Now Playing: Red Dead Redemption 2 Online Gets Free Gift And Price Fixes - GS News Update

Now that Red Dead Redemption 2's online mode beta has been live for over a week, Rockstar is beginning to implement changes based on player feedback. The goal of the changes, Rockstar says, is to create "a more balanced, fun, and rewarding overall experience." As a thank you to everyone who has played the Red Dead Online beta, Rockstar is offering free in-game money and gold bars.

Anyone who played the beta between when it first started and midnight on December 6 will receive a gift of RDO$250 and 15 gold bars to spend on anything they'd like. These items will be rolling out to all eligible players by December 14.

Much of the criticism of Red Dead Online has been based on the pricing of in-game weapons and other items. To that effect, Rockstar says it will increase the cash and gold payments for various activities as well as decrease the prices of many weapons. If you already purchased a weapon that's getting a price cut, the difference will automatically be refunded to your balance by December 10. You'll also receive an alert message to that effect.

The values of various items and animal parts will be rebalanced soon, and Rockstar is working on bug fixes that should be addressed in the coming weeks. If you have feedback about the Red Dead Online beta, you can submit it here.

As for our experience with the game so far, we loved the campaign but have found the online experience to be much more hit or miss.

Gamespot, you already said all this in your other article right below this one. And it's hardly "Right Now" if you have to wait until the 14th to have it delivered.

Stupid clickbait like this will kill gaming "journalism" eventually the same way it's killing most other journalism.

This is a start, good on Rockstar. Still have hope that this could be something good.

One of the big gripes is not greeting people in the game, your character has no voice. During mission that's fine, but where's the "Whooa, it's okay girl", when your horse is agitated.
