Red Dead Online (ALL) Adds New Clothing, PS4 Exclusives On Xbox One And More

by Rainier on June 25, 2019 @ 5:39 p.m. PDT

Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America's unforgiving heartland, featuring a vast and atmospheric world that will also provide the foundation for a brand-new online multiplayer experience.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America at the dawn of the modern age.

America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed.

After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.

Built from the ground up for the latest hardware, Red Dead Online blends the classic multiplayer of the original Red Dead Redemption with the best of everything we have learned since then about creating deep multiplayer experiences. The result is something completely new and fun, and an experience that will continue to expand and evolve over time as we gain valuable feedback from our community in the Beta period.

Now that everyone has had a chance over the past month to experience the story of Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang in Red Dead Redemption 2, it is time to begin the beta period for Red Dead Online.

Built from the ground up for the latest hardware, Red Dead Online blends the classic multiplayer of the original Red Dead Redemption with the best of everything we have learned since then about creating deep multiplayer experiences. The result is something completely new and fun, and an experience that will continue to expand and evolve over time.

With the gameplay of Red Dead Redemption 2 as its foundation, Red Dead Online transforms the vast and deeply detailed landscapes, cities, towns and habitats of Red Dead Redemption 2 into a new, living online world ready to be shared by multiple players. Create and customize your character, tailor your abilities to suit your play style and head out into a new frontier full of things to experience.

Explore the world solo or with friends. Form or join a Posse to ride with up to seven players; gather around the fire at your Camp; head out hunting or fishing; visit bustling towns; battle enemy gangs and attack their hideouts; hunt for treasure; take on missions and interact with familiar characters from across the five states; or fight against other outlaws in both spontaneous skirmishes and pitched set-piece battles; compete with other players or whole Posses in open world challenges and much more.

Starting today, all Red Dead Online players can jump into the Last Stand and Make It Count: Ancient Tomahawk Showdown Modes, both previously included in PlayStation 4 Early Access content. Additional Early Access Content such as the Ancient Tomahawk, Perlino Andalusian Horse, clothing and emotes are also now available to all players.

Please see below for additional details, including info on new clothing, Ability Card XP bonuses, Item discounts, a requested reset feature for character appearances and more.

Ancient Tomahawk, Last Stand & More Now Available On Xbox One

The brutal Ancient Tomahawk arrives on Xbox One today alongside the tense action of the Make It Count: Ancient Tomahawk Showdown Mode. Previously PlayStation 4 Early Access content, you can grab the Ancient Tomahawk from any of the five Fence locations (Saint Denis, Rhodes, Emerald Ranch, Van Horn or Thieves Landing) and play matches of Make it Count: Ancient Tomahawk as part of the Elimination Series.

More new additions of previously Early Access content now available for Xbox One players include the Perlino Andalusian Horse, Belanger Saddle, Finley Jacket, Stenger Studded Spurs and Caldwell Hat, as well as two new Emotes - "Boast" and "Hey, You." Additionally, the climactic, free-for-all carnage of Last Stand makes its way to Xbox One.
