This week in Red Dead Online another batch of timed exclusive PlayStation 4 content is unlocked on Xbox One and all players will be getting a wide selection of new clothing items. There are also new XP bonuses in action and Rockstar has also implemented some fan suggestions in the latest update.
Players on the Xbox One and who haven't been able to hop into Last Stand or Make It Count: Ancient Tomahawk can finally try out these Showdown modes. Released 30 days go on PlayStation 4, they are now available to all players regardless of platform.
Alongside the two game modes, a whole swath of items have also been unlocked. Previously restricted to PS4, the Perlino Andalusian Horse, the Belanger Saddle, the Finley Jacket, the Stenger Studded Spurs and the Caldwell Hat are now all available on Xbox One, as well as the Boast and Hey You emotes. Obviously, the Ancient Tomahawk weapon has also been unlocked alongside its own mode.
Two permanent and four limited edition clothing items have been made available in Red Dead Online today. The modest but universal Common Flat Cap and the stylish Horsfall Overshirt are both here to stay. You only have a limited time to grab the Griffith Chaps, the Charro Jacket, the Clymene Coat and the Vaquero Baroque Spurs.
If you're looking to boost your character's skills with better abilities, all Ability cards in Red Dead Online accumulate XP at a rate increased by 20%. Additionally, all Special Saddles are on a 25% discount - if you're high enough rank to use them at all that is! Rank 41 horses can be accessed at Rank 40 this week, and all Rank 30 hats are accessible at Rank 10.
A new major update for Red Dead Online is in the works and Rockstar has been listening to player feedback all the way through the beta (and since it ended). Players will soon be able to change their character's appearance without having to delete them and lose their progress, and Playing Style Preferences will carry over with transfers.
