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.”
Today we are starting to implement the first set of adjustments to the Red Dead Online Beta including changes specifically geared towards creating a more balanced, fun and rewarding overall experience, across all modes and missions.
