Red Dead Online (ALL) Adds New Legendary Animals, Bounty Hunter & Trader Bonuses, New Clothing, Discounts, and More

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.

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.

Legendary Red Streak and Midnight Paw Coyotes

Gaze up at the moon and you might hear a distant chorus of howls – a Legendary Red Streak Coyote has been spotted around Pike's Basin, and is known for stalking the rocky cliffs and barren floor of the canyon.

Lately, the Legendary Midnight Paw Coyote has also been brazenly roaming the lands southeast of Strawberry. With unique yellow eyes and black fur, it is easily distinguished from the more common coyotes in the area.

Harriet is eager to learn more about these mysterious animals, so study the creatures and bring the samples back to her storefront to earn prompt payment and gain XP for the Naturalist Role. If you've been feeling the chills of the long nights out on the open plains, however, Gus will gladly aid you in turning these unique pelts into clothing.

GUS' TRAPPER STORE

These two Legendary Animals allow for the crafting of the Red Streak and Midnight Paw Coats, both of which should turn heads as you celebrate your triumphs at the Smithfield Saloon. The Babin Hat will also become available should you turn in the requisite materials.
