Red Dead Redemption 2's multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online, was launched in November in November as a beta – and Rockstar had said from the start that players should expect mistakes and other rarities. Players have actually discovered that the experience is less than optimal in some areas, one of which is the economy of the game. The players quickly found that baking beans is more valuable than gold rings, based on Red Dead Online's economy – and it's probably not right.
Rockstar has now recognized the issues of Red Dead Online's economy and says on Twitter that it works to bring the economy to a better place "to ensure all activities are appropriately rewarding and fun." The studio needs more time to work to balance to get it right, said it. It is also said that it does not plan to reset progress.
Outside the game's economy, Rockstar also plans to address some of the "persistent mistakes" that are related to the players being kicked out of sessions.
"The game has been developed so we can quickly make some adjustments like these," Rockstar said. The first updates for Red Dead Online are expected to start at the end of the week, with more updates coming next week.
You can send feedback about Red Dead Online directly to Rockstar here. There is no word on how long the game will remain in beta, but keep checking back with GameSpot for the last time.
Red Dead Online has new story assignments set before events in singleplayer campaign that can be played solo 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 to expect in terms of future updates to the game, although Grand Theft Auto's extensive range of free GTA Online extensions suggests that there is a lot in the store.
A future update for Red Dead Online will add the ability to buy gold in real money gold. Gold can also be earned by playing and it is used to buy certain weapons and other items, as well as a shortcut to reduce Honor level.
If you pre-ordered the game or purchased a special edition, you can access your bonus content.
