We all saw it coming, right? Well today Rockstar has officially announced that it will be trying to go after your money with microtransactions in Red Dead Redemption 2. And, just like in GTA Online, the prices are abysmal.
If this is coming across as me being a little sour then you’re bang on. The grind in Red Dead Online is already an absolute piss-take, but now it is obvious why; Rockstar wants your monies. Gold Bars, the premium in-game currency that’s needed to buy the best gear, is now available to buy for real world money. Don’t want to grind? Pay the fee. It’s standard Rockstar behaviour by now but it doesn’t make it any less crappy. You can have a look at the prices below, as well as the “special” offer.
I, for one, will not be putting a single penny into Red Dead Online. In fact, I’m never going to play it. Jeff off, Rockstar.
