Red Dead Online, the multiplayer accompaniment of Red Dead Redemption 2, is finally live and – surprise! – It sounds a lot like Grand Theft Auto Online. Which means one thing – microtransactions!
Or at least he'll get them, anyway. Red Dead Online is still in beta and will remain so in the near future, as Rockstar ensures that everything is in working order before activating certain features. Features such as microtransactions, which here take the form of gold bullion, are not yet activated – perhaps to escape the exploits that have affected the beginnings of GTA Online – which means that agreement with them now simply does not exist.
But we have an idea of how they work once the feature is activated. There is some confusion as to how they integrate perfectly into the economy of Red Dead Online, and a fair amount of misinformation is transmitted, so here is what we learned from what is currently in the beta version.
