Blood Money DLC expansion, release date, crimes and opportunities, the Quick Draw club, new heists, weapons, clothing, and more.
Red Dead Online, for better or worse, has lived in the shadow of GTA Online since its release. It’s not a bad multiplayer experience at all, but GTA Online has a lot more content and seems to be getting a lot more attention from Rockstar Games. Fortunately, that could start to change after the Red Dead Online update arrives next week.
The price of blood is going to be a game-changer and could be Red Dead Online’s final redemption move. (No, that pun wasn’t intentional.)
When does Red Dead’s next online update drop?
Red Dead Online is receiving the Blood Money update starting July 13. After a long time without anything major being added to the game … It was time.
We don’t know the details of when the update is due out, but GTA Online typically updates around 1:00 am PST / 4:00 am EST / 9:00 am BST. With that in mind, we expect something similar from Rockstar Games when it comes to their experience in the Wild West.
So far, here’s what we know and a trailer to get you started:
It is whispered in the alleys of the capital of Lemoyne that Guido Martelli – right arm and deputy of the infamous Angelo Brontë – needs gunslingers of strong constitution. Martelli seeks to recover a precious commodity known as the Capital. Originally designed as a one-stop-shop for more sensitive business transactions, away from the watchful eyes of the tax authorities, it has since found its way into the hands of nearly every thug in the five states. Now Bronte and Martelli want it back – if you can find it and return it, Martelli will reward you by giving you access to more interesting criminal opportunities.
New crimes and opportunities (to earn money)
Red Dead Online’s Blood Money update will introduce a new series of Crimes it’s up to you to commit and probably the closest thing we’re going to get is freeform robberies and heists in Red Dead Online.
Rockstar Games is keeping quiet on the details, however. We don’t know exactly what to expect in the future, other than the following sentiment:
“… no initial investment is required.”
Essentially, it will be a free update and that’s what we’ve all been waiting for. There is also the following general description of the difference between Crimes and opportunities in the next Red Dead Online update.
“Crimes will range from robbery of cloak and dagger trainers to multi-stage robberies, including kidnappings, brutal debt collections, and so on.
” [Oppourtunities] are dispatched by Martelli in a ploy to suffocate a rising Senator Lemoyne that disrupts Brontë’s operations throughout the region. Each opportunity can reveal different approaches to the task at hand – listen to conversations nearby or search for important targets to uncover new paths to completion and weaken this politician’s position by bringing each of the Three Jewels of the West to Martelli. . The first of three opportunities is available July 13, while two more will be revealed in time. “
Quick draw club turns fans off
On top of all this, Rockstar Games is also introducing a Battle Pass system to Red Dead Online in the next update. It’s a bold move that could pay off, but it has also caught the attention of players given that Red Dead Online players feel the game has been overlooked by Rockstar in favor of GTA Online.
The Quick Draw Club is a series of four separate, rapid-fire passes, coming in back-to-back installments over the next several months. The purchase of each membership entitles you to rewards, bonuses and items to help you get started. live outside the law … “
Each pass will cost you 25 gold bars and you can collect them by completing the 25 ranks offered. If you buy the next four passes, you will also get the next Halloween PASs 2 for free.
It sounds like a good deal if you play enough, but will it actually pay off for Rockstar Games? This all seems to be the end of Red Dead Online if it doesn’t go well.
