Red Dead Online (ALL) Adds Legendary Bears, Outlaw Pass Bonus, Rewards, 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.

Two highly dangerous types of bear stalk the lands this week, risky propositions forstudy by only the most courageous of Red Dead Online’s Naturalists and hunters. The Legendary Owiza Bear patrols the banks of the Dakota River, while the Legendary Ridgeback Spirit Bear has been scaring riders out by Little Creek River. Meanwhile, the latest Vitalism Studies Pamphlet from Harriet will have Naturalists hopping like a Rabbit, and a variety of new discounts also await players this week.

Key details from today’s update include:

  • New Garment Sets and Rewards at Gus’ Store: Bringing Gus the pelts from the Legendary Owiza Bear or the Legendary Ridgeback Spirit Bear will unlock the Owiza and Ridgeback Spirit Garment Sets for purchase, and crafting either will reward players with a free Coat of their choice
  • A free Treasure Map will be awarded to all Outlaw Pass owners this week
  • New Discounts: 40% off all Vests, Shirts, and the Advanced Camera
  • New Prime Gaming Benefits: Rewards for a free Bar Theme and Outfit, Accessory or Emote, plus 5,000 Outlaw Pass XP and 10X each of Gin, Brandy, Rum, Baked Beans and Jolly Jack’s
  • Ongoing Prime Gaming Benefits: A free Katata Coat, 6,000 Naturalist XP, a free Wilderness Camp, and 5 free Legendary Animal Pheromones
  • An offer for 50% off an Established or higher Naturalist Role Item will be given to players that complete an act of Rabbit animal control anytime this week
  • And two new Legendary Animals: The Owiza and Ridgeback Spirit Bears are now available to pursue and were last seen around the Dakota River and the Little Creek River, respectively, while a Reward for a free hat up to Rank 15 awaits players that skin or sample either
  • As well as the new Rabbit Vitalism Studies Pamphlet, now available to Naturalists that visit Harriet’s shop

Warning: Wild Legendary Bears Seen Roaming the Riversides

If you are the type to wander the riverside in search of wild encounters, take heed. The Legendary Owiza Bear has been spotted wandering alone near the Dakota River. Its lonely existence means it is easily aggravated and prefers to hunt at night, particularly under heavy rainfall.

Meanwhile, the Legendary Ridgeback Spirit Bear, most notable for a distinctive red stripe down its back, prefers hunting during the day and is usually seen near Little Creek River. Both are aggressive and should only be approached with the utmost caution by experienced hunters and naturalists alike.

Hunt either of the Legendary Bears and sample or skin them this week to receive a Reward for a free Hat up to Rank 15.

Gus’ Trapper Store

Bring your Legendary Bear Pelts to Gus Macmillan to sell them for a tidy profit. Doing so will unlock the Owiza and Ridgeback Spirit Garment Sets for purchase. Craft either of these Legendary Coats to receive a Reward for a free Coat of your choice from the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Catalogue.

Vitalism Studies

Swing by Harriet’s shop this week to pick up the Rabbit Vitalism Studies Pamphlet, then harvest Harrietum Officinalis herbs to complete your transformation into a wildly fast critter. Players who complete an act of Rabbit animal control anytime this week will receive an offer for 50% off an Established or higher Naturalist Role Item.

Bonuses and Benefits

All Outlaw Pass holders will receive a free Treasure Map to help them pad their coffers.

Players would be wise to utilize this week’s 40% discounts on all Vests and Shirts, as well as the Advanced Camera.

Prime Gaming

Red Dead Online players who connect their Rockstar Games Social Club account to Prime Gaming will receive Rewards for:

  • 5 Free Legendary Animal Pheromones
  • 6,000 Naturalist XP
  • A free Wilderness Camp
  • A free Katata Coat crafted from the Legendary Elk hide
