Perhaps taking cues from Fallout 76 and its players who decided to take on the roles of its lacking helpful NPCs, Rockstar has announced its next major update for Red Dead Online will include three initial "Specialist" roles for players: the Bounty Hunter, the Trader and the Collector.
Here's the official rundown on what these roles will entail:
Later this summer, the world will evolve again with the introduction of specialist roles – unique paths of progression, each providing their own experience with tailored gameplay elements and benefits that will allow players to become even more deeply connected to their character and the choices they make as they inhabit the world of Red Dead Online. This fundamental change points to the long term future of Red Dead Online – a world where players coexist in an uneasy peace, choosing to band together or striking out alone, fighting to survive in a world full of threats and opportunities as they build a life for themselves on the frontier.Additionally, Rockstar says the update will have new enhancements and will address combat and balance as well as movement "to allow for a more responsive control system that still feels natural", which is an interesting tidbit since so many of the divisive crowd in the negative use the game's deliberate and realistic movement system as a reason they don't praise the game as much as some other people.
There's no date on when the update will drop, but apparently more will be revealed in what to expect of it in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
Please to be making the PC version. My PC is ready and willing.
I couldnt hold out. The game is a master piece. But f*** the multiplayer on controller.
Yeah I got an Xbox and have played it on that. 30fps is really hard to bear though. Clocked up a s***load of hours on it but waiting patiently for the PC version now.
