Red Dead Online shores up its economy and offers compensation in today’s update

If you’re still beta testing Red Dead Online, or patiently watching from the sidelines while the console players get things sorted ahead of the inevitable but not-yet-announced PC launch, listen up: Rockstar is rolling out its first big patch to the online version of Red Dead Redemption 2 today, and yes, it includes much-needed economy fixes.

They include “increasing the cash and gold payments across a number of different activities” and missions, “reducing the prices of most weapons in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue and Gunsmiths” (with partial refunds for those who already bough tthem and overpaid), and “balancing the values of select pelts, skins and fish as well as horse reviver and pamphlets.”

The team says it’s also still working on “persistent bugs” like the one booting people out of the game. Oh, and have a little compensation 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.”

Hmm. People complained and a AAA game listens in the beta?

No. This is all part of the plan. The first iteration that the game studios present is intentionally horrific, because they plan on receiving backlash. They then backtrack somewhat, to create the impression that they have listened and foster good will with their community. The net result is = the player will still get fleeced with plenty of micro-transactions, but they’ll now won’t feel so bad about it, and the developer will come out of this with massive wad of cash and still smelling like roses.

Rockstar was pretty quick with their updates

i think they live up to their name as game-makers. Blizzard pales with envy.
