Red Dead Online The launch has been rocky. While there is plenty of fun and shootin, they have weak rewards for playing frustrated many players. In a blog post today, Rockstar announced new changes – and free rewards – that would make it easier to shave the cash and make Dutch happy.
Players can acquire two currencies, money and gold pieces, but get enough hands loot to buy new equipment was a hassle. Today, Rockstar announced that the following changes to the game economy:
Increases cash and gold payments across a number of different activities, including Free Roam Missions, Free Roam Events, Reports of A Land of Opportunities Missions, Showdown Series modes and more.
Reduce the prices of most weapons in Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalog and Gunsmiths. For players who have already purchased weapons at previous prices, we automatically record the difference in player balance from today – please look for a warning message the next time you log in to Red Dead Online Beta to notify you of this change, refunds may raise until December 10 to reach all players.
Balance the values for selected leather, leather and fish as well as hedge experiences and brochures.
Players have checked for tweaks since launch, when it becomes clear that it would take a long time to unlock new items. Playing through free roaming events or games in the game’s competitive Showdown playlist simply did not provide enough money for the time spent. It did not help the value of some things was absurd. You can sell a jar of beans for more profit than if you sold a gold ring. Weapons and special equipment were incredibly expensive. A Mauser Pistol costs $ 1000 ingame dollars, a sum that our writer Zack Zwiezen could not reach within almost 15 hours of playing time. Assure your horse, who takes it back immediately if another player kills it, costs five gold bars. Gold bars are the game’s prize currency that players can earn if they find 100 gold pieces. It can not be bought with real money yet. A Redditor estimated that it would take an average of eight hours to earn a single gold bar.
Rockstar changes come after a previous announcement on Monday that they would adjust both the game’s economy and implement bug fixes. In addition to increasing rewards and lowering prices, they give $ 250 in the game and 15 gold bars to all players who play the game through midnight PST today. That should be enough to help players get lost time in multiplayer playlists.
“We want to thank the Red Dead Group for playing and sending us lots of valuable feedback during the first full week of Red Dead Online Beta’s availability,” Rockstar blog post said. “This feedback is crucial to helping shape the game as we move forward.”
