"Thanks to everyone who has participated in the beta so far, we appreciate your help in testing the game!"
Original story: Red Dead Online players aren't happy with how the in-game economy is shaping up.
The update will address that be ensuring "all activities are appropriately rewarding and fun".
Currently, some players believe that the in-game economy isn't balanced enough.
Rockstar Games Red Dead Online became available to all Red Dead Redemption 2 players on November 30
"The game has been developed so that we will be able to quickly make any adjustments like these", Rockstar said. There is regular ol' cash, and also gold nuggets/bars, the latter of which will eventually be tied to microtransactions. Players quickly found out that baked beans are more valuable than gold rings, based on Red Dead Online's economy-and that's probably not right. The game is available to all players at present, and the beta is meant as the beginning of "Red Dead Online" proper.
If you're not familiar, there's two layers of currency in Red Dead Online. Several bars are often required for a purchase. Aside from the world feeling somewhat barren, the multiplayer mode suffers from a weird in-game economy where gold watches are worth less than a can of baked beans.
Interestingly, the statement notes that fixes to Red Dead Online will begin rolling out at the end of this week.
Another redditor, Sinful_One, reached out to Rockstar to question the rate at which they were earning currency, and the reply didn't do much to quell the ire of the community.
