Red Dead Redemption 2 Online updates are coming soon.
Rockstar is updating Red Dead Redemption 2 Online next week to include new weapons, showdown modes, free roam events and competitive fishing. There’s also new clothes and emotes coming too.
In an update detailed on Rockstar’s website they discuss the events and cosmetics.
The Fool’s Gold Free Roam Event is where players compete to control a ‘gaudy’ and protective suite of gold armour. You battle it out to take down the armour wearer earning points as you do and then earn points by making kills as the golden cowboy.
There’s also competitive fishing coming in the shape of Fishing Challenges. You get equipped with the right rods and bait for the job as well as a little protection from trigger happy fellow players, allowing you and friends to battle it out to catch the most fish to win.
There’s also three new Showdown Modes coming where players compete to capture and deliver bags, steal loot from each other and survive. These events are called Up in Smoke, Spoils of War and Plunder.
New guns are coming too with the high capacity Evans Repeater rifle and the double-barreled longarm Rare Shotgun. Both weapons will be available via the Wheeler & Rawson Catalogue and local Gunsmiths.
PS4 players get early access to Open Target races where you compete in open space to take out targets on horse back.
The update is schedules for February 26th 2019.
