Rockstar has today launched three new Frontier Pursuits in Red Dead Online, giving you a new path to pursue as either a Bounty Hunter tracking notorious criminals, a Trader partnered with your entrepreneurial buddy Cripps, or as a treasure hunting Collector.

You can focus upon a single Specialist Role at one time, or choose to pursue all three at once, but each role has a setup cost of 15 Gold Bars to acquire a Bounty Hunter License, Butcher Table or Collector's bag. Each item can be acquired for free, if you're a Twitch Prime member who linked your Rockstar Social Club account.

Bounty Hunters can get the license with a linked Twitch account, Collectors can get the bag for free upon collecting all 54 hidden playing cards in GTA Online, and access to the free Butcher's Table is a PS Plus exclusive on PS4 until 14th October. PS Plsu members also get a RDO$250 cash injection until 7th October. Alongside the new Specialist Roles, there are also new items, weapons, clothing, horse-drawn vehicles, and other updates.

Directional damage indicators have also been added, as have additional horse breeds, the ability to change your character's appearance without resetting progress, expanded custom outfit slots, Role-specific Free Roam Events, increased selling prices for looted jewelry, more responsive combat animations, and various game balancing and improvements have also been rolled out.

You can also get automatically enrolled in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club upon logging into Red Dead Online between 10th September (today) and 18th November 2019. This will grant access to free clothng and accessories, a special gun wrap, bonus cash, free care packages, an emote, new graphic camp flag, and more.

For 35 Gold Bars, you can also grab The Outlaw Pass (a battle pass, basically) for a range of rewrds, including exclusive clothing, weapons stylings, campsite themes, bonus cas, Gold gifts of up to 35 bars, and a bunch of other stuff. Red Dead Redemption 2 Ultimate Edition players can also grab two Bounty Hunter horses - the "sturdy" Sorrel Breton and "handsome" Red Roan Breton - without parting with the usual RDO$ cost.

Frontier Pursuits and Specialist Roles are live now in Red Dead Online on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, alongside the latest update, the full patch notes for which you'll find here. PS4 players can also get the Trader Camp Theme and Weapons Locker at Trader Role Rank 5, free from the Wilderness Outfitters until 14th October.

The American Foxhound Camp Dog, Shoot the Sky Emote, three new Ability Cards (Gunslinger's Choice, Strength in Numbers and Ride Like The Wind) and three new clothing items (the Carrigan Hat, Burnham Boots and Avery Gloves) are also PS4 exclusives in Red Dead Online until 14th October 14th.

So I’m going to assume everyone is now going to be a bounty hunter lol.

I’ve never really got into this game online, same with GTAV.. just couldn’t understand the appeal.. the campaigns were great. But yeah, couldn’t click with the online modes.

I imagine it that way. The cities and villages will be still death zones, All Bounty Hunters will act like vultures. The other jobs will still be deadly cause even when they make it harder for hostile players to find the "normal" folk, they will find you and they will kill you.

So technical it is still a one against all.

And don't forget the micros in the game.

And Rockstar keeps on with their track record of forgetting the single player community.

@#3 Because the online multiplayer brings in more money. It's called business. If you've got two options you choose the one that will yield more money.

@4 so make paid single player content, I’ll glady pay for all these online updates if they put them in single player. Same with GTA 5. I would gladly pay for all those online DLC’s if they incorporate them into the single player for Michael, Trevor & Franklin

GTA4 had Single Player paid DLC and it did well. I'd rather have one dope SP DLC, than years of content that'll never make it past the online multiplayer. But that's me.

@4 It's not quite that simple. MP content is might make more comparatively more money but it's undeniably damaging their brand and gamers perception of them.
