As already speculated, this month Red Dead Online will receive a big patch, with some new fetures and more!
The update to the Red Dead Online Beta will be released on February 26th. Since Rockstar speaks of a big update, we assume that it is not just a server patch. By all accounts, Red Dead Redemption 2 patch 1.06 will be released no later than February 26th
What’s new? For a couple of weeks, the Red Dead Online team has already announced that they want to improve the multiplayer experience. Now there are also the details.
When will the February update come? On February 26, a series of updates and features will be released to enhance the beta of Red Dead Online.
What's in the updates? It's about lawmakers and bounty changes, minimap player marks, weapon balance, and daily quests.
Bounty Hunters & Law Balancing
At the same time, players who have racked up high bounties will have a chance to be beset by NPC Bounty Hunters who will attempt to kill them and collect their reward.
Criminal behavior will have bounty values and honor consequences that scale based on the severity of the crime. For example, killing another player can incur a higher bounty, while assaulting townsfolk or animal cruelty could give you a lesser bounty if the crime is reported, while lower level crimes like looting and ransacking will only decrease your honor.
If your bounty exceeds a certain threshold and Bounty Hunters take notice, you will be wanted dead and alerted to their pursuit. The higher your bounty, the greater your value and the more difficult the pursuit becomes for you and your Posse.
The Daily Quests will soon provide more variety. With these challenges, you earn your XP and gold nuggets.
What kind of tasks are these? As an example, Rockstar Games speaks of:
- Collecting herbs
- Sale of objects at dealers
- Hunting and skinning of animals
- Clearing out gang hiding
- Victories in feuds
