Fans of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online should circle the 13th of July on their calendars, because the game will be receiving plenty of fresh content. The upcoming Blood Money update will give you many reasons to jump back into Red Dead Online, in addition to bringing the long-awaited DLSS support to both Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.
Developed by Rockstar, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a massive open-world Western game that has you spinning revolvers and riding horses as you and your gang live as outlaws. If you are playing on a Windows PC and have the correct NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics card, the update on the 13th of July will provide DLSS support, allowing you to improve your frames-per-second without sacrificing visual quality.
The DLSS update greatly benefits a game like Red Dead Redemption 2 where visuals take center stage. Prior games that have taken advantage of NVIDIA’s DLSS have seen massive performance gains. NVIDIA claims that in Call of Duty: Warzone, players can expect up to 70% boost in performance when using DLSS.
The Blood Money update will also add a host of missions to Red Dead Online. These missions circle around a man named Guido Martelli who needs a trusty gunslinger to help him obtain a valuable commodity known as Capitale. It can be obtained by partaking in Crimes, either alone or with a posse. Crimes include coach holdups and kidnapping, to name a few. Return enough Capitale to Martelli, and you will be invited to partake in Opportunities where you help Martelli thwart an up-and-coming Lemoyne senator.
The upcoming update will also bring The Quick Draw Club to Red Dead Online. For the price of 25 in-game gold bars, you can gain access to one of four passes that will entitle you to rewards and useful items. Gamers who purchase all four passes will also get the upcoming Halloween Pass 2 free.
Fashion-conscious players will be happy to learn that fan favorite clothing items that have appeared in the past will be making a return in the upcoming weeks. This includes “outfits worn by the legendary members of the Van der Linde Gang like Marston’s outfit, The Clelland, Arthur’s Haraway outfit, the Dedham outfit worn by Bill Williamson, and Javier’s The Zapatero outfit”.
Rockstar is certainly keeping busy. In addition to this major update, the studio is also set to release Grand Theft Auto V remastered for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S in 2021. Red Dead Redemption 2 and its online counterpart are currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
