Red Dead Redemption 2 UPDATE: Good news for Xbox One, bad news for PS4 gamers

Red Dead Redemption 2 fans can download a brand new update to the hit Rockstar Games title on the PS4 and Xbox One.

The latest Red Dead Redemption 2 update brings with it new content and bonuses to the Red Dead Online mode.

The new Red Dead Redemption 2 download brings with it new clothing options, Ability Card XP multipliers and more to Red Dead Online.

But with the release of the latest Rockstar Games download PS4 gamers have lost some Red Dead Redemption 2 bragging rights.

Prior to today, the PS4 was the only place Red Dead Redemption 2 fans could make use of the brutal ancient tomahawk weapon.

This deadly weapon was previous part of PS4 early access content, but it has now become available to Red Dead Redemption 2 players on Xbox One also.

Other early access content that previously was only available on the PS4 has also become available to Red Dead Online fans on the Xbox One.

This content includes the Perlino Andalusian Horse, Belanger Saddle, Finley Jacket, Stenger Studded Spurs and Caldwell Hat.

Two new Emotes – ‘Boast’ and ‘Hey, You’ – are also now available on Xbox One as is the free-for-all carnage of the Last Stand mode.

The news was revealed in a post on the Rockstar Games website, which detailed what’s included with the latest Red Dead Redemption 2 update.

Rockstar Games also teased what is coming in the future to Red Dead Redemption 2.

The RDR2 makers said: “We’ve been working on implementing some of the top-requested features for the next major Red Dead Online update – including the ability to reset your character’s appearance without altering your progress, automatically retaining Playing Style preferences (Defensive/Offensive) when transitioning to and from Free Roam and much, much more.”
