A few months ago, developer Rockstar Games announced that you should be able to change your character's appearance in Red Dead Online soon. Since then, gamers have been waiting patiently for any further announcements. Luckily, the update is coming on September 10.
Today, the team said that Red Dead Online's Summer Update launches next Tuesday and also comes with the first of three new Frontier Pursuits. Frontier Pursuits are Specialist Roles that include a unique path, themed activities, items, and more. More importantly, Dynamic Events now happen across the frontier.
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.
