The world of Red Dead Online has expanded once again, at least as it relates to content. An update to the multiplayer title earlier this week has offered up some new missions, new clothes, and a few other bits and bobs.
The new missions in question are available from some of Red Dead’s more popular NPCs: Jake and Sadie Adler at the Adler Ranch or the gunslinger Black Belle in Lemoyne. These two new mission givers offer up some fresh free roam missions that promise new characters for players to meet along the way. The update has also granted some of the first early access content exclusively for the PlayStation 4; specifically, a new tomahawk and related Showdown mode, a free-for-all Last Stand Showdown mode, and a horse. There’s also more pretty clothes to dress yourself up in like a new skirt, new vest, and new boots.
All of these updates appear to have piled together to make Red Dead Online a more palatable and playable environment according to one first-hand account, at least. The most notable addition in recent weeks has been the inclusion of a Defensive playstyle that makes it harder to be one-shot and impervious to being randomly lassoed by roving jackasses. Of course, you’re welcome to agree with or refute this opinion below. I’m personally curious to read those accounts, myself.
