Red Dead Online celebrates its first holiday season with festive themed modes and free gifts, since the multiplayer component of Red Dead Redemption 2 launched earlier this year for consoles and for PC last month.
While the map will be covered in heavy snow and holiday decorations, players will be able to take part in Showdown modes such as Spoils of War, Up in Smoke, and Overrun. PlayStation 4 players will also have access to Gun Rush, Make it Count and Last Stand modes until Jan. 6.
Rockstar Games will be handing out a ton of free in-game items throughout the season. Currently, players who have logged in since Dec. 13 until Jan. 6 can claim the following from the Benefits section of the main menu:
- 3,000 Club XP
