Red Dead Online Updates Coming as Early as This Week, Rockstar Wants to Make it 'Appropriately Rewarding'

10 Things Red Dead Online Doesn't Tell You

While there are likely many updates in the pipeline, Rockstar is honing in on the economy for this first major update.

Today, Rockstar Games has put out a statement via Twitter that addresses upcoming patches for Red Dead Online that will focus on bugs and balancing the in-game economy. Red Dead Online was met with a lot of enthusiasm, and players are still exploring everything it has to offer.

How are you finding Red Dead Online? A can of baked beans costs $1.50, while selling a gold wedding ring will only net you $1.15.

Anyone helping Rockstar figure out its online take on the Wild West need not worry they're wasting their time. "You get in between 0.02 and 0.04 (0.02 gold bars = 2 nuggets) from series (deathmatch, races, etc.) which take 10 mins each or less", the Reddit user said.

The most promising part of the statement is the studio's claim that developers are working to ensure all activities are "appropriately rewarding and fun". In turn, this can make saving your money for the stuff that you really want to buy seem like a grind, and, of course, a stingy economy helps push microtransactions. One of the concerns raised by players was that there could be the chance of progress and stats being reset since Red Dead Online is now only in a beta version and hasn't yet fully released, but Rockstar Games told people not to be concerned with that while adding that more updates are on the way. As for the next update, we should expect it by the end of the week.
