Red Dead Online Adds Bounty Hunter Bonuses, Holiday Cheer Coming to the Frontier, Seasonal Gifts 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.

Red Dead Online is getting into the holiday spirit with a flurry of seasonal events and gifts in the weeks ahead, including snow sweeping the five states and featuring carolers on the streets of Saint Denis, festive decorations across Camps and Moonshine Shacks, plus seasonal Call to Arms locations, a free themed Community Outfit, and more.

Additionally, Bounty Hunters have even more reasons to celebrate, with bonus rewards for bringing in Legendary, Infamous, and Player Bounties.

Bounty Hunter Bonuses, Plus Holiday Cheer Coming to Red Dead Online

Soon the hills and valleys of the five states will be covered in snow — first arriving in a light fall mid-month, and then later a heavy flurry. Bounty Hunters out braving the cold to enforce justice are being rewarded, while the chill also brings with it the warmth of holiday spirit.

Both Legendary and Infamous Bounty Missions are paying out 3X RDO$, XP, and Gold, dead or alive. Dogged Bounty Hunters who complete 3 different Legendary Bounties during any week in December will also receive a red colorway of the Folwell Hat.

New players can begin their law enforcement career by visiting the Sheriff’s Office in Rhodes and purchasing the Bounty Hunter License directly from him, or from any Bounty Board afterwards. Intrepid Bounty Hunters can then claim 10 Gold Bars off the Prestigious Bounty Hunter License to show their dedication to wrangling those disturbing the peace.

3X Character and Role XP on Player Bounties

Help balance the scales of justice and keep the frontier a safer place during the holiday season by completing Player Bounties to earn 3X Character and Role XP through January 2. Bring in any Player Bounty dead or alive to get a Reward for a free Treasure Map leading to a haul near Burned Town.

2X RDO$ and XP on The Covington Emerald Blood Money Opportunity

The Covington Emerald strikes envy deep into the hearts of all who behold it — that’s why Senator Ricard has made it the centerpiece of his showcase at the States’ Fair in Sacramento, and why outlaws must figure out how to sneak it out from under the nose of the Saint Denis authorities. Successfully pilfering the green gem will net you Double Rewards now through January 2.


Holiday Cheer in Red Dead Online

When snow arrives to Red Dead Online, a warming holiday cheer is also expected, rivaling the ferocity of inclement weather. Saint Denis will be adorned with a spectacle of decorations and lights, while carolers promenade the streets. Christmas Trees are being displayed by local Traders, and Gunsmiths keenly advertise the Krampus Shotgun, returning to local shelves with no Rank lock between December 13 – January 2.

3X RDO$ and XP on Call to Arms

Some things should be sacred: a holiday ceasefire sounds safe and sound, but the mid-December snow brings a tide of miscreants with it. Beginning December 15, A Merry Call to Arms brings evil to settlements and holdouts decorated with gingerbread, candy canes, and other ornaments.

Be wary of blizzards, packs of wolves, and the dreaded Christmas Train bearing down on your allies with automatic weaponry. Survive to the end or get gunned down in a blaze of glory, either outcome earns 3X RDO$ and XP through January 2.

Seasonal Gifts and Items

As a holiday gift, all players who log in to play Red Dead Online between December 13 and December 26 will receive the Winter variant of the Evans Repeater.
