Players who tried out Red Dead Online during the first week of beta will receive $250 of in-game currency and 15 gold bars as a thank you from Rockstar.

Red Dead Online entered its open beta on November 27 for those who preordered the game and became to open to all players within a few days.

Players have complained that making money in Red Dead Online can be difficult, due to the pricing of shops and other players constantly attacking them; now it looks like Rockstar is giving fans some bailout money.

Users who log on to Red Dead Online before 12 AM PST on December 7, will receive $250 of in-game currency and 15 gold bars completely free, by December 14.

Gold bars are the game’s secondary currency, used to unlock some of the coolest cosmetics in the game. Eventually they’ll be available to purchase through the game’s microtransaction shop, but for now, the only way for players to get them is to grind and earn some.

The shot in the arm of cash and gold should allow players to better equip themselves with weapons and supplies, and the game’s December 6 update will also reward more for completing random encounters and other quests.

This is a pretty great way to say “thanks” from Rockstar to all the players who have stuck through the beta, now all they need to do is put bounties on player killers and we’ll be all set.


Red Ded Redemption cosplayers become real-life Arthur & Sadie Adler

Two incredible gaming cosplayers came together to create their own versions of Red Dead Redemption’s Arthur and Sadie Adler — and the photos look like they’re straight out of the game.

The first Red Dead Redemption game came out in 2010 and immediately earned mass appeal, with the 2018 prequel keeping the franchise alive and fans flocking to the servers of the Western adventure game.

As with every popular game, film or TV show, though, fans have all different ways of honoring their favorites, and cosplayers are no exception.

Arthur and Sadie are a favorite of Red Dead fans.

We’ve seen some incredible cosplays in our time, but this one is really something special, with ‘maul_cosplay‘ creating his flawless take on protagonist Arthur Morgan.

That’s not all, though, as he also recruited female cosplayer ‘msskunk’ as Sadie, bringing the fan-favorite couple to life.

“RDR2 is my absolute favorite game and I think Arthur and Sadie should spend more time together,” maul said in his Instagram post. “That’s what the photos are about. Arthur and Sadie enjoying life and spending some quality time together.”

Arthur and Sadie’s relationship was an important one in Red Dead Redemption, and it would have been interesting to see their story developed further, and fans are definitely interested in seeing what occurs between the two — and the cosplay really showcases that. Not to mention, the outfits and setting are literally spot-on, and it’s almost impossible to find any difference between this and the characters themselves.

Both the photos and the cosplays themselves came out looking incredible, as if the characters were lifted right out of the game. Heck, you wouldn’t be laughed at for mistaking this for game art rather than just a photo of two cosplayers paying homage.

This isn’t the first of maul’s cosplays to make waves, with some brilliant looks taken from the likes of Assassin’s Creed and Borderlands 3’s Zane.

If you’re looking for great gaming cosplays, maul and msskunk might be one of the best places to look, since their attention to detail is sublime.
