On July 13, Red Dead Online will receive a significant update called Blood Money. It features a slew of new objectives, as well as the typical Rockstar slew of prizes and bonuses spread over the game’s different aspects, and comes with the following gorgeous trailer set to the music ‘Letter from Bluewater Man,’ sung by Christone ‘Kingfish’ Ingram. Yes, Rockstar’s production values and song selections continue to be the finest in the industry.
According to the trailer, the new task chain is very extensive, and it revolves around working with the characters Guido Martelli and Angelo Bronte. It brings a new form of job to Red Dead Online, which is simply referred to as Crimes. “Crimes will vary from cloak-and-dagger coach holdups to multi-stage robberies — including kidnapping, violent debt collection, and other heinous acts.”
Crimes can be taken on as a lone gun or as a posse, and while doing so, you’ll be gathering a new resource, Capitale, which you’ll need to return to Martelli and unlock an ‘Opportunity.’ This stealing lark is really well-organized. The Opportunities are significant missions about taking on a Senator Lemoyne, and the first one comes with an upgrade, with two more on the way.
In addition, four new sorts of passes are arriving under the umbrella of the Quick Draw Club, each filled with cosmetic prizes, the first of which is Dutch’s outfit, and each of which costs 25 gold bars but rewards the same if completed.
“In response to your feedback,” Rockstar says, “the Skill and Satchel Pamphlets previously provided via the Outlaw Pass—such as enabling the ability to Fast Travel from a Wilderness Camp—will be placed on general sale at the Fence.”
Finally, the update adds NVIDIA DLSS support to Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online for those who have GeForce RTX graphics cards, which should improve frame rates.
