to the players.
Rockstar Games added that it will be making an effort to keep their title safe from modders, cheaters, and hackers, as well as any players seeking to harass others.
The company also addressed the fact that players need updates in their games now more than ever, discussing how the current situation with the world is making gamers stay at home more, and rely even more heavily on video games as a distraction.
The update seems to be a response to recent fan complaints and backlash in regards to the game’s lack of updates, with Rockstar Games emphasizing the large size of the update multiple times. Recently, fans been protesting Red Dead Online‘s lack of updates by humorously dressing up as clowns and as well as exhibiting other odd behaviors within the game in order to grab the company’s attention. This seems to have worked, with Rockstar Games now giving Read Dead Redemption 2 its much-needed online update.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now for PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
