Giddy on up folks because Red Dead Redemption 2 next update has just been announced, it’s called Blood Money. Quite possibly their biggest update to the game and something all fans of the game have been waiting for ever since the game was first released.
There are whispers in the alleys of Lemoyne’s capital that Guido Martelli, right-hand man and underboss to the infamous Angelo Bronte needs gunslingers of strong constitution. Martelli is seeking to recover a valuable commodity known as Capitale. Originally devised as a unique system of exchange for more sensitive business dealings away from the watchful eyes of the taxman. Unfortunately, it just ended up in the hands of nearly every lowlife across the five states and now Bronte and Martelli want it back. Your challenge is to find and return it and for that Martelli will reward you with access to more worthwhile criminal opportunities. Martelli is purely focused on results and will reward you with entry into his world of civilized crime requiring nothing more than a trusty sidearm and the willingness to use it.
With that said the main theme of the update will be robberies and heists on the NPC camps and home steads but you will have to work up to that as you will be sent on retrieval missions first. Unlike previous updates where you needed to earn gold to start the game, this one will be completely free to all players
Martelli has entrusted some of the west’s most reprehensible soldiers of fortune with leads on where the player might find Capitale. Visiting these various contacts will reveal an entirely new type of work known as Crimes. Embark on Crimes either as a lone gun or with a full Posse of cutthroats alongside yourself. During each outing, keep a keen wit and search high and low for signs of Capitale to return to Guido Martelli. including from hidden chests or on the remains of those who have crossed your path. Accumulating enough Capitale for Guido Martelli will reveal Opportunities. These are dispatched by Martelli in a scheme to stifle a rising Lemoyne senator who is disrupting Bronte operations throughout the region. Each Opportunity can reveal various approaches to the task at hand, just listen into nearby conversations or look out for important targets to uncover new paths to completion and weaken this politician’s position by bringing each of the three Jewels of the West to Martelli.
Heist and robberies won’t be the only thing coming with this update; in response to many players feedback, the Skill and Satchel Pamphlets previously released via the Outlaw Pass, such as unlocking the ability to Fast Travel from a Wilderness Camp it can be found placed on general sale at the Fence. Plus, over the coming weeks and months, some of the most stylish and oft-requested clothing items from Outlaw Passes No. 2 and No. 3, return for players who were unable to obtain them the first time around.
New Outfits worn by the legendary members of the Van der Linde Gang:
- Marston’s outfit,
- The Clelland,
- Arthur’s Haraway outfit,
- Dedham outfit worn by Bill Williamson
- Javier’s The Zapatero outfit
This update is bringing a lot of new players and even old ones back to the game. As for myself I am already getting my horse all saddled up as its set to release on a week from now on June 13th. So, keep them pistols hot and get ready to ride in Red Dead Redemption Blood Money.
