You Can Now Buy Gold Bars With Real Money In Red Dead Online
Rockstar's latest blog post covering Red Dead Online outlines a few ambiguous changes to the game, and details how players can get free gold.
You can read the blog post here. In it, Rockstar thanks players for playing the beta and says that everyone who participated will get 15 gold bars. Rockstar writes, "The awards will begin rolling out today and if you haven’t experienced the Red Dead Online Beta yet, play by Thursday, December 20th for eligibility. All gold bar gifts should be delivered by Monday, December 24th. Keep an eye out for an alert screen when entering the Red Dead Online Beta to confirm the gift." So if you haven't started playing Red Dead Online, now is a good time to start.
Rockstar also wants to thank pre-order players by handing out some RDO$. If you pre-ordered any version of the game, you will get RDO$100. If you pre-ordered the special edition of the game you will get an additional RDO$100 and if you per-ordered the ultimate edition you will get an additional RDO$1,000.
You can now purchase gold bars with real world money as the store is now open. Currently you can get 25 gold bars for $9.99 (there is also a special offer to get 25 for $4.99), 55 for $19.99, 150 for $49.99, 245 for $74.99, or 350 for $99.99.
Finally, the game has been updated. The patch notes read, "Title Update 1.05 has been released addressing general improvements to fix game stability, save data and to address exploits."
