Today Rockstar reached out with a press release providing some details on changes being made to the beta of Red Dead Online, which is Red Dead Redemption 2’s popular multiplayer feature.
The update has the goal of “creating a more balanced, fun and rewarding overall experience, across all modes and missions.”
Below you can read a quick and dirty list of some of the changes being made to the beta:
- Increasing the cash and gold payments across a number of different activities including Free Roam Missions, Free Roam Events, replays of A Land of Opportunities Missions, Showdown Series modes and more.
- Reducing the prices of most weapons in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue and Gunsmiths. For players that have already purchased weapons at the previous prices, we will automatically deposit the difference to player balances starting today – please look for an alert message the next time you log in to the Red Dead Online Beta to notify you of this change, refunds may take up until Monday, December 10th to reach all eligible players.
- Balancing the values of select pelts, skins and fish as well as horse reviver and pamphlets.
Things don’t end here, as Rockstar promises that effort to improve the balance of the game will continue, with the development team aware of the feedback and looking to implement further adjustments based on it.
In particular, fixes to bugs that are causing players to be kicked from the game are currently being worked on and should be pushed to the live servers next week. Players are encouraged to share further feedback to help improve the game.
To express its gratitude, the developer is also going to offer RDO$250 and 15 Gold Bars to all players who tried the beta, and those should be delivered by next Friday, December 14th.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One.
