Now that Red Dead Online is out of beta gave it a go.  Didn’t try all of what they add yet.  The few things I did look at are good.  First tired out the Defensive option.  This is were you can play the game at you own pace with out having to deal with the PvP stuff.  Other players can’t kill you easily.  And if they do they are penalties via the Hostility system.  No one bother with me.  Mostly think that was because were I was not there weren’t many people around.  With have to try this again in more populated area.   Next bought the LeMat Revolver.  This revolver has an alt firing mode.  Which shoots a shotgun shell.  Pretty cool.  After that my brother and I gave poker a try.  Well we tired to.  We ended up have to play against each other because they will not let you play if you are using party chat.  Guess this is a way to prevent people from cheating.  After that tried out some of the daily challenges.  Some are easier than others.  It is a good way to get XP.  Each one completed gives you 200xp.  If you do them all you get an extra bonus.  Did have some fun.  Will have give the story missions a try next.

Red_Dead_OnlineSome big news to share about Red Dead Online.  Yesterday (May 14, 2019) they announced the game is no longer in beta and have a big update.  Along with that they had a ton of fix for bugs.  As well a lots of new stuff.  The will be more coop story missions, free roam missions, dynamic events and poker.  There is more of course like clothes and weapons.  The biggest thing for me that what they are calling Playing Styles in now in the game. The two modes are Offensive and Defensive.  Offensive is what the game is at default.  Were everything goes  The Defensive is were you can play the game at you own pace with out having to deal with the PvP stuff.  So if you like hunting, fishing and exploring.  Griefers will have a hard time trying to kill you.  If some one does attack you they will, “receive hefty penalties via the Hostility system”.  However if you start at fight you are pulled out of defensive mode and get penalties.  There is more to all this big update.  You can read all the details > here.  Has been awhile since I played some Red Dead Online.  Need to out this defensive mode.  They put out a new trailer to go along with this.  Which you can see > here or below.
