Today, with Frontier Pursuits, the world of Red Dead Online gets even deeper with the introduction of three new frontier activities. Each role represents a unique path filled with themed activities for any player looking to thrive on the frontier. Decide on the role of the bounty hunter and hunt down dangerous criminals, set up a company together with Cripps as a trader and turn your camp into a busy business or discover valuable and mysterious treasures as a collector. You can either focus on one role or tackle all three at once.

In addition to the special roles, today’s update also includes a wide range of new features and gameplay changes that improve the overall gaming experience:

  • New items, weapons, clothing items and horse-drawn carriages
  • Directional damage indicator to show the direction your character was hit from
  • Additional horse breeds
  • The ability to change the appearance of your character without resetting the game progress
  • Additional memory slots for your own outfits
  • Ability to name saved outfits
  • Role-specific Free Roam Events
  • Increased sale prices for looted jewelry
  • Improved movement and animation speeds for smoother battles (incl.
  • aiming, ___ing and reloading), faster looting and more
  • Additional balancing and improvements

See the title update information for more details.

There is a one-time entry fee of 15 gold bars for each role to purchase a Bounty Hunter License, Butcher Table, or Collector’s Bag. However, it is also possible to unlock each of these starting paraphernalia for free. Twitch Prime members who linked their Twitch and Rockstar Games Social Club accounts by September 8th will receive the Bounty Hunter license for free.

Collectors who have successfully discovered all 54 hidden playing cards in GTA Online will receive the collector’s bag for free up to and including October 14th. All prospective retailers with an active PlayStation Plus membership will receive the Slaughter Table for free up to and including October 14th.
