Since the launch of Red Dead Online at the end of last year, those that have been playing on PlayStation 4 have received numerous benefits, such as gaining early access to things like weapons and new Red Dead Online Showdown Modes. Now, it appears that Sony fans are about to see these benefits extended even further, as Rockstar has just announced that PlayStation Plus members will begin receiving “special awards” very soon.
As indicated in a recent post on the PlayStation Blog, fans that are playing Red Dead Online on a PS4, and have an active PlayStation Plus subscription, will be receiving exclusive awards every month. The first of these Red Dead Online PS4 exclusive awards comes as three free treasure maps, which players can use to locate stashes of gold, tonics, crafting pamphlets, and more.
These Red Dead Online treasure maps will be given to all players, with PlayStation Plus memberships, that login between June 10 and July 8, and fans can expect to receive them within 24 hours of their first login during this period. Players can then collect this PS4 exclusive Red Dead Online award from a post office or the lockbox located in their camps. From there, the treasure maps can be used, from inside a player’s satchel, to reveal the location of a hidden stash.
As previously mentioned, these Red Dead Redemption 2 online PS4 exclusive awards will change monthly, and the blog post advises players to check back “each month for more details on new monthly benefits in Red Dead Online.” Furthermore, these new Red Dead 2 online PS4 exclusive awards are not intended to replace the early access that Sony fans have already been receiving, and will instead be “in addition to these ongoing benefits.”
A little over three weeks ago, a massive Red Dead Online update brought new missions, events, and more to the multiplayer component of Red Dead Redemption 2. Since then, Rockstar has continued to add new content to RDO, while simultaneously addressing some of the game’s most serious problems. Indeed, it seems that now is as good a time as ever to be playing Red Dead Online, and these RDR2 online PS4 exclusive awards mean that it is an especially good time to be a Sony fan.
Red Dead Online is available now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
