While there are likely many updates in the pipeline, Rockstar is honing in on the economy for this first major update.
Despite many players enjoying Red Dead Online thus far, many have been less than pleased about the state of the in-game economy.
"I understand your concern that you are facing an issue with Red Dead Redemption 2 online Beta". The devs will also be constantly updating players on the progress of the beta while making more tweaks in the future.
Red Dead Online's obviously a huge deal for Rockstar, and the beta's been going on for about a week now.
Rockstar Games Red Dead Online became available to all Red Dead Redemption 2 players on November 30
"Our current areas of focus include the in-game economy, which will require some additional balancing in order to ensure all activities are appropriately rewarding and fun, as well as some persistent bugs that are causing players to be kicked from sessions". Players say that it is out of balance, pointing to examples like baked beans being worth more than gold rings. Fortunately, Rockstar has responded to these issues in a status update, promising that a fix is incoming.
"The game has been developed so that we will be able to quickly make any adjustments like these", Rockstar said.
"Red Dead Online' features an open world that players can explore, teeming with story missions, animals to hunt, fishing spots, posses, camps, and various other ways to interact with the massive game world and characters within it".
Some players feel the time cost of earning gold bars is prohibitive because developer Rockstar would prefer people spend real money on them.
