The next update for Rockstar’s Red Dead Online will arrive on February 26 and contains several changes, including a new “Law and Bounty” system designed to deter players from randomly killing other players.

Red Dead Online went live just about a month after Red Dead Redemption 2 came out on October 26, but the online game was soon criticized for what many players saw as a lack of content.

One of the biggest changes coming in the update affects player visibility, players minimap dots won’t become visible unless players are within 150 meters of one another, a little longer if they fire their weapon.

Players who attack other players and are just hostile in general, will have their position and the position of their posse, become progressively more visible on the minimap to everyone.

There’s also a new Law and Bounty system, which will now assign players a bounty based on the crimes they’ve committed, and dispatch a number of NPC bounty hunters to track the player and try and collect the bounty by killing them, similar to single-player mode.

Different crimes will have different bounty values based on how serious the crime is, so killing another player unprovoked would warrant a high bounty, while other crimes like assaulting townsfolk or animal cruelty would cause less of a bounty.

If a player’s bounty exceeds a certain amount and Bounty Hunters take notice, they’ll be wanted dead and the NPCs will begin their pursuit the higher the bounty, the greater the player’s value and the more difficult the pursuit becomes.

Rockstar will also be adding new Daily Challenges for players from which they can earn XP and gold nuggets.

Daily Challenges can range from looking for herbs, selling items at a Fence, hunting and skinning animals, clearing hideouts of enemies, winning Feuds and more.

Rockstar said in the update that select weapons will also be balanced, like the Varmint Rifle, which is having it’s accuracy brought more in line with other longarm weapons.

The latest Red Dead Online update will happen on Tuesday, February 26.

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.
