Red Dead Online New Update Blood Money Announced

Trailer drops on July 7.


Red Dead Online will get a new summer update titled Blood Money on July 13, with a first trailer dropping on July 7. [The trailer is now available, along with much more detail about the mission types and rewards in Blood Money, which is out now.]

Not much is known about Blood Money currently, but Rockstar hinted at what the overall content of summer updates will look like in a May Red Dead Online dispatch.

"Down in Saint Denis, Angelo Bronte's trusted lieutenant, Guido Martelli is working to create his own criminal network, so whether it's intimidation, unsavory crimes, or larger, high-stakes robberies--riders best be willing to do whatever it takes to earn their blood money," Rockstar said.

Ahead of Blood Money's release, Rockstar also added new weekly bonuses.
