Those of you itching to return to the Wild West this summer may be tempted to give Red Dead Online another try, with the addition of the Blood Money update from 13th July. “There are whispers in the alleys of Lemoyne’s capital that Guido Martelli – right-hand man and underboss to the infamous Angelo Bronte – needs gunslingers of strong constitution. Martelli is seeking to recover a valuable commodity known as Capitale,” the blurb teases. “Originally devised as a unique system of exchange for more sensitive business dealings away from the watchful eyes of the taxman, it's since ended up in the hands of nearly every lowlife across the five states. Now, Bronte and Martelli want it back.”
You’ll be embarking on new mini-missions, named Crimes, all across the open world, collecting the aforementioned Capitale for Martelli. Returning it will open up Opportunities, of which the first of three will be available from next week. “[Opportunities] are dispatched by Martelli in a scheme to stifle a rising Lemoyne senator who is disrupting Bronte operations throughout the region. Each Opportunity can reveal various approaches to the task at hand – listen into nearby conversations or look out for important targets to uncover new paths to completion and weaken this politician’s position by bringing each of the three Jewels of the West to Martelli.”
The new missions and content will be complemented by the Quick Draw Club, a series of mini Battle Passes with a 25 Gold Bar buy-in. In addition to earning your money back by completing the 25 tier tasks, you’ll also unlock rewards, such as Dutch’s Redcliff Outfit. Buy all four passes over the coming months, and you’ll get free entry to a fifth: the upcoming Halloween Pass 2. You can find more information about all of the upcoming updates on the Rockstar Newswire.
