Rockstar assured players that Red Dead Online will be updated and supported for a very long time. Similarly to GTA Online, there are many updates and patches waiting for us. After the first week, RDO received the following updates and changes:
- More cash and gold for activities, including free roam mode, showdown series and many more.
- Lower prices for most weapons at gunsmiths and in the Wheeler, Rawson& Co catalogs. Players who bought the weapons earlier will get a refund of the difference in price - wait for a notification the next time you log in to Red Dead Online Beta. Refunds may take up until December 10th.
- Changed selling values for pelt, furs, fishes as well as horse reviver and pamphlets
- A gift which includes $250 and 15 gold bars.
In conclusion, the first patch focuses on balancing the game's economy. Fishing and hunting are less profitable so players can focus on other activities in the game. It's now more beneficial to take part in showdown series or complete the story mission.
