What’s the deal with Red Dead Redemption 2’s microtransactions?

Firstly, Red Dead Online will be getting continuous additions and updates, even whilst in beta.

If you're having issues with the game in its Beta state, we can't communicate how important and helpful it is to actually use that form and let Rockstar know your issues.

"Both Red Dead Redemption 2 and its multiplayer experience, Red Dead Online, will come with exciting PlayStation 4 benefits right from launch", the message from Sony PlayStation explains.

A Red Dead Online Posse is especially important for players who already have friends they wish to roam around with.

Rockstar has implemented an interesting system to help counteract player griefing in Red Dead Online.


Although microtransactions aren't live just yet, Rockstar has confirmed that players will be able to buy gold bars at the in-game store.

In other words, there is no option to create your own private lobby. Capture a territory to start racking up points: the team with most points wins - or you can win outright by capturing every territory.

The idea is to talk through your problems, but I have yet to experience that working out in Red Dead Online.

In simple terms, Your horse never permanently dies (you will not permanently lose it) in Red Dead Online, and you don't need a horse insurance as your horse will respawn without it. Then it's the turn of those who played it between 26 October and 29 October.

Wednesday, November 28 - All Red Dead Redemption 2: Ultimate Edition owners. Those played any version of the game on launch day will gain access to the beta today, meanwhile, those who played within the first three days of the game's launch will get access on Thursday.


Saturday, December 1 - All players who own Red Dead Redemption 2.

Demonstrate your personal specialty in this free-for-all or team-based match: the trickier the weapon you use to land the killing blow, the more points you get.

Rockstar referenced the possibility in a recent news post on its official website, in which the developer also provided a bit more information on everything included in the beta and gave us an indication as to how long the online portion of the game will remain in the trial phase.

Red Dead Online is Red Dead Redemption 2's multiplayer component and drops players into the open world of the wild west.
