We posted that Rockstar Games has acknowledged that the in-game economy in Red Dead Online needs to be tweaked to be a bit more giving just a few days ago, and now, the studio has follow through with that promise!
Starting today, Rockstar is adjusting the Red Dead Online weapon prices, and the mission payouts!
- Increasing the cash and gold payments across a number of different activities including Free Roam Missions, Free Roam Events, replays of A Land of Opportunities Missions, Showdown Series modes and more.
- Reducing the prices of most weapons in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue and Gunsmiths. For players that have already purchased weapons at the previous prices, we will automatically deposit the difference to player balances starting today – please look for an alert message the next time you log in to the Red Dead Online Beta to notify you of this change, refunds may take up until Monday, December 10th to reach all eligible players.
- Balancing the values of select pelts, skins and fish as well as horse reviver and pamphlets.
Rockstar also states that they are continuing to improve and balance Red Dead Online, and that the studio is working on fixes for some persistent bugs which is scheduled to hit everyone next week.
Also of note, as a thank you to players, Rockstar is awarding everyone that joined in to play the Red Dead Online beta at any point through midnight PST today with RDO $250, and 15 gold bars! The gifts should be arriving today, and will be delivered to all eligible players no later than Friday, December 14.
