The latest update for Red Dead Online has arrived, and if you’re looking to earn extra rewards while being the fastest horseman in the west then now’s the time to saddle up. Bonuses for joining a posse, time-limited clothing, and plenty of discounts to help you start a stable full of thoroughbred stallions are also being offered this week.
Developer Rockstar Games has detailed all of this week’s updates and more in a new blog post that you can read about below.
Double rewards on all races, A Land of Opportunities, and A New Source of Employment
Plenty of extra prizes are up for grabs this week, as entering your faithful steed in a race will reward out double XP and cash for the next seven days. Exacting revenge in A Land of Opportunities and delivering telegrams in A New Source of Employment missions will also see rewards doubled.
There’s always strength in numbers, and playing in a posse at any time this week will earn you an offer for 30% off a stable slot, and all persistent posse setup fees will be temporarily waived.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has so far sold more than 36 million copies and has become one of Rockstar’s biggest critical and commercial success stories. Red Dead Online has also proven to be successful as well, with player numbers continuing to rise in the months since the multiplayer component became a standalone offering and constant updates made the sandbox a more interesting environment to explore.
