RDR 2 PS4 Exclusives Now Available On Xbox One
« on: January 11, 2019, 11:59:32 am »
A set of PS4-exclusive items for the Red Dead Online beta in Red Dead Redemption 2 are no longer exclusive. As part of a larger update, Rockstar unlocked the items for Xbox One players to enjoy.

In a note tucked away at the end of an update about larger changes, Rockstar mentioned that Xbox One players now have access to the Red Chestnut Arabian Horse, Alligator Skin Ranch Cutter Saddle, and the High Roller Double-Action Revolver. Those were announced with a 30 day exclusivity window on PS4, which has now expired. This is regular content available to everyone, rather than special edition content.

This came alongside an update that added the new battle royale mode Gun Rush. In it, you'll have to grab weapons and ammo fast while the play area shrinks, until there's only one player remaining. It's available for up to 32 players, and can be played as free-for-all or in a team.

Rockstar also announced that RDO will remain in beta for a few more months, as the developer adds more features and makes changes to "stabilize and refine" the experience. Some of those include daily missions and new story challenges, but most of the quality-of-life changes are coming to help police player interactions. The Law and Bounty system will be changed to "reduce the enticements for griefing" and the map will show players at shorter distances so you can't be tracked from afar. Plus it will somehow mark more aggressive players so you know who not to mess with.
