I think I spoke to soon in last post about Rock* clowning the clowns. This is great news. 

Is the Outlaw Pass worth getting? 

😄

....nah, I don't think anyone could have really predicted this.  There's even more to come through the year apparently so maybe there's hope RDO will get further attention with the next gen consoles in the way of enhancements, expansions, etc. like they are talking about with GTAO.

Interesting you mentioned that. There is an opinion video somewhere on You Tube stating that part of the reason that there are so many problems with Red Dead Online is that it is simply not meant for the current generation of hardware and it won't get better until next gen. Interesting to think about.

Well, I think any of the issues related to populations of animals, NPCs, etc. and related frame rate drops in towns should be something they could rectify on the new consoles as I'm sure that is directly related to physical limitations of the current systems.   Some of these things could even be increased.  Remember how they did that with GTAO when they ported it from PS3 to PS4?  .....increased NPC/road traffic, upped the graphics and so on?

I've often thought what this could mean for games like DayZ that have struggled since release on PS4 with performance.  ....although in that case, they have other issues not related to hardware at all that they still wrestle with.

Think its a combo of hardware and current gen player count in public sessions.  Because for me, its like this.

4-8 players it runs perfectly. 

8-16  A little wonky, but still works most of the time

17+  The game starts to dry up,  things bug out.

So maybe R* could add 3 free roam game modes based on those numbers.  And call them,  It Works , It Works Sometimes... and  Borked.

 

They could do more things with non free roam updates.  Like survival modes, wagon races, canoe races, pvp fist fighting game modes.     Just some small updates like that could spice things up.

 

If anything, They need to at least finish off the main RDO story co-op missions.  Before moving onto next gen.  

 

And if they really.....really want to make fans happy. They need to add private lobbies and free aim lobbies.

Yep, I agree with you guys. Hopefully R* will add some new weapons to the game soon. I’m quite found of the cap and ball revolvers as guys already know. The Colt 1860 Army would be nice, but I think they would have to nerf the Colt 1851 Navy a bit. I just don’t think they would put a revolver that powerful in game, but I could be wrong.

only if you are low level, aka below say 30.

 

half of the content is just discount vouchers on stuff you allready own as say a lv 40-50, and the rest is free ammo/collectables/crafting items/food.

i never did the 1st pass but i did and fully completed the 2nd pass. i was around 50 at that time it started, i still have several pages of unused ammo/crafting items in the mailbox cuz i cant use them up fast enugh and had a page of unused discount vouchers.(thouse go away as they are on a timer)

 

ofc the pass has some exlusive content, but you just have to make up for yourself if thouse are worth the 10euros.

the pass lasts for 3 months upon its release, so ample of time to get all 100 levels.

 

 

i have to take a loong look at the notes to see if it justifys a reinstall of the game.

since i hit 100 during the spring, i see no reason to play the game anymore. like gta5o, i was only there for the lvgrind.

like some players cannot play a game whitout achivments, i need lv rewards for when i am grinding and there are no lv rewards after 100. (map every5 lv do not count)

Pass is well worth getting if you have the Gold, which hopefully is what they charge for it again this time round - with the last pass it cost 40 gold & you got that back in vouchers if you progressed far enough, making it effectively free stuff!!

It also opens up some nice cosmetic items too & getting a free dog [the Husky] as I was considering buying 1 from the store was perfect timing - plus the dog counts for the "pet a dog" daily gold challenge.

Rewards are given out almost every level so you keep on getting "things" either clothing or gear for horses or stuff for the moonshine shack or camp - something new all the time - even discount vouchers are nice especially if you have been considering adding a horse or camp item or maybe a weapon change, but not sure you want to spend hard earned Gold or RD$

All in all I would very definitely say, yes, it's worth getting if you have the Gold  :)

Hey everybody, I was in a session earlier this morning on the PS4 and animal spawns was scarce. Could have just been that lobby but those who are grinding this weekend for the update, please give yourself extra time.

I think so yes, you get a lot of items you cant otherwise, it always pays for itself so it is free in the end as it pays you back at least the gold you spent to get it.

Last time I think it was 30 gold bars? and you got 30 plus bars back as you went through the pass so yeah why not?

Also you got some things that you otherwise couldnt get, like small clothing updates and items.

I def plan to buy the pass and the role together so as I go through the role the xp also unlocks the pass items, ususally new horses, clothes, somtimes weapon variants, etc..

 

I am soooo ready for this update lol.

Ive beeen doing daily challenges for 7 months straight and lately collecting also, I now have 6 or 7 of each collection complete and I managed to aquire 535 gold bars, 27500 in cash and get to level 366 plus I still have 42 tokens from the last outlaw pass, so yeah, I am ready for this Tuesday, cant wait.

I’m wondering if the update will drop at midnight in each of are respected time zones. 

Nope, 12:30 here and nothing yet. Giving it until 2 or 3 A.M., hoping to beat the masses. If not, tomorrow I guess and assuming it will be an absolute crapshow with nothing but maxed servers.

3:00 A.M. now here and still nothing. So much for getting a jump on everyone. Dying to dump the 10 of every collection I've been hoarding since March so I can start picking up collectibles again.

And only 16 dailies tonight...4 general instead of the usual 7.

It's cool that they finally decided to drop an update after all this time...

Im not getting high hopes tho like i did before and after playing for a week i was almost done with the update and totally disappointed. 

I was hoping for at least 3 new roles and instead we get one and its.....naturalist....cmon. Its the wild west we need bandits, raids, lawmen and they give us naturalist - most def making pictures of animals and picking up "new" (old - from the story mode) flowers.   So a bit lame for me. 

What i really hope for is fixing the honor system - its absolutely usless in its current state yet has so much potential. I would love to see the ability to hunt dishonorable players or beeing hunted. Some Jail time maybe , public hangings, busting a posse member from jail etc. Even factions in the future Lawmen vs Outlaws. 

New daily challenges - the ones we have are sooo boring.    In story mode you can rob NPC's - why isnt there a daily "Get 50 RDO$ by robbing civilians without killing them" - the system is already there in story mode......   

New weapons and mods.

NEW playgrounds - cmon Guarma is allready there....Could be a nice pvp zone or quest zone. 

Some kind of pvp pve honor system qould be great so we can compare our achievements in that fields with a ranking system - maybe some mods and clothes that could be unlocked after obtaining a certain amount of those points and so on. Would encourage ppl to pvp more. 

Well we wil see. Its good that they are giving us something at least and announce further changes - PLEASE R* DONT FCUK IT UP !!!

Im also ready for any update with lvl 389    1430 gold bars and 90k RDO$   and hope to play today without download problems ar DC's.

Yeah can be boring at some point but when i got back to playing when RDR went on Game Pass and "new blood" arrived i got hooked again in leveling. Also i do my fair share of PVP games thus getting xp. I also make minimum 7 dailys every day so i stacked up my Gold Bars to the roof with that. I didnt spend that much GB's  as im not that interested in clothing etc. I still have same 2 sets of clothing as i had when beta launched. Hopefully they will implement cool stuff that i can spend some GB on.

 

BTW - Any info on the update? did it started downloading? How big is it?   I left my X box on so it can start download while im at work (first day today after 2 weeks vacation... UGH !!!! The Pain !!

How is everyone liking the new role? 

I won't be able to install the new update until after midnight. I'm assuming the same amount in Gold Bars to purchase? 

I've been having a few problems getting the "sedative" to work on animals but that could be because I am a crap shot & am used to hitting from much further away than the tranq dart needs to be effective with a Varmint rifle!

Seems they have introduced a bit of a conflict of interest with the animal trader "Gus" & Cripps trading empire IMO but haven't explored that fully yet, so it might not be as difficult as it looked on 1st pass

Speaking of pass the rewards do look nice again & a nice spread of newer role stuff too - managed to spend 65 GB in 1 hour after the update on weapons & stuff inc. the 25GB for the role 

Love, love, love the new layout for challenges & waiting to see what they have added for the collections & collectible locations - wonder how soon it will take the community to "catch up"

Had to skim read the "fixes" on the patch - wow so very many - hopefully it will make the game playable & stable for so many who have had massive problems & we see more players return - I hope so

Overall, day 1 after a couple hours, it's made my game just that tad more lovely  :)

Purchased 25 Gold Bars in the Sony PlayStation store and I’m ready to buy into the new role after work. It is going to be awhile before I get to this role. I need to finish leveling up the Trader and Bounty Hunter roles, then I still have the Collector and Moonshiners role. My new character is getting established in game.

I take this update as a bug fix, nothing else.

Going over the details, nothing of the new stuff is of personal inntrest.

 

 

one sad note though:

Updates have been made to the randomization of Collectibles, including new locations for items dug up using the Pennington Field Shovel

Ok my thoughts on this:

I havent tried the new naturalist role y-day bcoz i focused on other aspects of the game that i expected to be changed/improoved and because im not that fond of that new role - i was hoping for something else - Lawman, Horse breader, and improvements to moonshiner role. I will get in to it today  i hope - im really not fond of it and im sure ill be killing the animals instead of making pictures and samples etc. 

At this point im dissapointed.     The huge list of bug improvements apply mostly to PC platform. The most annoying bugs for me (changing weapons when entering pvp modes or co op missions) is still here. 

Absolutely no changes to honor system - still usless 

Still cant rob NPC's , trains etc. 

Daily challenges - cmon its a joke - a couple of new ones and the division into groups.

Moonshiner bar still usless

No  new zone (i was hoping for Guarma)

No new pvp modes

No new Land of opportunity missions

Open world events are still scarce. Sometimes i run across all the locations and switch server to find absolutely no events at all. 

And to summerize it all took that much time.....fail R*.

Im sorry i cant help myslef but this "MASSIVE UPDATE" is CRAP for me.
