How to reset your character's appearance in Red Dead Online
It's the first thing I did.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a cinematic action-adventure game set in the Wild West. The title takes place in 1899, a time which brought stability to the United States, but also resulted in a drastic shift for many individuals who lived close to the untamed frontier.
Beforehand, the federal government chose not to heavily intervene in these territories, going all the way to California. However, the need for consolidation and some form of control — especially when states like Montana and Utah were admitted into the Union — triggered an end to the uncontrolled lawlessness that prevailed during those times. What many people considered true freedom was coming to an end.
Red Dead Online is the multiplayer portion of the game that allows you to create your own character. However, once you made one, you couldn't modify him or her. Luckily, on September 10, that changed and now you can reset your character's appearance once for free. If you want to modify it later, you'll have to pay $400 of in-game currency.
Just start Free Roam in Red Dead Online and press the left D-pad quickly, once. This will open the in-game settings menu. Here, you'll find an option to change your character's appearance. Hold the A button for a while and you'll be brought to another menu where you can customize to your heart's content. The video showcases exactly what you can do.
