RED DEAD ONLINE BETA: TARGET RACES NOW AVAILABLE (26/3/19)

Recommended Posts

Shoot targets while on horseback to pass checkpoints while racing and be first to finish in Target Races, today's addition to the Red Dead Online Beta.

 

All players start out with a bow and arrow – as you race, each target you hit will increase your Horse’s Stamina – but you can also take advantage of strategic pickups along the courses. Ride through Stamina pickups to extend your Horse’s sprinting time or quickly recover from a drained Horse Stamina core. Weapons pickups dole out firearms with limited ammo supplies – use a shotgun blast to quickly and easily takeout a checkpoint target or turn that weapon against your competition. While players can lock-on to checkpoint targets, using weapons against other competitors will require proficiency with free-aim. If you’re trailing behind, ride in your competitor’s slipstream to regenerate Horse Stamina quickly and gain a slight speed boost, or if you’re defending a lead you can kick your competitors to reduce their Horse Stamina levels with a slight chance of being able to knock them down. 

 

Launch Target Races from the Landing Page menu, using the Quick Join option or riding to a Featured Series sign post.

 

PlayStation 4 players get early access to Open Target Races, where you compete in an open space to take out all targets then race to the finish. You’re free to shoot targets in any order you wish, just keep an eye on how quickly your competition is knocking out targets and use the mini-map to know which target to hit next.

 

PS4 players will also see the Special Series icon appear on the game map; the Special Series will appear whenever there is a PS4 early access mode and launch players directly into a series.

 

2b377315606f4c40156ef83b81ab4bc1a3cdf7ac

 

Whether you’re shooting your way through a Target Race, helping folks in need in Free Roam Missions, clearing Hideouts, hunting game, crafting supplies, or choosing the honorable (or dishonorable) path in A Land of Opportunities, the Red Dead Online Beta is dishing out a 20% boost on all XP earning activities. You can also take off 25% from everything in the Horse Care Section at the Stables and in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue including medicines, revivers, stimulants and the trusty brush.

 

Higher ranked players can always upgrade their saddles with 25% off Improved Saddles. Plus, look for the latest shipments of frontier worthy clothing:

 

  • Morning Tail Coat
  • Strickland Boots
  • Bowyer Boots (Female only)
  • Furred Gloves

 

Look for more additions to the Red Dead Online Beta in the weeks ahead, including new Showdown Modes Up In Smoke and Plunder, along with a big new update later this Spring.

Are they seriously implementing the Slip Stream feature from GTA into Horse Racing now?

It looks that way.

 

What a fantastic idea. /s

 

As if racing in RDO wasn't already sh*t enough.

Because Target Assault Races were so popular in GTAO.

Not completely sure I'd brag about this level of early access content lol

I didn't even know some of those were PS exclusive?

PS4 early access? lol okay then R*, I guess i'll just play other people's games in the meantime. Why don't you want me to engage with your product?

 

 

That said I'll probably just stick with Spoils of War anyway, which is actually pretty good :)

As if horse races were not boring enough, R* adds some more.

 

"You don't like what I cooked for dinner? Here is some more for you"

 

I wont even bother trying this new game mode. Still waiting for some innovative PVE.

Just anything co-op would be great lol. Survival mode or anything. These dead on arrival PvP adversary modes are completely pointless.

They are actually quite funny. Finally a race mode where everything isnmt centered towards ramming other players.

As far as PVE goes, yes

 

But talking about "Innovative" PVE, I fear the wait could last long if not eternally.

Hopefully the morning coat isn't to far above my rank (22) right now. Been saving gold for it but I'm attached to my stack now, took forever for me to get it there lol.

I actually did a few horse races last night for the first time and had a blast. So I have some cautious optimism with the new ones.

Why are they even working on this kind of bullsh*t?

They should be working 150% on making a functioning bounty/mental state system, wagons, properties/businesses and most of all, all the bugs; Horse reset, carcass despawn, mission DC/blackscreen, boring AF run and gun hunting system, animal not spawning, horse speed that are all the same.

 

Adding some new game mode will give everyone like 1 hour worth of fun. Making a proper 2019ish freemode online game would give us years of fun.

The game is a barebone pile of garbage, noone cares about capture the flag or mariokart game modes.

I can't bring myself to play this game anymore. Not in its current state anyway.

There's things I'd like to unlock; explosive ammo, upgraded tent, special saddle, etc (I know, I'm trailing behind in the XP game).

However, I just.. can't do it. I'm getting the same feeling as when I was grinding in GTA, except worse.

It feels like a job. It's not fun anymore. I work every day, get home exhausted. I don't want to start working another job.

 

Edit: sorry mods, should've posted in the B&M thread. I'm just aghast at what they're releasing.

I bought one of the Morning Tail coats. But that isn't what I'm waiting for to unlock. I wonder how long this dripfeed is going to last?

When I was aiming for rank 100, the last 30 or so ranks were such a f*cking chore, in fact I think rank 50 to rank 100 took me 2 months of playing around work. In the end I did nothing but Story missions from around rank 70 onwards, just to get the monkey off my back.

 

But now everything is unlocked I'm enjoying the game more than I have before. I don't know why it feels different, but somehow it does.

The last items and adversary mode should be unlocked on the 9th of April.
