Red Dead Online Gets Halloween Update

Red Dead Online players will be able to celebrate Halloween this month thanks to new content, bonuses, and spooky-related items. Despite Rockstar Games confirming it was essentially done supporting Red Dead Online with big content drops, it has continued to keep things running with smaller updates. While we won't be seeing things like heists, houses, or other big updates that fans hoped to see for quite a while, it is nice that Rockstar is continuing to offer new things and bring back fan favorite items for those who want to continue playing the beloved online mode.

Rockstar Games has revealed all of the Red Dead Online content it will be giving players access to for October. On October 18th, there will be a new pair of hardcore Telegram missions that allow you to investigate reports of a cult partaking in an "eerie ritual", though details are scarce on the moment. Players can also pick up the Halloween Pass 2 or continue where they left off if they previously made progress in it. As per usual, there are also a plethora of bonuses, discounts, and free items that players can scoop up with this update. You can view the full list of ways you can celebrate Halloween in Red Dead Online down below.
