Rockstar Games is working very hard to make sure that Red Dead Online is every bit as good as their other hit title GTA Online. And though still in beta, the game gets updates, and these updates bring more than just regular balance changes, they also bring with it a bunch of new things that’ll help make the game even more robust. The next update is scheduled for next week, and Rockstar is unveiling even more details about it.
First up, there’s going to be a new challenge mode:
“Competitive Challenges gets a fresh catch with Fishing Challenges. Fishing Challenges are broken out by type, opt in to the challenge and you’ll receive all the equipment necessary to compete including the rod as well lures and bait specific to the challenge type, whether it’s crickets for a river challenge, crayfish for the swamp or worms for lakes. Then head to an appropriate body of water to take part – also, you’ll be made safe from the nuisance of trigger-happy outlaws while you are taking the challenge. Catch the highest weight total of fish to win.”
If you were hoping for something more, such as having more customizations for your characters, they’re going to be adding that too:
“A wide range of new clothing to further customize your character – from the snake adorned Diamondback Hat to the fur trimmed Rutledge Vest – is also on the way with new Outfits, Jackets, Boots, Coats, Gloves, Hats, Vests and more. In addition to all the clothing that will be available for purchase at your leisure, keep an eye on the shops and the Catalogue for unique special items that will come and go. A variety of new Emotes is also on the way – featuring everything from greets to reactions and taunts.”
This, and more, will arrive when the update launches on February 26th.
