Red Dead Online‘s holiday events kick off in earnest this week, bringing a Christmas bounty of new freebies, discounts, XP bonuses, events, and even seasonally themed changes to the world.
The holiday season is being marked by a number of changes to the in-game world, with Christmas decorations due to appear in multiple locations including players’ Camps and Moonshine Shacks, as well as through the streets of Saint Denis. Various NPCs will also be getting into the holiday mood, with Cripps, Harriet, and Gus all indulging in carols, seasonal music, and new holiday greetings. Like in previous years, the weather will turn snowy over the holiday season in regions where snow isn’t usually seen.
Throughout the holidays until January 5, Red Dead will be paying out double RDO$ and Character XP in Call To Arms, as well as double RDO$ and Role XP for all bounty hunters taking on Bounty Missions. Moonshiners and Traders are also getting bonuses, with a double RDO$ payout on all deliveries over the holiday period.
