Before Red Dead Online released in November, developer Rockstar Games said that it could not guarantee that players' progress and statistics would not be deleted after beta was terminated. The good news today is that Rockstar has confirmed that, at least right now, there are no plans to reset anything.
In November, Rockstar was warned that it would have to reset player scores and statistics in Red Dead Redemption 2's multiplayer mode. The developer pointed out that it is not uncommon for large beta to reset rank and player statistics before full release. As an example, progress in the annual Call of Duty betas is deleted before launch. So it's especially good news to hear now that Rockstar does not intend to reset statistics or ranking for Red Dead Online after beta.
As Rockstar said earlier this week, it hopes to release a new Red Dead Online update this week to cope with overall stability and the issues with the game's financial balance.
Red Dead Online, which is the free multiplayer mode for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, has new stories occupied before the events of singleplayer campaign that can be played alone or with others. It also has a number of collaborative and PvP modes, including Red Dead's own combat royale mode.
Rockstar says to expect "many more updates to Red Dead Online beta in the coming weeks and months." It has not shared much about what can be expected in terms of future updates to the game, although Grand Theft Auto V wants many and significant updates over time.
Microtransactions arrive at Red Dead Online in the future, and players will be able to buy the gold gold in the game with real money. Gold can also earn by playing and it is used to buy certain weapons and other items, as well as a shortcut to lower the Honor level.
