Red Dead Online Microtransactions Now Live, Here’s What You can Buy

Rockstar has now brought microtransactions to Red Dead Redemption 2 online allowing you to buy gold with real money along with some free gold.

Rockstar is busy bringing changes to Red Dead Online. The latest addition to the Red Dead Online is the in-game microtransactions. Microtransactions are now live with the latest update that has just arrived for Red Dead Redemption 2 and Online. The new Red Dead Redemption 2 update also fixes many bugs and brings stability to the game.

Rockstar announced this opening of Red Dead Online’s in-game store through a blog post. You can now finally purchase the in-game gold with real money if you find the in-game economy of Red Dead Online not fair. Players have previously complained about the in-game payouts being very low.

You can now purchase gold in different bundles starting from 25 bars ($10) to the most expensive one which brings 350 bars for $100.

You can check out the prices for each gold bar bundle in Red Dead Online below.

  • 25 gold bars – $10 US
  • 55 gold bars – $20 US
  • 150 gold bars – $50 US
  • 245 gold bars – $75 US
  • 350 gold bars – $100 US

Rockstar now has a special one time offer going on which allows you to get 25 gold bars for just $5. That’s not all, Rockstar is also giving away some free gold to the players of Red Dead Online. Red Dead Online beta players can now get free 15 gold bars. If you haven’t played the game already then you should before Thursday, December 20 to be eligible for free 15 gold bars in Red Dead Online.

Also, don’t panic if you haven’t received your free 15 gold bars in Red Dead Online yet as Rockstar promises that they will be delivered to everyone by December 24.

Other than that, Rockstar is also giving away some in-game cash to the special and Ultimate Edition owners of the game. These freebies come as a thank you by Rockstar.

As an added thank you to players who pre-ordered Red Dead Redemption 2, and those who purchased either the Special or Ultimate Edition, we are awarding additional RDO$ gifts. These will be active starting Friday, December 21st and are automatically added to your character’s balance the next time you play Red Dead Online during the Beta and permanently afterwards:

Free in-game RDO$ is as follows.

  • Special Edition Owners will get RDO$100
  • Ultimate Edition Owners will get RDO$1,000
  • Everyone who pre-ordered get RDO$100 (in addition to Ultimate and Special Edition gifts)

Rockstar then promised at the end that they will continue to listen to the community feedback to bring further changes to Red Dead Redemption 2 online. The team mentioned that new anti-griefing measures and gameplay balance changes are planned for 2019.

They are now working on to bring new modes, gameplay features and new Red Dead Online gameplay content updates. Rockstar is very excited to discuss it all in the new year.

In other news, players have found a very interesting glitch which hints us that Red Dead Redemption remake could come as a DLC in the future.

It’s a voice glitch which makes John Marston sound like Jack Marston. We got to play as Jack Marston last time in the epilogue of Red Dead Redemption which is why we think that Red Dead Redemption remake could be coming soon.
