Red Dead Online New Update Soon

Over the months since Red Dead Online was out.  They have been fix and adding stuff all the time.  They have talked about a big new update coming soon a few times.  They have talked about it again in a new blog post > here.  The thing that stands out for me is the they are adding “specialist roles”.  There will be three to start, Bounty Hunter, Trader and Collector.

Bounty Hunter for a life of constant action on both sides of the law. A licensed Bounty Hunter can track down targets and capture – or kill, depending on how honorable you are in your pursuits. Occasionally, a nearby player with a high enough bounty can also be a designated target. Progression will unlock special items like a reinforced lasso for extra-tough targets, as well as intricate gun-spinning tricks and advanced tracking skills like the ability to use Eagle-Eye while sprinting, galloping on horseback and many other special skills, items and upgrades.

Trader is perfect for burgeoning capitalists as you establish and develop a business from your Camp. Thanks to your trusty companion Cripps’ knowledge of furs, skins and butchery, you’ll be able to take on new opportunities to collect materials and produce valuable goods to sell. Increasing your skill as a Trader unlocks the ability to upgrade your Camp with a Weapons Locker, Stew Pot and even allow any canine companion to warn of impending attacks on the camp. As your business expands, you can gain new skills, improve your satchel or add new assets to your business like hunting wagons to bring in bigger hauls and much more.

Collector loves to explore the world for rare and valuable items. Look for a mystic travelling saleswoman in the wild to  get started down the Collector’s path, searching for lost jewelry, rare arrowheads and other treasures to sell as individual pieces or highly valuable sets. As you progress, you will gain access to tools that help your search including Refined Binoculars, a Horse Lantern and even a Metal Detector, as well as gaining additional skills to help you seek and discover the world’s greatest rarities.

There will be more with the update as well.  Just read the link above.  Think this roles are a very cool idea.  With the Trader like the idea of setting up a business in your camp.  But think I will try the Collector out first.  Do like exploring the Red Dead map.  There are still many spots I haven’t been to yet.  Will be back with another post when this update is out.
