Red Dead Redemption 2 Froniter Persuits countdown: Summer update to go live soon

The world of Red Dead Online is about to evolve. So get your gun polish out and start sharpening those arrows, because big changes are a-comin'.

Rockstar's latest update, named Frontier Pursuits, will feature three new Specialist Roles allowing players to more effectively roleplay in the massive online world.

Each of these new classes comes equipped with their own unique paths and activities to help you forge new directions and carve out a life for yourself on the frontier.

You can either do the law’s dirty work and bring some of the most dangerous criminals to justice as a Bounty Hunter, partner with Cripps and turn your camp into a burgeoning business as a Trader, or search for valuable treasures across the five states as a Collector.

As per Rockstar:

"As you progress through each Role you’ll rank up, unlock new items, benefits and skills to enhance your experiences across the world, from gun spinning tricks to improved Eagle Eye and much more.

"Wheeler, Rawson & Co. proudly services the five states with frontier-ready hunting and fishing supplies, attire fit for everything from mixing with the upper echelon of Saint Denis to camping at Brandywine Drop, and provisions for distant travels in between."

Rockstar has announced a new feature coming to the game with Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club in the coming update, too.

"As an act of appreciation to all customers, the company presents the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club: an automatic and free way to unlock and acquire Rewards as you accumulate XP (including Role XP) in Red Dead Online. Just by playing you’ll receive new clothing and accessories, a special gun wrap, bonus cash, free tonics and more. As a Wheeler, Rawson & Co. customer, you're automatically enrolled in the Club and everything you unlock during the Club Membership period – from September 10th to November 18th, 2019 – will be yours to keep in perpetuity."

Launching September 10th alongside the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club, The Outlaw Pass is an upgrade that offers even more items and the kind of perks that befit a debonair, well-traveled outlaw – at a heavily reduced cost. For 35 Gold Bars, members who sign up for The Outlaw Pass will receive an abundance of Pass Rewards including exclusive clothing, distinctive styles for your armaments, adornment for any campsite, bonus cash, special vouchers and much more.

Progress through all 70 Ranks to take advantage of every benefit including bonus Gold Bar gifts amounting to 35 Gold Bars.

It's basically a Rockstar/Red Dead Online Battle pass.

All Outlaw Pass Rewards up to your current Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club Membership Rank unlock instantly once The Outlaw Pass is purchased, and everything you unlock between September 10th and November 18th will persist after the Membership period expires.

This new update and the Outlaw Pass are all due to go live on September 10, and Rockstar updates tend to land fairly early in the morning in UK time (so that means you can expect it to be online for midday at the latest if previous updates are anything to go by).

We'll keep you updated as more information presents itself.
