Red Dead Redemption gets free download packed with bonus content

Red Dead Redemption gets free download packed with bonus content

There's a lot of new content to be found for the bounty hunters amongst you

It isn’t always easy to find love in the hopeless planes of Red Dead Redemption, but every now and then a free download appears that promises to prick our hearts more deeply than Cupid ever could.

We’re feeling the love in Red Dead Redemption this month thanks to the bumper pack of bonus content that’s been added. Even if you’re not lucky in love this Valentine’s Day, you can be lucky in items thanks to Red Dead Online.

You don’t even have to play specifically on Valentine’s Day to unlock some of these sweet treats, though it’s advised that you explore the frontier on that day to get the most out of this bonus crop of goodies.

As much as fans are fixated on the future of Rockstar Games’ beloved franchise, wondering if the ‘Gold Rush’ will be the perfect setup for the third instalment, there’s gold to be found much sooner, and more easily. Put that pan down and get ready to make bank on those bounties you’ve been tasked with wrangling.

Fancy seeing some Red Dead Redemption 2 wins and fails? Of course you do!

Settle in because there’s a lot of content to get your hands on this month:

  • Double RDO$, Gold, and XP on all Bounties
  • Double RDO$ and XP on Free Roam Missions, Day of Reckoning and Manhunt
  • Free Minty Big Game and 3 Brookstone Bolas for playing any time this month
  • All Fast Travel Fees Waived
  • 40% off a Single Bandolier for participating in Day of Reckoning or Manhunt
  • Three Chocolate Bars, five Fire Arrows, and Red Patterned Bandana – free for playing any time the week of Valentine’s Day (February 13-19)
  • Free Outpour Emote for completing Love and Honor between February 13-19
  • The Chambliss Corset, Hitched Skirt, Hopeman Vest, and Griffith Chaps returning through March 4
  • 10 Gold Bars off the Prestigious Bounty Hunter License for reaching Wave 3 in any Call to Arms mode
  • Free black Woodland Gloves for reaching low honor any time this month
  • Bounty Hunters who complete a legendary bounty each week will receive:
  • February 6 – 12: An Offer for 40% off the Fast Travel Post upgrade for your Campsite
  • February 13 – 19: A pink pair of Grayshott Pants
  • February 20 – 26: A Reward for the North Ridgewood Treasure Map
  • February 27 – March 4: A red pair of Darned Stockings
  • Double RDO$ and XP on the Featured Series

  • February 13 – 19: Hardcore Hostile Territory, Plunder, and Shootout
  • February 20 – 26: Hardcore Plunder and Spoils of War Series
  • February 27 – March 4: Hardcore Make it Count Throwing Knives, Plunder, and Shootout
  • Free Community-Inspired Outfit comprised of: The Tiltham Hat, Ribbon Tie, Everyday Shirt (Male) or Iniesta Shirtwaist (Female), Opulent Vest, Brakeman Jacket (Male) or Hartell Autumn Jacket (Female), Range Gloves, Cuffed Town Pants, and Hardie Boots
  • Discounts: 5 Gold Bars off Bounty Hunter Licenses, 30% off Bounty Hunter Role Outfits, Bounty Hunter Wagon & Tints, the Reinforced Lasso, Pamphlets for Split Point Cartridges, Poison Arrow and Poison Throwing Knife, Missouri Fox Trotter Horses, and Bolas, 40% off Dresses and Chaps, Sniper Rifles, Throwing Weapons, Off-Hand Holsters, and Prestigious Bounty Hunter Emotes.

Of course, if that sounds overwhelming to you, not only is the frontier maybe not for you, but you can thankfully still be involved simply for participating (aka showing up) this month. Then you can retire, just like Jack Marston did, and find a life far away from the wilds of the west.

Red Dead Online is available for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC gamers.
