The latest update for the ongoing Red Dead Online beta has arrived, and it adds a new free roam event. The event is a “Fishing Challenge,” that, as its name suggests, challenges players to compete against others to catch as many fish as possible.
As part of the challenge, players are tasked with racking up the most total weight for fish; and this has variations for water types: Lakes, Rivers, and Swamps.
In addition to the new fishing challenge, Rockstar has introduced a number of new items to grab from the store, including the Gator Hat, Ortega Vest, Pelt Half Chaps, and Woodland Gloves. They are available for a limited time from Wheeler, Rawson, and Co.
Finally, Rockstar is offering a 30 percent XP boost for hunting all animals, while players can also get a Fishing Care Package that comes with 5x Live Crickets, 1x River Lure, 1x Lake Lure and 1x Swamp Lure. The package is available from the Post office or loxkbox at camp.
Red Dead Online is the multiplayer component of Red Dead Redemption 2 that is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is still in beta.
