Red Dead Redemption 2 update coming
Three new characters are coming with the latest rollout
This past May, Rockstar Games announced that an upgrade to its popular Red Dead Redemption 2 online video game was coming. While the exact date of the patch has not yet been released, Rockstar has provided some details about what’s coming and asserts that core element improvements, new experiences and new missions are on their way. In addition, three new characters are going to be introduced to the game.
Rockstar stated in a recent blog post about the patch, “With the foundation of Red Dead Online now established, future updates will offer new ways to fully inhabit your character as you progress in multiple roles and carve out your own place on the frontier.
“Starting this summer, players will be able to take on the first three of a series of new roles: track down wanted criminals as a bounty hunter; search the world for treasure, and other exotic items to sell as a collector; or build a business at camp as a trader and more.”
Rockstar is also offering some bonuses to certain gamers. Those who want to take advantage of the Twitch Prime bonuses have to link their Twitch Prime accounts to Red Dead’s Social Club before this Friday in order to receive $300 in Red Dead currency. Anyone who links after the deadline can still take advantage of special deals, including a Superior Ammo Bundle.
The games developer adds, “Riders on the frontier should look good doing it. The Wheeler, Rawson And Co. Catalogue has a selection of new items that are perfect for gunslingers looking to impress on the frontier. Shield your scalp with the stylishly wide brim of the Descoteaux Hat, don some hardwearing hide from south of the border with the Alvarado Chaps and strap a pair of elegant Gerden Morrow Spurs to your boots to complete the ensemble. All three items are permanent additions to the catalogue, starting this week.”
