Red Dead Online: Frontier Pursuits Out Now

PS4 players get immediate access to a new Role and can play online without PS Plus until September 16.

Today, the world of Red Dead Online deepens with the introduction of three new Frontier Pursuits, each presenting their own unique path filled with themed activities for players looking to thrive on the frontier. Choose to become a Bounty Hunter and hunt down dangerous criminals, partner with Cripps in an entrepreneurial venture to turn their camp into a bustling business as a Trader, unearth treasures both valuable and arcane as a Collector, focusing on one role at a time or all three at once.

In addition to Specialist Roles, today’s update includes a wide range of new content and features to enhance the overall game including:

  • New items, weapons, clothing and horse-drawn vehicles
  • Directional damage indicators to display where your character is hit
  • Additional horse breeds
  • The ability to change your character’s appearance without resetting progress
  • Expanded custom outfit slots
  • The ability to name saved outfits
  • Role-specific Free Roam Events
  • Increased selling prices for looted Jewelry
  • Increased movement and animations speeds for more responsive combat (including aiming, cocking and reloading), faster looting and more
  • Additional game balancing and improvements

All aspiring Traders on PlayStation 4 will receive free access to the Trader’s role with a free Butcher’s Table through October 14, simply meet Cripps and discuss the venture to get started. In addition, players who progress to Trader Role Rank 5 on PlayStation 4 will get the Trader’s Weapons Locker to manage their weapons inventory from Camp, plus the Trader Camp Theme for free through October 14. Visit the Wilderness Outfitters store from your campsite to pick up these unique upgrades.

In addition, PlayStation 4 players will enjoy early access through October 14 to the American Foxhound Camp Dog, a reliable camp companion available from the Wilderness Outfitters store. You can also get early access to Shoot The Sky Emote, as well as three new clothing items (the Carrigan Hat, Burnham Boots and Avery Gloves) all available from the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Catalogue. Or upgrade your Abilities with early access to three new Ability Cards: Gunslinger’s Choice, Strength in Numbers, and Ride Like The Wind.

On top of that, this month’s PlayStation Plus benefit is a free gift of RDO$250 for playing anytime between now and October 7, 2019. And for all PS4 players without a PlayStation Plus subscription, you’ll be able to play Red Dead Online through September 16.

Play Red Dead Online each week for even more new pursuits such as Legendary Bounties to pick up from Bounty Boards – each with their own sordid stories – and weekly maps with special collectible sets for Madam Nazar, plus all new bonuses, gifts and incentives coming in the weeks ahead.

    What is RDO

  • Played it and it was disappointing. Wash, rinse, and repeat. Small short mission try to play it off as role play and its not. Just unlocks for doing same rcycled mission. Bounty hunt, go get this, and that. Garbage. Nice try, but it took me 20 minutes to be bored of this. Game is dead

    • I think that may be the tiniest violin I’ve ever heard in this game.
      -.-
      Stay offline, dude… more for everyone else.
