Red Dead Online is about to get another update and it’s due to release next week. On 10 September players will get to try out some new Frontier Pursuits.
The Frontier Pursuits update for Red Dead Online was first announced back in August and is finally arriving in-game. Almost a year after the game first hit beta, these new additions to the game’s online experience will allow players to try out three new specialist roles as they make their way in the untamed lands of the wild west. When it loads, the Frontier Pursuits update will unlock Bounty Hunters, Traders, and Collectors some of which have been eagerly awaited by the game’s current population.
Unlocking a role in Red Dead Online allows a player to pursue a range of role-specific tasks, earn gold, XP, and tokens specific to that role The result is a brand new array of skills for each of the classes. A bounty hunter can, for example, duck for protection on horseback. A Trader can learn the ability to train their camp dog, warning of a camp raid by thieves. Each of the roles in this latest update unlocks a huge range of customization and progression for players that should provide tons of gameplay opportunity and ways to align the game to their play style.
In addition to the roles, this update brings a range of roe specific items from pots, to belts, and saddles that are more than just cosmetic. The game is also getting some function upgrades. Movement is intended to be quicker, controls will be more responsive, and defensive play will give characters greater resistance to damage.
