Red Dead Online Brings The Frontier Pursuits Update To Players
Looks like a solid update for fans of the game and nice to see so much content released after launch.
Today, the world of Red Dead Online deepens with the introduction of three new Frontier Pursuits, each presenting their own unique path filled with themed activities for players looking to thrive on the frontier. Choose to become a Bounty Hunter and hunt down dangerous criminals, partner with Cripps in an entrepreneurial venture to turn their camp into a bustling business as a Trader, unearth treasures both valuable and arcane as a Collector, focusing on one role at a time or all three at once.
In addition to Specialist Roles, today’s update also includes a wide range of new features and gameplay changes to enhance the overall experience:
New items, weapons, clothing and horse-drawn vehicles
Directional damage indicators to display where your character is hit from
Additional horse breeds
The ability to change your character’s appearance without resetting progress
Expanded custom outfit slots
The ability to name saved outfits
Role-specific Free Roam Events
Increased selling prices for looted Jewelry
Increased movement and animations speeds for more responsive combat (including aiming, cocking and reloading), faster looting and more
Additional game balancing and improvements

Each role has a standard startup cost of 15 Gold Bars to acquire a Bounty Hunter License, Butcher Table or Collector’s Bag. However, it’s also possible to unlock each startup item for free. Twitch Prime Members who linked their Twitch and Rockstar Games Social Club accounts by Sunday September 8th will receive the Bounty Hunter License free of charge, while those who missed that deadline should see the License appear free within 72 hours of linking their accounts. Collectors who successfully hunted down all 54 hidden playing cards in GTA Online can claim the Collector’s Bag for free through October 14th, while all aspiring Traders with an active PlayStation Plus subscription will receive the Butcher’s Table for free through October 14th.
Players who venture into Red Dead Online anytime between September 10th and November 18th, 2019 will be automatically enrolled in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club. This completely free membership provides new clothing and accessories, a special gun wrap, bonus cash, free care packages, an emote, a new graphic camp flag and more to all participants.
Those looking for even more perks and gear can opt for The Outlaw Pass which, for 35 Gold Bars, offers more rewards over time such as exclusive clothing, weapons stylings, campsite themes, bonus cash, Gold gifts up to 35 Gold Bars and much more. You can find more information about the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club and The Outlaw Pass here.
In addition to the free Butcher’s Table to get started as a Trader, PlayStation 4 players will also receive the Trader Camp Theme and Weapons Locker both unlocked at Trader Role Rank 5 and free of charge from the Wilderness Outfitters store through October 14th. PlayStation 4 players will also enjoy early access to the American Foxhound Camp Dog, Shoot The Sky Emote, three new Ability Cards (Gunslinger’s Choice, Strength in Numbers and Ride Like The Wind) as well as three new clothing items (the Carrigan Hat, Burnham Boots and Avery Gloves) through October 14th. On top of that, this month’s PlayStation Plus benefit is a free gift of RDO$250 for playing anytime between now and October 7th, 2019.
All Ultimate Edition players will see the RDO$ price waived for two new steeds that are unlocked in the Bounty Hunter’s progression: the sturdy Sorrel Breton and handsome Red Roan Breton.
