Red Dead Online (ALL) Adds Bonuses on Free Roam/Events, Free Fast Travel/Barber Services, 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.

Red Dead Online players looking to explore the outer edges of the five states can do so with free Fast Travel this week, taking them across a frontier packed with Free Roam Missions and Free Roam Events, all delivering Double XP.

Find Adventure on the Fringes of the Frontier

The frontier is a cold, unloving place, but there is solace to be found in the kindness and charity of those we find on the roadsides and rest stops of the frontier. Completing any Free Roam Mission — denoted on your map by an orange icon — over the course of the next week will earn you twice the usual XP.

Taking part in any Free Roam Event will also reward you with double XP through April 19th. Keep an eye out for invites at the top left of your screen to take part in an assortment of competitive and co-operative challenges, including King of the Castle, Fool’s Gold, Cold Dead Hands, and more.

40% Bonus RDO$/XP Payouts in Free Roam Missions for Posses

If you’re the type to roll up with a crew of like-minded brigands in tow, you’ll be pleased to learn that completing Free Roam Missions with the help of a Posse will receive an additional 40% RDO$ and XP bonus on top of the usual 10% Posse bonus.

Gain Ranks, Earn Prizes

Persistence and determination are their own rewards, but a little extra motivation never hurt. Players who rank up between now and April 19th will:

  • Gain one Rank and get the Bluewater Marsh Treasure Map
  • Gain three Ranks and get the North Ridgewood Treasure Map and a free Ability Card
  • Gain six Ranks and get the lake Isabella Treasure Map, two free Ability Cards, and RDO$150
