The “beta” for Red Dead Online has seen another new update this week, this time introducing a new mode for Showdown, some snazzy new clothes to dress up your outlaw, and some bonuses for the week.
The new Showdown mode is called Plunder and sees teams square off to capture supplies from a central location and bring it back to their base. Supplies can also be grabbed from an enemy base if you’re clever enough, but caution is advised since carrying supplies makes you visible to everyone. To help you out, team-based Dead Eye Ability Cards can be used to buff up your fellow bandits, like the Focus Fire Card that grants added damage to teammates while your Dead Eye is active.
Of course, the true point in playing Red Dead Online is dressing up your avatar, and this week sees a new hat, jacket, and pants added to the clothiers. This week will also bring access to all coats, holsters, boots, and gloves up to Rank 40 to all players until Monday, April 15th. Higher ranking players will see the Turkoman, Missouri Fox Trotter and Arabian horses lowered to Rank 40, while Volatile Dynamite, Incendiary Buckshot, Explosive Slug, Express Explosive, and Dynamite Arrow pamphlets are lowered to Rank 60.
